Storyline

Against his father's wishes, a young psychic prodigy named Razputin ("Raz" for short) leaves his life in the circus and sneaks into Whispering Rock, a summer camp where young psychics like him can learn to use their powers, and maybe someday become "Psychonauts", psychic secret agents who battle the forces of evil. Raz manages to impress the camp's head counselor, Morceau Oleander, as well as visiting Psychonauts Sasha Nein and Milla Vodello, who agree to let him stay... but only until his father comes to pick him up. But something's amiss at Whispering Rock: a sinister force is stealing the brains from Raz's fellow campers, leaving them mindless, TV-obsessed zombies. Raz decides to put his growing arsenal of psychic powers to good use and investigate the strange goings-on. Along the way, he'll journey into the minds of those around him, and face perils ranging from mad scientists to giant monsters to the psychotic mental constructs lurking within the deranged minds of insane asylum ...

Best game in the last few years.
7 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

The richness of the environments and characters, and the depth of story telling will make you wish that many other games were like psychonauts. I could go on and on about how great I think the game is, but other reviews on numerous other websites and publications have done that. So, instead I will counter a couple of arguments that some may have against the greatness of the game.

For some there may be some jumping or fighting in the game that may be a bit difficult, but a little patience or maybe a break in those situations would help. The camera angles might bother a few, but if you don't get used to them with a little time, you can always play the PC version and control the camera with the mouse and movements with the keyboard. There are also a number of things to collect, and for those who do not like to collect them, then you can ignore all the items that you can't find easily or find a walkthrough that tells you the location of the items. There are walkthroughs available that only tell the locations, and nothing else, for those who feel a full walkthrough would ruin the game. I think you only need to get about half of the items to get most of the good stuff, and after that the rest will just give you a secret cut scene, but my memory is not so great so I could be wrong about that.

I think everyone should really enjoy the game once they give it a chance and go through at least 2 levels, and explore the environment and talk to the characters.

Best of all, in the US, this game can probably be found for $10-25 because it has not sold as well as it should have here. It is worth much more than that, but for that price it's worth a buy for everyone. If you don't like it, you can give it to someone who will.

There are also demos available for ps2, xbox, and PC. I do not know how to find the demos for ps2 or xbox and it may be impossible, or not worth the expense. However, the pc version is easily available for download, if your computer can run it. The xbox360 controllers can provide a console-like experience for those who do not like the mouse and keyboard controls, as they can plug into the usb slot. There are also third party adapters for almost every other console controller on the market, though your mileage may vary.
