    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 getI got the trial of this game.

    A very addicting game that is hard to put down. There's a great blend of excellent writing, unique characters you encounter, and enjoyable gameplay to be had.

Exploration and puzzles round out the game as you work to unlock more costumes, for said epic turn based battles, as you progress to save your sibling. Like Super Meatboy this game is incredibly hard to put down once you start. Easily one of this years best games period. Collapse

    Costume Quest is a fun game that will make a lot of people happy with its simplistic style and its witty conversations. The only downside of this game is the lack of variety.

    Despite all the the good premises, this last game from Tim Schafer proves to be a small project with short and repetitive gameplay.

    From the first moment that Custom Quest takes us to a world that we love meeting.
