    Overview

    Ghost Squad is an On Rails Shooter where the player takes control of an United Nations, anti-terrorist team called The Ghost Squad; (Global Humanitarian Operation and Special Tactics) in a mission to take down the terrorist group known as The Indigo Wolves, which are taking important political figures hostage, and to ultimately keep the peace. Ghost Squad was released for the arcade in 2004 and later ported to the Wii in 2007.

    Gameplay

    Ghost Squad is particularly known for it's interactivity with the player - it is one of the first arcade shooters to have interactive fight scenes and a variety of routes to choose in each level, much like in House Of The Dead, another Sega developed shooter. In Arcades, users of Ghost Squad could even buy a data card to store their own personal levels, high scores and allowed them to continue beyond level one difficulty in missions. It also allowed them to upgrade their squad member with new guns etc. All of these are included in the Wii port of Ghost Squad. The Wii version also included online leaderboards and two new submodes called "Ninja Mode", in which the squad member dressed up in a, like suggested ninja costume and "Paradise Mode", in which the enemies you face will be turned into bikini wearing women, or laughaly men. A variety of extra traning options were also included in the Wii port, such as target practising and real life exercises.
