Spooptober: Grabbed by the Ghoulies

Virtual Bastion’s #Spooptober celebration is but a memory, but it’s no reason not to remember a game that is the embodiment of spoopiness – none other than Rare’s classic Grabbed by the Ghoulies!


Rare’s Grabbed by the Ghoulies didn’t make many waves when it was first released on the Xbox in October 2003. The game received middling reviews and, at most, was deemed good but not great. I recall seeing the game box in the stores, thinking “eh, looks dumb,” and moving onto belatedly drool over American McGee’s Alice.  Fast forward some eighteen years to me trying out Grabbed by The Ghoulies for the first time through Rare Replay, and now I’m singing a different tune.
