I have included the current packaging in my Preview. (I do not know if this is final or the ESRB classification yet.) In case you were wondering about this game this is an augmented reality 3DS game (like System Flaw on the DSi) that simulates a paranormal mystery where you use the camera to track down hidden ghosts, so you can consider this like a combo of something like System Flaw's concept + TV's "Ghost Adventures". If that sounds like something I suggest preordering this. Thanks for reading.
Not playable in an apartment.
The tutorials were really fun, seems like it would be a good game. However, once you start playing, it just keeps telling you to walk further and further. I live in an apartment, and I walked all around it for 20 minutes, but it still wanted me to walk further before I could start fighting ghosts. If you live in a giant house, this game would probably be great. however, the only way I could possibly play this game would be to wander around the streets while holding the 3ds in front of my face. Since I don't want to be hit by a car, I guess I'll have to sell this on ebay.
It Should've stayed hidden
The only thing 'Hidden' is ingenuity and fun because I couldn't find it. I literally played for 10 minutes before lending it to two friends, both returned it to me the next day and hated it as well. The summary on the back of the box sounded awesome, too bad it was completely different than how the actual game played out. The game plays like face raiders in the fact that you have to move your 3DS around to find enemies that look like bugs rather than ghosts. Do this for more than 10 minutes and you're fully bored. In addition to repetitive gameplay the controls become awkward making you move your 3DS pretty far in different directions to try and find a ghost making it hard to play if you don't have space and are not standing up. Buyer Beware.
This game is nothing but Face Raiders except with ghosts instead of your friends' faces. It's not worth more than a penny for the case.

First Augmented Reality Game!
This game has been confirmed to use augmented reality to show ghosts and other creepy things appearing in the surrounding environment. You use investigative skills to find and destroy hundreds of ghosts and find clues to help progress the story. It sounds amazing!!
I Hope This is scary!
This should be very scary and bloody just by the title, so this is true horror so get this.
Being an amateur ghost hunter, when I saw this game, all I could think was "OMG!!! I so gotta have this!!" And, well, I do so gotta have this!! It looks great, especially with the augmented reality of it. This looks like it will pull off well on the 3DS system with the amazing graphics in the system. I am definitely looking forward to getting hooked to this one! Once again, Nintendo, you rock my socks!

Don't be fooled!
Before I buy a game, I research it to make sure it's what I want. When I visited this site, and saw all the low reviews, I thought, "It can't be THAT bad!" I was WRONG! I got bored after 3 days of playing, and I didn't finish it because it quickly lost its appeal. The "story" was hard to follow because it progressed while you 'hunted ghosts'. While the cover seemed pretty cool, the game itself is quite lame, you're better off with 'Face Raiders', mainly because that one's free. It is a waste of money, buy something else more worthy of attention.
