GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Italian
I'm sure I wrote a review when it came out. However, this game is an adventure-style Japanese animation, from Japanese authors, themed supernatural investigative, endowed with excellent puzzles to solve to run the game, and a plot that reveals the truth of the past of the various characters to As it is revealed. Graphic and sound Look reflect the origin on Nintendo DS but with various improvements and tricks to make the use on iOS fluid and appealing. Since the first change of operating system, I think between iOS 7 and 8, the rendered useless, Capcom has transposed the large requests of customers and kept the app working for each subsequent revision of the platform. This is good because it is a game that is worth replaying.

This is clearly a game for people who really love a good story and plot, with special puzzles between each story sequence. I investigated all destinations as I could at all times, to get as much information about the good "sub-plots" as the game is going on. The Characters are some of the best written I have yet seen in an iOS game, so if you love a good story and at times K Replexed puzzle game, this game is perfect if you expect action, you will be badly disappointed. The only negative thing I could say about the game is that the characters are very Japanese caricatures and react very clearly, but if you are into such a thing, just like I am, this is probably one of the best games you can wish for on your iOS system. In Short, the best mobile game I have played for a long time.

I bought the Game a few Years ago and played through it. Now I wanted to play it again and should pay for it again because it is now divided into Chapters?! Hence 1 Star out of 5. Otherwise: One of my Favorite Games. The Story is incredibly thought out and lovingly spun through (ok ... Deductions for some Inconsistencies, but hey, this is about Time Travel, among others). The Design and Animations of the Characters are qualitative (thanks to Rotoscope Procedures), the Music not too annoying and corresponding to the Moods, the Characters versatile and not hackneyed. No Damsel in Distress! It's colorful, graphically not 3D, but no one in this Genre has ever needed that, in my Opinion. And for all People from 9-99 a good Purchase Decision! Unfortunately, there were Problems with Saving sometimes, I had to play a whole Chapter again; I don't know why. And sometimes it's a bit text-heavy. Even the Patience is sometimes really in demand ... But that did not Detract from my Joy!
