Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never written a review on here but I was motivated to by all the negative mainstream reviews surrounding the Wii version of this game. This is not going to be wordy so I will cut to the chase.

I own both the 360 and Wii versions of this game. The 360 game is, hands down, the better version. The graphics are better, the sound effects are better, the level and enemy design is better, and it really does give you the feeling you are a part of the third movie.

So, with that being said, why am I still so high on the Wii version? Simply this: After the "wow" factor of the 360 one (and I played that first), I'm actually having more fun playing the Wii version. Two things really stick out about it: The animation and the controls.

Yes, they look like cartoon caricatures. But the way they are animated is amusing and fun. But it is the controls that make this game. You really feel like you are busting when you have to point the wiimote at the ghost, then pull them in the direction indicated by the onscreen arrows, and then finally into the trap. The actualy trapping of the ghost works better in this version. While the 360 version sounds and looks better, the Wii vision really makes you feel like you're busting ghosts.

So my advice to you, if you own both systems, is to play the 360 one first to enjoy the story and the feeling of being part of a movie. Then pop in the Wii version to really feel like you're ghostbusting.

And of course, if you only own the Wii, if you are a GB fan it is a no-brainer!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who you gonna call? Well you know who... June 16, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ghostbusters: The Video Game for the Wii, is a great game in its own right. Unique in that it's not like the more graphically intense PS3 and Xbox 360 versions but still will have the same Ghostbusters (Widescreen Edition) familiarity from start to finish. As long as you can mentally get past the more cartoonish look of the game over the others, you really can't go wrong here.

The game itself takes place 2 years after the events of the movie Ghostbusters 2 (Widescreen Edition), where you are a new recruit that the four regular Ghostbusters (Peter, Egon, Ray and Winston) are training due to increased business in the city as far as ghost hunting goes. And of course that is where we the player come in as we take on the role of said recruit. We get to follow along with our favorite ghostbusters as they visit some familiar haunts from the two movies as well as face some familiar old ghouls and ghosts and monsters like Slimer and Stay Puft to name a few.

The best part of the game is that it truly will put you right into the Ghostbusters situation as if you were part of the movie. You jump right into the swing of things. You and your proton pack ready to go , traps a ready as well and you just fire away able to hit anything and everything. And I mean anything. If your proton beams hit something, it most likely will cause it to break and explode before your eyes.

All the original voice talents return, even Janine the secretary doing her usual unemotional banter. The rest of the guys sounding great even 25 years later. The references and nods to the movies also are another nice touch.

3.0 out of 5 stars A short but entertaining guilty pleasure June 20, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Ghostbusters is not a great game, but it is pretty darn good. I would best describe it as a "guilty pleasure game." The game is supposed to be a 3rd movie in the series, of sorts, much like the 360 versions. I have also played a few parts of the 360 version and have watched my roommate play it for several hours. Both versions of the game are full of fan-service collectibles, gadgets, and dialogue. Familiar faces and places are present throughout the game. Just a bit of a disclaimer: Parts of my review will directly compare and contrast my opinions and observations between the two different versions of the game, so this review isn't purely about the Wii version.

PROS:
+++ Great aiming controls
+++ Decent story with classic Ghostbusters humor
+++ Fun game engine that allows for a lot of destruction
+++ Functional and responsive pointer and motion controls that don't feel gimmicky

CONS:
--- Love it or hate it graphics
--- Frequent interruptions from pickups and cutscenes
--- Ghost capturing mini-game kills the flow and takes too long
--- Some awkward and uncomfortable placement of some of the controls
--- Very linear gameplay. Almost no exploration is required to complete the game.

PRESENTATION: The menus and game interface are decent, but I honestly feel that the 360/PS3 versions have better menu controls. It's a picky complaint, but the Wii version's menus seem to get in the way of things. Lip syncing for voices is also kind of off at times. One thing I do prefer about the Wii version over the 360 version is the on-screen HUD that shows your health and heat meter. In the 360, the meters are displayed on your character's pack, much like how health and stasis were handled in Dead Space.
