Beautiful animation and superb level design,
This review is from: Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (DS) (Video Game)
I can't speak highly enough about this game.
I don't normally have the patience to persevere with adventure games, so it takes a good one to hold my attention, but this is one of the best DS games I've ever played.
Think of it as the reverse of the 'Final Destination' movies, in that you get to set up a chain of events that usually leads to saving lives rather than ending them. The lives you're saving belong the characters in the game who then aid you in your quest to discover the truth about your own death.
Some of these set-ups are jaw-droppingly clever, so it's probably not suitable for younger children (unless they're pretty smart).
The animation and characterisation is stunning too - it's like watching a very quirky (but accessible) Anime cartoon.
Still playing it at the moment and really don't want it to end. It'll have a treasured place in my collection once I do though..
