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: 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.
Summary: I rented this for the PS3, and I'm glad I did. It was a lot of fun and a great movie tie-in. I may buy it someday in the future when I can get it on the cheap, but it IS a good weekend rental. I was unable to get online: the game kept telling me that I had the incorrect map version. WhatEVER! But the career mode is a lot of fun. Takes about 6 to 8 hours to complete. Perfect length for a weekend game.
Summary: So the game costs around 60 bucks, and if you are reading this is because you opted (like me) to buy the slimer edition. I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS with the game... if you are a fan you will enjoy this game. As for the "extras" that 50 bucks buy you, again, if you are a fan you are going to be pleased. What REALLY bothers me is amazon's poor description of this "special edition" 1.
Summary: Just a quick overview for those looking into buying the Slimer Edition versus the regular edition. This is a review of this particular edition and what it contains, and NOT a review of the game, which is pretty spectacular. Quick background -- I've been a huge Ghostbusters fan every since I first saw the movie when I was quite young. I loved it ever since, and have collected some neat stuff from the series.
Summary: I rented and played for about 2 hours. Gets boring and repetitive FAST. After about 2 hours it loses all its nostalgia and the hype start to fade. The your left with a mediocre movie based game. The controls are a little clunky especially running and the camera pans to slow sometimes. the graphics are OK, not resident evil 5 or metal gear that's is for sure. Its a good weekend rental, not buy.
