Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
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!!!!!!
Looking forward to it
I played a demo version at New York Comic-Con. The animation is very smooth and fun to watch, the writing is great and the gameplay is unique. I've never played Phoenix Wright, but this game is looking like it'll be a winner, and Capcom always delivers quality anyway...I'll be buying this!
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!
The Greatest Story in a Videogame, Ever.
Considering that this games director was the guy that made Phoenix Wright, it should come as no surprise that this game has one of the best and most immersive stories around. But the thing that sold this game for me was that, compared to Phoenix Wrights episodic structure, this game is one whole fluent narrative from beggining to end. And speaking of fluent. THE ANIMATION. Oh my God. The best animation, ever. I swear, in would pay $30 just for the animation and to watch those characters dance around the screen. Trust me, this is the most impressive animation you will EVER see. Just look up a trailer if you don't believe me.It is very true that this game is anime-like, and those who dont appreciate that style of storytelling might be a bit turned off to this game. The story very nice with little or no plot holes at the end, though the revealing of a certain characters past could have been better in my opinion. Now for the gameplay. It is unlike anything you have seen before, but I consider it to be a chain reaction type of thing. you go back to four minutes before a persons death and try to prevent it by interacting with objects in the environment. It is very simple if you look at it, so the fact that the developers could make something as simple as this feel varied and never tiring is a huge plus on their part. The sound and music are very nice as well, and always seem to complement the games mood perfectly. Ive never been a big fan of game soundtracks, (Minus Zelda games) but this game has got some very nice tunes to it. I told you what i liked about the story, but i cant reveal much more than that due to the fact that i would never want to reveal anything about this games amazing, AMAZING story. But i will say that th characters are varied and their development is very nice, and the game closes itself decently at the end, but compared to the rest of the game the ending is a bit lacking. Once you beat the game, though, theres nothing else left. Im afraid, even though this a lengthy 12-15 hour adventure, when you are done, you are done. Basically thats everything I can say about this game. I will give it a 9 but please note that this game was SO close to a 10, its just that ending that fell a bit flat for me. Thats all.
Ghost Trickery Never Was This Much Fun
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a blast. I pre-ordered the game and they got it in today, and since I have put it in my DS I have not stoppped playing it. Everything so far is superb about this game, and also it's from the makers of Phoenix Wright so you know it's good, and filled with mild humor, and puzzle solving. I recommend this game to any fan of Phoenix Wright, or to anyone who loves a game with a unique plot filled with puzzle solving. Hands down one of the best games I have picked up recently!
I've played the nintendo channel demo, and this game is really cool! Anyone who plays the ace attorney series, or liked puzzle games, will definatly like this. Even in simply the demo version (which involved breaking the fourth wall) there was a good way to get a feel for the game. Some things to note is that each chapter/level thing has a time limit, and there are multiple ways to solve them. There are also some things they put in just for fun (Like punting the dog!). All and all, the game is really cool, and I'm planning to get some time in the future.
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.
I was reading NP the other day and they said that this will be from the guys that made phoenix wright games. It looks awesome, kind of like scribllenauts combined with a detective game, except your dead... Apparently you can control over 100 items, so it looks like there will always be more than one path.This looks pretty good!
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.
Capcom strikes again
In short, great game, great controls, great story, great job Capcom! its a niche game from the PW creators, if your a Ace Attorney fan like i am you should check the game out. Its not LIKE Ace Attorney, but is from the people that brought us the series and they always put out good material IMO.
