It had been a while since I played the original PS2 Psychonauts and beat it, possibly a couple years at most. Since I beat it I always had that elusive Rank 101 in mind, having only gotten somewhere around 70-90. Now that I rebought the game I spent a good three consecutive days hunting everything down and getting the ***** to display my name and call me a psychomaster. It got a little frustrating from time to time when I couldn't find the last collectable in a few worlds as they hid in plain sight, but overall... I liked the game. I kinda wished that some of the characters were a little more fleshed out, but for what it is I enjoy it. If you do play this game, don't just rush through it (Unless your goal is to go fast). Instead, take your time and explore the world a few times, you might witness things you didn't expect. Getting all the achievements on Steam really showed me how much of this game I didn't see before. So many new things to do and learn about that my mind was boggled by the sheer amount of stuff.

Aim for the highest rank possible, but if you get stuck wondering how to do that *ONE* thing, or where the last collectable is... It isn't necessarily the best idea to get yourself worked up trying to figure it out.
Okay, spoilers.

SPOILERS TO SOME DEGREE:


In the end, it ends up being a bit disappointing that there really isn't any... bonus, for Rank 101. You do get something for rank 100, but not 101. Well, you get the achievement but that's it. Not really worth it in my opinion, but I guess it's the journey that counts.

An early 2000's era collectathon platformer that is mainly known for its cast of wacky characters.

Level design is okay, but not great. The camera is also a little goofy at some times.

What is even weirder is that I can get it to run ona 6 year old MacBook, but not a brand new gaming rig. Steam's doing something out of my control.

Psychonauts is a masterpiece of gaming, full of originality, humour, secrets, and little touches that show the developers put lots of care into this game. I could go on for days about all the little things that demonstrate how they really tried to this great.

But suffice it to say Psychonauts is one of my all-time favourite games, and you need to play it right now. If games are art, then Psychonauts is one of the prime examples of this.

I have grown weary of 3D Platformers.
Over the years, I simply got bored of them.
Have heard of Psychonauts before, but left it aside, assuming it was the same as the rest.

Eyeballing it in my Games List, I decided to give it a shot.

2 weeks later, I'm here, writing this review.

Psychonauts essentially changes everything that a 3D Platform should be, then adds in several cups of the Schafer Salt for good measure.

The game is easier to play now, thanks to the recently added (rudimentory, but sufficient) Xbox 360 controller support.

But is it worth the asking price of US$10?
Very Much yes. Even more so if its below the base price.

I only disliked one level of the game, the very last level (from what I've read, I am not alone), yet the rest of the game I absolutely loved.
The game does not end story-wise and so it is dependant on the sequel, which as of writing this it has not been release yet.

In the Double Fine Catalog, Psychonauts is in the short list of favourite games from the Developer.

On a console, this game was awesome.

However, here in 2016, using Manjaro, I am experiencing the same god damn bug that I saw back in 2013 on Ubuntu - the ♥♥♥♥ing camera just spins to the right, forever. I can counteract it, and all other controls work fine, but the camera spins to the right forever unless I'm forcing it the other way. This makes the game unplayable. This is also unaccpetable. I'd like a refund, but I've had the game for nearly 4 years. The same exact game breaking bug, a bug that breaks the game so hard you literally cannot play it, 3 ♥♥♥♥ing years later. ♥♥♥♥ this company, I'll not buy any more of their ♥♥♥♥.

Even though this game is old i'd recomend anyone who hasn't tried to it pick it up. This game is a great 3d platformer with a very unique premise and all the powerups are great fun to use. The graphics hold up even today pick it up asap if you havent already.

to compare this with the PS2 version....the steam version is probably better....sure there are some bugs with the enviorment that dissapears and reapears but that must be because im using a computer that is meh with games at the moment

its alot faster and more fluid

and even though its better with a controler (probably a playstation controler because i know how to use it) the mouse and keyboard is pretty tight

this game with woth the money and i'll be honest i hope the 2nd game will be as awsome as this 1st installment

Mean Mr. Mustard's short Psychonauts review

1) Essential - buy it NOW
2) Recommended - buy it on sale
3) Avoid

Time to complete – 11 hours
Played multiplayer? N/A
Worth revisiting? No, I guess this game isn't for me, I have no idea why some people hold it in such high regard

Best part – Some creative level styles and a witty script, which may produce the odd chuckle
Worst part – The look and feel of the game hasn't aged well at all, it looks like a 10 year old game and controls like a 15 year old one..

