Ролевая игра в мультяшной, детской стилистике. По сюжету у главного героя во время хэллоуина, гоблины похищают сестру (или брата) заодно с конфетами, которые они добывали во время праздника. Наша цель- спасти мир, сестру, наказать зло, обрести друзей и т. д. по ГОСТу.
Графика в игре под комиксы - простенькая, но приятная.
Ролевая система примитивная, из настраиваемого только боевые карты, дающие новые способности или плюсики к статам.
Основной минус игры – однообразие. В игре четыре локации и в каждой надо делать одно и тоже – обойти все дома, найти детей, найти карточку, собрать костюмы (простите за спойлеры). И так из уровня в уровень.
Игру могу посоветовать купить на скидке. Она звёзд с неба может и не хватает, но неприязни тоже не не вызывает.

Обычно, когда встречаешь в описании фразу, что игра берёт за душу и не отпускает, то это означает не много, пока однажды не натолкнёшься на одну из таких. В моём случае открытием стала игра Costume Quest, обладающая магическим духом Хэллоуина накладывать на играющих свои чары прельщения. Без всяких сомнений, игра потребует сноровки и скорости реакции для аркадного режима в сочетании с терпеливым исследованием всех потаённых уголков окрестностей и бесед с соседскими детишками и даже не лишёнными остроумия жалобными монстрами, со всей устрашающей угрюмостью просящих разрешить их жизненно необходимую задачу. Одна только беда, что никто из взрослых не верит в их существование, а они повсюду! Злобные гоблины захватили дома и отбирают конфеты, а ничуть не уступающие им в злобливости орки попрятались в торговом центре и там дожидаются заглядывающих к ним детишек с конфетами. Монстры воинственны и что бы сломить их и обратить зелёных увольней в позорное бегство потребуются конечно же костюмы и боевые марки.

Марки продаются за собранные конфеты, а конфеты, как и полагается на Хеллоуин, облагаются данью "сладости или гадости" по окрестностям. Однако самые вкусняшки достаются из потаённых гробов, хорошо припрятанных в канализации или на заднем дворе за большим забором, пробраться через который помогают исключительно умения правильно выбранного костюма. И какие только ещё квесты не предётся решать за конфеты и в каких только не придётся поучаствовать сражениях с гоблинами и всё за то, что бы получить угощения слизежуков, прилипшей на шузы жвачки, желейных мозгов и всякой прочей праздничной бяки!

От правильно подобранных сочетаний костюмов и боевых марок собственно и зависит во многом исход сражений, наравне со скоростью и со сноровкой играющего в умении успевать нажать по нескольку раз за секунду строго определённую клавишу, а отсюда вопрос игры с геймпадом становится уже не просто удобством, а приравнивается к возможности её прохождения. Поковырять козявки в носу во время аркадного боя, как бы празднично эти самые козявки не смотрелись на Хэллоуин, вам явно не прокатит. Да и надо крутить роликами, что бы спасти близняшку, позорно нарядившуюся говорящей конфетой на ножках, а потому и схваченную дубоголовым гоблином что бы скормить её какому-то своему боссу. Да вот только не на ту малышню он нарвался!

Приключалка явно задалась и часы игры незаметно пролетают как мгновения. Обзаводитесь напоминалками и не позволяйте игре увлечь вас с головой. Она останется с вами в любой день и каждый раз вы всегда сможете оказаться снова на волшебном празднике Хэллоуина с героями игры, ложитесь спать и живите реальной жизнью, а игра, насколько бы она не была заманчиво увлекательной как Costume Quest, всегда останется только игрой.

И конечно же мои личные впечатления от игры самые фантастические.

