Now that we know that Ghost in the Shell Online will definitely be coming to Western shores, there’s all the reason in the world to be very curious about how it’s going to play. The fine people at Steparu took the game’s first Korean beta test for a spin to see how it holds up.
The verdict? It’s an FPS. It does what it says on the tin. There are a handful of mildly neat systems with some bracingly overpowered skills, and there’s some fun stuff to be done with the tachikoma, but at the end of the day it’s a pretty standard FPS. Of course, fans of the series can take heart that it’s also not doing anything wrong. You can check out the full review; the video walkthrough of the tutorial mission is below.
