Summary: LONG REVIEW Let me start out by saying that I absolutely love the Ghostbusters films. As a kid, I owned virtually every Ghostbusters toy that was on the market. The proton pack, the ghost trap, the Ecto-1, figures of Bill Murray's portrayal as Peter Venkman, etc. Literally anything I could get my hands on. These toys were creative, inventive, functional on a level that it was a legitimate good time (as a 6 year old child) to play with.
Summary: Surprisingly good but far from perfect. There are no issues with the game mechanics and the actual act of catching a ghost in a trap is fun, challenging and appropriate to the movies. Weirdly the problem lies in the linear content which rarely points you in the right direction, locks you in place and has some rather rum dialogue choices.
Summary: I grew up as a big fan of the Ghostbusters movie franchise. I've been patiently hoping for a third installment in the franchise, with those hopes dimming with each passing year. This game definitely satisfies some of those hopes. If a third movie never happens, I can be okay with this game serving as that third story. The gameplay does get a little repetitive at times, but overall, the story keeps this game afloat. If you're a fan of the movies, give this game a shot.
Summary: Not being a huge Ghostbusters fan, I enjoyed this game a lot. It had its flaws with the A.I and the Ghost combat system, but it had a charm that compelled me to keep playing and make more than one play through. The characters are all fantastic and it feels like the Ghostbusters 3 people have been wanting and this game did get me into Ghostbusters so it's worth getting.
Summary: I waited 25yrs for this game, an it was well worth the wait. The creators Terminal Reality put A LOT of love into this game, you can tell that they're a huge fan of Ghostbusters. It's definitely the best film-adaptation game ever created, and it's one of my top 3 games EVER! (an i've been gaming since i was 5 in 1985, so i've been around since gaming began) 99% of the cast of the Ghostbusters film voice themselves within the game and the story ties in with the first film...
Summary: Ghostbusters: The Video Game is one of the best movie based video games I have played. The cutscenes in Ghostbusters: The Video Game is like watching one of the Ghostbusters movies. The graphics are awesome, the controls and sounds are great and you can purchase item while playing, which is a nice addition.
Summary: Probably the best Ghostbusters video game we can ever expect. It is completely loyal to the source material and adds so much to the lore of the series (at least the movie branch of the series.) The visuals are great, the character are EXACTLY like their movie counterparts, and the atmosphere is perfect for the game. So what's wrong with it? The gameplay is a little dull at times and tends to get a little repetitive.
Summary: When you first begin this game and hear the original actors reprising their onscreen roles, it is a joyous experience, and the early sequences of this game are some of the most fun I've had on the PS3. The problem is that while "Ghostbusters" is really exciting at first, the game quickly becomes repetitive and dull. Each level is simply less inspired than the previous one.
