Congratulations, fellow Steamer. You are so incredibly unsure wether to buy this game or not, that you've traveled to see obscure and unpopular reviews for it. Well, like a lot of people triumphed above my review, Double Fine's Costume Quest is well worth your Hamilton.
I'm not saying Wren and Reynold's interactive debut is perfect, though. For example, during cutscenes, you can't read the halarious dialogue at your leisure. After a certain amount of time, the game will assume you are done, and move to the next speech bubble. I didn't exactly have a problem with it, until my 5-year-old cousin wanted to play. She's not exactly Speedy Gonzalez when it comes to reading. Also, there are some glitches, like when Lucy and Everett stay behind an arcade machine while you're on the other side of the mall. Said glitches don't interfere with gameplay, though, so don't fret.
Like I commented on before, the dialogue is really funny. The story essentially revolves one twin trying to rescue the other from goblins who mistook the other for candy corn, and ultimately stopping a witch from stealing all the candy, thus ridding the world of Halloween. Yes, it's a Double Fine game.
The trick-or-treat gameplay has its ups with me, as you won't know wether you'll get a candy shower from a grownup, or a chance to try your new costume's attacks on a goblin. I highly recommend visiting Sadie. Those stamps will help. Overworld puzzles are pretty straight-forward. Overall, this game is a Halloween classic, and a must-play. Take that for what it's worth, or just go to the next review, as they, too, gush this game's awesomeness in your face.
