The developer behind Ghost Master is clearly a fan of horror movies, and keen eyes will be able to pick out lots of movie inspired jokes and parodies in every aspect of the game, from the different scenario names to specific ghostly characters. Graphically the whole thing looks great, and a suitably spooky soundtrack accompanies the gameplay and makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. Only a few things are missing here – notably a multiplayer option. Being able to play with a friend who controlled a competing team of spooks would have been nice, or maybe even a team of ghost busters? And the game is also just crying out for a level editor, which would have greatly increased the longevity of the whole thing. That said, it’s still an incredibly entertaining title, and if you liked any of The Sims games, then you really don’t want to miss this one!

We love Ghost Master for what it is, a light-hearted Amityville twist on the classic Sims game. It's funny and visually creative—great for gamers looking for a laugh rather than an adrenaline rush.

Ghost Master marries a unique concept with great execution. It's marred only by a few flaws in level design that make some parts of the game more frustrating than they should be. Overall, though, it's a great game -- especially for fans of horror movies.

In the end, Ghost Master is a game that, like the Sims, isn't a game to be enjoyed by scoring points or achieving goals. It's about the fun of scaring people out of their wits without really harming them. Strangely, this makes a game about raising and controlling the undead a lot less twisted than the Sims.

Ghost Master is a game that tries to get by on its premise alone, and it succeeds, despite a few minor flaws. It’s unusual and a nice break from the average sim game. It’s an amusing game that’s easy to get pulled into, and it doesn’t demand too much of the player. It’s just fun. The easiest way to sum it up is to say: If you like the premise, you’ll almost certainly like the game.

On appréciera bien sa convivialité, son originalité, sa diversité, et parfois même sa difficulté lorsqu'il s'agira de faire peur à nos aïeux, qui rappelons-le ne sont pas toujours de bonne humeur. Mais Ghost Master c'est aussi une atmosphère terrifiante à vous en lécher les babines dès que vous avez ouvert la boîte du jeu... Et vous, êtes-vous tombés raides, morts de peur ?
