This game is an under-appreciated gem. So unique that it compelled me to write my first ever review.
What I like most about the game is that it doesn't insult your intelligence. There's no excessive hand holding like in so many games these days. You'll have to figure out the puzzle yourself and there are *a lot* of creative solutions possible.
It's important to note however that this can also the biggest drawback of the game; you don't always know upfront how certain ghost powers behave on level objects or interact with other powers.
You'll have to replicate whatever the game-designers deemed logical. Fortunately most of it is; logical and creative at the same time. A combination in games that's hard to find even 10 years after this release.
As a true Ghost Master you'll have to get to know all the different powers and their effects/synergies and select the right ghost for the mission. As a new player, definitely use "recommended team" for the first couple (or all) missions or you might not have a certain required power to solve a piece of the puzzle.
+ Unique gameplay, unlikely to find anywhere else
+ Lots of Ghost Master knowledge/tricks to learn to keep your busy
+ Good replayability (different ghost teams, max score/time trials, etc..)
+ Very creative solutions
- Creative solutions not always as obvious
As long as you assume a high level of interactions possible, threat it as a puzzle game, and use your logic skills, you'll do great and love this one-of-a-kind gem.
