  • Summary: Murder mysterious are a dime a dozen, but it’s not every day the gumshoe is investigating his own death from beyond the grave. Then again, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective -- the latest game by Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi -- isn’t your every day game. For a game about death, Ghost Trick is full of life, with a unique cast of characters, genuinely sharp writing, and fresh gameplay.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (DS) - Review

VGChartz
24 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Death is a sign of failure in many games; it is the punishment for failing to complete the mission that the game has laid out in front of you. By contrast, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective embraces death, and does so to the point that the entire game is based around the death of Sissel, the main character. That’s right, you’re dead. Right when the game starts. I know, I know, it’s tough to accept. Let it sink in for a bit. … Ok, now that you’re dead, the fun really begins.
