When you fire up Rare Replay and take a look at this game in motion, you might think it is running on the Xbox 360. But that is not the case. Grabbed By The Ghoulies is actually an original Xbox title that has stood the test of visual time, so to speak. The cell shaded art style still looks great today. It is a fun, lighthearted “survival horror” game in which you must escape a haunted mansion and find your girlfriend. Yeah, I know, the most generic sounding story ever right? But fortunately the game is fun so who cares. Controls are decent, and combat is actually not done with the buttons but rather with one of the sticks. This takes some getting used to, but I got the hang of it. The one thing that I don’t like is all the long load times. These are cleverly hidden with comic book style story moments, but they are noticeable none the less once you realize they are there to help distract you from the time its taking to load. Grabbed By The Ghoulies is a fun game that I will be coming back to play more of in the future. See you all on the Flip-Side!