Забавная, приятная для глаз и ушей, довольно лёгкая и милая игра о сладостях, дружбе, а также о силе воображения, способной превратить детские костюмы на Хэллоуин в настоящее боевое снаряжение. Интересная задумка с поиском и применением способностей разных костюмов, бои в JRPG-стиле с быстрыми действиями, позволяющими нанести больше или получить меньше урона, ненапрягающие побочные задания, юмор.
Короткая игра, но пару приятных вечеров подарить может)

Наверное если бы я был американским школьником и мне подарили эту игру в канун хэллоуина, она бы стала моей самой любимой игрой на века после ковадути. Но поскольку традиции походов за конфетами у нас нет, остается только сравнивать с тем что видишь в (мульт)фильмах, и тут на мой взгляд атмосфера праздника передается просто отлично. Ходишь по улицам, освещенным тыквенными фонариками, стучишься в дома, получаешь конфеты, соревнуешься с другими школьниками. Игра была бы интересной даже если бы в ней ничего кроме этого не было. Но тут в некоторых домах сидят злые монстры, которые хотят забрать твои конфеты! И они украли твою сестру!! (или брата, если ты сам сестра!!!) Бой с ними происходит как в любой веобушной рпг без души, которые я терпеть не могу. Но все это красочно анимировано, разбавлено qte и не занимает много времени, так что впечатление совершенно не портится. Костюмы, краеугольный камень геймплея, дают спецспособности как в бою с монстрами, где они превращаются в гандамов, супергероев, статуи свободы и так далее, так и в настоящей ирл жизни, например световой меч банально помогает разогнать темноту.
Вообще игра похожа на эпизод South Park с рейтингом Е, группа детей на фоне ничего не понимающих взрослых ищет приключений на свои костюмы, только без шуток про ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, политику и евреев.

Простенькая адвенчура с кидалтовской атмосферой и ... cute cute cute.
Озвучки героев нет, только репетатив мьюзик. Бои наскучивают после первой главы, хотя боссы вносят чуть чутть разнообразия. На клавиатуре играть невозможно, контролер онли. Короткая, очень короткая. Ачивментов мало, они простые. Бесконечные конфеты.

НО переигрывать хочется в третий раз.
В игре есть тетрадка с коллекционными карточками.
У костюмов есть СУПЕРсила. И вообще они в сражениях пыщ дыщ ба бах пиу пиу.
Атмосфера. Боже какая атмосфера.
И... кути кути кути.

Стоит своих денег. А уж если есть купон.

Да блин, отличная игра же! Рассчитывал проникнуться атмосферой Хэллоуина, а окунулся в атмосферу детства (что есть круче). Юмор в игре очень ОК, прям понравился. Единственно отметил бы некую затянутость, возможно, небольшую. Но не суть, в целом игра приятная и оставляет только положительные эмоции.

8/10

Замечательная игра! С фирменным юмором от Тима Шафера и волшебной атмосферой праздника! Достаточно простая и однообразная, но геймплейного запала хватает до финальных титров, поскольку она относительно короткая. Тем кто хочет расслабиться, рекомендую эту игру!

Игра хорошая и понравится тем, кто нестандартно мыслит. Так же тут хорошая стилистика, она меня и зацепила, признаться купил её чисто из-за оформления, а так прикольно, можно расслабиться и повеселиться, никакой особой нагрузки игра не несёт. Рекомендую всем творческим людям, вам понравится визуальная состовляющая игры.

I Like:
+ charming and humorous presentation
+ free selectable Costumes & abilities
+ motivating collect and exploring

I Dont Like:
- low extent
- very simple combat system
- totally harmless difficulty
- no overview map

With real monsters, magical costumes and supernatural abilities to try a couple of kids in the shelter on halloween to stop a witch. The player travel from door to door and collect candy to gain access to new levels.
What makes this crazy RPG so wild is that every funny costume transform into a huge roboter or other crazy giant whatever things when you go into a battle. The roboter can fire missiles out of its chest to kill the monsters and have them explode into candy.

You can change their costumes and each has different basic attacks and after 3 turns you get a special attack.
In addition, choose which moves dish out there is a simple quick-time element where attack and blocks by placing the appropriate button strengthened with precise timing. By defeating monsters, players and their companions earn more candy, gain new costumes, and unlock new abilities. Along the way, the player’s party is joined by other neighborhood children, every child with other costumes and abilities.

The story from beginning to end is a nice little story that has to laugh at each corner, the end was pretty funny too.
For completing the smaller side quests including rare items, special tools, and weapons to use in combat.

The graphics are nice and very good for this kind of game. I have almost nothing to complain about with the graphics for this game, as it is what it is.

Costume Quest seems like a new move from Double Fine. Here you find a lot of cartoony charm and humor.
If your looking for an easy game, cute characters, awesome battles and a funny setting, it is a nice add on to your games library.

Score: 70 / 100

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.

