  • Conclusion: On the whole, Ghostbusters is an impressive production most fans should eat up. We had a fun time with the game, though we were also left with serious reservations due to glitching that might cause less-experienced gamers to hang up their proton packs well before the journey ends. For those who can get past the game’s shortcomings, however, there’s plenty of content here to justify the full price.

  • Conclusion: It’s very cumbersome and unresponsive. When you run into an entity, you pinpoint it with the stylus and hold it on the creature to drain it of its energy. While you’re doing this, you will use the shoulder button to capture it in some kind of contraption. There are plenty of sci-fi weapons and gadgets at your disposal, although they basically do the same thing.

  • Excerpt: I have fond memories of watching Ghostbusters the movie (both 1 and 2) as well as playing the game on Commodore 64 as a youth. When I heard that Atari was releasing a new game based on this franchise, but with a totally new storyline, I was eager to try it out. I had the chance to check out the DS version.

  • Conclusion: The game does a great job of capturing the movies’ camaraderie and us-vs.-them spirit. It’s the best Ghostbusters game of all time, though that really isn’t saying much.
  • Pros: Wrangling ghosts into those vacuum-boxes is extremely satisfying.
  • Cons: You encounter a handful of incongruously difficult levels.

  • Conclusion: Ghostbusters has some fun moments--zapping and trapping ghosts is a blast when it works right--but those moments are few and far between. Compared to the Ghostbusters games that came out around the same time as the movie, this game is great, but so is a burned steak compared to rotten meat. There are some great concepts and interesting mechanics here, but you have to chew through a lot of gristle to find them.
  • Pros: Interiors are detailed and feature destructible items, Zapping and trapping is easy and satisfying when it works, Great sound effects.
  • Cons: Getting hit by offscreen ghosts all the time, Controls can be unresponsive, Babysitting dumb AI team members, Everything about driving the Ecto-1.

Ghostbusters The Video Game Review

GameSpot
16 June 2009
  • Excerpt: It's good. If you're a fan of Ghostbusters (and maybe even Ghostbusters 2 ), that's all you needed to know, so you can go out and grab your copy without worrying that you'll have to tread through bad game mechanics just to get a few good laughs. If for some reason you're a newcomer to the franchise, that's OK too. Ghostbusters The Video Game is a humorous and amusing third-person action-adventure with some clever mechanics and loads of personality.
  • Pros: It's hilarious, Wrangling and trapping ghosts is a blast, Varied environments, Multiplayer is really enjoyable
  • Cons: Frustrating knockbacks and knockdowns, Too much reviving, not enough busting, Combat can get a little monotonous
