There is no doubt that the original Ghostbusters film is one of the most widely known science fiction films of the 1980s, a film that separated itself from the others by being both a hilarious comedy and also an interesting science tale. By contrast,...

What a trip! Ripped straight from the movie, you warm up your Proton Pack and do battle with some of the film icons, plus a few new ones. A heap of ectoplasmatic fun for anyone who still smiles at the siren sound and the iconic “who you gonna...

The Ghostbusters game has created quite a lot of controversy in the gaming world, more specifically that the XBox 360 and PC version were held back due to Sony but thankfully this embargo has been lifted and now PC users can enjoy the "official" game...

The review for this game has been a long time coming – seriously. Ghostbusters for me, like so many others of my generation, was so much more than a movie; it was a cultural phenomenon. At my house, we had the Ray Parker Jr. 45 that I used to play...

Overall the game makes for an excellent substitute to a true Ghostbusters sequel that may or may not ever come, but the PC version was, sadly, not treated with the same care as the console versions. 6.3/10Print this pageUser reviews (0)Share this...

As I’m typing this review, I can look back and think, “huh, the gameplay was fairly linear, and while it was fun, it wasn’t particularly innovative.” MEET RAY STANZ: The game does a great job at capturing the likeness of our...

Ghostbusters: The game puts you in the boots of a brand new nameless recruit who’s recently enrolled with the Ghostbusters to rid New York of all evil. As with all new recruits you’ll initially be a glorified test dummy who gets to try out...

Ghostbusters: The Video Game is an amusing little game. It is quite short and lacks multiplayer support, but it was also quite inexpensive, retailing for only $29.99 in store or on Steam. It performs well and looks fantastic, but given its short...

It is with an appropriately cynical eye that the gaming community has been monitoring the progress of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Sure, it’s easy to get excited about the revival of a popular franchise from two decades ago. We had been promised...

Merely from recent history, I feared for the worst with Ghostbusters. Movie adaptions almost never go well, but it seems that Ghostbusters translates very well into a video game, especially if you’re a fan of the movies. Ghostbusters is voiced by...

For over twenty years Ghostbusters fans have been waiting for a third movie and a defining videogame to revive the fun fright-hunting franchise. Finally, with Ghostbusters: The Video Game, they get both...sort of. You see, Ataris haunting new entry...

Sure, this might not be the “perfect” Ghostbusters experience, but think of it this way: an old franchise, rebuilt from the ground up as a video game, for multiple platforms. See? You were expecting something awful, but this is a genuinely...

It’s fortunate that somebody at Terminal Reality understands exactly what made the Ghostbusters films so entertaining. While the publishers are keen to play up the roles of Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis – who both contributed to the script...

Despite some drawbacks, this satisfying adventure is just what youd want from a Ghostbusters game: its funny and its fun....

Its good. If youre a fan of (and maybe even ), thats all you needed to know, so you can go out and grab your copy without worrying that youll have to tread through bad game mechanics just to get a few good laughs. If for some reason youre a...

By Armchair Empire on 60

When came out in the halcyon days of 1984, you'd have been hard pressed to find somebody more into the film than me. I might have been a little tyke, but the film was insanely cool to me, and it probably qualifies as the first film I ever found...

International Review By I Am Gamer on 78

Who ya gonna call..? Ghostbusters!!! Egon, Peter, Ray und Winston sind zurück. Knappe 20 Jahre sind seit den Filmen vergangen, der Zahn der Zeit ist hier aber stehen geblieben. Im New York der neunziger Jahre boomt das Geschäft so sehr, dass...

„Ghostbusters“ bietet jeden Menge spannender Action, die keine besonderen Erfordernisse benötigt, allerdings auch nur für Fans wirklich richtig interessant ist. Aufgrund der großen Shooter-Konkurrenz sieht das Spiel im...

All in all, Ghostbusters The Video game is brilliant. This is the first time I’ve played a Ghostbusters game and actually felt like I was one of the Ghostbusters. The graphics are great, they story feels like it should be the script for the next...
