Am I the only one who found them to be a nuisance? Granted while playing it with a friend I squeal dramatically when they're absolutely everywhere but I've never really been a fan of them. Like oh darn now I have to step slightly to the left.Its definitely my least favorite part about the game.

You're not alone. A lot of people find them to be more annoying than scary.

Graphically it's great seeing them hovering in the corridors in the apartment (The one with the hat) and that gives you time to run. It does cut down on the exploration of the things with them groaning and coming at you.

It would have been better if they used them sparingly.

On paper they're terrifying, but in game they became annoying and were overpowered. I mean come on, the gruesome spirits of a serial killer's victims attacking you? That's brilliant! I loved how they were all individual people with their own designs.

You're certainly not alone.

Like Otherworld said, if they'd used them more sparingly, they'd be quite effective. As it is, they get to be just about everywhere, and it's more of a pain in the ass than anything.

Ya, they did a good job at adding an unsettling tone to the game in the beginning, but that gets tossed out the window as they become, as you said, a big pain in the ass...

Creepy, yes. Annoying, definitely.

I don't find them particularly damaging and sometimes just feel more in the way than scary. Especially in the building world.

The 'boss' ghosts in the second half are pretty freaky but seem to have a random amount of health before you can pin them down. They're not really hard just again, annoying.

As others said, would have been more effective if they used them less. Overall I like them though.

^Yeah, I think it was a good idea, it wasn't implemented as well as it could have been.

I agree...they was annoying and I believe it was a must to pin the "boss ghosts" as well....
Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding....these are the basic fundamentals of life....

If you can't amaze them with brilliance, baffle them with bulls**t...
