About This Game

A Psychic Odyssey Through the Minds of Misfits, Monsters, and Madmen.

This classic action/adventure platformer from acclaimed developers Double Fine Productions follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin. In his quest to join the Psychonauts--an elite group of international psychic secret agents--he breaks into their secret training facility: Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp. But this is no average psychic summer camp! A mysterious villain has kidnapped Raz’s fellow campers and stolen their brains. Now he must use his psychic powers of Telekinesis, Levitation, and most of all his ability to project himself into the minds of others--to find the loose noodles and keep them from falling into the wrong hands. Fight mental demons! Uncover hidden memories! Sort emotional baggage! Explore the fantastic realm of the inner mind! Join the Psychonauts!

This game held a very special place in my heart since it originally came out. Playing Psychonauts again after all these years brought back every memory of where all the secrets were located and how to get it. <3 <3

Good graphics and art style, Level design etc.. Platforming sucks, good puzzels though, weird camera angels, in game techniques such as double jump works sometimes and sometimes it just won't. Very frustrating more than fun at times

This is easily one of my favourite games of all time. Not only is it funny and quirky, the plot is fantastic, the ideas are brilliant and it's one of those games that is never frustrating, it's always a pleasure to play and very rewarding. I would happily pay £20 for this game, it's definitely worth getting

If you think the graphics suck, then:
1) You're wrong.
2) Buy the game.
3) Obsess over the characters and plot.
4) Buy all the merch.
5) Cry until Psychonauts 2 comes out.

I'm not normally a fan of platformers; I get frustrated far too easily.

Psychonauts, though, is different.

It's easy enough to be entertaining, well-written (silly dialogue and nods to pop-culture abound), and the voice-acting is amusing and well-performed.

On some video cards, the background and some scenery may flicker, but it's not bad enough to affect play.

A decent 3D platformer for children aged 1 to 92.

Psychonaut's strength is its charm - you play as Raz, a psychocadet, training to be a psychonaut. Psychonauts travel through others minds - an inception-like endeavor - often helping the individual reach some closure. Adults will appreciate the intricacies - you collect mind fragments, clear mind webs, and open emotional baggage. Every mind/level is unique, a reflection of the individual's personality with each introducing interesting mechanics.

Honestly, I feel like Psychonauts is an interesting piece which tries to illustrate the uniqueness of the mind. It tries to get us to take another's perspectives - to, like Raz, explore their mind.

Firts let me say that I never played this game back in 2005, I only heard of it back in 2006 when I bought the game JAWS Unleashed because the game had a promotional video on the extras section, I regret not playing this master piece a of game back then because it is one of those games that leaves you a hearthwarming feeling when you complete it, let it be the story or the world design (thinking about Mario sunshine or Starfox Adventures), anyway I really liked the game and it deserves all the recognition it did not have back in the early 2000's.

10/10

Easily the best platformer I've played, the writing reminded me of the old LucasArts games.

Bias: I am a dino. I like to dream I have super psychic powers.

Review long time coming. One of the first games I got on steam. If you have not played this game. You should
Quirky, funny, and involves a lot of brain stealing shenanigans. Totally worth playing this. To be honest, I have enjoyed all the Double Fine titles I have played - This one led to me playing Brutal Legend and Costume Quest.

Your quest is to allow the power of your untapped mind to save the kids of Whispering Rock from having their minds stolen and used by the mad man.

This is a fun puzzle platformer with a lot of imagination and creativity. A lot of interesting backgrounds and imagery to suck you into the world of psychic powers. It was an enjoyable experience solving puzzles and fight bosses throughout the game

I do hope a sequel is released. It would definitely go to the top of my to play list.

10/10 from me. Though the game is from 2005, it is still enjoyable and quite playable. With strong story, good puzzles, and fun boss fights.
