    Truly the best time of year.

    Costume Quest is a charming game for anyone, of any age. With it's fun story and addicting game play, Costume Quest became a quick favorite to play around Halloween. The battle system is great, consisting of simple QTE events and the awesome animations that go along with the different costumes special abilities, I couldn't help but actively seek out fights when I could. While it lacks in variety in terms of enemies, fights and areas, it makes up for with many other positive aspects. Seeing my candy bag fill up, learning what powers each costume had, feeling that bit of nostalgia of getting dressed up and running around with friends on Halloween maybe this game something I will seek to go back to every year around the same time.

In order to proceed further and rescue your sibling from the clutches of the monsters hell-bent on stealing candy from your town, you need to acquire new costumes. Many of them have abilities that can...
