The Good: Clever puzzles, decent graphics, and story
The Bad: Some frame rate stutters, weak gun play, multi player, no online play
I heard about this game years ago and while I didn’t have a GameCube at the time I couldn’t play it but it’s semi-mediocre reviews made me quickly forget. Now five years later I picked it up quite cheap at Game Crazy and it was a great game. You are a part of a special government unit to wipe out a project known as Z. While you’re team fails you get captured and used as a guinea pig for a crazy man who wants to create the ultimate ghost army. While a little girl named Gigi helps you along the way you need to find your body and help your comrade get out alive.
While you go through out this whole facility you can possess people by scaring them first, through possessing various objects, and using the people to get through certain areas. This puzzle solving element is fun, neat, and very different from other games. Through out the game you switch off from being a ghost to full-out fire fights. While these aren’t as interesting due to unlimited ammo and how weak it all feels it can be fun. The multi player isn’t much to brag about since it’s not online but it’s there if you want it. I highly suggest Geist to anyone who missed out on this under rated charm.
