Too expositiony

While this game had a unique and engaging mechanic, and was fun to play (when it let you actually play it), its non-stop interruptions with cut scenes, dialogue, and its own endless drive to be the quirkiest thing you will ever play killed it for me. Also, the game relies heavily on trial and error, and you have to do the same things over again, usually a few times, before you get it right, because none of the solutions in this game are terribly sensible.

If they had taken out probably half (that's 50%) of the dialogue and other exposition, this game would have worked, but just like Joss Whedon, it's in love with its own prose, and won't just shut up and let you enjoy it.

Personally, one of the best games I have ever played. Gameplay is intense, Storyline is perfect, and the characters are unforgettable. I recommend this game to anyone and everyone.

Quite Possibly the Best Game on the DS!

Ghost Trick is a welcome surprise. Out of nowhere Capcom gives us what may well be the finest game on the DS. The premise is refreshingly original- you are a recently murdered soul out on a mission to find out who killed you. It branches off from there and introduces a bevy of lovable characters and an excellent plot to go along with them.

To say more is to spoil it. Just know that you're in for outstanding music, great animation (a certain dancing inspector comes to mind,) ingenious puzzles and a hilarious and beautifully poignant story. If you have a DS or 3DS, do yourself a favor and give this gem a shot.
