    The graphics are average, the puzzles are boring, and the game is just totally uninteresting. There are also lamer mags than EGM and the preview of Geist was pretty much the same as the final product. Oh, and before people get angry at me for giving Geist a 4/10, I have actually played through the game. Get Metroid Prime instead.

    This tongue-in-cheek attitude won't hamper the experience, mind you; it just serves to further distinguish Geist from the competition.

    I would love to be sitting here writing about how great this unique game is, but after creating such a cool concept the developers let the rest go and forgot to add the things that truly make a shooter great, like good AI, freedom of approach and a gripping story that progresses in interesting ways.

    If you are willing to forgive some of the niggles with the engine, then underneath lurks a program full of idea, invention, wit and life (although the motorcycle section seems somewhat out of place).
