We just couldn’t have a list of the best single-player games on Xbox Game Pass 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.
It’s perhaps just how colourful and vibrant Psychonauts 2 is that sets it apart. Each of its worlds is completely different from the last, packed with unique challenges and adventures for Raz to take part in. Maybe you’re making your way through a circus in the forest, set up by your weird and wonderful family. Or maybe you’re jumping through a music festival, where you’ll find a stellar performance from none other than Jack Black. With a wonderful story, gorgeous world design and characters you can’t help but love, Psychonauts 2 is well worth a visit if you’re looking for an excellent single-player game.
