Summary: I ain't afraid of no ghosts, but I seriously doubt famed parapsychologists Peter Veckman, Egon Spengler, and Ray Stantz feel the same despite their pedigree. Though Ghostbusters does a lot of things right, most notably the creative use of the proton pack, smart script, and great voice acting (Bill Murray's performance in particular stands out), the experience derails when the battles turn frantic and the ghost attacks overwhelm the hapless Ghostbusters.
Conclusion: So far, Terminal Reality's interpretation of
Ghostbusters for the Xbox 360 has impressed us
in several ways. The developer did a good job of
nailing down many of the movie's encore
experiences: being able to strap down your
proton packs and racking up ghosts that
terrorize the citizens of New York. While the
action itself doesn't offer much variety, the
destructible environment, intermittent
puzzle-solving, and a whole slew of creepy
designs will keep you on your toes.

Summary: Licence forte des années 80, la série Ghostbusters a rapidement connu un succès retentissant auprès du public. L'idée était simple, mais diablement efficace : créer les chasseurs de fantômes les plus farfelus de la planète. C'est ainsi que Peter Venkman et ses acolytes partirent à l'assaut de la moindre manifestation ectoplasmique au coeur de New-York, situations propices aux rencontres les plus invraisemblables avec la population d'outre-tombe de la ville.
Pros: Fidèle à la série, Multi sympathique..., La variété du gameplay, Les fantômes, Dialogues croustillants
Cons: Les combats parfois chaotiques, Un peu court, Manque d'ambition graphique, ... mais dispensable
