Hello, my name is Eric Rogers from parentinggamers.com and, in the spirit of October and Halloween, this is my “Let’s Play” video of Costume Quest 2. In this series of videos, I am playing different games that I recommend to you as a parent. These are high quality games your gamer will enjoy with content you will approve.
So let’s play Costume Quest 2.
Costume Quest 2 is a turn-based role-playing game, or RPG. The player controls a group of kids who just want to trick-or-treat on Halloween. Their plans are thwarted by an evil dentist, Dr. Orel Write, who is set on ending Halloween forever. The kids collect candy and costumes in their efforts to stop him.
The hook to Costume Quest 2 is it’s costume/combat system. The player unlocks new abilities by gathering materials for different costumes. In this fight, you can see I am using a Pterodactyl, a candy corn, and a super hero costume. Normally, the player would replace the candy corn costume because the character using it can’t help in the fight, thus putting the player at a disadvantage. However, there is an achievement for finishing the game using the candy corn costume in every fight, which is why I am using it here.
As you can see, the combat is turn-based. Each character gets a chance to perform different moves on their turn. The player tries to time button presses to the prompt on the screen. The closer she gets to perfect, the more damage the character will do. This also works when the enemy attacks. The closer the player gets to being perfect with those prompts, the less damage she takes.
Costume Quest 2 is a fun game I use to help me get in the holiday spirit. I love pulling it out at the beginning of October to help me get the Halloween juices flowing. It is rated E10+, which is the equivalent of a PG movie rating. It is available on the PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U.
