Sega's popular light-gun arcade game makes its Wii debut with four-player support and added content. As in the 2004 coin-op, a secretive Special Forces unit known as the Ghost Squad is sent by the United Nations to neutralize a terrorist threat. The Wii Remote is used to shoot down enemies, rescue hostages, and disarm explosives throughout three missions of play. Twenty-five weapons can be unlocked, ranging from pistols and shotguns to assault rifles and submachine guns. Hand-to-hand moves are also supported for close quarters combat.
Other terrorist-thwarting tools at your disposal include night vision, thermo vision, and when all else fails, a simple flashlight. While the console version still only features three missions, Ghost Squad on Wii offers new modes and features over the arcade game. Each mission, for example, offers multiple levels, alternate routes, day and night variants, secret costumes to unlock, and other surprises, allowing players to revisit stages for a new experience or challenge. Flexible control options allow solo soldiers to dual-wield Wii Remotes or up to four players to battle terrorists on the same screen. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