Costume Quest is a cute, creative, charming, simple to play, easy to master RPG set in Halloween. There is definitely a sense of atmosphere that is set with the colors, lighting and art style. You'll wander through a neighborhood, a mall and a carnival. Everything is beautiful and charming with a slight spooky edge to some places, but its a charming spooky not a horrific kind. After you select a gender, you are quickly thrown into the story. Your sibling has been kidnapped by goblins that need candy and since the sibling is wearing a giant candy corn costume you understand how mistakes can be made.

Speaking of candy, you'll find it everywhere, because its the currency of the game. In the map there is an attack button to knock candy out of objects. You'll find candy after battles, in treasure coffins, completing quests and you'll trick-or-treat for it going door to door. Of course there's not always a stranger giving candy, sometimes it a goblin that results in a battle.

In battles, you're not just kids in costumes, you become giants. Your little cardboard robot costume turns into a towering robot, a french-fry costume becomes a mega fry crab, a statue of liberty costume becomes the statue of liberty! So its a little pretend, and thankfully the game lets you skip transformation animations to start each battle.

The combat is really simple and very well animated. First your entire team completes a turn, from the leader of the party to the last member. Then the enemies will each take a turn. You have a limited selection of what to do, attack or a special power every 3 turns. Different costumes have different basic attacks, each with its own way of getting a critical hit. Timing, to press a button or key at a specific moment, others have you wiggling the analog stick, others have you button mashing the same button or key. It keeps you watching the battles and make the long animations feel like less tedious to watch. The special skills range from damaging all enemies, healing all allies, majorly damaging one enemy, hiding an ally and other things depending which costume you're wearing.

When the enemies attack, you'll be given a chance to lessen the attack with a quick button press. These button presses are different each time, which is nice, but I feel like even timed correctly, there's still a chance the block won't be successful. Some enemies really telegraph their attacks, such as jumping into the air with a strike. Enemies don't just attack, they'll cast heal, shield, strength and fire. Everything you've seen in RPGs before, but this is just simple.

The enemies don't have too much variety, goblins, big goblins and ravens, but each 'race' can have a 'class.' The graphics look great and they are in full 3D, its just there aren't that many of them. Each enemy has a level, which is good, but early on in the game enemies feel far too overpowered when you have a party of 2 characters. You'll never have a party more than 3, but neither will the enemy party.

When you are on the map, you can see enemies march around, so there really aren't any random battles other than the trick-or-treat battles. You can even sneak up behind map enemies and attack them so when the battle begins, all enemies take a small amount of damage. Its a nice feature in what can be tedious, thoughtless battles. Every battle seems to play out the same no matter what enemy classes you face. You just need to time everything correctly and sit through your special ability animations.

You can also buy stamps that you can equip to each of your characters that will give them added benefits such as dodging, more HP, regenerating HP, counter attacks, higher attack damage, higher critical damage, a stun skill, the ability to poison a foe or damage all foes next to the target. These simple stamps do a lot to really personalize the game and I feel like you need the stamps to succeed in the game.

When party members fall in battle, they're back after the battle. Everyone gets full health after every battle. In fact, when your party gets wiped out. You just respawn back on the map next to the enemy that killed you. There is no consequence for failure in the game and I feel the game is smoother because of it.

Every battle gives you experience points, but so does completing quests. Since the enemies are limited, so is the experience. So that's why I had to turn to stamps in order to win battles and even then a lot of battles seemed like only luck got me through the first two hours of battles. There is also a level cap on your party and you don't level up individual characters, but rather the entire party.

On the map you'll talk with NPCs and read their little text boxes. The town, mall, carnival and village feel alive. There are plenty of NPCs to give you quests, such as find this or do that. Other costumed kids want non usable items that you'll find from winning battles and some quests have you finding kids that are playing hide and seek. There is even a well done apple bobbing minigame where red apples count as one point to your score and green apples count as 3 points. Its a nice deviation from goblin slaying monotony.

Every costume doesn't just have its own special and basic attack, most of them have a practical use on maps. As a robot, you can speed around on your rocket skates to jump off ramps. These rocket skates are the game's run and its so much faster than just walking. The ninja costume can vanish, the fries costume baits people into following you, the knight has a shield to protect you from things overhead and other costumes help too. There is a big variety of costumes and you can find pieces to make new costumes. It adds to the game variety, even if I ended up using the robot for the skates and the statue of liberty for her healing power.

