Maybe with some more survival horror elements, or something. This game feels really one-dimensional by modern standards. Kind of a flat set of mechanics. It might have been seen as a really clever game on the PS2. It might have even seemed deep, and intriguing back in the day, ya know?
The game is presented nice enough, but it feels like a game that's ten years old, and has been "remastered" for the current generation. I suppose you could find this super enjoyable if you were looking to play an old-school game that was really cutting edge for its time, on a brand new system.
I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. It certainly wasn't the best game I've ever played but it was short and just good enough to keep my interest till the end. I didn't hate the game play, and it was rather interesting to play as a ghost. The characters were extremely cheesy, and very one dimensional but for the length of the game I guess that's what you would expect. The graphics were decent and the town looked pretty neat but the whole bring parts of the past to blend with the modern day seemed a bit confusing. In buildings it didn't bother me as much but out in the streets it was hard to find your way around at some points.
I dealt with glitches through the whole game, through most of the game I got the objective of "Getting out of the attic" when I completed that objective chapters ago. The game kept freezing on me and at one point I had to completely redo a chapter and I had to restart the game because the chapter kept looping.
I think if you have some time to spare and nothing else to do this is one way to keep yourself entertained but your time however might be better spent on a different game.
