A dream come true...seriously, 21 October 2009
Author: brownish33 from United States

first off, i always thought the ghostbusters movies would make a good video game. a few years ago i thought this in my mind, just a passing thought that GB's would be a cool game to play. and low and behold, my little passing fancy became a reality. UN-believable. and let me tell you, its so worth it.

I notice some guys are saying that this game "sucks" if your a hardcore gamer. They couldn't be more wrong. The game has plenty of neat and fun challenges to accomplish, and just from a game point of view, it looks phenomenal, like a movie. But I do have to agree, the ones who really win here are the GB fans. But obviously most people love GB from what I can tell, so who wouldn't enjoy busting ghosts in full HD amazingly detailed environments and gadgets? Sure it is linear to a point, but its just a really fun trip that I have a hard to imagining anyone really getting bored here. Its just fun, and it has some great humor which is sorely missing in many games today.

whenever i see or think of ghostbusters, i get that warm and fuzzy feeling of back when i was a kid and loving to watch the movies, heck even the corny cartoon shows. but i always have fond memories of these movies. now, years later, to play a game and being able to hunt ghosts with the original cast in familiar locations, i mean it just brings back all those feelings i had when i was younger. its probably one of the funnest and funniest games out there right now. i loved both films, and personally i must admit i prefer the 2nd film, but this game seems to take a lot of its story from story elements from the first movie. however i did notice that there was also many references to the 2nd film, moments like going into a sewer where instead of a river of slime, its a "river" of flowing PK energy spirits. even ray mentions "does it feel familiar in here guys?". and of course all the slime and slime blowers are there, as well as vigo's painting in the firehouse that says funny things.

it follows the same formula of the last 2 films: there's disturbances, ghostbusters check them out and bust lots of ghosts, they find out who the big villain is, and they defeat him. its this same formula that has made the GB films so much fun and memorable, and the game follows this tradition. the graphics are STUNNING, i am truly amazed how life like they are able to get these characters nowadays. the gear itself is totally accurate and looks amazing in the game like the ecto goggles, PKE meter, and especially the proton pack, which you see change and alter throughout, with new upgrades that are fantastically wild but yet stay within the reality of the ghostbuster world. busting ghosts was never this fun, i mean its awesome to be able to shoot the proton pack for real in a game! i ALWAYS wanted to use them! all the cast is here, even Walter peck is back. heck, even that Murray brother who was in GB2 is in this one! its really a great treat for all GB fans everywhere and i throughly enjoyed it and plan to enjoy it for a long time. the game definitely has repeat value, I've played it so many times now and let me tell you, busting ghosts NEVER gets old. its so much fun, and the story is surprisingly complex and good. not good enough for a 3rd movie script (seriously, bringing back all the villains from the first movie can only work in a video game) but still a very interesting twist on the first movie's, and to an extent the 2nd movie's, ideas. totally worth all the bucks i paid, all 60 of them!

heres to hoping for a game sequel!
