There are games that also feature a very unique (visual) world and gameplay, but they don’t get enough attention, despite the many recommended tests and prizes. Developed by Double Fine, veteran Tim Shaffer (Full Throttle, Grim Fandango) and his team, Psychonauts, were like this 16 years ago, selling pretty low-end versions, even though they were really original pieces. Fortunately, a larger fan base formed around it later on, who yearned to continue, which Double Fine could eventually do because it was owned by Xbox Game Studios. Psychonauts 2 has just been out in the world after more than half a decade in the making, so let’s see how our fellow aliens have greeted it!

Castle also said that the traditional platformer gameplay has evolved a lot, with inventions versus cliches prevailing in a lot of areas, which means Schafer and his team were content, despite doing the sequel, with boldly unleashing their creative potential.
It’s Tom Marks American IGNWho was tougher, it was just 8/10He gave to Psychonauts 2. “Even with some problems, the Psychonauts give us everything we can expect from this sequel,” Marx wrote in his summary. It also believes that the story, the world, and the character composition are fantastic, and it is commendable that its developers have dared to innovate in the genre and gameplay of its great predecessor.
