Sega’s top-grossing light-gun game, Ghost Squad, comes to the Wii system and replicates the excitement of the arcade experience in your home!.

The Ghost Squad is a Special Forces unit established in strict secrecy by the U.N. to combat terrorism and carry out special highly-classified missions without leaving a trace. As an elite member of the Ghost Squad, players will complete dangerous missions such as eliminating terrorist groups, releasing hostages, deactivating bombs, and even rescuing the US President when terrorists hijack Air Force One!

Using the Wii Remote or Nintendo’s new Wii Zapper peripheral, players will utilize revolutionary selectable weapons including a high powered rifle, sub machine and shot gun, or even engage in hand-to-hand combat. Exclusive to the Wii conversion of the game are four-player support, and an online high score leaderboard support via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Problems

Hang on First Boss

In the 1st mission, just before the boss (Havoc in his helicopter), the game freezes (black screen). The solution is to enable the "External FrameBuffer" (in the "Hacks" section) to Virtual (tested on 4.0-3669). Should be accounted for with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874.
