Ghost Hunters

Dum-dum-diddley-dum-dum-dum-dum - who you gonna call? Ghost Hunters! All right, maybe not. This game from those cheapo giants at Code Masters has you running around in a haunted mansion attempting to rescue your kidnapped brother. All manner of ghostly hazards are in your way, some of which can be zapped with your special weapon (oo-er) but leave them too long and your lifeforce drains away.

I can't say that I understand the Code Masters marketing philosophy. I mean, at £1.99 Ghost Hunters would have been remarkably average, but at £2.99 it's out of its range and the poor quality is compounded. The gameplay is pretty naff due to the frustratingly tricky control method, with the gun sight whizzing all over the shop.

Only one for dedicated Darling fans, I'm afraid.
