Costume Quest 2 isn't a long game - it took me around six hours to complete, including almost all the side quests - but even a short game can outstay its welcome, and while there is still a great concept at the core of Double Fine's Halloween series, if anything this sequel is even further away from nailing it than its predecessor. Shallow and repetitive, Costume Quest 2's winsome appearance and occasional wit never quite obscure the busywork at its core.

Costume Quest 2 improves on the first's combat and funny campaign, but the health and navigation systems need a revamp.

Adorable, amusing, colorful and well-animated, but the combat is too simplistic and repetitive to remain interesting throughout the game.

A disappointing sequel that only compounds the failures of the original, while also featuring Double Fine's least amusing script so far.
