Geist is modern supernatural mystery. You play a Spectral Operative - a special agent who can become a ghost. Travel the hallways, labs and chambers of a shadowy compound, searching for your body, as it's mysteriously being kept alive by people with an agenda you must unravel.
From the Manufacturer
In the hallways, labs, and chambers of a shadowy compound, an unseen power is lurking... As a ghostly Spectral Operative, players must search for their physical body, which is mysteriously being kept alive somewhere in the enormous complex. Players won't always be alone though--as they explore, they must collect the energies of indigenous spirits to help unravel a mystery and build their own power. Some will help, but beware, for not all the spirits are friendly. Prepare for a first-person adventure with a spectral twist!
You are John Raimi, a disease-control agent with the federal government, on loan to an elite counterterrorism unit. Your team is sent to investigate the shadowy Volks Corporation. When the operation goes horribly wrong, you are captured and subjected to a ghastly experiment that rips your spirit from your physical body. You now roam the halls of the Volks Corporation compound as a spectral phantom, using your powers to scare and possess any human or animal that crosses your path.
If youre going to have any hope of finding your own body, you must employ your hair-raising power of possession to control humans, animals, and objects, using the unique abilities of each to explore the compound, solve puzzles, and strike at your enemies. Different characters react to the world from different perspectives: as an engineer, you may have access to restricted areas and computers, while as a mouse you may find yourself inexplicitly drawn to mouse traps baited with cheese.
As a ghost, you are invisible to humans and move so fast that everything around you appears in slow motion. While in this phantom form, you can effortlessly pass through chain-link fences or through small cracks in walls. Most importantly, you can possess everyday objects like lights, computers, and fire extinguishers and manipulate them to terrify nearby humans or animals. Once a living creature has been frightened, you can possess and control its body.
Along the way, you must discover the secret of the Volks Corporation to unravel the mystery of your condition and find a way to recover your human form.
- Explore the compound as a ghost, then possess more than a dozen unique character types using their weapons, equipment, skills, and even memories, to complete your goals.
- Possessions range from soldiers with guns to dog- and mouse-like creatures that can perform specialized physical tasks. Choose different characters and see the world in different ways.
- Travel through the human world virtually unseen, using your abilities to slip through cracks, interfere with electronics, move objects, and more.
- Face challenges from two unique angles--as a possessed human or a lurking spirit hunting its prey.
- Prepare for death matches with the dead in all-new multiplayer modes that combine first-person combat with unique ghost and possession mechanics.

There is both first person shooter action in this game and puzzle solving. You can possess people, animals, and inanimate objects. The whole possession capability is made into a puzzle solving strategy because in order to possess living things like a man, dog, or even a rat it has to be scared first. So for example, in order to possess the scientist you need to first possess the soda machine, shoot some cans out at him, possess the soda can and make it explode in his face, and then to really scare him make the water in the sink turn into blood. Some of these were funny but some were tedious.
Possession was also helpful in combat. For example, you could possess the explosive crate a enemy just happened to be standing next to and well you know.... Some of the boss fights utilized the possession capability very well making them interesting while others did not.
When you possess someone they each have a special capability. But there was nothing special about most of these capabilities. For example, the special capability for most chracters was that they could sprint. It would have been nice if say the doctor's special capability was that she could heal herself.The first person shooting capabilities were also annoying. Most soldiers can throw grenades but they can't crouch or jump!
There are parts in the game where you are in the brain washing chamber. You are being trained to be an operative who will possess hosts in order to carry out assasinations etc When I was playing the operative training levels I thought to myself "why isn't the whole game like this!"
The game's concept is original for the most part but when the strange creatures came pouring in through the whole to another dimension.....I thought I was playing Half-Life. Actually, the whole possession thing kinda made me think of the mind controlling in Second Sight...which was a rip off of Psi-Ops.....Anyway this game failed to live up to its potential.
Its a $20 game NOT A PENNY MORE, it probably won't take you long to beat it so do not spend alot of money on this game. But when you finish playing story mode you can play multiplayer modes. You unlock arenas for multiplayer by collecting host collectibles during story mode. If you really want to play something excellent then play Psi Ops.
I also enjoy the possession death match, which is a multiplayer shootout. Obviously the gamecube does not connect to the internet, so it can't be as exciting as shooting games on other consoles where you play against real people from all over the world, but if you have a gamecube (or wii), I'd recommend this game. Besides, it's so much cheaper than paying $60 for other console games!
