    Ghost squad is a FPS that has been ported from an arcade light gun machine, to the Wii, exclusivley.

    Interview with the developer

    Screens

    They say it will be coming to Euriope and America "holiday 2007" s im guessing he meant in the summer...

    As for the screenshots, they are looking kinda shabby. And they are quite recent ones too. Sort of, counter strike with some adjustments. Look at the bomb on the second page of the screens, thats poor even for gamecubes standards.

    Hopefully these will improve. Oh and did i mention? It will include online play, which should be fun.

    Does anyone have any other news on this game? Whats your views?

    I'm not too much into these rail shooters. It's TOOOOOOOO linear if you ask me. I wanna be free. I'm a birdah!

    you just made a total oxymoron
    if its out on wii and arcades, its not exclusive, if its being ported, its not exclusive.

    graphics probably wont improve, so dont count on it.

    and also, rail shooters and FPSs are kinda different, even though rail shooters like this are technically FPSs, in the gaming world, they arent considered FPSs.

    they are very different
    but exclusive means only available on 1 thing.

    Exclusivity in this case refers to the specific console that it is being ported to. This is why games such as Halo, or Halo 2, are Xbox exclusives, yet they have PC ports.

    once a game is ported it isnt exclusive anymore to anyone.

    Doesn't look that impressive imo. Plus I think RE: UC will outsell it.

    Is it a port? Or is it a sequel that heads to the Wii instead of an Arcademachine?

    Eh.... The only time I'd consider buying a Rail shooter for the Wii would be if

    (A) It has a unique tilt, like co-op or something. Imagine repelling into a building while shooting people, while your friend is outside sniping people and can cycle between 2 or 3 different snipers.

    (B) It is cheap, like RE 4. ($29.99)



    That's what I'm doing with RE:UC anyway, I'll wait until some disappointed gamer, (there'll be lots) finds out this is just a rail shooter, beats it, and sells it to EB Games. Then I'll pick it up for a good $25.

    "Rail Shooters" don't have to be bad games. Look at Time Crisis, it's awesome! What we do need though is a gun attachment to make it as good. Once we have that these games can really shine. Imagine Point Blank or something on the Wii too - wicked!

    It doesn't look that bad to me, online aspect hopefully will be decent.
    I'll check it out.

    I'd pick it up, but I enjoy a good rail shooter...many, many don't.

    what makes you think that? im willing to bet all my money it will be on rails.
    the online will probably be co-op (both your aimers on the screen at once) or if they wanted to go really far, at the most, itd be on-rail fighting where maybe you fight then constantly move to new locations and keep fighting

    its a port

    Four people at once shooting at things on screen?
    I can bet that it'd be competetive play. 'Cause that'd be overkill to the enemies!

    I read nothing about online play in that article.
    But I'm a bit clueless of how you can do online play, unless it's online co-op.

    Edit: This is all counting on if it'd be on rails, though.

    A Wii Play style package with the game and a simple plastic "gun" for the wiimote to fit in would be a decent deal for $50-60. Then I'd cop another gun for like $10.
