Great story, amazing art, beautiful experience - This is one of those games that transcends categories, blurs genres and defies simple description. The gameplay its self is accessable, simple enough to get you playing quickly, but with enough complexity and inventiveness to keep you interested for the long haul. The place this game really shines is in its story and art. Every single character has their own individual traits and tics (even the incidental characters that don't directly relate to the plot), the story is beautifully surreal, and the various environments within the game are mind-bendingly innovative. I found myself treating this game like a compelling novel; I just needed to see what would happen next, what wonderful weirdness the next twist in the plot would bring. This game is totally worth it!

Most frustrating game ever on pc! - This is THE WORST game I've ever played on a pc. It goes from boring, idiotic arrowhead quests to impossible and near impossible puzzles/battles. It's as if the makers of this game absolutely hate their gaming customers! The puzzles, quest items, etc. are often so badly designed/placed that you're required to attempt dozens of times before you succeed — do they think stupid and frustrating repetition is fun? It felt like the game was set up to make you keep failing, because the way the camera moves at the last second or some object is in the way so you can't see your destination or whatever,. but when you land after missing there is an arrowhead for you to get. This must mean they knew you'd land there! Truly, it feels like a sadist's game. There is no way to succeed in one battle with a giant where the actions required can't be done — WASD + space bar + shift key + right-click all while running around on the outside of a cube and trying to find and destroy a machine that will kill the giant! I'd need four hands and three pairs of eyes and I'd still fail because the giant only needs two steps to MY 200 steps to overcome me and stomp me!

Lost Save Data - All of a sudden my save data has disappeared. I started the application up as usual and it acted as if I were starting a new game. I'm not sure where the data went or how I can access it, but I would greatly appreciate if something could be done to fix this! Thanks.

crashes at startup with new update 10.9.4 - I love this game, but the program just crapped out after macbook pro update to 10.9.4. The problems seemed to begin in the theater level when I tried to take the boat in part 1 of the bad mail delivery scene to part 2. When the scene attempted to update, the game would crash. After several restarts and getting to the scene via a convluted path through portals and chaning the mood lighting, I was finally able to get to part 2. When switching the mood lighting back to happy, I entered the portal to get the upper figment in scene 1. There was no problem going through the portal and back to scene 1, but then whenever I tried to move in any direction, jump, or perform any action, I was transported back to scene 2. After trying to overcome this several times, the game crashed and keeps doing so everytime I want to start up. I am given the following message: "The last time you opened Psychonauts, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again? If you choose not to reopen windows, you may have to open and position the windows yourself.” I have tried both reopen and don’t reopen options and the game still crashes upon opening. Please look into this issue. I want to give this game a higher rating, but if I can’t play it, I can’t give it any stars.

disappointment - In the new update, i lost all my saves, even one that i was saving for a long time for meat circus when i was ready to do it. Im really sad, but its fine going throught the game again. the shadows now look really white for me, and in the middle of talking it cuts off, so i have to use subtitles. Overall this is a great game, Its design and plot is really creepy, just my style! Even with bugs, this game is one of the best games ive ever played.
