By Lisa Shea HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 30, 2003
In Ghost Master, you get to control a group of ghosts and try to frighten out sorority sisters, rescue trapped ghosts and much more!
We bought this on the recommendation of a friend, and I have to admit that the idea was an amazingly neat one. It is very much like Dungeon Keeper but with ghosts. You get a well detailed house to work with, with multiple rooms and multiple floors.
The graphics are great, and you can move easily between the floors, examining the items in each room, zooming in and out, turning around.
You attach each of your ghosts to an item in the house and give them a set of instructions. Some ghosts create spiders, other shake objects, others cause electrical items to go haywire. Each level has its own objectives - scare out all the humans, help a ghost go free, lure police to a certain area to discover a corpse. It's a riddle to figure out which best combination of ghosts and ghouls will achieve your objectives.
The spooky music is neat, the way the well-designed characters move around is quite neat. You can follow a given person around and learn about their fears, you can watch as they become more and more terrified. It's sort of like the Sims meets the Amityville Horror.
However, we encountered a BIG downside that we simply could not resolve. Despite having a rather high end system that plays all other current games without any issue, we hit problems with both the video and sound on this one. The video was only randomly annoying, with the beds turning into tie-die neons swirls, for example. We could live with that. But the sound was INCREDIBLY annoying with constant stuttering and loud machine-gun-like noises. We tried many different solutions to fix this but the issue remained.

I just started playing this game recently - I bought it because the idea seemed so unique and fun compared to most other games I've been playing lately!
Some other people have mentioned bugs, but I have yet to have a problem with the game. It installed clean and has played extremely well.
The basic idea of the game is that you are "master" to a group of ghosts and other ethereal monsters. You take your spooks to a house and use all sorts of neato powers to scare the people living in the house. Also in the houses there are usually restless spirits that you can rescue and they will become part of your team!
The graphics are pretty cool and the "scares" are great! I love watching my spook make items fly around the room and scare the mortals. Your spooks get all sorts of powers, from poltergeist stuff (items flying around) to making storms outside to causing tremors to more violent stuff like ripping their own head in half and making blood spurt out. Because of that, the game might not be appropriate for young kids!
I highly recommend the game - I've had a great time playing it and it's refreshing to play something really different once in awhile. :)

Ghost Master is an excellent game where you build up a team of ghosts to scare humans away from their locations!
You must perform your hauntings in a variety of locations including a large spooky house, a hospital/lunatic asylum, a boat (where humans will have to jump overboard!) and many more.
The game is separated in to missions.
There are just under 50 haunters in total, ranging from regular spooks to witches, and gremlins to swarms of spiders!
There are so many good things about Ghost Master. The graphics are excellent - each location is totally 3D and you can zoom in and out and rotate 360 degrees to see it from all angles.
The detail is also really good. Each mission is based loosly on a horror movie, and each character has a name from that movie.
You can find out about how each ghost died, and you can read bios for each character so you know how to scare them best!
If you're in to ghosts and horror movies, or you want a fun game for all ages, buy Ghost Master!

Ghostmaster is one of the most fun games to come along for quite awhile. The idea is fantastic - and the 3 years they spent implementing it was well spent. The basic premise is this: You have been promoted to Ghost Master, and have been sent by the counsel to descend upon the town of Gravenville and complete a series of missions to aid the glory of the dead or something. You start with a small selection of different sorts of spirits (elementals, sprites, poltergeists etc) with some powers - but with each mission you can complete "quests" and more ghosts will be under your command. Whenever you complete missions, you get scored on how much you scared people, how many spirits you rescued, the time used etc. This goes on the high score table - from which you can revisit past missions and beat your scores and times. As you can imagine, this gives the game TREMENDOUS replay value.
The points you earnb (not quite sure of the system) in turn gives you PLASMA, the only source of energy in the game. Plasma allows you to use different powers within the mortal realm, and also allows you to train your ghosts to learn new powers in the spirit realm. In attempting to pin down the genre of this game, I came to the following conlusions: It is similar to THE SIMS with the way the people talk, look, and the meter bars used to measure the three key aspects of a mortal: belief, terror, and madness. Different powers will raise different things. But it alsot involves deep strategy more often found in RTS type games. It has roleplaying akin to the final fantasy skill system in the way you distribute plasma to advance your ghosts and the manner in which they become better trained the more you use them.
