Ghostbusters The Video Game

 

Ghostbusters is such riotous fun that you'll forgive its short length.

It's really funny ; Capturing ghosts is a ton of fun ; Well-paced mix of combat, spirit scanning, and puzzle solving ; Great sound design

It's too short ; A few technical quirks and glitches

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Review

 

As the first new official ghostbusters material for nearly 20 years, and featuring almost all the original cast, does busting still feel good after all [...]

Story ; Upgrades ; Nice mix of combat/ adventure

Sometimes ugly graphics ; Short ; Can be glitchy still

"Ghostbusters" is pretty hit-and-miss. In some parts it looks fantastic, and in others, pretty shoddy. In some parts, it's really funny, and in other parts, it falls flat. The multiplayer can be pretty fun, but it's pretty glitchy. The base gameplay is...

Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Wii)

 

For many, the films Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II hold a special place in the nostalgic memories of their childhood. Whether old enough to have seen the films at the cinema, re-watched them again and again on VHS, or caught them when first aired on...

Intuitive and engaging control system ; Follows on from the films ; Co-operative play ; Good dialogue ; Choice of gender ; Nostalgic ; Original film cast members used as voice actors ; Cartoon graphics

Cartoon graphics ; Short story ; Lag issues ; Surroundings damage estimate system is pointless

Ghostbusters: The Video Game for the Wii may have issues, but the game is a nostalgic joy to behold. The Wii's control system is the closest any of us will ever get to ghost busting.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Review

 

The latest in a long line of video games based on the Ghostbusters franchise is described by Dan Aykroyd as the 'the third movie'.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game successfully captures the movies charm and humour with an engaging (if somewhat predictable) story, witty dialogue and familiar characters. Add in some entertaining gameplay, colourful cartoon graphics and great voice...

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

 

The Ghostbusters is a staple of any good 80s movie collection and is one of the more recognizable pop culture brands. This makes it all the more confusing as to why a title with such potential would have a difficult a time as this title did making it...

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

 

Red Fly Studios, developers of the well-received Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars for Wii, have released their second title in Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Published by Atari, this third person action adventure has gamers teaming up with the original...

Ghostbusters: The Video Game is well worth a pick up on Wii. The motion controls work great, the game is a lot of fun and well put together, and there is a co-op mode to enjoy with a friend or relative. Good for all ages.

Ghostbusters: The Videogame Review

 

Totally Worth Crossing The Streams

Excellent, visceral combat, authentic Ghostbusters vibe, great storyline

Some boring puzzles and environments; can get repetitive

Ok, so there are some issues that keep this from being the pinnacle of Ghostbusters nirvana. It's still the most fun you can have without strapping on a proton pack, hijacking an old ambulance, and harassing the undead ladies at your local library.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

 

The Ghostbusters are back and you're the new recruit in this incredibly fun addition to the series.

Co-op mode is a blast ; Original cast and music add to the authentic feel ; Funny dialogue

Slowdown with two players ; Lack of real challenge ; Too linear

Wow...
