Differences in Psychonauts 2 vs Original Psychonauts - Combat System:

The combat of Psychonauts 2 looks promising & compared with the original, the combat of the sequel is more fluid. Players can use a wide range of psychic powers for blasting, burning, & levitating objects, or they can manipulate time to crack puzzles & fight bizarre rivals. The old Psychonauts was not very good at handling combat b/w heroes & the enemies.

Psychic powers have a greater advantage in the fight. Certain rivals are vulnerable to these powers. Players can adapt their combat style to the rival. In the original game, there were not enough psychic abilities & in the sequel there are many psychic powers & you can customize them to suit your combat style. You can change your powers as you play different game levels.

Also, rivals are more competent & they have an advanced AI. Characters can dodge attacks & progress. Prioritizing powers is a real game changer in Psychonauts 2.
