Ghost Squad-a surprisingly fun game for the wii!,
This review is from: Ghost Squad (Wii) (Video Game)
I admit i was very wary and hesitant on buying this game, upon learning the only online is leaderboards and that the campaign gives you 30 mins max to complete i was quite pushed to buying something else instead. But hell im glad i did buy it in the end now!!
The game feels like such a classic arcade game. From characters movements, the cheesy voices and sound effects and the mission objectives and music you'll feel like your back in the arcade.
Graphics 3/5: The graphics are classic arcade graphics but i wasnt expecting anything anything revolutionary and i dont think anyone else was. The graphics are cheesy but they just add to that classic arcade feel.
Audio 4/5: I cant really mark down a game on audio unless its truly terrible but i quite like ghost squads, the music feels so arcadey and is quite humourous, it pumps on and changes with different events every 3 minutes or so.
Arcade 4/5: Ok admittedly most people will be turned away from this by the 30 minutes of gameplay thing. Dont listen to this. Its about 30 mins to complete it once BUT it contains so much replay value, you'll want to keep on going to unlock all the hilarious costumes and fun weapons. Also the campaign expands as you keep playing with new routes and events.
Party mode 5/5: Ive only played the party mode once with 3 other mixed people. One was a casual gamer, one was a wii casual player and the other was a sony fanboy. But after playing through the party mode just once they all enjoyed it very much. And then theres the paradise mode which you can run around with water pistols and shoot bikini ladies. And the ninja mode where you can run around with ninja death stars and attack ninjas. So hilarious and great competitive fun for the highest score.
Wii zapper usage 5/5: The wii zapper needs a lot of preferences for it to work properly and comfortably. For example i myself hate reaching up to press the A button as it is uncomfortable. But Ghost squad uses 2 buttons. B and Z. And it adds to the realism of the game while being comfortable. And this is probably the best game for wii zapper compatibility.
Gestures 1/5: A major flaw of this game. Its just point and shoot. flick the gun to reload. Point and shoot. I wasnt expecting anything brilliant but something to make it feel more immersive. No gestures at all.
All in all a fun game with lots of repaly value and to unlock the highest ranks, all the weapons, costumes and new routes youll be spending hours and hours to complete. Well worth the buy.
