    Starts of like a great game. Ends up like crap.

    Outstanding

    It's like 1985 and Ghostbusters all over again. In this darkly comic adventure, a cocky young guy with an unlikely name (Lazarus Jones beats Peter Vinkmann any day) explores strange places, captures ghosts in a wacky dev... Read Full Review

    Great game despite shortness. Should definitely be bought when price drops! : )

    I recently got to sit down and actually play this game rather than looking at trailers about it. I must say that it is a really worthwhile game to be played by anybody, even if just for a rental. The game's story line an... Read Full Review

    Sad to say, even though it was bought as a budget title, it didn't live up to any real standard.

    Great graphics, decent story, and good voice acting couldn't save this game from mediocrity. At first, I kinda liked the idea of Ghostbusters meets...well....just about every action movie ever. It had an interesting st... Read Full Review

    Best horror game I've played so far.

    Ghosthunter should be one of Namco's best horror games to date. This game is similar to Capcom's Resident Evil only it is T-rated and there is no gore. The game has very good sound effects, music and gameplay. The game ... Read Full Review

    So many good points yet so flawed

    When I first played the demo of this game I loved it; the combat was great and it looked stunning, now after having bought this game over a year ago (I got it when it was originally released in Europe) I still love it, j... Read Full Review

    Capturing ghosts is your mission, in order to rescue your partner and discover the mystery of the abandoned school.

    Ghosthunter is the latest foray into the horror genre, using one of the best graphical engines that I’ve seen in some time. The game is centered on rookie homicide detective Lazarus Jones, who is called out to a disturba... Read Full Review

    Fantastic Visuals! If you love horror type games, don't miss this one!

    I went into this game thinking it was going to be another Resident Evil clone. I couldn't have been more wrong. This game puts the RE series in it's place, by giving us survival horror freaks what we want... suspense, ... Read Full Review
