Because it’s Halloweek! Duh. This game and its predecessor capture the essence of being an American kid experiencing suburban Halloween. Not only do you trick or treat, you discover new costumes that turn you into the thing you’re dressed as and bestowing you with its powers. You combat monsters with a beautifully simple hand-eye coordination system (press the right button at just the right time!) and find candy. It’s Halloweeny and adorable and I love it.
Are any of you playing Costume Quest 2 or its predecessor? What are you playing lately?
