I loved the movie and was psyched for the game...then I played it :(
30 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This game was just a complete disappointment for me. I so loved the movie, saw it multiple times and when I saw this game for rent I had to have it. Thankfully, I did rent it before buying it, because this game was a total disappointment. My guess it was on the C64 before it made its way to the Nintendo and this game is a direct port, which would explain the really shoddy graphics. I know it is the Nintendo, but even by those standards the game should look better than what we get here. I mean look at Zelda or Super Mario Brothers. This one has you going around a street map, you have to buy your equipment before heading to a building and it is time to bust some ghosts. Every now and then you can enter the Zuul building and if you do, you will need a turbo based controller to get up them stairs or fingers of steel! Not joking here, I finally made it up thanks to the NES advantage! I kind of get scared at the idea of a human who can manage to press the buttons fast enough to make it to the top. Most of the game is driving to get where you are going. Suffice to say it is not so much the ghosts that get you on the mean streets, but the horrible drivers. You bust ghosts to get money, you get money to buy better equipment, and you need that equipment to make it up the hellish staircase in the Zuul building. Catching ghosts is a bore, but once again now knowing this game was most likely the same one for the C64 it is a bit more understandable. Still does not make up for my disappointment as a child though.