A amazing story for not only a platformer in a game with tons of great humour sadly ruined by low amount of good/entertaining level design (Lungfishopolis/Milkman Conspiracy were the only good ones). Horrible tedious platforming sections and odd bugs/camera misplacement also occur quite often sadly. This game had every tool to be a masterpiece but unfortunately missed the mark on too many points except for its humour and story. The extremely fast paced levelling up in the game also feels unsatisfying unlike other collectathons since everything is just placed too much around for the sake of it and especially the "brain" collecting felt forced. I personally didnt feel like collecting any other stuff when i arrived at the point of no return in the game. The Waterloo level had a great font and design and could have been one if not the best level in the game is simply ruined by tons of these flaws on top of a dumb design choice that forces tyou to leave the level twice to get some kind of letter/coin.
This game imo is ultimately a hugely missed opportunity though but is still worth giving a go, but the feeling of finishing it is very conflicting, it has a good story and premise hampered down by being a sub par platformer nowhere near the golden era of RAREs days or Nintendo. I would just rate it above the 3D Rayman/Spyro/Crash games at best.

7.5/10

Favorite childhood game. i played it multiple times, once a year, lmao i love this game so much i've made a presentation about tim schafer and double fine in an english assignment. i cant say anything bad about this game to be honest. Psychonauts 2 going out in 2018 and my hype is still high everyday.
About the game:
Loveable art and dialouge that has actual humor,
special art design that distinguishes diffrent levels and gives a lot of special atmospheres.
story is rated for everybody.

Great story, great gameplay, great voice acting, and a beautifully constructed world. Psychonauts manages to pull you in with nostalgia and quirky characters but keeps you going with a fun experience. Just don't lose your mind collecting some of those figments. I must have spent 6 hours tracking down a handful of hiding figments. This is one of the few games that I not only bothered to complete 100% but legitimatey wanted to, figment chasing screams and sobs aside.

An OK platformer but a great experience overall. If you're a fan of point and click games or Tim Schafer games you should play this, since it practically plays like a point and click game with platforming controls.

This game....its just a classic. I had to finish it twice and get most achivements before i wrote this. The game is fantastic its a true gem. It has a wierd and witty story about "psychic" students in a school...well more like camp. Its an action, platfromer and definitely an adventure game with great amazing graphics for its time, as well as having a slight Tim Burton look.

The gameplay is also perfect and no problems with the ui as well as abilities and wepons. I enjoyed the game very much with a keybord and mouse and its very obvious it was made for a ps2 so a controler is welcome too. Now with it coming to PS4 this game should be played by anone wanting a game to laugh about, with its witty comedy and fun characters this game shouldnt be missed.

Loved this game till then end and litterally played nothing else till i finished it. A well deserved 10/10!!

Yksi kaikkien aikojen tasoloikista.
Pelissä asetut Razputin nimisen yliluonnollisia kykyjä omaavan pojan kenkiin, joka karkaa sirkuksesta päästkäseen "psychonauttien"-kesäleirille. Leirillä alkaa kuitenkin taphtua kummia ja Razputin päätyy selvittämään mistä on kyse.
Psychonautit ovat eräänlaisia vakoojia jotka selvittävät rikoksia, ja pulmia tunkeutumalla ihmisten mieliin.
Pelin perus selkäranka rakentuukin pitkälti eri hahmojen mielissä seikkalun varaan.
Pelin aikana tunkeutumalla eri hahmojen aivoihin päästään mitä kummallisempiin, ja nerokkaampiin maailmoihin joissa seikkailemalla voit esimerkiksi kerätä itsellesi valuuttaa uusia kykyjä varten, taikka selvittää hänen menneisyyttään.
Vaikka pelillä onkin melko lapsekas ulkoasu se osaa olla viaheittain hyvinkin synkkä, ja pelin huumorikin on melko tumma sävytteistä.



Lyhyesti Psychonauts on ainutlaatuinen tasohyppely, hyvin mielenkiintoisilla pelimekaanikoilla höystettynä. Aina pitää myös ylistää pelin yleistä ulkoasua, joka pääsee kunnolla valloilleen hahmojen mielten syövereihin uppoutumalla. Peli näyttääkin muuten vielläkin melko hyvältä, tosin esirendatut välivideot ovat melkoista suttua.

