Ghostbusters: The Video Game
8 June 2012
Excerpt: Ghostbusters: The Video Game does exactly what you expect from a moviegame: it’s fun, accessible and brings the atmosphere, the characters and the fan favorites from the movies to life in an interactive way.
Conclusion: Recapturing the look and atmosphere of the movies to perfection, it’s impossible not to be completely endeared by Ghostbusters: The Video Game. The narrative penned by Aykroyd and Ramis remains suitably compelling and entertaining throughout and the strength of the gameplay mechanics aided by tight,...
Excerpt: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, movie tie-ins are increasingly becoming bigger and better, even if the majority of titles are entirely lacking in any form of substance, there are more and more rare success stories creeping through the critical dragnet.
Excerpt: It's almost a law of videogames: movie license-based games always disappoint. Typically, movie licenses are secured, then the game is either thrown together or simply done as a re-skin of some existing game, often without even using the voices from the license, all with the hopes that people will...

From the film studio logos that appear while it's booting and the iconic Ghostbusters theme tune, to the script penned (at least in part) by Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd, and the major film stars reprising...
Conclusion: This game is pretty rock solid representation of the Ghostbusters universe. This game gets it right by including the original actor’s voices for the game, and the music from the movies. The graphics are rendered fairly well and you feel immersed in the game.

That made me rather unique among my peers and it meant that as I sat down to play the game, I did so knowing that my eventual review could...
Conclusion: Fans of the movie should pick up the game right away while others may look at the game as simply a rental. With a single player mode of less than 10 hours, and a multiplayer that's not hot, it simply cannot be recommended to everyone.
Conclusion: Ghostbusters is the game we’ve waited for, and given a little more time, this ambitious title would be an instant classic. However, for any Ghostbusters fan, this game is a no brainer. Here’s hoping they fix multiplayer!
