Costume Quests would probably be a great game for kids with little to no experience with games. Does the same apply to players that don't fit that criteria? No. No, not really. Sadly.
Okay, look, you'll master the game's turn-based combat mechanics in the first hour. After that, the only challenges will be the occasional boss battles. Every other battle will just be a chore of waiting for it to be over, because there pretty much is no way for you to lose or have to develop a certain strategy.
Apart from that, there isn't much gameplay to be had here either. There's a decent enough minigame (bobbing for apples), and in the DLC (freely included) there is a little maze puzzle, which is hardly challenging, but entertaining enough. The rest of the game? Walking around and exploring every nook and cranny of it's world.
Which is a charming enough world. It's a shame, really. The whole concept of the game is cute, the designs and attack animations of the costumes are absolutely wonderful (the eyeball costume's special attack is great in particular), and the dialogue is at times pretty amusing.
But it just doesn't cut it. The game is boring and repetetive (it has 4 areas, and your tasks are the same every single time) and all the charm in the world doesn't make it interesting to play. There is promise there - the final boss fight had some challenge, and it took me a few tries to find the best strategy (which combination of costumes would be most useful to help me win) - but the fact the game doesn't ever really live up to that promise just makes it all the more disappointing.