Honestly, the best game of its kind.

It has some of the wittiest and most amusing story lines ,dark and mature mixed with tragedy that will take you by surprise.
Beautiful visual design, great mix of colors and nicely put together levels that will remind you of Tim Burton's films.
Voice acting & dialogues are excellent as you would come to expect with Tim Schafer produced games.
Fun combat & platforming mechanics, they serve their purpose but are nothing ground breaking and some of the segments can overstay their welcome slightly.
One part i found was annoying was that you have to grind for money to purchase an item to progress further, which interrupts the pacing somewhat.

All in all a great title which is sadly overlooked by people. Highly recommend to any one who likes FUN.

Psychonauts hails from a golden age of gaming where developers poured passion into their creations and weren't completely drunk with greed. Great story, crafty gameplay and plenty of achievements and collectables. One of the most creative and original games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. Highly entertaining, highly recommended. Play this game.

REVIEW
Psychonauts is a quirky and imaginative action-adventure game that is an absolute riot. It is an aging specimen, but it will forever hold a status as a highly enjoyable “cult classic.” If it has piqued your interest, then I suggest you take a complimentary cup of Kool-Aid and join the cult… you won’t regret it.

Psychonauts excels at many things. The story, the characters, and the writing are all top-notch and well-executed. The scenes and developments throughout the campaign are quite amusing and should keep you thoroughly entertained. The many different characters are all interesting in their own way. They are all splendidly eccentric and unique, if not also reminiscent of typical Saturday-morning-cartoon archetypes. And, importantly, the voice acting is mostly decent and sufficiently holds everything else together… although it does falter slightly, on occasion.

Providing setting for the narrative is a very inspired and diverse gameworld that is quite atmospheric. The graphics used are undeniably dated and are only increasingly falling farther behind the curve; however the developers did an outstanding job of matching the environments and atmosphere to the overall soul of the game. There is a mixture of lighthearted, noir, cartoonish, and psychedelic ambiances which really diversifies the experience as you play through the campaign. You may not be awed by the scenery like in modern games, but you can still easily appreciate the effort that was put into the creation of the gameworld.

Of course, the intriguing narrative and captivating atmosphere would be for naught if the gameplay wasn’t enjoyable. Luckily, Psychonauts is quite fun to play. There is a pleasant mixture of combat situations and puzzle-solving that you would expect from a game like this. Situations can be approached by experimentation with various abilities and skills, which you unlock as you progress through the campaign. Also, the various levels will introduce different dynamics to keep you on your toes. There are also a ton of collectibles and many achievements to keep you busy, if you are into that kind of thing.

Psychonauts can easily appeal to a wide and diverse audience. The tone is fairly childish, but has many adult themes. It is also a pretty easy/casual experience, so there shouldn’t be any skill issues. It takes approximately 14 to 22 hours to complete, depending on if you strive for achievements or not. If you like 3D action-adventure platformers, I would say this is a pretty safe bet for you. It is also a good bet for anyone who may be interested in “seeing what the fuss is about,” as you will probably find it enjoyable once given a try.

(I could have sworn that I had already wrote a review of this, but oh well)

Psychonauts, one of the last great 3d platformers. Straight from the mind of Tim Schafer. 9/10

+A distinctive, and interesting visual style
+A fleshed out, imaginative world
+Some of the funniest diologue this side of... well... Grim Fandango
+Odd, interesting characters
+An awesome soundtrack
+Clever, and unconventional level design (I feel like pointing out The Milkman Conspiracy, Lungfishopoplis, and the Velvet stage)
+Psychic bears

-The texture work is very dated
-I should not have to look in the key bindings to figure out how to do a certain command when there is a forty-five minute long tutorial!
-You guys did not buy this game, and therefore there will never be a sequel (or a remake)

Psychonauts is this type of game, that was made with love and passion firstly and business strategy lastly in mind.

On the positive side:
  • Art vision and design level are top notch. Every world in game feels, looks and plays very differently;
  • Original premise for story and whole plotline is very engaging;
  • Clever and funny writing;
  • New powers (12 in total, which is more than enough) unlocked through the game make gameplay fresh till the end;

On the negative side:
  • Some collectibles are very hard to see, so collecting them could be frustrating experience;
  • Sometimes camera decides you are having too much fun and it is time to make your life worse;
  • Cutscenes pre-rendered in a low resolution (800x600 i think). Because of that they look very bad;

tl;dr: you should play it if you like platformers/adventure, good original story, creative art and want something unique to experience.

