3.0 out of 5 stars More Than I Expected May 15, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is yet another recent licensed game that makes proper use of the source material. Any fan of the series should give it a look. Like the series, this game is not for kids, though I fail to see what really warrants the Mature rating. Now, I haven't been all the way through the game, but what I've experienced thus far is a little bit of blood splatter from bullet wounds. Unlike what I would expect from an M rated game, there are no over-the-top spigots of blood, no gore. Also, the blood fades quickly, and the bodies disappear soon after being shot as well. While the game makes no apology for killing, neither does it revel in the act. Besides, much of the enemy is robots and prosthetic bodies (read: full conversion Cyborgs).

That said, the level design is not very expansive, with only the occaisonal branch, and very few if any alternate routes through a level. The designers somehow manage to camouflage this, and end up with some rather cohesive and fun environments, though. I suppose it's because the fun here isn't from exploration. The fun of the environment is the beautifully rendered futuristic world true to the anime. I love the glows on the monitors, and in general the lighting in this game, while nowhere near as pivotal or complex as in Splinter Cell, is dramatic nonetheless. Outdoor environments draw the player out from the dark interiors into near-blinding light and alabaster concrete. It's really a stunning game to look at.

While we're on visuals, the animation in game is quite extraordinary as well. No "Enter the Matrix"--style climbing here (wow, that was one of the most hilariously bad animation jobs I've seen in recent gaming), only fluid running, flipping, jumping, and rolling.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile game if you're a fan of the anime January 9, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't get around to playing too many games, but I'm a big fan of the GITS movies, TV series, and (lest we forget what came first) the manga by Shirow Masamune. The premise of the game was intriguing enugh for me to pick it up, and I was not disappointed except for a few aspects of the game but I'll get to that momentarily.

In the game you switch playing the roles of Major Kusanagi and Bateau trying to piece clues together as to who's using mind-controlling micro-machines to stage a government coup. I won't ruin the plot for potential players, but I will say that, as is the usual with the GITS series and movies, it takes us through the same territory of man versus machine dominance and the different levels of conscienceness, etc. I applaud the game for this single nuance because it's not your usual overly-simplified Good vs. Evil plot.

There are a total of nine missions to be completed in order to finish the game, split into different stages accordingly, and about 2/3 of the game is played as Kusanagi, the rest is played as Bateau (though there is one stage where you get to pilot a tachikoma, an enjoyably mindless fun break from the rest of the game). As you will discover, the Major is lighter and more flexible than Bateau, so she spends more time jumping from rooftop to rooftop. Bateau, who is noticeably heavier, spends more time running and gunning, but he makes up for his immobility by getting the bigger guns to achieve his goals.

For more avid gamers than I, especially those who are in tune with the later Tomb Raider games and Prince of Persia games, gameplay here is probably nothing to write home about, which is where I feel the game falls short, literally.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Circa 2005

GOOD:

- Really balance gameplay (combat wise), controls feel solid and functional

- Hack enemies and control them for a short period of time (even use them to kill other enemies)

- Play as Major and Bato, every other level or so you alternate

- The Story feels true to the sprit of the Stand Alone Complex series

BAD:

- The Tachikoma level in this game is a little lame, plus maybe its just my imagination but I feel that the Tachikoma's voices are a little more irritating than usual in this game

- Some jumping puzzles sour experience

- You pretty much have to be a fan of the show it like this game, story wise at least

- Graphics may come off a little lacking when compared to more modern games

IF IT FITS YOUR TASTE:

- In game dialog and story can be considered boring and nonsensical to most, but then again it's the type of dialog and story that is present in the show, either you love it or hate it

- A story that is more geared for an adult audience and mature gamers, not in the sense that is overly violent or sexual but that the story is more political based, think of it like the show 24 but in Japan and also 200 years in the future

- In the game you only play as Major and Bato, this game never really fleshes out the other characters (gameplay wise), which is not bad (especially for those who like Major and Bato the best) but it might be considered short sighted

- Lots of run and gun gameplay which can appeal to many gamers

GAME ITS MOST ASSOCATED TOO:

- Brute Force

- Blood Rayne

- Gun Grave

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

- The story in
