Psychonauts

22 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Tim Schafer and his talented colleagues at Double Fine have created the finest platformer available not only for the Xbox, but for all current generation consoles. How lucky you Xboxers are that you get to play it first. Psychonauts is a unique, fully realized world complemented with beautiful, artistically-minded aesthetics, addictive gameplay, and a touching regard for the humanity of its characters.

Psychonauts Review

Softpedia
8 January 2007
  • Conclusion: Psychonauts remained in the public's conscience as the game that could have been the one. It was amazingly well received by reviewers, but had lousy sales. Nonetheless, it remains a game that needs to be played, so users must know what to look for in future adventures.
  • Pros: As I said, Psychonauts is all about the dialogues, and there are very few games than can come close in terms of acting and humor. Everything is amazingly funny and you find yourself talking with everyone just to see what are they going to say. This particular quality makes the seven years between the initial launch and the port to the Linux platform to become almost irrelevant. The poor graphical quality can be ignored when confronted with the amazing storytelling cap...
  • Cons: I've played the game on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, with a GeForce 8800 GT graphic card and 302.17 drivers. I fiddled with all the options, but I constantly got some weird artifacts, especially because of the lighting and shadows. I'm not sure if this is a general problem or it's just me, but I have to mention it here. The controls are also a little bit iffy, for lack of a better term. The vertical axis starts reversed for some reason and it's at a different speed then the hori...

  • Excerpt: The title screen to Psychonauts is an interesting one. There’s a large brain in front of a psychedelic background and when “start” is pressed a strange boy appears. I just sat there for a few seconds until I realized I actually control this boy. I ran around the brain until I found a doorway leading to “New Game.” This title screen is just one of the many trippy touches that makes Psychonauts such a memorable 3D platformer. The boy with the goggles is named Raz.

  • Conclusion: Schafer has done it again. Not only has he created a polished title, but he has packed it with a fascinating storyline, beautiful environments, exciting vocals, and wonderful humor. Majesco seems to be on a role as of late developing supernatural-based titles. Just before this title was released, Phantom Dust hit the scene; and Advent Rising was dropped only a few months later. Whatever the case may be, Majesco seems to have taken a liking to this genre.

  • Excerpt: Psychonauts is de nieuwe game van Tim Schafer, de man achter de games Grim Fandango en Day of the Tentacle, die allebei keigoed waren. Wordt dit Schafer's nieuwe meesterwerk of is het afgelopen met zijn succes?
