Did You Know?


Dana Barrett was originally in the script, but Sigourney Weaver turned down the offer to play the role. However, Weaver changed her mind when the rest of the films cast, including Bill Murray, were signed on, but by that time, Dana had been written out and the part had been rewritten as Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn (played by Alyssa Milano).

The so-called "Grey lady" has been bright purple every time she has been seen. Why would she be dubbed "the Grey lady"? Because "grey lady" is a common paranormalist term for an elderly female ghost, regardless of the coloration of the apparition. See more »

Despite being made in 2009, the intro movie for this game carries the 1980s Columbia Pictures logo on it, just like the original Ghostbusters movie. However, the Columbia logo seen before the main menu loads is the modern one. See more »

who ya gonna call?
27 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been a fan of ghost busters since i was a kid. i saw the movies, watched the cartoon, i was even a ghost buster for halloween when i was 8 years old.

well i was looking through game demo's on xbox live and saw that there was a Ghost Busters video game. so i downloaded the demo and played it. at first i wasn't too impressed. catching the ghosts were fun and awesome but i felt the demo showed it as more of a puzzle game. well 2 years past since then and i was in the store looking for a cheap game to entertain me and i saw it on the shelf and it was pretty cheap. so i decided oh well i guess ill get it. it will entertain me for a while.

while playing it i actually got into it. the characters were just as i remembered. especially Bill Murray's character. and i got really excited to fight the Stay Puft marshmallow man lol.

well yea it is sort of a puzzle game and it seems even more ridiculous than the ghost busters movies but you got to remember Ghost Busters is not supposed to be a horror movie or game. its supposed to be a comedy and this team of misfits just gets into this kind of trouble while investigating and catching the paranormal.
