Grabbed by the Ghoulies is a humorous beat-'em-up adventure game that takes place in a haunted house full of crazed ghoulies. Gamers play the role of Cooper, a kid on a mission to rescue his girlfriend, who has been "grabbed by the ghoulies". Players will venture through the haunted and ominous Ghoulhaven Hall, battling it out with a variety of monsters while trying to escape the many tricks, traps and shocks awaiting them along the way. Packed with action, Grabbed by the Ghoulies is filled with unexpected surprises, and all that fail to get through Ghoulhaven Hall are imprisoned within and never seen again.

Rare's highly anticipated debut game for the Xbox was an instant classic!
At the start of the game, you see your girlfriend (Amber) kidnapped by the evil Baron-Von-Ghoul and you (Cooper) need to venture through his spooky mansion and get her back. However, the Baron has many evil 'ghoulies' to stop you succeeding. The colourful graphics of the game are excellent and perfectly suited to the 'scary but comical' environment. These are complimented by a wonderful soundtrack and many sound effects (many imported straight from the N64 classic: Banjo-Kazooie) to build up the atmosphere. While the controls are fairly basic, they are easy to get used to and give a slick fighting experience.
Cooper can perform a variety of fighting moves in order to get through each room and complete the challenges set. All objects in the rooms (from plant pots to grand pianos) can be used to help Cooper beat up the resident ghoulies. The game starts easy but as you progress you can use many comical weapons such as the 'Soda-Can Launcher' and 'Sacred Water Pistol' to name a few. Once completed, you can replay the game to unlock bonus mini-games and find extras you missed the first time.
Innovative gameplay, a great plot and a host of extra features make this a must have game for any Xbox owner.

After Donkey Kong CountryDonkey Kong Country (GBC) and Banjo-KazooieBanjo-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!

Its no surprise that Rare's XBox debut doesn't match its previous efforts. Grabbed By The Ghoulies was put together in around 12-18 months, half the time of a 'typical' Rare release. The gameplay is simple and addictive, with plenty of the developers trademark humour and wit. Its essentially a comedy-beat'em-up, bearing striking resemblance to Nintendo's Luigi's Mansion. GBTG is a means of widening the XBox demographic and generating a small profit by minimal expenditure. Ok, so its a shame that Rare didn't release Perfect Dark II, or Kameo, or something like it; but ignore the bad press, sit down with a copy, and Grabbed By The Ghoulies may just suprise you.

Grabbed by the Ghoulies is a smart looking beat-'em-up set in a spooky mansion. You take control of Cooper, a paranoid boy who has to rescue his girlfriend when she is kidnapped by the creepy residents of the mansion. But he is faced by an armarda of zombies,mummies and vampires along with other hideous creatures on his quest. He is aided by many characters along the way, like a waiter and the mansion's groundsperson. With over 50 rooms to explore and over 100 weapons this is a game which should be in anyone's collection.

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.
