Editors' review

This unusual 3D platformer stunned us with its comic 3D models, well- staged conversations, and superb special effects. The brainchild of Tim Schafer, creator of the classic LucasArts adventures Full Throttle and Grim Fandango, Psychonauts starts with a long cutscene set in a camp where kids are trained to become secret agents called psychonauts, who specialize in psychic attacks. You control a boy named Raz, who, in the demo, travels through the mind of a mad general. You run, jump, swing, and walk on ropes, collect various items, and solve puzzles. In that respect, Psychonauts reminds us of Tomb Raider, except you can talk to any NPC in the game and listen in on countless conversations. The graphics are astounding, with facial animations that approach animated-movie quality. The controls are intuitive and customizable. We also like the game's original interface, with lovely menus that look like sheets of paper. In conclusion, Psychonauts is one of the best games we've ever played. Don't miss this underappreciated gem.
