There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

I'm thinking about getting this game, but I might wait a while until it's not as brand new. Does anybody have any thoughts on the game yet?

I'm liking it so far, but then i'm a huge fan of the PW series, and this is very similar in terms of dialogue (though not so much plot and gameplay, of course). i'm in Chapter 3 now, will probably get in a little more play-time during lunch here at job#2 :3

I just checked out the very short demo version (it's available on the Ninty Channel for those who don't know), and i definitely like the style and gameplay. Will probably have to pick this up.

@theblackdragon: Are you going to be doing a review for this game? Not that I need convincing, I already have my copy on order from Amazon.

I haven't played the game for more than a couple of hours but I'm already certain that unless you HATE these type of logic-based games, YOU NEED TO BUY THIS. Like, right now.

I picked it up yesterday and started playing today. Up to Chapter 4. Awesome game; it's almost like a new twist on a point-n-click style game. Awesome art style and fun humor. And Missle the Pomeranian rules. =)

Beat the game yesterday. I really really liked it alot. I was a little let down by the fact that it just didn't hit me on the emotional level that Layton games and 999 managed to. I like games that really make me think about their story and the characters even several days after the game has come to a close. Still an extremely well crafted game though and I am so happy I decided to buy it!

Which reminds me, I'm still pissed about the Game Informer review of Ghost Trick, since the reviewer obviously doesn't care for point 'n' clicks, and I ended up getting nothing out of the review because he mainly focused on the "issues" that all P'n'Cs have. So it's not good for non-fans, that still doesn't tell me if its a good game or not.

I'm up into Chapter 8 so far. I kinda get what some of the critics are saying regarding the lack of genuine 'Eureka!' moments in this game, but then i've still got a ways to go in terms of figuring out everything that's going on. there might be something mind-blowing coming down the pipe for all i know. The gameplay is pretty ingenious, it's the trial-and-error that makes things interesting, and there are actually times where it's better to take the obviously wrong path in order to learn more about what's going on at a given point in time.

in some ways it's much more laid-back than the PW series, and in others -- obviously the timed aspect of the lifesaving puzzle sequences -- it isn't. the fact that you can keep rewinding time as much as you need to in order to get through a puzzle helps, though. i'm greatly enjoying the familiar feel of the conversations, the style of dialogue and such (internal thoughts being paranthetical and in blue, important words in orange, brief flashes before revelations or quick 'aha' moments, etc. and so forth), and there is definitely that same feel to the humor behind everything. Missile is the best, and I love love love those two security guards, lol... waiting for a stepladder reference someplace >:3

i have gotten a bit stuck in a couple places, but those were due to following dead ends or timing errors in puzzles that needed to be completed in exact sequence. the game will help you out by telling you when you've made a mistake you can't recover from so that you can go back to the beginning of the puzzle or, if you've altered the death scenario significantly, to one of the 'Fate Changed' checkpoints. the checkpoints do help to cut down the tediousness of restarting a puzzle over and over. haven't had to resort to using a guide yet, and for me that's a very good thing. :3

for now, i'm in love with this game. that may change the farther i get into it, who knows, but so far it's a breath of fresh air coming from a familiar place (because it's so similar to PW for me), if that makes any sense. i apologize, but i'm having a hard time describing it without referring to Phoenix Wright, which is bad for people who have no experience with that series... but my brain just keeps seeing similarities, hahaha.
