As a platformer, it's pretty 'meh' - but the gameplay isn't what makes Psychonauts special. It could've been a point & click adventure or rhythm game or something stupid and it would still have been equally brilliant.

I didn't care much for the story or characters in Psychonauts. They were interesting and charming but only to some degree. The gameplay however as a platformer was great. The level variety was wonderful, easily comparable to the greats like Rayman2 or Mario64. There were levels that played like a turn based strategy game (with the platforming mechanics), and some almost as adventure games with a set of puzzles. The type of scenarios and set-pieces you get to encounter were always great and fresh.

I have never understood the comments like "it was an ok platformer but the other parts were brilliant". It really excelled at platforming.
