Summary: I enjoyed it. The game play by some, could be construed as monotonous, perhaps. As a fan of Ghost in the Shell, the game is decent. The graphics, style and story are well done, and the actual voice actors for the movies/tv series were brought in for the game. That is a bonus for me.
Summary: Allow me to open by saying that I have never seen Ghost in the Shell. I am aware of it though. This will strictly be about the stand alone game (pun intended). I bought this for my girlfriend as GitS is her favourite anime. I wanted to give the game a shot and buying it secondhand gave me the perfect cover to do so without her knowing. The controls take a little to get used to, but once you acclimate to them, they feel very fluid and responsive.
Summary: Although this game can be quite a challenge at times, it is nevertheless a solid product for the ps2. All the characters are voiced by the same english actors from the tv series, and the graphics are pretty solid for the hardware it runs on. Gameplay is fun, and the story stays true to the Ghost in the Shell universe. All in all, a great product for a good price!
If your a fan of the SAC and the movies, you'll love this game

Summary: If your into anime and a Ghost in the Shell fan then get this game. - Really balance gameplay, controls feel solid and functional - Hack enemies and control them for a short period of time (even use them to kill other enemies) - Play as Major and Bato, every other level or so you alternate - The Story feels true to the sprit of the Stand Alone Complex series -Some jumping puzzles sour experience - You pretty much have to be a fan of the show it like this game, story wise...
