Disney's theme park ride gets the big screen treatment this year, and TDK is following closely on its spectral trail with a PS2 tie-in.
Cross the threshold of Disney's Haunted Mansion and prepare for a spook-laden scare-a-thon in the guise of mild-mannered caretaker Zeke. After answering an advert in the paper, the reluctant ghost hunter becomes trapped in the house from hell, armed with only a lantern to defend himself from the cadaverous occupiers lurking in every corner.
Imbued with Disney's distinctive brand of charm and wit, The Haunted Mansion is a delightful slice of phantom-chasing action, with more than 40 different locations to explore on your ghost-capturing travels. Zeke's lantern may seem somewhat inadequate in a toe-to-sheet battle against the undead, but luckily for the unwilling adventurer it's actually a magic torchlight that can sort out errant apparitions in double-quick time. It's also possible to upgrade your lantern's properties by collecting six gems from the bosses you encounter at the end of each level.
As you explore the Gracey Mansion you'll encounter a range of puzzles set within each of the rooms which, when solved, will restore power to that particular area. They're just the right side of taxing, and provide a nice balance to the spook-dodging action.
- Explore over 40 different spooky locations within the mansion
- Solve a range of puzzles set in the house's many rooms
- Featuring voice talent from the Disney movie
