Summary: If you like the Ace Attorney games, you'll like this too. The characters are just as fun, lovable and memorable as the previously mentioned game series. The game play and plot are good, though sometimes repetitive. The ending, while good, could have been much better. And it is way too short. I wanted to play loads more chapters, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, wanting more of a good game. Worth every penny.
Ghost Trick has a great story, but lacks in gameplay

Summary: The Good: Gorgeous graphics and animation, great use of the touch screen, deep story with memorable characters The Bad: Story is convoluted at the end, poor difficulty balancing, too much trial and error, more talking than gameplay, gets redundant after a while The last great game I remember playing where you were a ghost was Geist for GameCube.
Summary: I had bought this game for my daughter for Christmas gift. It was one of several games she had on her christmas list she gave me. She loves it and enjoys it. She is happy so I am happy. Also the game arrived as promised and everything was in tact. Thank you.
Summary: I bought this game at the same time I bought 9 People 9 Doors 9 Hours (999). The storyline "Ghost Trick" was really interesting, and the "who dun it" aspect of it kept me playing until the end. The conclusion of the game is quite unexpected, and the game does a great job delivering the storyline and keeping you reading to find out what happens. However, at times, the game is too scripted.
Summary: As most other reviews state, this is an engaging, fun game with a really good, albeit odd, story. My only beef is with the controls and the limited scope of the 'puzzles'. While I enjoy that puzzles have a time limit, you do get to start over and 'redo' very often without any real penalty for starting over. This makes the game coast by.
Summary: I am a great fan of Professor Layton games. After playing the last two games featuring Prof Layton and Scribblenauts, I decided to for something different this time. I chanced upon Ghost Trick through a review in Gamespot.com. I felt that I was taking a risk but the game did not let me down. So far I have played 6 chapters and the gameplay keeps getting better chapter by chapter.
Summary: You just woke up...but, wait! You're dead. So begins the story of your character, Sissel, and the night of his murder. The game pretty much begins with you lying dead, just discovering you've been murdered. Now the only question is why were you murdered and who killed you? As Sissel, you decide to find out. Because it turns out you only have one night to do so.
Summary: I absolutely loved this game. The story was interesting, the characters were fun, it had genuine plot twists that I didn't see coming but that made sense when they happened, and the gameplay was amazingly fun. That said, I did have a few complaints. The first is that there are not nearly enough playable sections. Sometimes there would be a good 20-30 minutes of dialogue, 5 minutes of gameplay, and then another half-hour of dialogue.
Summary: This has been a very unique game to play. The premise is that the main character awakens and realizes he is dead. He then learns to interact with objects in his world (within limitations) to change the fate of events including reversing the death of other characters. I did find that the actual puzzle solving time was limited and there was tons of dialogue to weed through.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of the Ace Attorney series from Capcom, so when I heard the creator was working on this game I just haaad to get it. As you progress through the game you'll instantly recognize the Ace Attorney feel. The game-play was interesting, and it changes towards the end of the game. The story on the other hand was a let-down. It seemed to drag you in but then when you get to the end you're kind of like, "What just happened?" Overall, this game was pretty neat.
