    Costume Quest 2's combat and story are both surprisingly good for an RPG that concludes in roughly a half-dozen hours.

    It's lovely, it's sweet, it's funny, but it's only a few hours long, even if you're taking your time. [Xmas 2014, p.86]

    Costume Quest 2 on consoles is not a bad game by any means, but it failed to keep me interested during most of its short duration.

    It's a fun game, but with realistically only six hours of playing time on hand, it may leave you wanting.

    A decent distraction for a short time, Costume Quest 2 unfortunately soon becomes a chore. Fortunately, it doesn't outstay its welcome by too much. [Issue#119, p.82]

It's brief length and drawnIt's a nice little turned-based RPG with some humorous writing and a great theme. It's far from perfect though. It's brief length and drawn out combat encounters do put a damper on things. Especially at the price of $14.99.

    It's the type of game that can be breezed through in an afternoon. Side-content does a little to extend that length, but you're only looking at the addition of a few more hours. It definitely doesn't offer a lot of bang for your buck. Despite that though what is here is no less charming.

    The game has a great sense of humor. The candy corn jokes alone will have you rolling. Mix in the cute graphical style, excellent use of the Halloween setting, and family-friendly nature and you've got a very likable game presentation wise.

    The gameplay manages to stand out due to the clever use of costumes. Each of has their own abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Finding and testing out new ones is a blast. There's a nice exploration element to the game as you hunt down the materials required to make new costumes. To make things better their usefulness extends outside of combat as well. Some have abilities that open up new areas of the environments to explore. Making it possible to progress in the game as well as pick up new goodies.

    The combat side of things though is kind of weak. The battles tend to drag on due to the enemies large health bars. The fact that the game never offers any sort of challenge amplifies this fact. Going through the motions to chip away at the enemies allows monotony to set in rather quickly. About the umpteenth fight you get into you begin to get more and more thankful that the game isn't that long.

    Drawn out combat and limited content aside, Costume Quest 2 is a good game. There are plenty of worse Halloween-themed alternatives out there. This is one that is perfectly suitable for kids as well.

    Really adorable game that I wanted to love and was initially ready to buy (got to try it free with Game Pass) but I'm glad I didn't. AfterReally adorable game that I wanted to love and was initially ready to buy (got to try it free with Game Pass) but I'm glad I didn't. After playing just a little while longer, I got so bored with the repetitive battles....I literally started to dread them. And this was only about a half hour into the game! And enough with the candy corn jokes already. I get it, he's not or can't fight, but do I have to read a quip after every round? I just wanted to get the battle over with and explore town again. I like simple fun games but the boring battles just ruined it for me. Bummer. Expand

Alors, petit Kévin et ses amis Kévinou et Kévinette se font un devoir de revenir dans le temps pour le remettre droit, ramasser les bombecs et contrecarrer le méchant dentiste ricanant.

    Pour ce faire, ils ont leurs supers costumes plein de supers pouvoirs, des combats au tour par tour à la Final fientasy saupoudrés de QTE et des graphismes en 32 couleurs trop "mignons".

    Même pour les mômes, je ne recommande pas cette cabale anti-dentiste et pro-bonbons, car nos chères têtes blondes devraient savoir que d'une, bouffer ces merdes et de deux, se déguiser comme des golmons lors d'une fête de débiles ne leur profiteront en rien et qu'ils feront mieux d'aller se brosser les dents.

    Voilà donc une niaiserie nauséabonde, stupide, maladroite, une misérable connerie indé qui ne devrait prendre qu'une direction : celle de la poubelle.
