  • Excerpt: Geist, billed as the thinking man’s first person shooter, is the first game of its type to be exclusive for the Gamecube in a long time. While typically a straightforward FPS under the hood, Geist manages to introduce some interesting concepts at the same time making it an experience that combines some intricate puzzle solving elements, a little bit of stealth, and enough running and gunning to satisfy anyone’s bloodlust.

  • Conclusion: Nintendo and N-Space have created a haunting shooter experience that turns the traditional FPS on its ear. Some minor control issues, slight framerate stutters and a brief musical selection prevent Geist from being perfect, but the intriguing story, innovative multiplayer and spectral gameplay keep the game fresh and make it a must-have for GameCube owners.

  • Summary: The shooter portions of Geist aren't all that special, but there's a lot more to this game than meets the eye.
  • Pros: Unique premise enables a lot of fun possession-based gameplay, Single-player adventure offers plenty of surprises and variety, Surprisingly good use of slow-motion effects, Solid multiplayer takes some liberties with conventions
  • Cons: Shooter portions tend to feel a little stale, Frame rate sometimes chops up pretty badly, Single-player campaign is quite short

  • Conclusion: And I was suprised at how much I enjoyed the story mode. I mean, the reviews in magazines just tear up the game and rip on it, but I don't know what they were playing...It's all together a very solid game, that is very unique and entertaining and brings together the modes and abilities very nicely. Great game. Buy it.
