I can easily say, hands down this is a must buy for VR. It was a fun adventure, right up there with other instant classics such as Moss and Beat Sabre.

Ghost Giant is a must-own PSVR title, there are no two ways about it – if you own a PSVR headset, you need this game. Zonik Games have truly modernised storytelling as they not only bring interactive storytelling into the 21st century, they go even further and perfectly recreate the sense of awe and excitement through the means of Virtual Reality. Gamers, both old and young, will instantly fall in love with the beautiful art design, the awesome voice acting, the enchanting music, and the clever puzzles shoved into their eyeballs as each scene lights up for the first time. The story is also held together with the perfect pace and a very good narrative which everyone can enjoy.

For Zoink’s first foray into the VR space, they’ve done on incredible job. Ghost Giant is one of those unique must-play VR experiences that effectively demonstrates just what VR can do that traditional screens can’t.

Ghost Giant belongs in the conversation for the very best PSVR game. Its utterly phenomenal series of scenes will live long in the memory, complemented by a narrative that demands immediate investment. Louis is a wonderful companion, too – a relatable character who you'll quickly learn to care for. Outstanding presentation that rewards exploration is the cherry on top of a title we won't be forgetting about any time soon. If you own one of Sony's headsets, you absolutely cannot miss out on this special experience.

Ghost Giant is hard to talk about without spoiling too much of the story or gameplay, but I can say unequivocally that it is magical. It takes great advantage of the VR platform too, with the only real issue being that not everyone has a VR to experience it. This might be my new favourite Zoink game.

Ghost Giant may look like something you've played in VR before, but has the character and emotional depth to invoke very real feelings.

An interesting narrative adventure closer to some point'n click games than to any other game. It's cute graphics and character are what make this game special, despite some minor technical flaws and the feeling that we wanted to have a little bit more of everything on Ghost Giant.

Ghost Giant isn't revolutionary. It feels like a VR advancement of a classic PC point-and-click adventure game, albeit one with a great look, phenomenal sound design, and a story I'm not ashamed to admit had me choking up a bit toward the end. You won't be blown away by the immersion here, but it's fun to interact with the dollhouse-like sets and just sort of goof around. Like a lot of VR titles, Ghost Giant is a shorter experience, but it's a solid one that tells a charming story in a vibrant and colorful world.

This VR title boasts an endearingly goofy premise, but it's one that's executed in bumpy fashion.
