As the sequel to one of my favorite games, Psychonauts 2 had a high bar to clear, but it jumped that bar with room to spare. The visual style survived the transition to HD graphics very well, with expressive characters and interesting locations that are a joy to explore. The memorable bosses and top-notch writing, including honest and respectful depictions of mental health, make up for the somewhat lackluster combat, and it has some great accessibility options. Psychonauts 2 was absolutely worth the 16 year wait and turned out to be one of 2021’s best games. It’s an absolute classic.
