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!!
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.Read more ›
+++ 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
--- 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.Read more ›
