Summary: I'm a HUGE Ghostbusters fan so it's difficult for me to be totally unbiased in reviewing this game given that it was essentially created by and stars the bulk of the original cast. To be honest if it wasn't for that fact I might have only given this game two stars. It's not a terrible game. In fact it has a lot of redeeming qualities. The graphics are top-notch. The storyline is actually pretty cool and ties in very well with the films (especially the first one).
Summary: This is a very fun game. The game itself is great. Busting ghost heads is the funnest thing you could do in your spare time. The environments look nice and the gameplay is surprisingly fluid. If you are a fan of the Ghostbusters, this game is a must. Written by the writers of the original movies, Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd (Egon and Ray themselves), the story is pretty awesome.
Summary: The story and voice work was entertaining. I enjoyed that they got the Ghostbuster actors to play the voices. I do have to say that the game was pretty dark and the levels all kind of looked the same. I was able to play til the end so it wasn't half bad. I would recommend it if you are a Ghostbuster fan.
Summary: I haven't completed Ghostbusters yet, but I haven't given up on it. I'm enjoying the story and the characters. The characters are spot on with the movies. They should be since the voice actors are actually the original actors from the movies. The game-play is mostly action. I haven't come across any puzzles. I don't think there will be any since I'm about 4-5 hours in at this point. Aside from the action there is some "Easter egg" hunting for items.
Summary: I just got my PS3 a few months back and have been very selective in the games that I have played. I currently only own Madden 10, and the Uncharted 1 & 2 games. I normally play a lot of sports games however since I want to expand my gaming I turned to more shooter involved games such as Call of Duty and others. I also wanted to experience some fun in my game selection as I also own a Wii and feel those are the more goof-around games.
Ghostbusters Nostalgia Helping to Gloss Over Problems

Summary: I had been eagerly awaiting this game for over a year, as I believe the original release date was supposed to be last year. I finally got it in the mail and loaded it up to experience a since of nostalgia as the famous Ghostbusters music blared. Your character is a no-name recruit who gets to work aside the original cast, all voiced by the real actors, and the graphics immediately gripped me, along with the nostalgia and I was hooked--but not for long.
Summary: It's been a long time coming, but finally, this is a Ghostbusters game that isn't terrible. Unfortunately, it's still not that great, either. The love and care that went into this production is evident, and I feel guilty to speak poorly of it, but it's really not something I would recommend to just anyone.
