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.
I may be biased because I grew up with the Ghostbusters, but I feel that Atari and Terminal Reality did a great job with the franchise. You actually feel as though you're a member of the crew and firing proton streams at spooks, specters, and ghosts is one of the most enjoyable things I can think of.
Now the game does have its flaws. You can only do one career at a time (a game like GTA allowed you eight different saves and that was on the PS2). Speaking of, this is a strictly linear title, so don't buy this game with the expectation of being able to cruise Manhattan in the Ecto-1. There are also some glitches I encountered in later play-throughs where sometimes NPCs get stuck (Come in, Ray!) and you have to either shoot them with a proton stream or reload your last checkpoint to continue.
Basically this is the third movie that everyone's been waiting for and if you love Ghostbusters, you will love this game.
Being the new Ghostbuster is like a dream come true. The game is a fun bit of nostalgia. I wish every licensed game was handled this well. That being said, it's not perfect. There could be a bit more variety to the action. I would say this is like a third and fourth movie with a bunch of interactivity. This isn't one of those games that just plays cutscenes forever, but if you play it with the movie mindset you'll enjoy it more. As a game, there needs to be more. As a movie, you get way more time than a typical film would allow to be a part of this world. I haven't finished the game yet - stuck in the sewers... argh! but it would be great to drive the Ecto-1 some before the adventure ends. I feel like this game could be a reboot for the franchise and there could be a sequel made for this game. It would have to be a better game though, and would have to appeal to gamers who will want to play it and then go back and watch the movies. Episodes IV-VI were the best Star Wars films, so who knows?
The only change I'd really liked to have seen would be to make the game longer. I simply wasn't ready for it to end. Mr. Harold Ramis and Mr. Dan Aykroyd did a fantastic job on the script for this game - it looks and feels like a Ghostbusters film in nearly every way. And both of those gentlemen, along with Mr. Bill Murray, Mr. Ernie Hudson, Ms. Annie Potts and Mr. William Atherton all did fantastic jobs, in my opinion, of reprising their film roles for the game in some top-notch voice talent. Overall, I'd highly recommend "Ghostbusters: The Video Game" to any fan of the films or to anyone who wants a good game to play or to anyone who just wants a laugh.
