Killing Time in the Adult World

TotalPlayStation.com
8 November 2010
  • Conclusion: A cute game that is a great way of killing time. Collecting and transforming into new costumes is always great, but the repetition and simplified battles are not justified by the $15 asking price. Once on sale, it's definitely worth getting.

Costume Quest (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: In a most fortunate turn of events (for us, anyway), Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners around the world have only had to wait a single year to get their hands on Double Fine Production’s next game, and while it doesn’t match up to the epic nature of the studio’s previous colossal titles,

Expert Review

Realm of Gaming
1 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Allow me, if you will, to pose a rather odd set of questions: When you were little, and you bought a new pair of shoes did you immediately run around the store or leap through the air because you believed these new footwear items would make you faster or jump higher?

Costume Quest (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
23 October 2010
  • Excerpt: When I was a kid, every day was about waiting for the next big holiday. Whether it was March waiting for Easter, November waiting for Christmas, or October waiting for Halloween, there’s something about holidays that makes most think back to days gone by.

  • Conclusion: By effectively clinging on to the Halloween aesthetic from beginning to end, Costume Quest evokes the often forgotten nostalgia of childhood. It manages to create a fantastical world without resorting to high fantasy.

A few fundamental problems sour a game that exudes delightful personality.

GameSpot
20 October 2010
  • Summary: Costume Quest is a rudimentary, turn-based role-playing game. There aren't any multitiered tactical options; there aren't layers of leveling systems or branching skill trees; and there aren't lists of equipment with granular attributes.
  • Pros: Great visual design brings Halloween world to life, Clever and humorous writing, Costumes eventually make battles more strategic
  • Cons: Slow start makes battles tedious, Art is sometimes overshadowed by cluttered display information

Costume Quest Review

Eurogamer
21 October 2010
  • Conclusion: But why would you want to? Like Psychonauts before it, Costume Quest presents a world that deserves to be savoured as well as saved. It's another delightful look into the minds of children; a window into their vivid imaginations, and the wonderful places their ideas and dreams can take them – and...
