Psychonauts 2

We just couldn’t have a list of the best single-player games on Xbox without including Psychonauts 2, could we? This first-party game from Xbox Studios is one of the best single-player adventure games in recent years. A follow-up to the original Psychonauts which released way back in 2005, Psychonauts 2 puts you back in the shoes of Raz, who’s now an intern at the Psychonauts agency. As a Psychonaut, you’ll be tasked with jumping into people’s heads, exploring their consciousness, and traversing some truly incredible environments in the process.

Kim said: “You might groan and grumble as Razputin messes up yet another jump, but as Psychonauts 2 progresses, unravelling yet another spectacular world for you to explore, you’ll likely forget about any frustrations. This is a brilliantly designed game, and it’s clear a huge amount of ingenuity has gone into its creation. Whether you’re battling hand-puppets, talking to a papercraft William Shakespeare or gambling inside a maternity ward (no, really), one thing is for sure: you’re going to have a lot of fun playing Psychonauts 2.”
