    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.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective certainly qualifies: it’s a totally original IP that puts a unique spin on the adventure genre, which has sorely needed some innovative ideas.The player takes on the role of a ghost who’s spirit can interact with nearby objects, like a poltergeist playing tricks on unsuspecting victims. You’ll have to use whatever ...
