Psychonauts 2 Review

By Akhil Arora (Aug 23, 2021)
  • Good
  • Zany, goofy, and eclectic
  • Hand-drawn visual aesthetic
  • Embraces heavy ideas
  • Smartly presents concepts
  • Doesn't talk down to audience
  • Special gameplay settings for kids
  • NPC chatter is a bonus treat
  • Included with Xbox Game Pass
  • Bad
  • Narrative conflicts with gameplay loop
  • Platforming bits aren't innovative
  • Environmental bug

Psychonauts 2 is ready — and it's here. Tell that to someone from the late ‘00s and they likely wouldn't believe you. The original Psychonauts, released in 2005 on the original Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC, had a tortured development process. Though it had Grim Fandango and Full Throttle director Tim Schafer at the helm, it was the first game for his new studio Double Fine. That resulted in all sorts of problems, resulting in Microsoft pulling an exclusivity deal midway through production. Double Fine found a new partner and Psychonauts released to critical acclaim, but it found few buyers, forcing its new publisher to exit the video game industry altogether. No wonder then that Schafer struggled to get Psychonauts 2 off the ground — and that it's had its own share of setbacks.
