Only person I've heard say much about this around here was Spaceghost... how would you compare it to other dudes in corridor or dungeoncrawl type stuff? Beyond the theme (a definite draw), what's the mechanical twist/draw of this?

It's very mediocre in my opinion. It's very mundane and there's not much there mechanically to grab on to. Extremely simple and repetitive.

The ghosts don't even move and attack you unless you attack them and miss. Almost every scenario is run around the map and just close the gates by shooting them.

It's the theme above all. If you ever played the Ghostbusters video-game "Sanctum of Slime", it's kinda like that. Just throw in with your friends and chuck proton streams at things while quoting the movie. It's not earth-shattering, but it is fun.

Personally I like the simplicity of it. I think a lot of people were expecting this to be something akin to "Arkham Horror", and I don't think that's ever what the designers or publishers were going for.

I have a review that is about 75% done -- I think it might have more to add to the discussion, so I will probably finish it. The real key is to make sure that you get the Kickstarter Mass Hysteria version; the base game would have been better if it was released to 9 and 10 year olds in 1990.

In my limited plays so far the game seems fair. Not great. Not bad. It feels like one of those games you and your friends designed in a basement on sleepovers. And I don't say that as a negative, I firmly believe that there needs to be games of all levels and complexity.

It's fatal flaw is It feels like a mass market game packaged to look like a hobby game. It is too light for hobbyists and too expensive for mass market. It should have been edited to fit in a $30 or $35 box and peddled at Target or Walmart.

I was assuming it was just a tagline for all of his reviews/musings.
