Sooo much polish

Starting from classic adventure gaming conventions, Ghost Trick innovates by providing refreshing puzzle mechanics as you 'incarnate' (so to speak) a spirit interacting with the game world by doing small jumps between nearby objects (lamp, guitar, bicycle and whatnot) and 'playing tricks' using these objects (e.g make the bicycle shake or pedal).
Another exciting aspect is that you turn back time, first you discover how a character died, next you have 3 minutes to figure a way to avert their fate.
If you're dead set on classic point and click adventures the puzzly mechanics may throw you off, on the other hand if you're looking for something more fresh I am confident that you will like it.
The iOS conversion is *flawless* and it is a very, very polished game with beautiful animations, humorous characters and a compelling story.
(Once you get beyond the free chapters) the price is unusual for an iOS game but it's really a cut above compared to your typical well-produced iPhone adventure, so I don't think this should hold you back.
