Rasputin is a misunderstood kid who longs for adventure. He knows he has psychic abilities, but his father refuses to allow him to pursue them due to a gypsy curse put on his family. You begin your adventure at a camp, filled with interesting campers and bonuses to unlock. As you traverse the brains of camp counselors, you earn psychic merit badges (pyrokinesis, telekinesis, levitation ball, etc.). But your summer camp fun gets disrupted when you realize their is plot to steal everyone's brains. You must team up with a mentally unstable, retired psychonaut, Ford Crueller to save your fellow campers and potentially the world.
Each of the worlds is original and different
The psychic worlds really help you understand each character's emotional complexity.
10-15 hours of gameplay
A lot to collect, ranging in difficulty to find.
Leveling Up is useful - extra fire-power, regenerating health, etc. - but not necessary in the grand scheme of things
A couple levels take forever to beat if you don't know what to do. Especially the last level can be really irritating if you are trying to collect everything.
The bonus for reaching level 100 is a 30 second clip... it's a funny clip, but probably not worth trying to collecting every figment.
This game was written and designed by Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango, Monkey Island Trilogy, Brutal Legend, etc). If you enjoy original games and gameplay with over the top story and characters I would highly suggest this game.
I just wanted to let everyone know that this game can be activated on Steam with the code Amazon gives you in your Digital Library. (purchased 5.6.12 - Amazon deal of week $1.99)
As a bonus, if you use the Steam client, you can enter the game code from Amazon, and the game will be added to your Steam library.
In short, it's a brilliant, wonderful game that deserves five stars in it's own right. Unfortunately, the controls were clearly designed primarily for consoles. The result is a sometimes frustrating response to expected PC-based controls. Additionally, the game mechanics sometimes struggle a bit, most notably at the very end of the game, where either the difficulty takes a massive leap, or they simply didn't have the time to fine-tune the game as well as they did everything leading up to it.
I may have docked one star for the control related issues, but I still highly recommend this game. Buy it, enjoy it, and have a really good time.
If you want to play something that ANYONE could enjoy, then pick this up and work your way through it. It's clever, unique, and full of imaginative and hilarious things.
And this isn't "video game funny", it's ACTUALLY funny.
There's a reason this game still tops the critics list, so do yourself a favour: Buy the game, plug in a joypad, and enjoy the ride.
It's an older game, but it runs fine on modern systems. There's some quirks when it comes to controls and graphical configurations, but nothing that can't be fiddled with until it works. For being an older game, the graphics still hold up quite well. Though it owes a lot to its really well designed and realized art style. It still looks like a beautiful game well over a decade after release.
At it's core, this is a 3-d platform's with a really outstanding graphical and story aesthetic. You basically get to traverse through people's psyches. And the level design as a result is varied and almost always spectacular.
The platforming feels good, and the controls are great.There's one particular section of game that's weaker than the rest. But as a whole this game is just awesome all around.
It's goes for pretty cheap, considering its age. But it doesn't feel like an old game. And as a result, I can't help but recommend this heartily, especially for as cheap as it is. It's just a fun game, and a fun experience to boot.
