Summary: Ok so sanctum of slime. Cheesy yet ok for the price of $2.00 off xbox live. I played this entire game and it brought back memories of playing with my brother when we were kids on the sega genesis, a juvenile play. Although the gameplay and graphics were all too close to the retro system. The game for me was a little short and they just kept on repeating maps and ghouls over and over. The cutscenes were lame and poor taste for comics.
Summary: While it has some OK-ish background visuals at some points, overall this game is just terrible. It's repetitive, the animation is just bland and unimaginative and the narrative is almost nonexistent. A real shame, because with a bit more care and love it could have been something of note. RIP SoS.
Summary: I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan and even I hate this game. It's so boring. The story is awful and the characters are so lame. They talk via text and the things they say are so darn stupid and seem like they were written by a 5 year old. The "cut scenes" are done via comic style panels and suck. They are drawn poorly and add nothing to the game.
Summary: Older gamers will instantly notice the similarity in gameplay this has to Acclaim's 1990 arcade game "Smash TV." Players move from room to room eliminating ghosts with different guns and traps, including the proton pack from the films. You are one of four new recruits to the Ghostbuster business and are charged with cleaning out the supernatural elements of an old mental hospital. It is a very simple game that lost my interest very quickly.
Summary: This is a broken game, that repeats it environments over and over again. This is nothing more then an attempt to make money on the Ghostbuster Franchise. Forget about even trying to play by yourself, and just a few minutes into the game will leaving you wanting to pull out your hair. The collision detection is atrocious, the controls are broken, along with a myriad of other problems that plague this game.
Summary: So I bought this purely out of nostalgia and hopes it would be as awesome as the Ghostbusters game from a year or so back. Think of it as Ikaruga meets Call of Duty Dead Ops but with a fun license. Keep in mind I hated those games. There is one achievement I can not get that is finish a level with 3 people. EVERYONE quites halfway through the levels. the AI that replaces them is suicidally retarded and it becomes an escort mission of sorts.
Summary: If you have any respect to the 'ghostbusters'-Franchise skip this clean up to any platform other than your cellphone. The most horrible ghostbusters experience EVER. Being fan of the movies and well even kind of the first 'The Video Game' was pretty decent for storyline (can't say same for the technical side). Giving 1 'star' since it didn't crash on start-up and uninstaller worked.
Summary: Please note this review is based on first impressions, I have only played seventy-four minutes worth according to Steam. When I finish I will re-review. Okay, watch out people this is old school video arcade gaming. Yes there is button mashing, but you have to mash the correct buttons AND point the joysticks in the correct directions - I fear these skills might be lacking in the youth of today.
