i love this game every year around Halloween i look for games to play and this is a perfect game to play around the Halloween season but i don't see myself playing this game after the Halloween season
the gameplay is basically the same as the first game but i prefer the story and settings of this game to the first one
this game is very easy to 100% and unlike the first game it doesn't have a trophy that requires you to play the game on a pertain date so if you like to 100% games and want an easy game to up the amount this would be it
I´ve played the predecessor on Xbox 360 and was amazed about the cute art style and the addictive gameplay. And Costume Quest 2 doesn´t make any experiments. On the one hand this is good, because the first part was really enjoyable, from gamplay to graphics. On the other hand, I expected at least some changes. Don´t get me wrong, this game is fun. But the whole experience seems a bit warmed up.
The main difference between the two Costume Quest games mostly lies in story and settings, and not much on gameplay that is very similar.
Since I really liked the first episode, I should have appreciated this one; because once I have found an engaging gameplay, I really like to play it again in sequels. But in a strange way, Costume Quest 2 had a complete opposite effect on me.
Maybe it's because of the long launch, the counter-intuitive main screen, the "knock on doors for candies or combat" part or the "too-fine / too hard" controls, I don't know. I felt the pleasurable experience from the first Costume Quest somewhat vanished.
Even if I do appreciate hard and punishing games that presents tough challenges, doesn't help you a bit, and reward your efforts with mastery; I wasn't expecting Costume Quest 2 too challenge me that much when I only wanted a laid-back, relaxed play time.
