Costume quest is finally back. It surprised me, i was not expecting Costume quest 2. I loved the first game and i instantly fell in love with this one. Again you play as the very cute little kids (i know it sounds creepy coming from a grown man) and running in halloween costumes fighting giant angry moles and snails.

The game didn‘t change much. The core is the same. Simple rpg mechanics, collecting candies, leveling up, collecting new costumes to become a three-headed hotdog.

The combat system changed a little, you now need to press a button when attacking to do more damage and same goes for defending – press the button in time to receive less damage. And there‘s fountains where you can restore your health after the fights. I heard people complaining about it, but i don‘t see the problem here, fountains are always close to you, it‘s easy to go and refill you hp. Other than that the game is same as the previous one – great. Yes it‘s very short, but i don‘t know if i would want to play it for 30 hours.

Double fine has done a fine job here. Costume quest 3 next halloween maybe?

The sequeal to the 1st game, Costume Quest 2 is exactly what its suppose to be. Cute, fun and now a bit more challenging. I played the game twice because I realize there was an achievement to finish through the whole game with one of your party members wearing the candycorn costume, which is a bit more challenging.

The story takes place immediately after the first game (not gonna go any further discussion about the story because I dun want to give spoilers), though I have to say they could have a little bit more depth to the story. The whole game is almost the same to the first one, but with a number of additional gimmicks and changes:

1) All the characters now have the same button prompt unlike the previous game where they all have a variety of it;
2) You can now attack again after a successful attack, and also there are levels of damage depending on your timing;
3) You can now defend and counter;
4) Once you flee, you will teleport auto-matically to a healing-well-thingy, which follow up to my next point...
5) You can now heal and save at a healing-well-drinking-thingy, not a ignorant police phone booth;
6) You will have a lot of cards to use in battle to act as an battle-equalizer, because the fights are a lot harder than the first game
7) You can now move faster in any costume, unlike the first game which is the ability for the robot costume;
8) Costumes and enemies now have effectiveness typing, kinda like rock scissors paper. They are Monster, Magic and Mech types.

Thats all the things I can think of for now.

The game is now more challenging, which is good. The characters are still adorable and lovable, and the attack prompts in battle feels more respondsive. The main menu though, I wish they would just stick to the simple looking menu rather than what it is now, but oh well. Overall not bad for a sequal.

The Problem with sequels is that you compare it to the first game. To me Costume Quest 2 on its own is a decent and good game but in case you played the first one, you might have mixed feelings.

I played both games. My opinion: I don't understand why they changed the battle-system. You don't have the different attack meters anymore, the cards you get need to be activated during the battle and do not give passive bonuses, you should heal after every fight (either with a ability or the fountain which caused me to run back to the fountain all the time).
Those are my points i didn't like. On The other hand though: The story is still good and funny at times and the little quests too. Plus, you can constantly skate now. Thank god.
I say it again, this game on its own is good but don't expect much after playing the first one.

An extremely dull sequel. This is the worst kind of boring tripe, it improves on nothing and adds next to nothing (apart from an almost useless map). It feels just like an expansion pack for the first game. This is a pure "phone it in" sequel. The combat is almost identical but they managed to make it worse since you have to now pick a sticker rather than have them on your characters. The enemies are blander than the first game and your own attacks are duller. One character even refuses to fight. It also shamelessly repeats the gameplay from the first game, hint to Double Fine, finding six kids that are NOT hidden at all is not fun.

All too quickly I became bored and avoided combat. This is terrible sequel that is mired in its own blandness.

I bought it in the sale and still feel ripped off. Buy the first game instead (this game assumes you've played that one anyway).
