Very Bad Port
27 December 2013
Summary: I bought this game with the intention of playing it for a live stream...I have cancelled it do to the fact that the port STILL kept its forced mouse acceleration which should have been removed when it was ported everything else is fine except that acceleration making the game difficult if not impossible to play. as a big fan of ghostbusters this is very depressing.

Summary: Could not even get to download to work! & I have a knew computer. it takes like forever to download. Like a couple of days its says it will take three hrs. to ten hrs. to download. & I origonaly bought it on Atri website & it did the same thing. & I tryed it On My Brand new laptop as well as My PC. I would just By the disc if I was You! I wouldn't lie! Plus I'm the biggest Ghostbusters Fan! I have the Ghostbusters logo tattooed on My arm! & I had buy the disc instead.
Summary: the game is fun and detailed but I got it, figuring the system specs are correct. so my computer more than meets the specs listed on the box. when I try to install it it doesn't work. I have to fiddle with it just to get the game even to load. then while I'm playing the game experiences slow downs and even completely crashes finally leading to my video card drivers crashing.
Summary: I'd like to tell you more about Ghostbusters the video game, but my system isn't powerful enough to play it. I didn't see the system requirements on the Amazon page for the PC version, but I would've bought the title anyways to try. Though the game does run, in-game movement was like a slide-show and I couldn't advance far enough to bust a single ghost. If your video card has less than 512 megs of RAM on board? Don't bother buying this game.
Summary: Installation issues aside Ghostbusters for the PC is an enjoyable experience albeit rather short for a decent shooter. The game is played from an over-the-shoulder perspective that can be a little confusing when first starting out though I became comfortable with the controls after the first few levels. INSTALLATION: Firstly, there is plenty of installtion troubles with the game.
Summary: Just to get this out of the way, I DON'T CARE about the drm, I'm not paranoid about SecuROM or whatever. This is a fun game, though the controls suffer a bit from being designed for console controllers. It took me an hour and a half to discover this, though, because the game will not install to any directory other than the default! After exchanging the disc for an alternate (defective, read errors during install!
Conclusion: Yes it is all very nice and reminds you of the film etc, but to be honest that wears off very quickly which leaves you with what games strive to have: gameplay. Unfortunately this is where the game falls on its behind. The game is very linear and you don't have any chance to wander off the beaten track. When it comes to capturing the ghosts, most the time I felt like I was not even participating and just firing randomly at the ghosts had the same effect.
Excerpt: A unica coisa q eu achei muito foda nesse game é o grafico, os efeitos de luz e os personagens estão muito parecidos, a historia e mais ou menos, e os personagens tem uma inteligência q ultrapassa o ridículo,eu estou jogando no normal e eles não duram 30 segundos vivo em alguns casos, o nivel de dificuldade e bom pois e alto mais nçai ajuda o personagens ter uma reação de 2 segundos após ter apertado o botão para ele se esquivar, e isso e podre pq vc tem de prever o atak...
