Ghost Rider roars off the comic book page and onto PlayStation 2 as an action game that combines fiery combat and frenzied driving. Players slip into the black leather jacket of Johnny Blaze, a former stuntman whose soul is now entwined with a demon, as they prepare to mete out justice using the character's signature hellfire chain and hellfire shotgun. Viewed from a third-person perspective set behind Ghost Rider, the game has players battling multiple foes at once using a combo-based fighting engine.
Driving sequences on Ghost Rider's skull-emblazoned Hell Cycle let players continue the carnage as they swing the chain at nearby enemies and zip across water, rocket over jumps, and more. As players advance deeper into the game, they will confront familiar villains from the comic book series and unlock an assortment of bonus features, including interviews, extra characters, artwork, and other surprises. Ghost Rider features locales from the 2007 film starring Nicholas Cage and a storyline penned by comic writers Garth Ennis and Jimmy Palmiotti. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
