GHOST TRICK: PHAN­TOM DE­TEC­TIVE (PG) AN­GRY BIRDS (G)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Games -

DS, $59.95

★★★★ The open­ing scene in this game sees the player’s char­ac­ter ly­ing dead on the ground. Who was he? Why was he mur­dered? As play­ers un­ravel the mys­tery be­fore them, they’ll come across a won­der­fully pre­sented game with a zany sto­ry­line and off­beat char­ac­ters. The game­play is clever too. An­other hit from the team be­hind Phoenix Wright. Out now.

PlayS­ta­tion Mini, $4.99

★★★ An­gry Birds was a colos­sal hit on iPhone, so it makes sense for it to spread its wings. The film is a lit­tle way off (no, re­ally), but the game has now come to the PlayS­ta­tion Mini ser­vice. This PSP adap­ta­tion works well, with the same ad­dic­tive game­play: fling birds from a cat­a­pult to blow down the houses and kill the ne­far­i­ous pigs. That said, it’s hard not to be dis­ap­pointed by the av­er­age graph­ics and in­con­sis­tent frame rate. Out now.