Personally this is my favorite Double Fine game. Although it is about nine years old it still holds up as a good game with an interesting art style. Unlike most games built as an atempt at photorealism, the extremely cartoonish graphics and garish colour palette still looks good almost a decade after release. As all games from Tim Schafer the writing is magnificent, the voice acting is well done and the characters always have something important or hilarious to say. The setting of a Summer camp for Psychics not only influences the plot and gameplay but the dialogues actually sound like something children at summer camp would be saying, except that they are about the outlandish topics involved with a world surrounded by psychic weirdness. The gameplay is devided up into two sections, the overworld with some, but not much combat, sidequests, the one shop in the game, and most of the colorful non-essential dialogue, and the insides of the various character's minds. These minds serve as the various levels of the game, each with the same basic controlls but slightly different gameplay. The Meat Circus level is all about fast paced platforming, whilst Lungfishopolis is completely based on the combat system, and the Milkman level(BEST LEVEL EVER) is an old school inventory adventure puzzle mixed with a fever dream X-Files Plot. Throughout the game you gain psy powers that are used in combat and level navigation, some work as a long range attack with the need to collect ammo, and there is a bouncy ball/parachute power that makes platforming much more difficult and interesting.

Now that i have sufficiently gushed about all the things i freaking love about this game it is time to get realistic and talk about the flaws. Most of these flaws have to do with the fact that this was Double Fine's first attempt at an action game. the combat can be a bit annoying with enemy spamming getting overdone at times, that being said most of the basic enemies are too easy to dispatch and clearing the room becomes simply a chore without much actual difficulty. The controlls are somewhat soft and the platforming would be vastly improved by tighter controlls to allow for fine tuned navigation. and if you watch a let's play you can see that the dificulty scale starts off low but when it does ramp up it does so without telling you and later levels,(Milkman,Meat Circus) can become frustrating and take forever to get past, not allways from dificulty of combat or platforming but in the milkman level if you do not know what you are doing it can be almost impossible to figure some of the puzzles out organically.

All that being said these flaws are really not as bad as it sounds. the increased difficulty lends less to frustraton and more to angry inspiration to just beat this next level and prove that you are better than the game. and for the milkman, a quick glance at a gameFAQ can help if you get too badlt stuck, enough people have been frustrated by the level to have wonderfull walkthroughs made to relieve the tension. in the end the story and experience is so good it makes up for any akwardness in gameplay. 8/10, This game is a love it or hate it, and i love it, fantastic but not even close to perfect.

Psychonauts has to be one the greatest Adventure/Platformers of our time, it succeeds in achieving the best aspects of the genre. The controls are tight allowing for great platforming and visually still looks better than most games today. The Steam version of Psychonauts is brilliant, I have not experienced a single bug and it supports HD.

The exploration this game offers is top-notch, you get to explore a large camp littered with clever secrets and challenges along with some of the most insane levels. The combat is entertaining, especially since you get decent upgrades and new powers as you go along, allowing you to form more strategies so it never feels like a boring slogfest.

The art direction of Psychonauts is unlike any other game and is vibrant and unique, you have to wonder what the devs were on when making some of the characters and the sound/soundtrack do their job pretty well. The way this game progresses in terms of difficulty and design is persistent and can get fairly challenging later on in the game. The dialogue is extremely well done adding a lot of life to some of the strangest looking characters in video gaming. The game features a dark/twisted humour which adds to the hilarity of the situations you encounter.

This game gets much better the further you get, the levels get much more abstract and crazier, theres a few here which are total masterpieces and the plot is surprisingly deep for a game of this nature and extremely entertaining.

The amount of imagination put into this game is amazing, the art direction is it's own, the characters are brilliant, the level design is solid, the combat and platforming are tight, the atmosphere is effective, the humour is hilarious as hell and never feels like they tried hard to make it that way, so it doesn't feel forced like many other games that try achieve a comical effect and is loaded with charm, there really is nothing negative about this game.

To get this on Steam is a no brainer as it's an incredibly solid experience that should be experienced by anyone who appreciates Adventure and platforming games and timeless classics. Squirrels are liars.
