Really cute and fun little game. It‘s pretty short as rpg, but you‘ll have a fun time playing it. It‘s simple and pretty easy. You play as the kids, form your party and collect candies and costume parts made of cardborad. When the fight starts you‘re being transformed into your costumes (robot, ninja, knight etc.) and the fight begins. Fight system is generic turn based rpg system but it doesn‘t need to be different. Seriously go and buy it, it‘s really really good game i promise you will fall in love with this little cute gem :)

Absolutely adorable game that oozes Doublefine charm. You play as a bunch of kids who get wrapped up in a halloween monster plot to steal all the world's candy. The gameplay is somewhere inbetween the Mario RPG games (Superstar saga, Paper Mario) and South Park Stick of Truth, with your kids actually turning into their costume for the battle. There's a heap of unlockable costumes which act as character classes and a few other clever ways to customise your guys. It's just all round fun.

I really wouldn't be surprised if the guys that made Stick of Truth were inspired by this. They're ridiculously similar, in a good way! It's not perfect, but it's a lot of fun. Definitely grabbing the sequel :D

I can't believe I had this little gem for so long in my library and have not played it.

The game is about a brother and sister going trick or treating on Halloween when they come across real monsters who want to steal all the candy in the neighborhood. As one of the siblings is getting abducted by the monsters, the other, sets of to find a way to rescue them.

You must go through your neighborhood and collect all the candy from all the houses. Along the way you must:

- solve side-quests
- battle monsters with your awesome Halloween Costume Superpowers
- deal with bullies
- make new friends to join your team
- find as much candy as possible
- find and make new Halloween costumes, each with their own unique special powers on and off the battle fields
- collect Halloween Trading Cards you can trade in-game
- buy upgrades for your Halloween Costumes
- Level up to get stronger and have more health to battle badder enemies

The game captures the creepy Halloween atmosphere amazingly well with the little background noises, creepy sounds and empty streets, giving it a great feel to it. The Story is very nice, dialogue is well done and the way the game is graphically presented is very cute.
The quests are great and dealing with the other kid's problems in the neighborhood is fun too,

While the costumes are just costumes during your adventures, during the battles you transform into what ever it is you are wearing.

The Battle's are simple but the imagination in regards to how the costumes translate into the "real" battle suits, is brilliantly done.

I would definitely recommend this game and if you are a parent and have kids they most likely will enjoy playing this with you very much.

Depending on the age of your kids the atmosphere might be a little creepy but nothing to serious :)

For those of you that are in for a one way ticket ride throughout a rather comical world with cool challenges and heroic action scenes should know that this game offers exactly what you are looking for. Although the game is rather short, resulting in an 8 hours play to cover completely both the game and the extension, Costume Quest has the talent of keeping you seated for hours as you are constantly plundered by the affirmation "I'll do just this one and then quit".

From the graphics perspective the game is truly gorgeous, combining the animated themed models with comic book influences and a really well built atmosphere.

Even tho you will spend most of your gameplay surfing through text lines, the game is still very enjoyable having some good humor and offering you a rather challenging comical journey, with extreme boss fights, that you won't regret.

I enjoyed Costume Quest quite a bit, until I reached a game-breaking bug, two hours in. More on that in a bit.

Costume Quest is a streamlined RPG. It's a fun game, but not particularly difficult. The combat is a simplistic timing game, and the quests have a way of fulfilling themselves as you wander around the map. But that's OK, because Costume Quest doesn't present itself as a serious RPG.

I's a breezy, light RPG with a sense of humor, that begs to be played straight through in a sitting. Truely, it's an RPG/Platformer hybrid, in that there are environmental puzzles that must be worked out to advance the map and the story. It's a mix that works.

...until you come to the Autumn Haven shopping mall. There's a game-breaking bug in the camping equipment store: If you walk between the sleeping bag and the tent, your companion will follow you into that wedge, and block you in. None of your special skills will get you out of this position.

If this happens to you, don't exit to the menu! Crash the game manually, so it doesn't have a chance to autosave your position. If it saves your position, you'll be stuck there when you start again, and you'll have to start over from the beginning of the game. Seriously. Check the Steam forums, I'm not the only one with this problem.

So, yes. I like Costume Quest, and I think you will, too. I want to complete this game, but I don't want to replay the first two hours again. I give Costume Quest a thumbs up, but be careful in the mall so you don't lose your game like I did.
