Macworld has published a new review of Double Fine's Psychonauts. Brought to Mac in partnership with TransGaming, the action adventure title follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin on a quest to join an elite group of international psychic secret agents. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.
From the review:
Psychonauts’ head writer and creative director Tim Schaefer got his start on many of LucasArts’ classic adventure games. Like them, Psychonauts brims with sharp dialogue, subversive humor, and a hilarious and well-voiced cast of vivid weirdoes. But it also fuses story and character development like no other game I’ve played. Each gorgeously designed level unfolds inside a different character’s mind, with challenges reflecting their troubled pasts and personal demons. A little curiosity can lead you from a goofy go-go dance party to a roomful of flames, where shadows chillingly hiss, “Why didn’t you save me?”Click on the link below to read more.
There’s something fun and different around every corner, from adventurous puzzle solving to hectic combat to fast-paced racing. The plot can get so compelling that it’s easy to get ahead of yourself, missing fun chances to explore and interact with your fellow campers in your haste to advance the story. Thankfully, the game builds in ways to backtrack when you need a crucial item.
