Ghost of a Tale is a triumph of storytelling. It's complex narrative and stunning character writing bump this mechanically successful game to the category of a hidden gem.

Ghost of a Tale is a game made with love and for lovers of beautiful things. The principles are quite generic (we look for keys, which open doors that unlock new possibilities...), but they are articulated with care and intelligence. If you like to think and play with elegance while having a good time, here is a title that should be played. Ghost of a tale is well worth it. Just to encourage the creation of other games of this caliber. The animators of the cinema get along well with video games !

Great debut for SeithCG. Stealth mechanic is far from being great, but stunning visuals and smart level design is what really involves you into the beautifully grim world of Ghost of a Tale.

Ghost of a Tale is one of the most unique action role-playing games released in recent times. Its highlights are the charming story and characters as well as the stealth-focused gameplay. Sadly, some technical issues do get in the way on PlayStation 4, preventing the game from reaching its full potential. However, if you're looking for a game that can make you think, look no further, as Ghost of a Tale tackles a handful of very important issues in a mature and very thoughtful way.

The wondrous Dwindling Heights is well designed and gives Tilo plenty of opportunities to use his mousey avoidance skills and disguises to help characters. Although there is occasionally too much backtracking, Ghost of a Tale holds a memorable journey in its tiny paws.

Ghost of a Tale is an interesting world full of lore that begs to be explored despite the few design choices that keep it from becoming the greatness that it has potential for.

It is unfortunate that a game with so many qualities provides a frustrating experience because of technical problems. Despite the limitations, Ghost of a Tale is good and can be much better after a few patches.

A gorgeous looking stealth with some rpg elements and too many mechanic semplifications. Worth a try, if you're searching something simple.
