Ghostrunner reviews

Recommend at a discount, but for $30 this game doesn't offer quite enough content.

Ghostrunner is a trial-and-error cyber-ninja game that features similarities to other perfection seeking games like Super Meat Boy. Some of the platforming can be frustrating, especially the later wallrunning segments. The Ghostrunner doesn't always grab onto walls the way you expect. Visually striking, plus great visual clarity of enemies, projectiles, and interactive objects. The soundtrack is immersive, fitting, and perfect to zone out to, but ultimately forgettable. The game is only 6-8 hours long unless you get stuck. There's some replay value to be had in finding collectibles and improving your times, but it would have benefited from another few hours of slicing baddies up. I also frequently ran into bugs with my controls, where everything would become nonresponsive unless I restarted, losing a good chunk of progress.
It's a first person Hotline Miami.
