Cartoony Noir

+ Inventive and highly original interface. 
+ Amazing story with more interwoven plots than a Nolan film. Most of the characters are extremely detailed even some of the throw aways. You will become invested.
+ Slick animation and clean cartoon effect. 
+ Clever puzzles that are the right combination of experimentation and logic. 
- Limited replay value; Puzzles only have a single solution so replaying the story doesn't offer much apart from experiencing the magic a second time. 
- Some of the puzzles can be a little frustrating or not obvious. One ESPECIALLY. 
- Some of the timing based situations are a little unforgiving. 
= The only flaw is that you can only truly enjoy it once.

    It's hard to quantify what makes a game like Ghost Trick so endearing. Much like the Ace Attorney series before it, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective just has a kind of immeasurable charm that is difficult to accurately express through language alone. Perhaps it speaks solely to the strength of the writing, but if one thing is for certain it is that Shu Takumi has delivered once again on the concept of an enthralling virtual narrative.    It's hard to talk about Ghost Trick and not at least pay men...
