Ghost Trick is well worth the price of admission, but sadly the game lets itself down with its overall simplicity and the disappointment of its crucial final act.
If you passed on the opportunity the first time round, now is a great time to find out what you missed.
Pirates isn't quite as whiz-bang as LEGO Star Wars III and feels quite formulaic at times, but there's no denying it has charm and widespread appeal.
If you miss the classic 3D platformer and like games with a heavy dose of surrealism, you could do a lot worse than give Alice: Madness Returns a shot.
