Summary: The game overall _can_ become monotonous a bit, but I think the quirkiness and story make up for it. As a $15 regular price game, you can't expect any revolutionary. The game has a fun, quirkiness that a lot of other games lack, which I appreciate and think makes it unique.
Summary: Costume Quest is a role-playing game created by Double Fine Productions and published by THQ. It was designed by Tasha Harris and has been available for a wide variety of platforms. It's Halloween and you and your twin are about to go trick-or-treating.
Summary: I brought this title for my daughter (she is six), and she fell in love with it immediately. This is a game we played together and both enjoyed. The gameplay is on the easy side, yet it remains fun.
Summary: Step into the realm of a child’s imagination on Halloween, where you battle monsters as often as you get candy. This fateful night, your parents are making you trick-or-treat with your twin, much to your chagrin. You have an awesome robot costume while your sibling is dressed as a lame candy corn.
Summary: Costume Quest is a very, very silly game. But it's also one of the funniest and most imaginative games I have played in a long time. Halloween is here, and monsters are taking all the candy from your neighborhood.
Summary: This is an excellent game that I really enjoyed playing. The "transform" animations are awesome, the concept is fun and different, and the game play is easy to follow, even for non-gamers or small children. That said, it's a little too easy and repetitive. By the end, I was ready for it to end.
Summary: Picked this up on some kind of Amazon sale for only $3! Couldn't pass up such a deal. Great game, fun puzzles, charming characters. Just wish it had voiceacting. No matter how you slice it for $3 it's a great deal.
Summary: The official GameInformer review makes plenty of valid points about this game, not the least of which is the ill-conceived save system, but disregarding this game on the whole, I believe, would be a mistake. Now, I need to be upfront that this game is more or less tailor-made for me.
