Images of Ghost Squad

Images of Ghost Squad

It is too stupid for words as SEGA well knows it with this latest batch of images from their shooting game Ghost Squad, a Nintendo Wii exclusivity. A weapon shaped as a dolphin, deadly bikini beauties, samurais, a character with a heart-shaped eye patch, it's like bad fiction. However, it's real and will use the Wii Zapper peripheral. The game can be completed alone or with the help of up to four friends. You can unlock a total of 25 weapons. The game will be available this November.

This has to be some stupid joke-mode of the game or something. Right? :P

These are not from the normal gameplay, my guess is they are unlockables and if Im right they are funny as hell :D

Reminds me of Oneechanbara. I think I'll be picking this up once I get a Wii!

really really stupid for them to release images like this. Not just because they're stupid, but some people might find the images of the game and think that this IS the game (which means less sales). You don't see Bungie releasing images of Grunts in bikinis for Halo 3.

Because there is no cheat for bikinis in H3

It seems like most Wii games have ultra simple game mechanics. I assume this is an on-rail shooting gallery game. For $50, a game needs to be more than a novelty, IMO.

Funny thing is that I've played in it in arcade this weekend and spent approx $10 (in rubles) - couldn't stop playing. This one is pretty ugly but suprisingly addictive.

Hey, I played this game a week ago, in the ARCADES! Man, Sega sure loves to port their arcade games...
Commented on 2007-09-24 21:38:53
Yeah, Ghost Squad rocks in the arcades, and it'll make a great addition to my Wii library.

I think it's very encouraging to know that Sega are showing the Wii some arcade port love, as Virtua Striker 3 was the only one that went on the cube and... wasn't... terribly hot.

They'd have to mess this up PRETTY bad to ruin an inherently great shooter though - to a point I don't think is even possible.

OMG! Looks like virtua cop on the Playstation 1 !

About the game

What's up?
  • Doom_Bringer
    Doom_Bringer just bought bf1 today busy with school but a round or two wont hurt (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yeah it's a pretty good game "if you don't think about it" :D (37 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX BF1 doesn't even have real squad incentives thanks to the relaxed CASUAL scoring system. If you want squad points you can just give and follow your own orders. (37 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @aphex187: You probably haven't even played all of the maps in BF4 and yet you're an expert on which game has better maps. As verified by your friends list because that means anything. (38 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Btw, its only a game so there's no need to get worked up over something as trivial as that man. (44 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 diverse bunch. But yeah, BF1 is such a better game and IMO feels better when playing as a squad than what BF4 set out to do. *my opinion (50 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Like i said, BF4 bored me and that's why i couldn't care less what snipers had. I don't know anybody that liked that game or even sinked a whole lot of hours into it and the guys i play with are a fkn (52 minutes ago)