In all this is a 5 or 6 hour game that is easy to play and easy to finish after the first two hours. There is even DLC that keeps the game going in a different setting. If it wasn't for the cute charm and the extras like costumes and stamps, I'm not sure I could recommend it because of how dull and mindless the fights became.

NOTE: This is a shortened review without screenshots.For my full review, please visit Real Gamer Reviews

Costume Quest is a Halloween-themed, turn-based RPG developed by Tim Schafer’s crew at Double Fine Productions. For those who don’t know, Tim Schafer is the mastermind behind critically acclaimed (but not necessarily financially successful) games such as Psychonauts, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle and more recently, Broken Age. In many ways, I feel that Tim Schafer is the Tim Burton of video games. Whilst not all of his games (or in Burton’s case, movies) are necessarily fantastic, all of them share a common, whimsical and imaginative style with a quirky sense of humour. Therefore, going in, I had big expectations going into this game. Needless to say, given the big red thumbs down above this review, these expectations weren’t quite met.

Story:
The game takes place on Halloween, where you (the character that you pick) and your sister/brother (the character that you didn’t pick) go out trick-or-treating, only to have your sibling kidnapped by strange monsters. You effectively spend the rest of the game in an attempt to rescue said sibling. There are three major locations to explore, including your initial suburb, a mall and … another suburb with a fair. Simple, straightforward, and not a whole lot more to say than that.

Gameplay:
As previously stated, Costume Quest is largely a turn-based RPG. Unlike many other turn-based RPGs such as Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, battles are not random encounters. Instead, they are generally triggered by either knocking on doors (“trick or treating”) or walking into a wandering enemy. A large majority of the enemies that you face in the game are compulsory, as you are required to “trick or treat” every house in each area in order to move to the next area.

The “class system” in the game is determined by the costume that each character is wearing. Each costume has a normal attack (which to my knowledge is the same regardless of which costume you use) and a special attack, which you can use every 3 turns, which each have their own unique abilities. This usually consists of extra damage, healing, armour or some negative effect on the enemy (such as stun). You initially begin with one character with the Robot suit. As you progress through the game, you unlock more characters (maximum of 3) and costumes (of which there are many). Unfortunately, despite the large number of costumes, many of the characters play very similarly and largely fall into 3 major classes – a fighter that deals damage, a healer and a character that provides buffs. This is exacerbated by the fact that, apart from one single boss fight (in which you are constantly reminded to use a particular sort of character), you can more or less run through the entire game without changing your costumes at all.

The battles themselves play out similarly to most turn-based RPGs, with the notable addition of timing-based button prompts, which will be familiar to people that have played Paper Mario or The Mario and Luigi RPG series on handheld Nintendo systems. The prompts for each attack depend on the costume that each character is using, and successfully completing these will lead to additional damage (when on offence) or reduced damage (on defence). These prompts include things such as pressing a button immediately, pressing it at a certain time, twirling your left stick around or mashing a button repeatedly. Although these do add some depth to the battle system, in the sense that you can’t entirely fall asleep at the wheel and just mash A repeatedly, it still remains far too shallow and far too easy. I am practically an old man when it comes to gaming, and even with my old-man reflexes, I managed to hit approximately 99% of the prompts without any trouble.

Winning the battles awards you with which is used to level up (which increases HP and strength) and candy, which is the currency in the game used to purchase stamps, which can be equipped to your characters to give bonuses, such as increased damage/defence, splash damage and so on. Once you’ve reached the level cap and/or have purchased all of the stamps (both of which I did prior to finishing the game), there’s no longer any purpose to the battles, making the already cumbersome and tedious battles just that much worse.

The rest of the game is padded with tedious fetch-quests, hidden-object finding and an awfully unoriginal and unimaginative mini-game. Worst of all, you are required to do these same activities each time you move to a new area. Most (but not all) of the costumes that you unlock have a secondary ability that can be used outside of the battle. The Robot suit, for example, has rollerblades which allow you to travel faster (which is generally why you’ll spend most of your time in this suit) and travel up ramps, leading you to so-called “hidden areas”. The other costumes have abilities that are, for the most part, used once in a particular part of the game (most of which is right after you obtain the costume) and then never necessary again. As a result, most of these abilities seem really tacked-on, which is a real shame as I feel like they could have done so much more with it.

