You May Become Dispirited

  • 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.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

  • 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.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

AV Club
20 June 2009
  • 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.

Don't call

  • Conclusion: Forget about calling Ghostbusters. Call a priest to exorcise this game of its broken controls, repetitive missions, and lame driving sequences

Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Nintendo DS)

Gamesurf
17 December 2009
  • Conclusion: La versione per Nintendo DS della nuova era videoludica dei Ghostbuster è un parente alla lontana delle edizioni per le console maggiori. Tra grafica in stile cartone animato e una discreta creatività nei testi, compaiono pericolosamente gli spettri (ehm...) della ripetitività dell'azione e di una certa mancanza di ispirazione nelle fasi giocate. Peccato, perchè le idee in stile gestionale/GDR non erano affatto malvagie.
