Easy gameplay, hours of competitive fun.

My sons (5 & 2.5) and I LOVE this game. It's almost like a video game brought to life.
There are 3 speed settings, and all 3 provide a good game.
There are only two pieces to this game--Johnny (with his feet attached) and the gun. The first player takes a turn, the rounds ends, and the score is shown on the gun. Then the next player takes a turn. You can have an endless number of players. You can also play this game solo, trying to beat your own high score each time.
Since there are only 2 lightweight parts, this game is highly portable.
The game (gun) has sound effects, but they are not too loud or obnoxious.
The game box has a plastic "window," but could still be used to store the game. Johnny--the little skeleton dude--is also cute enough to set out on a shelf.
Biggest Pros: The room doesn't have to be completely dark to play. The darker it is, the easier it will be to see the ghosts, though. (It's also more difficult to see where Johnny is looking, making the ghosts harder to find.)
The room doesn't have to be completely clear to play. In fact "obstacles" like floor lamps and other people just give the ghosts more places to hang out. (They will also be different sizes. Ooooh--spooky.)
Biggest Cons: The feet fall off a lot. They aren't needed for game play. They also don't take up much room. We will probably glue them in place when we find them, (They are both lost right now because they kept falling off the body!)
Our ghost has a weird spot on him. (On his "cheek.") The kids don't mind, but it bugs me.
The score is difficult to read. You need to angle to gun just right, or you will see a different number or gibberish lines.
Bottom Line: Overall, this is a simple yet terrific game. My mini "Ghost Busters" love it, and many times will keep playing until I tell them it's time to move on to something else. We have had the game for almost 2 months, and the fun is still there as much as day 1.
