Costume Quest has a lot of good things going on for it. The game takes you on a journey of the imagination as some children’s quest for candy on one Halloween night quickly turns into something much more. Ultimately, this game is just very well done and has a “soul” that should easily appeal to a vast audience.

The level design is charming and exploring the maps is fun. The whole concept of “trick-or-treating” being a fundamental part of the gameplay is brilliantly done. The story is basically one giant trope, but the way it is told is delightful. The characters are likeable and the humor is clean but entertaining. Even the style in which you warp into old-school, turn-based battles is executed well and synergizes perfectly with the atmosphere of the game. This game is a quintessential example of how several good things can work together to create something great.

As I alluded to, one of the most charming aspects of Costume Quest is the way “trick-or-treating” in the game world is a central part of progressing the game. You knock on doors and are either given candy (treat) or have to fight a battle (trick). This leads to another splendidly charming feature of the game, which I also alluded to earlier: the battle warp-ins. Depending on what costumes your characters are wearing, they change from little kids into various gallant warriors with nothing but the power of their imagination. From there, the battles play out in the old-school, turn-based RPG style that was prevalent in the 90s.

Aside from that, you may also want to explore the levels, find secret areas, meet characters, and do side-quests and mini-games to gather more candy and collect the trading cards. There is plenty to do!

Costume Quest is a charming little game that makes for quite an enjoyable experience. As I said, I feel it can appeal to a wide audience. I would posit: if it sounds like the type of game you may enjoy, it will probably be a specific game you do enjoy… if you decide to get it.

I really enjoyed playing this game.

Story: Funny. Search and rescue. Fight the evil one and monsters on a turn based fight .
You will dress up as a robot, a vampire... and each of them will have powers to use against the monsters.

Music: Not the best I have seen but... it's ok.

Game: Isometric view except the fights.

When to play it? Halloween will be the best moment xD

An outstanding Halloween themed adventure, that made my weekend and I am so glad I own this lovely thing.

+ Captures the Halloween theme perfectly, very fun to play and takes a lot of time to finish.
+ Characters look good, animations are great, and music and sound effects are really awesome.
+ A very funny story, and the character's dialogues are really funny and very well-done.
+ Very detailed world design and many places to visit.
+ Various main and optional quests to do, and so many stuff to find.
+ A lot of costumes to make, each with its own ability that can help you proceed to the next place.
+ The battles looks great, and their layout and all are good.
+ Fun for everyone, suitable for kids or adults.
+ Candy candy CANDY.

- Weird fps performance, when at a battle or a small cut-scene it locks at 30, but if you press esc and resume it goes back to 60, I am not sure if anyone else is having this problem but it does for me, however it felt normal to me at 30fps.
- Battles gets kinda boring and repetitive, you get abilities and stuff to increase your power and new costumes, but the battles are basically the same, good at first but sorta boring near the end.

Rating 9/10 without doubt, If it did not have the small fps issue and faster battles it would'v easily gotten 10/10 , because it really is perfect, the story is great, the gameplay is really fun and the dialogues and everything is just perfect, its like watching a Halloween-type movie with a fun story.

This is probably one of the cutest, most charming games I've played.

The game mechanics aren't anything ground breaking. It's a pretty straight forward RPG battle system where you transform into the literally larger-than-life version of your chosen Halloween costume. But the game's world is what you wanted to experience when you were 10 years old. You wanted to BE your costume (which picking was one of the most important decisions you made all year). You wanted life to be very cartoony. Candy was more precious than money.

The game oozes charm. It has child characters that are actually likable, funny, and clever, which is pretty rare in video games. The monsters and villians are pretty funny. Basically, it's just so fun!

This is a very good game, the only drawback to me is that it doesn't have portuguese subtitles, so my kids can't play in my absence.
