Ghost Rider review

  • Driving levels break up monotony
  • Combo system gives depth to fighting
  • Fans will be delighted
  • Fighting is incredibly boring
  • Forgettable gameplay
  • God of War rip-off
Happily there is some respite from the fighting during the bike-riding levels. Again, there’s nothing ground-breaking going on here, but the mix of combat - shooting and hand-to-hand - and simple obstacles - jump over, slide under - is diverting enough. Of course it’s nowhere near enough to stop Ghost Rider from being another totally forgettable licensed-game experience. With awareness high thanks to the film’s release, the game just has to be playable and presentable on a basic level to make a few bucks. And that’s all it gives us. Disappointing.
