Costume Quest

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Costume Quest is a downloadable home console game on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Family Friendly Gaming was given a code for the Xbox 360 version. This is a role playing game based on Halloween. In fact it is pretty apparent in the first few minutes of this game that the writer(s) love that holiday, and have created a video game that worships it. If that is not strange enough, well we will get there.

  • Excerpt: From the studio of Tim Schafer, the man responsible for such cult classics as Psychonauts, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango comes Costume Quest. Double Fine’s latest project is a cell-shaded and Halloween-inspired RPG adventure for PSN and XBLA. Costume Quest has quite a reputation to uphold, Schafer’s back catalogue is guilty of being intelligently designed, hilariously scripted and ultimately very fun to play.

  • Excerpt: I don't like turn-based RPGs. They bore me, with their stilted combat and repetitive encounters. But I like Costume Quest... a turn-based RPG. This downloadable title from THQ and Tim Schafer's Double Fine manages to blend a fun Trick or Treat Halloween setting with simple RPG mechanics, making for a game that even a self-confessed turn-based hater had a great time with. The plot set-up is right out of a children's movie or cartoon.

Costume Quest (Xbox 360)

  • Excerpt: I love classic RPGs in theory. But in practice, the dated graphics, random battles and endless grinding often overpower my nostalgia. Maybe Double Fine had someone like me in mind when they created Costume Quest, a downloadable only title on Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network.

  • Summary: If you’re a fan of Double Fine’s previous efforts, then you’re likely to find plenty of joy in " Costume Quest ". It’s a short game with obvious budget limitations, but rather than cover every base too thinly, the dev team have mainlined specific elements, resulting in a game that is endlessly charming.

  • Summary: It's all of the fun and excitement of Halloween told as a traditional turn-based role-playing game. Sound weird? Well, then you aren't familiar with Double Fine, the makers of Brutal Legend and Psychonauts. If you're looking for a great holiday-themed adventure game with laugh out loud funny writing, look no further than Costume Quest! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Excerpt: Many people wondered what Double Fine Productions would do next after Brutal Legend came out last year. As it turned out the studio was working on several different titles at once, the first of which was revealed to be the downloadable Halloween themed RPG Costume Quest. THQ signed on as publisher, and despite the fact that the game was revealed earlier this year it came out just in time for the holiday.
