Top Critic Average
Psychonauts 2 is the best extension of a successful first part, the game has maintained its main ideas and was able to build on it and offer more ideas and additions both in terms of the distinctive story presented to us by Tim Schaefer or even the style of play and design of the distinctive and fun stages, made us in front of one of the best titles of 2021 and perhaps the best Xbox Series games to date.
As witty, eccentric and imaginative as the 2005 action-platformer, with a more developed understanding of mental health.
Improved platforming underpins a glorious return to one of gaming's most inventive and empathic universes.
Even with a few rough edges, Psychonauts 2 is just about everything I could have hoped for from this long-awaited sequel.
Psychonauts 2 captures the spirit of '90s cartoons and channels it into an imaginative, inventive adventure that never fails to find heart and humor in every one of its consciousness-expanding encounters.
A great sequel that is just as surreal and imaginative as the original and manages to be both a silly comedy platformer and a surprisingly affecting character study of regret and lost love.
Well worth the wait and better than the original, Psychonauts 2 hits its stride early and never loses steam
Psychonaut 2's levels are some of the most inventive in the platforming genre. There's an over-the-top cooking game show where you carry food stuff through a giant platforming gauntlet. There's also a humongous mailroom sorting office where you jump from flying envelope to flying envelope, all the while avoiding the vortex of letters below. You'll visit highly imaginative, gravity-bending dreamscape after dreamscape.
Psychonauts 2 does more than just fill the shoes of its beloved quirky predecessor, it sets itself apart as a classic in its own right.
