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.

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!

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.

My son loves this. He loves all things Ghostbusters. Has the lego car and people, and watches the 2 movies constantly, runs around pretending to be a Ghostbuster... so this was perfect for him. All the reviews are spot-on... but for us, the game play is just long enough... as long as you play "casual" it's easy enough for my son to play and beat (Professional was insane tho, we just got 1 shotted all the time... we're not pros)..
It's true Rarely a ghost might get "caught" in a scene and you have to restart your mission... and another "con" is well, how you only get 1 save... and as they say, you dont want to start a new campaign or all your data will be erased... also, sometimes when you buy an upgrade, it doesnt save it... and you have to buy it again... and again and again... but it's "alright" because you make more money all the time to. We just havent found a way to make all our upgrades stay permanently. Anyway.. really fun game... for anyone who wants to pretend to be a ghostbuster. Oh and it's like a mini movie too! Tons of cut scenes with talking... just like another movie... hilarious stuff.. Really cool that they did that.
