Ghostbusters the Video Game
1 November 2009
Excerpt: The Ghostbusters game has created quite a lot of controversy in the gaming world, more specifically that the XBox 360 and PC version were held back due to Sony but thankfully this embargo has been lifted and now PC users can enjoy the "official" game which is considered the third movie in the...
Conclusion: right from the beginning that they haven't lost their visual chops. The digital reproductions of the original cast members are all spot on. There's no possibility you're going to mistake one person for another. It only gets better from there.
Excerpt: For those who loved the Ghostbusters movies you’ll feel like you’re in them. You’re a part of the team as you play the new recruit named “rookie”. They named you rookie so they don’t get too attached to you.
Pros: This game is true to the movie series. Excellent graphics and voice acting.
Cons: Short game play, no multiplayer on PC version
Excerpt: A little over a month ago, while reading an article about some of the must own titles from the PlayStation Store, I discovered a game known as Fat Princess. Though the title of the game did not inspire much enthusiasm at first, but once I discovered that it was an adventure strategy game with a hack...
Conclusion: Fat Princess is hilarious and is incredibly fun to play. It is easily one of the PlayStation 3's best downloadable games yet. The trophies and unlockable character options, as well as the promise of future downloadable content should keep you coming back for more.
Excerpt: Okay, I’ll admit it – I played through Ghostbusters a bit slower than I would have played other games. Can you blame me? I’m a gigantic Ghostbusters fan– to this day I still own the action figure line, the firehouse and yes – even the costume.
Conclusion: Perhaps one of the best ways to get a kick out of this one is going into action against hordes of paranormal beings with a mate. The multiplayer is great fun, offering. Choosing one of the original Ghosbusters while taking out ghosts in co-op - now that's the stuff.
Pros: Has all the key elements, great dialogue and characterization, decent enough plot structure, enemy variety, proton packs are still cool, enjoyable boss fights, captures the feel and atmosphere of the movies, cast;
Cons: Revival doesn't always work the way you want it to in solo play, friendly AI unresponsive at times, shame you can't experience the main campaign in co-op.
In Case You Missed It – Ghostbusters: The Video Game
True PC gaming
23 May 2009
Excerpt: As gamers we may often lament the presence of film properties in games (or when games are made into movies), but it is less commonly the case where games are used as a storyline succession for a movie franchise.
Conclusion: Chrono Trigger was and still is a great game. It's a true testament to the timelessness of this game because so much was left intact for this release. If you have yet to play Chrono Trigger (once again you should be ashamed) then this is the definitive release of the title - and if you are a fan of...
