I ordered the special/collectors edition of Ghostbusters a few weeks ago when it was a daily video game deal. The Slimer statue is very impressive and was designed by the person who designed Slimer for the movies (Google Amazon Slimer for details). Thus this statue is not just cheap plastic junk. The details on it are very well done -- teeth, fingernails, bumps. The designer shows you what he intended Slimer to look like. It is about 10 inches high. The car is cute and the puffy stickers okay. Basically, try to determine what you would spend for the statue and add that to the basic game price. I separately ordered the Stay-Puft bank -- that would have been a nice addition to this set.

Compare this to the Batman CE, which has a cheap plastic batarang. All CE are not the same; I think Ghostbusters has one of the better ones.

This is a review of the Amazon.com exclusive Slimer Edition, not the game itself.

First of all, I was a little disappointed with the packaging. There is no special packaging to speak of. Instead, everything arrives in a plain, unmarked box. You would never know what was in it, if it weren't for the shipping label on the side. It looks like this is the exact box in which the set was shipped from the manufacturer to Amazon. Inside, there is an unmarked white box with the Slimer statue in it, the keychain, the puffy sticker sheet, and the game. It is just a normal copy of the game, sealed, with no special packaging. Check out the customer images, as I'll be putting up pics of the set (UPDATE: for some reason my pics won't show up, so you won't be able to find them unless Amazon gets the problem resolved). I see that Amazon is now offering a digital download of the Amazon.com Exclusive Slimer Edition Box Art. I didn't originally get this, but I e-mailed Amazon and they gave me a link to download it. It is just a PDF of special Amazon.com cover art, which you can print and slip into your game case, to make the game seem like a "special" edition. Now, on to the items.

Exclusive Ghostbusters Gamer Graffix Skins: Well, I'm not sure what makes these "skins". They are just a set of "puffy" stickers. You know, those stickers that are slightly raised and feel "puffy." When viewing Amazon's pictures, the picture that shows the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, Slimer, and the logo on a black background, is the sticker set. Each one of the images is a separate sticker.

Ecto1 Key Chain: This is sort of neat, but as stated by other reviewers, it DOES NOT light up. It just makes a noise.

So overall the game is good. I'm about 4 hours into it and have enjoyed the levels. There is some great variety and the actual ghost trapping mechanics are fun. Fans of the movies and Tv series will be right at home.

The Slimer Edition Extras are nice. The Ecto 1 keychain has a replaceable battery and the car makes the Ecto1 siren sound when you press a button on top. There are no lights on the car, contrary to Amazon's description. The stickers are from gamergraffix, but instead of being a console wrap like they sell on their website, the Slimer edition has 4 removable stickers that you can stick on things. I haven't found a good use for them yet, but they might go good on something like a 3 ring binder.

The big win is the Slimer sculpture. This thing is really nice. Slimer is separate from the stand and he has a peg in his hand that connects him to the logo. He does not glow in the dark but he does look nice under a blacklight.

Let's face it, nearly all movie based games suck. In the past, only a couple gems have been able to slip through. Spider-man 2 for Xbox and PS2...and Gamecube. And Chronicles of Riddick for xbox and PC.

This is one of those games. Terminal Reality spent alot of time working on this. And they where obviously very proud of how it was going, at every turn of development they let the "scene" know what was going on, showed off screen shots, and was more than happy to talk about the game in interviews and the likes.

I won't get into the summary of the game.. but I'll talk about everything else.

The graphics are amazing. all the little details pop, the physics are impressive and at times, it can actually be a little creepy in the dark. Sound is phenomenal the proton packs and traps sound just the way there suppose to, all the explosions, ghosts taunting you, and for the most part, the voice work is good too. honestly though. Bill Murray sounds bored, or like he's to goo to be doing a voice over for a game.. I dunno, I didn't like Murrays work in this.

This game was also written by the 2 guys who wrote the movies. (Dan Akyroyd and Harold Ramis.) So, you would think the story is top notch!.. Well, it's OK, but no where near what I was hoping for. The ending kindof falls out too.

All in all though, this is a great game, let alone a great Movie based game.

EXTRA NOTE: The multiplayer aspects are all messed up.. PS3 version and Xbox360 version ONLY have online multiplayer. Don't get me wrong, it's fun!. But there is NO splitscreen.
on the other hand. The Wii gets Splitscreen, but NO online multiplayer. and for anyone thinking about the PC version... think again. It doesn't have ANY multiplayer AT ALL!.
