This is about the Game,not the series (VG=videogame remember)
This game is based on the anime "Ghost in the Shell - Stand alone complex"! What I understand from other reviews concerning this anime that it has little to do with "Ghost in the shell" the movie! And takes a more conventional approach! The same can be said for the game! It is basically a third person shooter with some hand to hand combat! You can play as "the major" and "Batou"! The animation is done wonderful! The special effects used are also top notch! For example if you use kicks the animation slows down (matrix style)! Playing the game gives you the feeling of actually being in the anime! It is easy to control the characters! However sometimes there are really annoying platform puzzles where you have to jump in a certain way! With a little patience you will get through! The game has the same style as "ONI" but with much better graphics! Overall the game is easy and frankly too short! The story was quite interesting,but not special enough! The game is fun,but could have been much better! I think this game is meant for the fans of the series! I liked it!
