    A disappointing sequel that only compounds the failures of the original, while also featuring Double Fine’s least amusing script so far.

    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.

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. Full Review »
