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,...
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!
Excerpt: Although fans of the Ghostbusters movies were never treated to a third film, gamers can now play the official follow-up of the second movie which begins in 1991 and reunites the original actors to voice these characters.
Excerpt: cto 1 blasts through the streets of Midtown Manhattan, sirens wailing and lights flashing; familiar theme music thumps out in stereo; voice actors sound uncannily like Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson (because they are); the one-liners fly with the rapidity of machine gun...

Summary: It's good. If you're a fan of Ghostbusters (and maybe even Ghostbusters 2 ), that's all you needed to know, so you can go out and grab your copy without worrying that you'll have to tread through bad game mechanics just to get a few good laughs.
Pros: It's hilarious, Wrangling and trapping ghosts is a blast, Varied environments, Multiplayer is really enjoyable
Cons: Frustrating knockbacks and knockdowns, Too much reviving, not enough busting, Combat can get a little monotonous
Excerpt: I was a little kid when the Ghostbusters movie came out and I went nuts for it. If it was playing in a theater, I snuck in to see it. If a friend's family rented the video, I invited myself over for an extended stay. I quoted dialogue lines and sang along with the theme song.