Presentation:
First things first – I loved the cartoony art style used for this game. I really have no complaints about the graphics. The characters are cute and the setting is undeniably Halloween. Remember - nothing screams Halloween more than Jack-O-Lanterns and candy, and be warned – there are Jack-O-Lanterns and candy everywhere in this game. The sound and music are, for lack of a better word, appropriately Halloweeney. One thing that they absolutely nailed is the animations used for the battle transitions, in which the cardboard boxes and cheap trousers used to create the children’s costumes are transformed into visually-impressive life-like versions. This will hit all the right spots for anyone that’s worn an awful costume in their younger years and imagined looking so much cooler. With that said, having these animations play out every single time you enter a battle wears out very quickly, which is exacerbated by the fact that there’s no way to skip them.

Another major gripe that I had was the complete lack of a map/mini-map. This, coupled with the fact that most of the sub-areas in the game look more or less identical, resulted in me walking around in circles looking for the last house to trick-or-treat, or the last hidden child.

By far the biggest hook for this game is the classic Tim Schafer-esque humour and dialogue that we’ve come to expect from Double-Fine. Whilst not every line will necessarily make you laugh out loud, it’s hard not to at least smirk. At the very least, you’ll appreciate the effort that Double Fine has gone through to give each and every character a unique line of dialogue. It should be noted that the game lacks any voice acting, instead opting to go with on-screen text. On one hand, it’s a shame, given how awesome the voice acting has been in some of DF’s earlier (i.e. Psychonauts) or later (i.e. Broken Age) has been. On the other hand, bad voice acting could have destroyed the delivery of the quirky, humorous one-liners.

Overall verdict:
Overall, the game was largely disappointing. It’s a shame, really, because the quirky presentation and humour really highlighted everything I love about Tim Schafer’s games – it was more everything else that let the game down, most notably the repetitive and shallow gameplay. I can honestly say that during the 8 or so hours that I spent finishing the game (including the DLC), I can’t think of many moments that I actually enjoyed myself. Therefore, with a heavy heart, I can’t recommend this game to anyone.

Costume Quest is a fun little RPG from the folks at Double Fine. You play as one of two suburbanite siblings (brother or sister) on a quest to save the other from monsters on Halloween, but the only way to do that is by trick or treating, getting candy, and crafting more costumes, naturally. From start to finish, this game does a great job in recreating the wonder and excitement of Halloween that we all remember from when we were little. You're not in costume as a robot, you ARE a robot. Each costume transforms the character into what the costume represents when you enter combat, a brilliant idea that makes you feel like your imagination is making it happen, as it did as kids. Each costume gives you different stats, 1 special move in combat, and some also have special abilites on the world map that you need to use to progress in a puzzle like way, though I am disappointed that the different costumes look the same regardless of which party member is wearing them.

This game oozes personality with its fantastic writing and entertaining characters. It creates a fun world that is both whimsical and believable and for that, Double Fine deserves a lot of credit. The game consists or 3 zones (for the normal game and 1 additional zone for the expansion Grubbins on Ice) that are each varied, noticeably distinct and very well realized. You start in the most familiar of places and gradually move to the more fantastic. The further you progress gives a feeling of going deeper down the rabbit hole. It's an adventure that, once finished, leaves you glad you made the journey.

This game is not perfect though. As with most turn based RPGs, the combat can get repetitive, and the system is rather shallow. There are only 3 choices in combat, basic attack, special move, and stamp attack. The special move is only available every 3rd turn and the stamp attack only exists if you have an ability stamp equipped so most of the time you will be using basic attack and each costume only has one animation for each battle option. Though combat incorporating timed button presses to strike harder or deflect some of an attack aids in keeping the player focused. Those same presses lead to another complaint: the default keyboard mapping is a bit strange and even movement felt a bit clunky on the keyboard; once I switched to an XBox 360 controller, the controls felt great and much more natural.

Another minor complaint is that sometimes the text goes by too fast (automatically) and you may miss a line here or there, which can be disappointing as the writing is a big part of what makes the game so enjoyable, but that's just a nitpick.

