Themed game is varied and interesting, if a bit shallow.

Monster High: Ghoul Spirit earns points for its varied gameplay. That is, players can customize their character, engage in a variety of mini-games, and interact in an open virtual environment with other characters. There are several components to the game that help to keep it fresh and interesting. However, each of these components isn't very deep, making the end result a variety of basic gameplay mechanics rather than one cohesive design. That being said, the Monster High theme is prevalent and extensive, so any fan of the franchise will likely enjoy what this game has to offer.
