Maxi Consolas (Portugal)Sega had the obligation to work harder on this conversion, at least with new levels for the game, since the three maps aren’t event connected between them. Being as it is, Ghost Squad is a mere conversion, feeling incomplete in form and substance. [March 2008]

Also keep in mind that it's an arcade-style rail shooter. It has some replay value because there are different routes you can take. You unlock new routes and guns by playing over and over again. There's supposedly a bikini mode that you unlock by maxing out your weapon levels to level 99 or something, but nobody should ever want to play this game for that long. My brother was obsessed with this game but even he couldn't bring himself to get even halfway there.
But this game is fun to make fun of. I have a lot of inside jokes with my brother about this game.… Full Review »

DespiteA faithful console port of a good arcade game, Ghost Squad is an enjoyable way to spend some time either single player or multiplayer. Despite being a rail shooter, Ghost Squad breaks the typical mold in a few ways. First, there are several rails, and the game gives the player the choice. At key points in each mission, the player is able to choose which direction or strategy to take, and the choice does affect the game. With the Wii version, as you complete more playthroughs, you will unlock additional decision points and/or options for existing decision gates. The other way in which Ghost Squad differs from the usual rail shooter is the existence of multiple pseudo-minigames, such as disabling mines or disarming bombs. The variety of missions available keeps the game from getting boring, and the various training and competition modes available, combined with co-op multiplayer for the main game, mean that there are tons of fun to be had with friends. The only negative mark for the game is that the missions replay exactly -- enemies always appear in the same places and attack in the same patterns. With enough repetition, these patterns will be learned and reduce some of the fun of the game. Even considering that weakness, though, Ghost Squad is definitely worth the purchase, particularly as it is now generally bargain-bin material.… Full Review »
