Review: Ghost Trick Phantom Detective (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
28 March 2011
  • Summary: Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective proves to be another strong showing from the mind behind the Ace Attorney games, and it retains much of the charm and humor from those games while also branching out into new territory. The animations are nicely done and have somewhat of a noir feel to them. The environment puzzles are enjoyable, and it’s fun to experiment with manipulating objects.

Ghost Trick Review

VideoGamer.com
13 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Designing a video game around the most tired of all narrative crutches - an amnesiac protagonist - is a beguiling decision. It's almost guaranteed to have the critics scowling, so why do developers consistently do it? Still, it's further proof of Shu Takumi's creativity and imagination that Ghost Trick's hero ultimately manages to succeed where so many foggy-brained characters have failed. As the game's title suggests, our hero is a ghost.

  • Summary: If you’ve played any of the Phoenix Wright games then you’ll have a good idea of what’s going to be on offer here, with the usual over the top characters, enjoyable mysteries to be solved, bizarre twists, great music and thoroughly lovely graphics – and that’s without mentioning the disgustingly addictive gameplay.

  • Excerpt: Heeeeeere ghosty-ghosty-ghosty... The more I play games, the more I become enthralled with the more… "unusual" stuff. Maybe it's a weakness of mine - I've been burned before by the likes of Fairytale Fights - but with my share of hits like Sega's gritty Madworld and Aksys' 999 , either the fringe games and genres are growing in popularity or developers are willing to push some creative boundaries . Thankfully, this "Let's try somethin' weird!
  • Pros: Beautiful, smooth animation, Everybody has a unique style and look, Interesting and solvable puzzles, Story is convoluted, doesn't make much sense

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

AV Club
24 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Killing is banal: It’s aim and fire, or some variation thereof. Undoing a murder, though— there’s some impressive sleight-of-hand. That’s the objective in Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective , an idiosyncratic DS game whose hero warps time to bring victims back from the dead. It’s a low-concept adventure that doesn’t fit well into existing categories of games, yet it maintains its individuality without becoming inaccessible.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective Review

  • Excerpt: Dead people don't get a lot done. They don't talk or argue or travel or work—unless they happen to be dead people in Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective . This new logic puzzle/adventure game by Shu Takumi, creator of the Ace Attorney series, tells the story of a guy named Sissel, who sixty seconds into the game finds himself unexpectedly dead, and as a ghost, imbued with the power to change people's fates. Killing off your hero at the start of the game? Who does that?
