Graphics are great, yet run DirectX 9 which is old. Expect any modern PC to run this game well.
Sadly, there's no multi-player unlike console ports (but their servers shut down afaik).
Best played with a controller.
Feels like Ghostbusters 3.

This game is flat-out AWESOME! If you are a fan of the movies, then this will push all the right buttons. Also, if you deny the new Ghostbusters movie, but still want a third one that ties in with the originals, then buy this game NOW!

This game is one of my favorites. I love the story and the graphics.This game can really make you feel like a ghostbuster. My only problem with it is that you can't play as any of the origanal ghostbusters.But other wise this game is great and after you catch a ghost it makes you wanna say, we came we saw we kicked its,well you know what I mean.

What a game. It has all the original cast, great fun and unique gameplay, and the excellent writing the franchise is known for. This has been given Aykroyd's blessing as the spiritual third film that never was. They used what was originally going to be the script for a third film and instead created this love letter to fans. Even though it is from 2009 the graphics have aged well. In fact on my GTX1070 I played it at super sampled 4K resolution and it looked very crisp and sharp. Can't recommend it enough!

Very fun game that is perfect as the 3rd ghostbusters story. I will say though that the difficulty varies in very strange areas. Many of the fight segments with multiple basic enemies are significantly more challenging than the majority of the boss battles (the spider witch was confusingly easy). Some of the melee areas, most notably in the graveyard, were ♥♥♥-numbingly annoying. Fighting off the ground-spawning headstone crabs and zombies while avoiding a golem and attempting to catch multiple ghosts in the air was not very enjoyable, nor was the onslaught of kamikaze angels that you had to attempt to attach to a gate 3 times whilst bombarded with flaming arrows and yet more crab-stones. It didn't help that ray, who you are with for that whole segment, adamantly refuses to stop dying, especially when seconds away from resuscitating you. So yeah, it's hard, but the game on the whole has very well designed levels, the gameplay is engaging in that the act of trapping ghosts is genuinely fun, and the story is pretty cool (not to mention its great hearing the original cast again), and it is without question a better game to purchase than the wretch that is the new 2016 game. Also, this one's $10 and the other is $60.

This is the real Ghostbusters 3. I loved it before the reboot film and I love it even more now. R.I.P. Harold Ramis.

Fun game all around. If you're a fan of the (real) Ghostbusters movies, you'll have a blast with this game.
The story is a fun look into what happened after the events of the 2nd movie.
Game play is very similar to a "Gears of War" style.

Closest thing to a 3rd Ghostbuster movie we'll ever get
