Excerpt: It's almost a law of videogames: movie license-based games always disappoint.

Stemningen er perfekt, humoren er intakt og næsten alle de populære figurer er med.
Conclusion: Da Dan Aykroyd i 80´erne leger med ideen om en gruppe spøgelsesjægere, er det en noget anderledes fortællling, end den vi kender i dag. Her er en gruppe spøgelsesdetektiver rejsende i tid og rum, iklædt dystre SWAT-uniformer og bevæbnet med tryllestave. Rollerne er skrevet til Dan Aykroyd, dennes kollega John Belushi, endnu en firserstjerne John Candy samt Eddie Murphy.
