I bought Ghosthunter because I really enjoyed Primal (from the same developers - at the end of Primal there is a great Ghosthunter 'coming soon' clip) and the reviews I read were of the 'bordering on excellent' variety.
I was a little disappointed; yes the game was creative - some set pieces reek of originality, especially in the swamps, but the dialogue jars in a way that the Primal script does not and worst of all, the game overall has a rushed-through, 'unfinished' feel to it. It's a shame that the high production values (Sir Michael Gambon voicing the villain, characters with convincing facial expressions, some of the best graphics I personally have ever seen) are let down by a totally unsatisfying ending.
All in all, it was enjoyable playing this game but the ending... I spent £39.99 on this, and my advice is this - buy it but wait till it's cut price (which, judging by the fact that it charted as the 280th best-selling game in 2003, will not be long!).
Buy Primal instead!
