If you'd heard "YouKnowWHatItIs Volume 3," you'd be aware how good a Game mixtape can be. His disses directed towards G-Unit were brilliant, point blank. This Ghost Unit mix CD follows in the same vein, but it doesn't quite compare to the previous mix.

Beginning using the "Ghostbusters" theme song, Game raps at a fast pace aiming his words as you'd assume, towards G-Unit. The teenage white boy ad-libs and hook coverage help add a comedic flair to the track.

"Ghost Unit" is at it's best with the addition of Game's guests/collaborators. Hearing Dre on "Here We Go Again" was a great draw, and adding himself to Nas' thought provoking "Don't Body Yourself" (arguably the CDs best track) works excellently. There's even Sheek Louch's "Kiss Ya Ass Goodbye" featuring Jadakiss, Beanie Sigel, Fabolous and of course Game.

However, the best collaboration, the most entertaining is "Palm Pilot." Game brings in Money Mike (the comedian from "Friday After Next"), beginning the track by sampling the Young Gunz dissing Mike, the comedian raps with Game egging him on. The track is actually surprisingly good, and very amusing. Game further asserts his problems with Young Gunz throughout the compilation.

The Olivia disses were better on "YouKnowWHatItIs," here they feel tried. The songs are worth one listen, but upon multiple experiences, just get skipped.

Overall, the mix CD is decent, but Game set a new standard for himself with "YouKnowWHatItIs." There are a couple of gems here, and some amusing material but it's not a necessity.
