    Costume Quest's immense charm can only carry its repetitive gameplay so far.

    Pros: Funny writing; Charming art style Cons: Repetitive gameplay; Low difficulty Although Christmas may be the overall more popular holiday, Halloween just might be the most magical for kids. Here is a night wher... Read Full Review

    An original and truly unique gaming experience

    I'd like to think of Costume Quest as a mini RPG that is a charming adventure of young twin siblings Reynold and Wren. The game begins with you choosing one of the pair and the other getting kidnapped. The game has a sub... Read Full Review

    Too short and way too easy ruin what would otherwise be a Superb RPG.

    The story starts with two siblings fighting over who's older, and then who should be in charge of the two when they go out Trick-or-treating. At this point you can choose to play as either the boy or the girl. Once you c... Read Full Review

    Lovable characters and a great level of detail make this a fun little Halloween game, with a good laugh here and there.
