    It's a fun game, but I got stuck at some point, and then stopped playing as I got new games.

    My brother introduced this game to me not too long after it came out. I was understandably a little skeptical, given that I had never heard of it, but don't let that fool you. This is an excellent game. The graphics were good for that time, but the really gold was the game play/story and the witty humor of the characters.

    Well, I don't know much about Steam's innards, but I would assume that given that Steam works on Windows 7, it will play.

    It works on Vista x64 for me, It will almost definitely work in 7.

    Neat, I've been wanting to get this game for a while but kept forgetting. Thanks for the reminder and certainly can't complain about the $2 :D

    my sounds works fine. i had problems on vista. you gotta edit the startup files. go on the steam forums and look for sound issue threads.

    bioshock's sound is known to be very shitty

    anyway if the game is only $2 then I may as well buy it, and if it's no fun it'll just sit there next to tf2 and all the rest of these cheap 'gems'.

    I bought it. I'll buy just about any game for $2. I hate the Steam platform though.

    The game was done by Timothy Schafer the same guy who was involved in Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango and Brütal Legend. If you have played any of those games and like the sense of humor you will know what to expect.

    this currency exchange sucks 2$=1.427€=1.234£

    So € using countries are in fact paying more than US and the UK's paying less than US... on average an UK citizen earns more than European or US citizens...

    This in a small scale doesn't seem much but take MW2
    $59.99 = €42.80 = £37.02

    the real prices are UK £39.99 EU €59.99

    So in europe we pay $84.07 for the game while UK pays $64.79

    I bought it on sight for $2 on steam, even though I've played it.

    Its made by Doublefine, which is led by the designers of classic Lucas Arts games like Grim Fandango and Monkey Island. They're also responsible for Brutal Legend, which has had some mixed reviews, but is still a very stylish and creative game. Psychnonauts is no different, just in a more familiar place gameplay wise.

    It works for Win 7. I purchased it through Steam over a year ago. I first played this game on my original XBox and loved it. Playing it again on the PC is great. It definitely can take you a long time to play, especially if you're looking to collect everything under the sun.

    I like how each area is different and requires different strategies to get through them. Think of this as Super Mario 3D on acid. Definitely worth the trip! (no pun intended!)
