+ The premise puts you in the boots of a recently deceased amnesiac man (although there are many occasions where they comment that ghosts don't need boots), trying to solve his own murder and has you beating foes with timed wrecking balls and saving innocents from giant chicken dinners.
+ The characters, though sometimes slightly generic and overly dramatic (Mr. Justice Minister) all stand out as individuals that mesh together the story.
+ Animations are fluid and honestly beautiful.
+ The music fits the title well and hardly ever gets old.
+ The puzzles are well designed and flow naturally from start to finish.
- One particular puzzle, Chapter 9, is painful to attempt.
I'm just now about halfway through Chapter 10 as a result of 9's difficulty, but Ghost Trick is managing quite easily to be possibly one of my favourite titles on the DS.
P.S. Ghost Trick and Phoenix Wright were directed by the same guy. woot!
