Conclusion: Ghostbusters is just one of those amazing and immersive games that make you all giddy inside. The game truly has an amazing effect on its players. It may not have a lot of depth, but it easily makes up for that in the fun department. It is worth noting that Ghostbusters is a little on the short side, giving you about 6 to 8 hours of gameplay. Fortunately the replay value is fairly high, making this a recommended buy.
Conclusion: However, when you realize just how many people play with one person to a console, this hangup is mitigated, and then it is simple to see how Call of Duty 4 has done so well. It offers an incredibly engaging experience, as well as a certain flavor that games from Bungie or Epic simply don’t strive for, minus the complete insanity of your average Battlefield players. Military shooters are a dime a dozen, but none can come close to Call of Duty’s overall offerings.
Conclusion: Lately, whenever I play a new release, I look back afterwards and remember if during the game I ever thought about the room around me, or the errands I was skipping out on, or how I was going to write the review. If any of these things happen, then the game was losing my attention, and it is a guarantee that I will have some very harsh words for it. If instead I find myself staring at a clock that is five hours later than I thought it should be, then it is a winner.

Cons: Some very challenging missions, Steep hardware demands
Conclusion: In many ways the kicking the game makes for relevancy separates it from all other games in the genre, specifically kicking against the idea of sterile war environments, and offering a view of modern combat as something that can’t be contained – so that when the Russians invade, there is space to see a recognition of the inability to contain war quite so much as we would wish to believe possible.
