4.0 out of 5 stars Just like being in the movie November 30, 2011
By SR
Verified Purchase
This game is different from FPS which was refreshing. Like the title says, it is just like you're in it. The game characters interact with you that way. It can be a bit challenging at times cause you have to do some unknown maneuvers to overcome some ghosts. your buddies do clue you in, though. Graphics, sounds, camera view and game mechanics are very good. Cut scene graphics could be better, but gameplay graphics are way better. This beats all the old GB games out there, obviously. You will not be disappointed.

Good game, a little on short side. I like the game concept, but could use a little more interactive extras other than the main objective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good game based on the Ghostbusters movies February 12, 2013
By Kevo
Verified Purchase
I haven't had any issues with this one crashing on my PC, so I am not sure what the issue is here. The download from Amazon went pretty smoothly and I had no problems with the installation. I'm using windows 7 64bit, by the way.

But as for the game... well it's a surprisingly great single player experience that puts you in the role of a new Ghostbusters recruit whose job it is to test all the new gadgets that the other Ghostbusters come up with. The game has some pretty good level variety and has many callbacks to the original movies. Each actor is represented well in their roles and get equal time in the game. You do feel like you are the 5th Ghostbuster.

Graphics are still good, despite this being almost a 4 year old game now. Some of the character animation does look a bit stiff though, but that can be excusable. The voice acting is respectable and the game using music directly lifted from the movies. The game play is also really solid and the proton pack shooting mechanics work really well. There are also some other neat play mechanics like the slime tether gun and proton grappling gun. The game takes roughly eight or so hours on average to complete from start to finish. Which is a good length for a cinematic game like this.

The only complaint I have is that the ending felt a bit sloppy, and some story elements felt a little tacked on, like Alyssa Milano's character for example. But the adventure through the game does make up for these downfalls. The PC version also apparently lacks the multilayer components of the console games, but this is not really a big deal if you are expecting a single player experience only.

If you like Ghostbusters, or are looking for something a little different from all the ego centric/ first person shooter/ military shooters out there, then this may be a good choice for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars WANT SEQUEL June 24, 2013

This game is amazing. the story plays off of the movies and the comic series hints back to the game. Smooth controls and varying difficulties make it a fun and enjoyable experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back March 3, 2012
I appreciate that everyone but Rick Moranis (retired) came back to not only act for but write the dialogue for the game. Humor all throughout.
Challenging enemies and bosses, secrets to find, a good story line. The graphics were great and the story engrossing all while keeping the standard levity that Ghostbusters does.
It was a play over for me. I really enjoyed it.

I have both the Wii and PC versions of this game. Love both, and there are enough subtle differences between the two platforms (while maintaining the integrity of the over all story line) to make playing both enjoyable.

I will say that I prefer the PC version, but mainly because I havespent more time playing PC games over platform. Its more an issue of familiar controler styles.

Great hame; and if you're someone who has longed for a 3rd Ghostbusters movie, you definitely want to play this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Activation Key Invalid October 19, 2013
By Isaac
Verified Purchase
I am giving this 1 star to inform potential buyers:

I purchased the Digital Download from Amazon but the Activation Key it came with was invalid so I couldn't play the game. Amazon told me I had to contact Atari to solve the problem, I did but Atari did not reply. I uninstalled the game and Amazon gave me a refund.

You will want to buy this game for console to avoid all the PC activation and installation problems. Or take your chances with this and hope you have better luck than I did.
