A lot of people have issues with this game, but for me specifically, it's a perfect sequel. The elements it does worse than 1 are parts I never particularly cared about. Psychonauts 2 is far more consistent, with basically every mental world being interesting and the pacing being a lot tighter.

The game has a far more compelling antagonist, twists that work, far more responsive controls and improvements in basically every facet of gameplay, even more inventive art direction and new characters I love combined with in depth exploration of many old ones (Ford in particular). Compton Boole, Bob Zanotto and Cassie were especially compelling and explored a lot of stuff I could relate to in interesting ways. Psychonauts 2 is the kind of game that definitely has its issues, but that I personally loved so much I want to make excuses for anything it does do wrong.

a really well made platform, lot of charms, and musical pieces

It is like the first game but worse so still good

This is a game so chock full of great concepts, weird and engaging characters, and fulfilling story arcs. It also unfortunately has occasional moments of quite frustrating and dated feeling gameplay, which end up hampering an otherwise exquisite experience.
