Review: Psychonauts 2 is one of the most memorable platformers in years

It’s always a risk creating a sequel to a cult classic so long after the original, but in Psychonauts 2, Double Fine hasn't only made a game that respects the original and takes its characters to new heights, it has set itself, and new owner Microsoft, up with a platforming franchise that can thrive for years to come.

  • Incredibly creative and memorable levels
  • Excellent performances and a well told story
  • Visually stunning on Xbox Series X
  • Dated combat
  • Frustrating boss fights
4 / 5
