Psychonauts is one of those games that can be rather difficult to review. On one hand, you have a fantastically unique world that never ceases to entertain, while on the other hand you have a slightly disappointing gameplay execution that yields...

It's no secret that I'm not a big fan of platform titles. And while Psychonauts is not a pure platform title, there are enough platform-style elements in it for the game to be, just maybe, not my cup of tea. And yet, every once in a while, a title can...

Great graphics of surreal worlds; you’ll feel you’re inside a waking dream, and the worlds will remind you of something you’ve felt before, but can’t place your finger on ; Witty, original characters that cut against standard clichés and make the...

Some say it’s a bit easy to beat, so I’ll acknowledge that, even though I found it “just right

Psychonauts takes you on a red-hot journey into the minds of others, delivering comedy and action galore while offering the fun of using psychic abilities while exploring worlds that will remind you of emotions, rather than locations.

The music even picks up on all of this as the game is filled with some very Saturday morning cartoon like tunes that fit the mood perfectly. When we move more into the weekdays, I think I heard several remixes of the Rocky and Patton themes when the...

Tim Schafer read my mind

Unfortunately it's not a perfect game. Psychonauts is also available on the PC and Xbox, and it seems to have been designed for these more robust platforms. While the areas are well detailed and look great, the PS2 just doesn't seem powerful enough for...

The best thing to happen to the adventure community in recent years was Lucas Arts decision to no longer make adventure games.

Psychonauts - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

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...

Is it just as slick as the Xbox version?

Psychonauts on the PS2 doesn't quite match up to the Xbox edition, thanks to its slight graphic issues. However, it should by no means be missed, if only for its high level of invention, its bodacious gameplay, and fabulous sound presentation. It's a...

Tim Schafer's unique vision of summer camp is still a great ride, despite a few graphical bumps along the way.

Gorgeous, imaginitive visuals; snappy dialogue and plenty of laugh-out-loud situations; engaging storyline; fun psychic powers

Fairly standard (and occasionally frustrating) platforming action; item collection can feel like a chore; PS2 version just doesn't look as nice

Island . Schafer is one of the most imaginative minds to ever develop in the gaming industry, and a trip through his cerebral mass would be an interesting journey, just to see where Schafer comes up with his characters and...

Another Tim Schafer masterpiece of creative, comic storytelling and adventure; Plenty of different tasks and adventuring to keep you busy; Great use of neon and psychedelic colors

Constant load times switching between areas of the game are tiresomely annoying; Requires a lot of revisiting previously travailed locales to complete missions; Paths to completing mission objectives oftentimes hard too figure out
