Conclusion: Seriously this is a good kids game. Ok I played this and it took me 4 hours to beat it but the action is great and theres a wide wide wide! variety of missions but some are repeted in the same levels only with new bad guys to fight. Now you only have 1 attack button with is annoying (right thumbstick) and you can pick of weapons that only work about 3 shots like a chair or someting.
Summary: This is a more primative and childlike game. It is set up to look like a comic book. You are a boy who is trying to set fee his friend from the evil master of a mansion. You go through each room of the mansion and you must complete a new challenge everytime. Such as using only weapons to fight the Ghoulies. The Ghoulies are different types of monsters such as mumies, spiders, and skeletons.
Summary: This game is awesome! I played this as a child and now as an adult I still get the same amount of enjoyment from it =) I play this on my partners xbox 360 just to make it clear it is possible to as that was something I had to research.
Summary: I've no idea if this is a good product. Delivery was excellent, despatched quickly and arrived in perfect condition. Problem is, and I accept this is my own fault, is that, even after purchasing the extra HDD Drive, it still didn't work cos it's American and therefore not suitable for my region.
ONE OF THE RARE-ST PLATFORM GAMES I'VE EVER PLAYED.

Summary: I had this game since the year it was released on christmas it may had some weird controls but the whole game was great and challenging with it's type of BANJO-KAZOOIE humor the game does deserve a long waited sequel or a HD remake.
Summary: a while ago i got the original Xbox for my son for Xmas and along with it came a couple of games as part of a bundle, "Grabbed by the Ghoulies" was one of them, as i said it was a while ago but what i do remember is that it was never completed, we had a choice of a number of games to choose 2 of and this had pretty good reviews but i'm afraid it didn't live up to them, so from memory our review score would have to be 4 out of 10.
Summary: After Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country (GBC) and Banjo-Kazooie Banjo-Kazooie (N64) , you would have thought that the brilliant days (heavy emphasis on Perfect Dark and 007 Goldeneye) of Rareware were over. WRONG! Even though this is a kiddie game, it is so much fun! The graphics are in a cartoony fashion that made me laugh, and there are so many lines that make you giggle uncontrollably! 5/5, 10/10, 6/6, whatever! This is defenitly one of Rare's best games!
Excerpt: "While Grabbed by the Ghoulies may present itself quite well, the dull gameplay that hides behind the great graphics and sound really hurts the experience. With Halloween just around the corner, the time is right for games with a slightly spooky flavor. Microsoft's answer to the holiday question is Rare's first game for the Xbox, Grabbed by the Ghoulies. It's a haunted mansion romp that looks and sounds really impressive, but it's ultimately marred ...
Excerpt: "...into the world of xbox. Grabbed by the ghoulies. The game sees you take the role of a nerdy teenager as he attempts to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend. Not exactly original, but we'll let that slip if the games any good. So is it? Well, sort of. The gameplay is simple with one stick used to control the character and one to direct melee attacks. Thats about it really. So anyone will be able to play this game. The graphics are amazingly ...
Pros: Rare on xbox . Few games like it on xbox . Looks nice . Simple gameplay .
Excerpt: "Grabbed by the Ghoulies that could be painful. This is Rare's first outing on the Xbox after Microsoft's buy out, but if this is the shape of things to come from Rare with its excellent cartoon graphics and simple effective sounds giving an injection of fun and the player a laugh and a smile then Xbox owners are in for a treat. But at the same time firing another nail in the coffin for Nintendo's Game Cube possibly? The story begins with Cooper (you) ...
Pros: Good graphics, game play
Cons: can be repetitive, awkward camara angles, only one player
