Game Thoughts: Ghost Trick


Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is one of the first games to come out for the DS in 2011. You wake up dead and don't have a clue on what's going on. You start noticing you have the power to manipulate objects and decide you're going to figure out who you are, why you're dead, and how you died.

As the game carries on you find out you can help out the dead. By help the dead, I mean you're aloud to go back 4 minutes before their death, and prevent it. The game will show the 4 minutes, and then you must manipulate objects to save the dead. For Example: If someone died while eating a pie because someone planted poison in it, you can manipulate a rock sitting on a shelf to fall in the pie. This will ruin the pie, and the person won't eat the pie, saving their life. The first couple of cases are pretty simple, but it gets harder each time.

While you're figuring out your own business, you end up getting involved in the business of everyone you think can help you. People keep dying, and you keep saving them. Every time you save someone you get more information. You get to know everyone's life stories and how they all tie together with everyone, and yourself.

Final Say: This is a must play for DS owners. The ghost trick puzzles are really fun, and the story will keep you wanting more. The game is pretty much perfect. Sometimes the characters are way too hard to believe, but once you just let go of the real world and get into the video game world, then you'll be fine.
