Geist works from an interesting premise: in it, you play through most of the game as a dispossessed spirit, locked out of your body and forced to inhabit the bodies of other people, as well as animals and more than a few inanimate objects to achieve your goals. It seems that you've been disembodied by one Alexander Volks, who intends to brainwash your (brainless) spirit form to become a Spectral Operations soldier for him, which would essentially make you a nearly unkillable assassin and sleeper agent. Unfortunately for Alexander, the ghost of his dear, departed sister Gigi quickly frees you from your brainwashing chamber, allowing you to start exploring Volks' facility in an attempt to disrupt his plans and eventually recover your body.
While the game has plenty of first-person shooting action, there's also plenty of puzzle solving, as you'll have to figure out precisely how to use the environment to scare individuals enough to take over their bodies. Once you're inside a body, however, you'll also need to find out precisely how to use their particular skills and abilities to further your goals. In GameSpot's Game Guide to Geist, we'll give you a complete walkthrough for the title, including solutions to all of these important puzzles, as well as strategies and videos for all of the major boss fights. Enjoy!
