My favorite (and almost only) Ghostbusters game, it has literally everything a Ghostbusters video-game was supposed to have:
  • The original cast from the movie.
  • The original voice-actors.
  • Amazing level design.
  • Original story sequel.
  • Collectibles, upgrades and challenges.
  • Funny paced scenario.
  • Some horror games features. (such as jumpscares)
  • The game is designed to put you in the skin of a ghostbuster.
The game was created for every Ghostbusters fan to enjoy it's best, it follows the story written by the same directors of the movies stories, making it the Ghostbusters 3 in form of video-game, stupidly well-made for a 2009 game.

It's a shame that the company that made this game was shutdown, but at least they left for us to enjoy surely the best Ghostbusters game that you can find and even with a good price. Strongly Recommended!

I just beat the game, 4ish hours total. And boy oh boy, were those 4 hours the 4 possible best hours of my life! it was everything I thought it would be and more! It was EXTREMELY atmosphereic, I honestly nearly wimped out a couple of times at certain parts; it had the same humor that made me fall in love with the movies, a very well thought out plot, smooth, clean, fun gameplay. And overall an amazing expierience! I can definitely see why people are calling this 'the third movie we never got', and I honestly agree with them %100!

I have played this game like no other on 360 and I have to say
THIS IS THE BEST LICENSED GAME EVER!
I dont have enough praise to give this game from having the original
actors doing the voices, to the third person shooting mechanics.
to having Dan Akroid and Harold Ramis(RIP) writing the story how
can you go wrong.
The only thing I'm just a little upset with this game because I was planning
on gifting it to friends is no online multiplayer which is sad.

As a fan of the original Ghostbusters, I wanted to like this. I wanted to relish in it. That's too bad. The music, sound effects, and visual authenticity are essentially the only graces of this particular experience.

The gameplay itself was fun up to a point. At first it felt novel and exciting. Like I had stepped into the film itself. Then, slowly but surely, it became repetitive and bland, to the point where I no longer felt obliged to complete the game.

The AI busters were utterly useless on most occasions, and the jokes being constantly propagated forth served as faint glimmers of the quality of the humor held in the film franchise. Most of the time, the quips the characters were sputtering felt stale and lifeless. The worst example by far being the characterization of Bill Murray, who's a constant ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and a creep to the women of the game world.

I'd say if you have to, buy it when it's $1-4, and only if you're a big fan.
