    This game is not what Ghost Rider fans are looking for in an action title. The combat is repetitive and clunky, the driving is horrid, and the plot is completely useless.
  2. While it does steal from some truly spectacular action games, somehow the action really doesn’t take off in this repetitive, bland action game. Even if you’re a fan of the comic, do yourself a favor and stay away from this one.

    Overall, when stacked next to its PS2 counterpart, the PSP version of Ghost Rider is on very weak legs.
  4. Metaphorically, it's like buying a CD only to find out it has one decent song on it.
  5. Ghost Rider steals liberally from several major action games, yet somehow avoids stealing the parts that made those games fun.
  6. An inexcusably repetitive, soulless experience.
  7. Ghost Rider is a game that aspires to be mediocre, but comes up several leagues short. [Apr 2007, p.57]
  8. The game also settles into a rut: Clear an area of demons, advance, clear a room of demons, repeat. There's little strategy.

    Damn, this game really isnt as bad as the "critics" say it is. It's actually pretty decent. What i like about it is that it takes placeDamn, this game really isnt as bad as the "critics" say it is. It's actually pretty decent. What i like about it is that it takes place after the movie so theres no going over or playing something that you already saw or know in the movie (that is, if you saw the movie). The combat pretty much rips God of War and while obviously its not as robust as God of War, it is good. Not terrible, not great, but good. Graphics are decent, if not a little too dark, and the music is pretty good (mostly rock tunes which suits the game). My only complaints would be the lack in variety of enemies (there really isnt that much) and that the levels arent really levels, there more like arenas (move a little and fire walls ignite surrounding you and your enemies. Beat them move a little more and same thing happens) Lather, rinse, repeat. Overall, Ghost Rider is a decent time waster. Full Review »

    This game is amazing. I've been a fan of Ghost Rider for years, this game captures the capture perfectly.
