For many of us who were fortunate enough to celebrate the occasion, Halloween was a magical day in many peoples' childhoods. Dressing up in costumes, going from house to house collecting candy, then coming home and eating as much as possible until you could stand it no more...there was nothing even close to Halloween on any other day of the year. Costume Quest is a triumph because it succeeds in recapturing that feeling of wonder that Halloween brings. And on top of that, it's a very, very fun game that oozes charm, humor, and excitement.

Costume Quest is a RPG/adventure game that tells the story of a group of children who go to look for the missing sibling of one of the kids (you can choose to play the brother or the sister at the beginning of the game), who was kidnapped by monsters, on Halloween night. Perfectly mirroring a child's imagination, the children encounter monsters along the way (as well as some very helpful folks as well), with whom they do battle using the powers of their Halloween costumes. Many costumes are acquired along the way, each one with it's own unique fighting style and special ability. The children can also purchase power ups (candy serves as the currency in this game) hunt for collectibles, and can participate in various mini games and side quests along the way. The settings of the game mirror many faces of suburbia, such as neighborhood streets, backyards, playgrounds, and shopping malls, each given its own spooky Halloween-themed twist.

Costume Quest is a very accessible game. The turn-based battle sequences are never particularly difficult, and the game's campaign isn't particularly lengthy.

I picked this game up just because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and its a game about Halloween night.
After playing it for a couple hours, I was hooked. Great puzzles, great fighting sequences, and great story. Add to the fact that doublefine made it (psychonauts, another great game), and you got yourself a classic in the making.

This is really a great game for the younger audience. And even for the older folks who want a relaxing game to play. Gameplay was a little more than 8 hours for me and I couldn't be happier. The only drawback would be the repetitive gameplay but I think thats for the younger audience. Pick this game up and you won't be disappointed.

Costume Quest is a role-playing game created by Double Fine Productions and published by THQ. It was designed by Tasha Harris and has been available for a wide variety of platforms.

It's Halloween and you and your twin are about to go trick-or-treating. Depending on whether you choose Reynold or Wren is really more a visual choice (hooray for gender options!) since the story will more or less play out the same way. Your character will dress up in a homemade robot costume while your sibling will dress up as candy corn. And because of this, your sibling will eventually get kidnapped by a monster who is looting the town for candy. And now it becomes up to you to rescue your sibling and stop the monster plot.

The exploration part of the game basically has you going around town collecting bits of candy. Candy is the game's currency, which you use to purchase items like Battle Stamps that help your characters in combat. You can find candy on the ground or you can bop a mailbox or some other part of the environment and hope some candy falls out or you can go trick-or-treating. And typically you need to visit all houses in an area before you can proceed. You also need to hunt down materials that you can use to create new costumes that will open up new opportunities for your characters.

The other part of the game is the actual combat, which happens any time you encounter one of the monsters either walking around or hiding in one of the trick-or-treat places you try your luck with. Then things shift to a turn-based environment where you're all larger than life versions of your characters facing equally large monsters. Thus your little cardboard robot costume turns into a full anime-worthy mecha-style suit complete with a higher attack that rains missiles down on your enemies.

The game overall _can_ become monotonous a bit, but I think the quirkiness and story make up for it. As a $15 regular price game, you can't expect any revolutionary. The game has a fun, quirkiness that a lot of other games lack, which I appreciate and think makes it unique.

This is one of those games that if it came out a couple years later, then it would have probably been a mobile game. It has the same sort of simple and immediate gameplay that'd probably suit touch devices well.

As it is now, it's a decent couple hour romp through a cutesy RPG get, with a somewhat neat mechanic if switching out costumes for new abilities and stats. It's not exactly a new mechanic, and it has been done better as well. But it's a solid mechanics here too, with its own sort of twist on the idea.

Though I will say the simplistic combat drags it down. It feels like everything you do is rote, and there isn't any real devising of attack strategies.

And the game is short enough that it never felt like the game even got a chance to actually test how well you understood the game, and to give you a decent challenge.

But, it does have a nice presentation. And as far as the gameplay goes, my only actual complaint is that nothing felt fully realized. Everything is here that would make for a good game, it just as my left in the oven long enough to fully cook. So as a light and potentially beginner friendly rpg, it has a place, but anyone wanting a more meaty experience should look elsewhere.
