In this 3D adventure game, you play as Razputin Aquato, aka Raz, a 10-year-old boy of 1m29 who joins the Psychonauts recruiting program. With his spiritual powers, he can move objects with telekinesis, shoot fireballs with telekinesis, fly or see through the eyes of people and animals like a fortune-teller. There are a total of eight different powers to gain.
Psychonauts 2 shines in storytelling. You don’t even need to play the first game to be a part of it. You will be immersed in an amazing and very original world. The dialogues are great and funny. The story is full of plot twists and the game is full of good ideas. Psychonauts 2 is a true breath of fresh air. The story line goes in all directions – sometimes too much – and the different worlds are very diverse.
Psychonauts 2 knows how to surprise you again and again. One minute you are in a kind of cooking reality show where you have to prepare dishes while completing crazy obstacle courses. And after a few minutes you find yourself in the middle of a world where everything revolves around bowling and where you have to step forward on a giant bowling ball.
Not a graphic masterpiece
While the world of Psychonauts 2 is captivating and enchanting, we have to admit that the game is a bit behind in terms of graphics. The graphics don’t do justice to the power of the new Xbox Series X, the console we tested the game on. So there isn’t a big graphic, but that doesn’t really matter. In addition, the game works flawlessly and without graphic or technical errors.
The Psychonauts sequel took at least 16 years to complete. But our patience is more than rewarding. Psychonauts 2 is a quirky original game that immerses you in the twists and turns of the brain and treats you on an unrivaled adventure. Although the game is not graphically impressive, it features storytelling, humor, and diverse gameplay. Icing on the Cake: Psychonauts 2 is included in the Xbox Game Pass. A perfect opportunity to discover this original immersive game.