Also I wish the game were a bit longer, I managed to 100% complete the game in around 7 and a half hours. I wouldn't say the length is a con, more that I enjoyed playing and hated for it to end.

Overall: A great game with a great story, writing and atmosphere. It manages to accomplish exactly what it sets out to do. Could some things have been a bit better? Sure, but that can be said about most games out there. I'd give it 8.5/10

A great game in all aspects. It is a relaxing change of pace in the gaming world littered with FPS's. Don't let that fool you though ! This is a game which will involve you for the short 6-7 hours it lasts and the boss battles though easier than average will require rudimentary strategy. In all an enjoyable game with leaves you smiling ! I mean, with Glowing Unicorns, Ghost Pirates and even Ninjithsu Scarecrows, there is little chance of going wrong :)

What's to Like ?

1. Good story, involving for both young and old.
2. Great variety of content for a short game, lots of items and quests.
3. Relaxing style of open world gameplay, with exciting battles.
4. Achievement Hunters will get 100 % easily.
5. Addon "Grubbins on Ice" DLC included by default ( Around 1/3 the length of the original game)
6. Great cartoonish graphics remniscent of old games such as XIII.
7. EXCELLENT PORT RUNS SUPERBLY WITHOUT GLITCHES.

What's not that exciting ?

1. A little more length of the game would have been nice.
2. While the number of quests are nice , it would have been nice to have achievments for some more of them too.
3. Although I think that a lack of map is no way detrimental for this particular game, some gamers might think otherwise.

What's to hate ?

Nothing :) No major flaws.


Costume Quest will bring out old memories in you, even if you live in a region where Halloween is not that big of a festival/event. All those childhood fantasies of wearing a make-do costume and pretending to be a bigger robot/ninja/whatever-you-liked is what forms the premise of this game. Evil monsters are here with a sinister plan to rob the world of all its candy!! Your sister, who dressed up as a candy for halloween is abducted by them too. Hence starts your quest to rescue her. You get many costumes along the way, which turn into their big sized fantasy counterparts when you are in battle mode. Some of the fun ones include a burning fire attack Scarecrow, a Pirate that can summon ghost ships and even a glowing Unicorn to heal! You also meet friends along the way to help you in the quests, eventually increasing to a party of 3.

Though this game is short, but it does not feel so as it has adequate amount of quests and in game story to keep you attracted for a lazy weekend of playing. There is the main story to follow, the addon DLC, trading cards (in game not steam) to be collected and even battle stamps to be bought with all that cany you collect ! Last but not the least. it rewards you as well with not that difficult to get achievements.

The game is open world, with a linear flow, yet is not pushy at all. Humour is present and its of the pleasant kind, not the very obvious or cheesy just-for-kids type. So full marks there too. Battle system is turn based with a system of quick key presses to get the most optimum attack once u have selected your options. Battles are easy for the most part. Later bosses require a little strategy, which while keeping you sufficently involved in the story, are easy enough not to deter the calm flow of the game.

In all, a recommended buy. Do not hesitate if you get it on sale.

Every year around Halloween I have to pull this game out and play a little. It has a wonderful sense of atmosphere that really does define Halloween for a young child. The world is a bright, colorful, slighty scary place full of surprises. In the game you have to explore the area for candy, solve a few puzzles, and battle a few monsters. There is some rpg aspects in fact that you level the party, you can buy power-ups with candy, and the choice of costumes. The idea of combat is great as your costumes come to life, each wih a special ability. In reality, the battles tend to be a bit repetitive and button mashfasts. Still, I always look forward to each new costume to see its animations in battle.
Overall, I highly recommend this game just on charm alone. Its got great artwork and the game mechanisms work for the most part. I even like the soundtrack with its spooky sounds interpersed with children's laughter. The humor is great too, you can view this game as a satire on American culture.

Costume Quest is a cute game where you are the brother or sister (Depending on whom you picked) and during trick or treating your sibling gets taken by a troll monster thinggy. So, in all great games you must go rescue them! It isn't easy but not hard, I was running about for about 20 minutes a little lost ;D But other wise epiccc graphics! It also had a pokemonish styled battle thing which I actually dislike. It's a fun game where you can just go trick or treating, you ever get sweets or you have to battle! :Poverall, a very cute and detailed game. I would buy it for the halloween season / if its on sale!
