"Ghost Rider" is a third person game based around the movie of the same name. The game's storyline is a sequel to the movie, and was penned by Marvel writers Garth Ennis and Jimmy Palmiotti. Players can play as Ghost Rider both on foot, or on the Hellcycle. The villains are both from the movie and the comic. Such villains are Scarecrow, Lilith, Blackout, Vengeance and Blackheart and for the GBA Mephisto.

Gameplay

The game features a system reminiscent to that of "God of War", even having some of the same controls and style of attacks [cite web |url=http://kotaku.com/gaming/ghost-rider/ghost-rider-ps2-impressions-236886.php |title=Ghost Rider PS2 Impressions |accessdate=2007-02-28 |format= |work= ] . Combos are done with bare hands and with the Demonic chain. The overall mood, setting and visual style are very much the same as those in the first installment of "Devil May Cry". When on the Hellcycle, Ghost Rider is still capable of performing many of the same chain attacks, and can shoot hellfire. The Game Boy Advance version has some elements of "Road Rash" and "Castlevania".

Alternate characters

After beating the game on certain difficulty levels, bonus character skins can be unlocked. They include Classic Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider 2099, Vengeance, and Blade the vampire hunter.

Blade gameplay

If the player chooses to start the game again as Blade, they get slightly changed gameplay. Blade only has his Daywalker Sword for a weapon, he does not have the shotgun or chain-link attacks of Ghost Rider. Combo attacks are much more limited. He also does not replenish health by absorbing flames from the occasional fire-drums staggered throughout the game levels. Instead, Blade can suck the life force from any wounded foe that is a non-boss (readiness is indicated by a circle above their heads). However, during the motorcycle-racing sections, his vehicle can still shoot firebolts, and he can use his sword for melee combat.
