If you remember hearing all the hype about the Ghostbusters game prior to its release, and then losing interest when it began to sink into ignoble obscurity, you'd be surprised by how good it is. Unlike so many videogame spin-offs which seem only interested in trying to milk more money out of some classic franchise, Ghostbusters is a surprisingly credible effort which manages to retain much of the charm of the classic 80’s movies. This is perhaps not so surprising when you consider that the game contains authentic voiceovers from many of the original cast – including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson – and a script penned by the original writers.
The game sees game sees the player assuming the role of a rookie who’s just been recruited into the squad, and must help the Ghostbusters defeat some of the series’ most iconic baddies (like the Stay Puft Marshmellow man) and of course a few new ones. The gameplay is enjoyable, especially when firing the classic proton pack – which has four different modes – and grappling with various ghostly apparitions like they were writhing bass on a fishing game. The gameplay also provides some satisfying puzzle challenges which help keep you going through the ghost fights (which can get somewhat repetitive). And overall, unlike so many adaptations, Ghostbusters: The Game actually manages to live up to its epic source material.
