Psychonauts 2

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Psychonauts 2 is everything we could have hoped for – witty, eccentric, and just as imaginative as the original. This is one of the best games you’ll ever play.

Game Info

Psychonauts 2 is a mind-bending trip through the strange worlds hiding inside our brains. Freshly-minted special agent and acrobat extraordinaire Razputin “Raz” Aquato returns to unpack emotional baggage and expand mental horizons. Along the way he’ll help new friends, like this magical mote of light voiced (and sung) by Jack Black. Raz must use his powers to unravel dark mysteries about the Psychonauts team and his own family origins.

As witty, eccentric and imaginative as the 2005 action-platformer, with a more developed understanding of mental health.

Improved platforming underpins a glorious return to one of gaming’s most inventive and empathic universes.

8/10

Even with a few rough edges, Psychonauts 2 is just about everything I could have hoped for from this long-awaited sequel.
