" Since everybody managed to remain good and quite about the bad parts of Beyond Good and Evil until after it came back out. And I consider a rerelease of Psychonauts an almost inevitability at this point. I'd like to know (without spoilers) what are the things people didn't like about Psychonauts. "
The last level is frustrating due to a crappy camera and unresponsive controls, but it's not impossible. Aside from that, it's an amazing Tim Schafer game with PS2 quality platforming (Banjo or Jak level). Characters and humor are some of the best in the industry, but the gameplay is just average. Don't think an HD remake will come around though (even though Tim wants to do a sequel). It's available as an XBox Original on Live, though.
@JJWeatherman: That would have no effect on auto-attack being in the game, unless it was a planned Day 1 patch. At the time they were still saying it was in the game. And now they're saying it's not a Day 1 patch.
@Punk1984: Nevermind, definitely don't bother getting the original just for a save import. Apparently there's a known bug in both the console and PC versions where some people are not able to get their choices recognized in the sequel. Apparently this even applies to some early in-game choices from DA2.
@Tuffgong: And you think they didn't realize this confusion a month ago when we had 5 different answers? And you think 3 days ago when the lead designer gave a half-answer he didn't know there was a question about this? You think they just realized 3 hours before the game launched, that it wasn't in there?
They waited until the last possible minute to clarify the situation to people, hoping that they could limit the news' impact and maximize sales by tricking fans. Even when people were saying that leaked copies from retailers didn't have auto-attack in them, they said it was because the games were "illegal copies", which makes no sense and is factually inaccurate.
Also, apparently the DA:O import option is busted for some people.
