Inside Mac Games has posted 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.

Not to mention, if you're OCD about collectibles, this game will have you stuck for days. There are figments hidden everywhere, collectible cards for rank upgrades, arrowheads that you dig up across the real world, luggage pieces that need to be matched to the correct tags, and locked memories you need to chase down and smash open. There's a lot of stuff to miss, and if you want to collect it all you'll be playing for a loooong time. It doesn't help that certain collectibles can't even be collected until you buy a certain item, thus forcing you to replay previous levels to obtain the final collection.

All of this does have a purpose outside of completion, though. Everything but the arrowheads contributes towards raising your psi rank. At certain ranks along the way, you get new abilities and upgrades to old ones, like splitting your main ranged attack to hit multiple enemies at once. Pretty much all the upgrades are useful, so there's a big incentive to collect even if you aren't a gung-ho completionist. Still, none but the most dedicated will ever see the bonus movie at rank 100+ without going to Youtube. It's almost impossible to achieve without a guide, and even with a guide it'll take you forever.
