What Gamespot Users have to say about Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

  • User Rating 9.5

    A game unlike anything else I've played. A brilliant story backed by solid gameplay; great characters, art music, sound.

    A must-play game. The official Gamespot review sings its praises well enough, so I'll just add my two cents to that: Sometimes the gameplay has a bit of trial-and-error, but the characters will oft...

    A prime example of a game that only serves to tell you how an amazing story can truly drive a game.

    Rated on August 13, 2012 by abHS4L88

    Ghost Trick Phantom Detective is quite an oddity. For a gameplay perspective, it does not look that amazing, but if you love a good story, give this game a chance, the moment you start playing, the st...

    A great story presented w/ style in spades.

    Rated on April 03, 2013 by logicalfrank

    Getting killed is the first thing that happens to you in Ghost Story. It gets stranger from there--but only after a brief conversation w/ a desk lamp, of course. It is deep melodrama involving murder,...

    Best story gaming has told me !

    Rated on May 16, 2013 by shadow131990

    A game where you take the role of a ghost that can move between objects and make them move. Time your actions right and in the right order and you are gonna progress. That's just the surface, beneath ...

    Ghost Trick is a well conceived and creative puzzle game, using chain reactions in a unique and satisfying way.

    Rated on January 15, 2011 by mattsn22

    After the highly inventive 9 hours, 9 persons, 9 doors, the DS gets another creative puzzle-game. Its whole new concept is very likely a game that you've never seen or played before. While Ghost Trick...

    The dead have some unique, innovative tricks up their sleeves.

    Rated on March 24, 2013 by bladex8

    Ok, bad jokes aside. Ghost Trick is one of the best puzzle games DS I've ever played. It's clever, original, funny and has a great story. Where have I seen that before? Oh right, the same guy who crea...

    An ambitious departure, with a great story to tell.

    Rated on January 17, 2011 by codezer0

    Had a chance to play this game under recommendation, and in short, Ghost Trick seems to have a lot of the same charm and wit of the earlier Phoenix Wright games. Stands to reason, given who is involve...

    When your dead you're dead right?

    Rated on January 17, 2011 by xDanny123x

    Just when I thought games now and days aren't any good anymore I checked up Ghost Trick because Capcom made the game and the creators of Phoenix Wright as well and I LOVED Phoenix Wright but this one ...

    Ghost Trick's interesting premise and gameplay make for a fun, unusual and intriguing adventure.

    Rated on January 21, 2011 by c_rakestraw

    If there's one thing the team behind the Ace Attorney series is good at, it's creating odd, endearing casts of characters and intriguing stories. Gameplay has always remained simple and largely passiv...

    From beginning to end, Ghost Trick is one wild ride.

    Rated on January 20, 2011 by NinTendonitis

    Those familiar with the Ace Attorney series will feel right at home in Ghost Trick's crazy plot twists and complex story, but this is NOT an Ace Attorney game. This game is something much different, a...
