Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I should inform you that this review is incredibly biased. I'm a Ghostbuster junkie; I can't get enough of `em. I grew up with the Ghostbusters movies, cartoons, toys, and the crappy 8-bit video games. I loved every bit of it--even the terrible games. Even so, I was a bit skeptical of developer Terminal Reality's attempt to revive the Ghostbusters franchise. How could a video game capture what Terminal Reality promised: a third movie in video game form?

I'm happy to report that Ghostbusters the Video Game is precisely that: a playable Ghostbusters 3 for your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. It's got everything you'd want in a new movie: ghosts, spooky visuals, great music, and the full Ghostbusters cast (with two exceptions, which I'll note later). If you've been dreaming of a new Ghostbusters movie, you can't do much better than this for the time being.

If however you're hoping for a fun gameplay experience, you might be a bit disappointed. Ghostbusters contains one of the neatest but wonkiest combat control schemes in gaming history. Players, taking on the role of a new recruit to the expanding Ghostbusters team, get to strap on a proton pack and blast, freeze, and slime all manner of spectral enemies, just like in the movies but with a few new additions, such as the Stasis Stream (freeze ray) and Meson Collider (kind of like short bursts from an assault rifle). Players will need everything at their disposal to make through the rather short but often difficult story mode.

What makes the game so difficult at times is the chaotic mess that results in every ghostly encounter. There unfortunately is never just one ghost. Two, three, or more show up on each occasion, each needing wrangling, slamming, and eventual dunking into a trap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A good Ghostbusters game! June 26, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I was about 7 years old when the Ghostbusters were at their peak. Ghostbusters toys were every where, GB cartoons, GB cereal, video games, etc. I played the old Ghostbusters game as a kid and man, it left so much to be desired. A million years later, I heard that it was going to be released on the 360. I caught a glimpse of the game play footage and my jaw dropped. This is the Ghostbusters game that I always wanted to play! Ghostbusters fans, you won't be disappointed! You actually get to catch and trap ghosts. You also get to use the PKE ghost meter. The game has tight and neat graphics, too! My friends, who also grew up during the Ghostbusters era, were impressed with the game. Overall, a fun game and can't get enough of that awesome proton gun sound blasting through my loud sound system! No, the game is not perfect and it can't compete with games that are at the top. However, it's a god send for us GB fans. I hope they come out with a second one.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is For All Ghostbusters Fans Everywhere!! June 16, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally, after years of being a fan and waiting for another possible movie, all I wanted was another Ghostbusters experience to bring me right back to my childhood.

And did they ever deliver!!!

This game is everything any fan has ever wanted out of the Ghostbusters franchise!!

In the beginning of the game, as you go through the tutorial, the moment you pull the trigger to use the proton pack for the first time, it sends shivers down your spine and you find yourself just running around shooting at inanimate objects because the thrill of actually using the proton pack is amazing!!

The game has a wonderful story line of you being the new rookie joining the Ghostbusters, and you get to be the guinea-pig to test out their newest upgrades and modifications to the proton pack.

There are many different locations in the game including: the Ghostbusters HQ (which you can explore!), the Sedgwick Hotel and Central Park to name a few.

The voice acting is dead on! You really get the sense that all the original actors really started feeling the Ghostbusters-vibe again, because their performances are magnificent! You really feel like you ARE the newest member of the Ghostbusters! Also, there is constant banter between all the member of the Ghostbusters throughout the missions, and it gives a great sense of realism throughout! Some of their banter is pretty funny too.

Gameplay is excellent. The control scheme is laid out well on the 360 controller, and movement is fluid and smooth. There where a couple of times that I got stuck on something really dumb, like a table, but I just busted out my proton blaster and blew it up to get it out of my way!

4.0 out of 5 stars Are We in the Containment Unit? December 8, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember playing the original Ghostbusters Activision game for the Atari 800 back in 1984. Repetitive, clunky, and featuring an out-of-place driving mini-game, my brother and I actually enjoyed playing it. After that game, it was all downhill for the Ghostbusters gaming franchise. Until now.

This new Ghostbusters game is an instructive way of immersing a player in the movie experience. The majority of the voice actors are back. The plot is directly tied to the first two movies. You get to play a rookie Ghostbuster and the proton packs are accurately replicated down to the slightest detail - the music is straight from the film, the sound effects are exactly the same, and the special effects of the twisty, winding proton streams are perfectly captured. Ghostbusters even features a nod to modern gaming tropes, like "venting" weapons so that they cool down before firing. That's the good news.

Setting aside the Ghostbusters content, the game comes up a short. Playing Ghostbusters is like playing on a movie soundstage: you can only go where the set is built. Although there's the illusion of freedom from the first- or third-person perspective, there's really not much to actually do. The characters have a shiny, plastic look and the lip-syncing is awful. There are half-hearted attempts to round out the content: collectible artifacts that echo creepy noises, equipment upgrades, and the bizarre ability to drink from water fountains. But none of this really affects game play - the artifacts are set dressing, you will be able to afford every equipment upgrade by the end of the game, and drinking from water fountains nets you an achievement.

Least forgivable is the lack of a co-op mode for the campaign.
