Retro Gaming Nights: Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective - A Hauntingly Good Adventure

When GameOPS first launched Retro Gaming Nights, we focused on classic games from the Atari 2600 to the 16-bit era. It's hard to believe that a game from the Nintendo DS, which was once considered modern, is now considered retro. Nevertheless, it has been 13 years since this game's release, so let's dive into our review.

If you're looking for a game that will keep you entertained from start to finish, look no further than Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. Created by the mastermind behind the Ace Attorney series, Shu Takumi, this point-and-click adventure for the Nintendo DS is a tantalizing endeavor that proves to be one of his best production.

In Ghost Trick, you play the role of Sissel, a ghost who has been separated from his body after becoming a murder victim. With no memory of who he is or what has happened, Sissel must embark on a quest to rediscover his identity with the aid of the people he befriends, including a suspicious talking lamp called Ray. The gameplay involves accessing the ghost world, where every object has a core that can be latched onto with a move of the stylus, and phone lines are the only way to access another location. You can also interact with those who have died so you can discover how they met an untimely end and then 'rewind' to four minutes before that person's demise in order to prevent it.

What makes Ghost Trick such a delight to play is that the storyline and puzzles are intricately woven together. The script is expertly written, not only by expressing the trademark hilarity that the author of the Ace Attorney games is renowned for, but by managing to guide you on your way to the next puzzle. With around fifteen hours of gameplay that keep you compelled to play until the end in combination with a storyline that continues to surprise, Ghost Trick may be crammed full of tricks but is most definitely an absolute treat.

The Nintendo Switch now offers a remastered version of Ghost Trick for players to enjoy.
