Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Outstanding Game The best words to describe this game is a diamond in the ruff. I have been playing Nintendo games since I was a little kid and only when I played a free chapter of the game did I learn of Ghost Trick. After playing the whole game straight for many hours, unable to set it down, I realized it was the best game I have ever played. Though if I did have one problem with the game, it would be that no one knows about this game. Oh well, if you are a gamer who likes solving puzzles, unique graphics, a great soundtrack, and a thrilling story, than this game is perfect for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Shocker for A Puzzle The game is probably a marvel for a DS puzzle/mystery game. It offers the player abilities to manipulate their way around the world. The graphics are amazing when you consider the DS. The story is very in depth with a web of stories connecting into one. Every bit of the game was fun, lasting, and has a mysterious ending which may make you cry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ghost Trick Demands Attention Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was by far one of the best games I have played on the Nintendo DS platform. The story itself was unique and captivating, demanding my attention even when I was busy with something besides the game. I enjoy a good mystery and this game was no disappointment. Ghost Trick's graphics were really stunning. The two dimensional images danced across the screen and added so much more life to the game. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a mystery and does not mind getting frustrated by the puzzles that will lie before them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an awesome game of murder mystery! This game is one of the best games ever. All of the character have real personalities, cool looks thanks to the character artist, stories, and ways that connect to your character, Sissel. In this game while trying to find out your own mystery, you meet unique and strange people that somehow connect to your own murder. Including the fact that you must save others from their deaths with your GHOST TRICKS!!!!!!! I am now obsessed with this game. I recomend this to anyone 11 and up because of the language used, but this is the best intriging, confusing (in a good way),mystery game I've ever played!!!! PLAY IT!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing game! This is an awesome game! I love it! Every new chapter I had chills, and the story is amazing! The graphics really tell the story along with great detail of the human characters! The backgroung settings and stories are amazing! In some way all the lives of different people lead Sissel into finding out who he really is! I also love saving people from their deaths! It's really lots of fun! The story got a little confusing when you try to fing out who Sissel really is, but in the end, every story, every mystery, and every death intertwines until you find out that Sissel is a ------. Ooops, I can't tell you that. You'll just have to find out for yourself! I love this game!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from simply a great game a great game with a fresh innovative and unique concept. The graphics are the best on the system and the animation is so smooth it almost feels like watching cutscenes. The puzzles are fun and interesting. It's just too bad there's no replay value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good puzzles, FANTASTIC plot. Sometimes suspenseful, often charming, "Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective" is a neat little puzzle game with plenty of mystery and complex plot. I couldn't have anticipated the final plot twist.
