Trivia

Louis Tully was originally planned to be in the game, but because of hardware limitations, animating him alongside the other main characters was impossible, and the only way they could've had his character in the game would have been in a wheelchair completely incapacitated in a full body cast. It would have been explained he got injured in an accident and was recovering. When Rick Moranis turned down the role, the part was removed. See more »

Goofs

When driving to Times Square, Ray remarks on how nice it was "after urban renewal". The urban renewal didn't even start until Rudy Giuliani became mayor in 1994, three years after the game takes place. (PC/PS3/X360 version only.) See more »

Quotes

Crazy Credits

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 »

The best Ghostbusters game ever!
20 February 2011 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

Set in 1991, it seems New York's favorite paranormal eliminators known as the Ghostbusters are still catching ghosts since the events of 1989 when they went back in business. A new recruit joins our fellow men as a different kind of evil force is creating chaos from the Sedwick Hotel to all the way to Central park where the boys with the rookie must yet again vanquish the forces of evil.

An outstanding movie based game that proves not all movie tie-in games blow! i love how this game for the Xbox360, PS3 and other systems manages to be a sort of third movie but as a video game until we get the real GB 3 coming next year. The original cast such as Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Dan Ackroyd, Annie Potts, William Atherthorn and Harold Ramis return to reprise their characters as well as 2 new characters voiced by Brian Doyle Murray and Alyssa Milano are introduced, the graphics are surprisingly well done including the settings. The controls are very good especially when your catching ghosts as well as doing new tricks like Boison-Darts to the slime-shooting like in Ghostbusters 2 if you recall.

There is terrific voice acting as well as the script written by Dan and Harold who worked on the first 2 movies scripts is quite good for a game. It's a fairly simple if sometimes hard in a couple of levels kind of game that actually satisfies the Ghostbuster fan including myself and brings back some familiar characters such as Stay-Puft to Slimer, this one introduces the guy who made the Gozar worshipers in the old days and who is the one behind the river of slime from Ghostbusters 2. I also love how it uses the original movie's soundtrack by Elmer Bernstein as well as the famous song everyone knows.

One of the best games i've ever played for it is the best GB game since the Sega Genesis GB game and the Arcade Real GB game, however it is a BIG improvement over those horrible NES GB 1 & 2 games.
