- Summary: Costume Quest is a rollicking Adventure/Role-Playing game that unfolds on Halloween night across seemingly peaceful suburban neighborhoods, a mysterious village carnival, and a monster-infested shopping mall. Created by Double Fine's lead animator, Tasha Harris, the game follows the adventure of a group of young friends who must rid their neighborhood of monsters using only their wits, their bravery, and their home-made costumes. Players go door-to-door collecting candy, points, cards, battle stamps and quest assignments as they prepare themselves for Combat Mode-where they transform into larger-than-life versions of their costumes. Each costume that comes-to-life provides its own unique set of superpowers that players will need to battle Halloweenâ€™s worst monsters.… Expand
10One word "charming"! This game is so cute its almost sick. What I really loved about this game is how it made me feel like a kid again. I mean come on who doesn't love costumes and trick or treating. Overall the game is incredibly well crafted for a $15 XBLA title. My wife and I played through it in one sitting. This isn't to say its too short. It took us about 6 hours total. Its just incredibly addictive, fun and...charming.… Expand
8The game has charm to spare, and to me, is best played in small doses. Still, I think the game is very well put together for a RPG-lite (emphasis on the lite) game. The characters are well animated, the dialogue is occasionally chuckle-worthy, and the battles, while simplistic, have just enough to keep me coming back for more. The game definitely won't be for everyone, particularly for gamers who want something a little deeper or gamers looking for the next great Tim Schafer epic. Still, it's a great entry for Schafer and co. into the world of downloadable games, and I can't wait to see what comes next!… Expand
I got the trial of this game. I played it and maybe finished 5 houses. I love the characters, art style, and everything outside of combat. But the combat is so repetitive and boring and the combat is a huge part of the game too. This is weird because i normally don't mind turn based combat but this game just doesn't seem to pull it off right. If you like it I envy you but i couldn't get into it. The only reason i'm giving it a 5 is because of everything outside of combat.… Expand
3I got this game for me and my son, who loves to play games with me, but cannot read just yet. I was truly disappointed, that there were no voices in the game, just text boxes. What was worse, the text was flashing too quickly, that I couldn't even finish reading them.
I found the simple controls to be ridiculously confusing, and the combat - well after the first combat, I gave up. Its a cute idea, that's poorly executed, and apparently made by someone who neither has kids, nor has been around any in a long time.… Expand
