Progression is rather linear, but it is actually fun. Everything about the game is unique, from the art style to most of the abilities to the characters to the dialogue. Black Velvetopia especially is a beautiful piece of art. Wonderful game all around but is also has minor annoyances.
For example, the mouse and keyboard combination takes getting used too and some parts of the game are down right infuriating with them. Small parts of stages have awful design (I'm looking at the Waterloo mainly). Found myself exploiting the hell out of levitation.
Still, I highly recommend this game.
NOTE: If you are using Windows 7, I recommend going to Psychonauts.exe > Properties and sticking it in Compatibility mode with Windows 95. The game up until Gloria's Theater ran fine, but then the graphics started messing up and the fps hit the fan. Doing the above fixed it and I encounter no issues past that.
