I have, until now, never seen a game where the entire game being good or bad hinged on a certain section of a certain level. Don't get me wrong, the game up until that point is barely a borderline 5/10 as it is. I tried the demo and thought well the mixed reviews are probably just fanboys hating on it. Turns out the demo is the only good thing about the game. After level 6 it goes downhill bad. This game is sooooo generic. Painfully bad graphics, animations, and the weapons are horrible. There are no hit indicators when you shoot something or it hits you other than your lifebars decreasing. That's it. The beam is good but the yellow wave weapon is bad and the blue single shot weapon is god awful. So the part where this game finally got a quit/uninstall for me was the graveyard, around level 8 or maybe it was 9. The levels are all recycled by the way. You revisit levels throughout the whole game. So in a certain section in that level it swarms you with blue flyers and yellow ground things and you can't move to the edges or yellow hands will down you. It is probably the hardest part of any game I have ever played. I tried probably 30-40 times for an hour then by luck got to the next section. The next section was the same ♥♥♥♥ing thing: getting downed quickly then the rest of the team gets wiped out. I have seen the game over screen in this game more than any game I have ever played. I don't care who you are, you are going to get downed over, and over, and over again. In laters levels, good luck ever getting picked up by your teammates. They do way less dmg to enemies than you do and if there are enemies on screen while you are down they most of the time won't pick you up. They can't anyway because one hit stops the pickup bar and thats it, they are basically dead by getting swarmed.

I have never seen the difficulty spike so fast in any game, ever. If you had 4 real people playing that level might be doable. Might be. This may be the hardest game I have ever played and for all the wrong reasons. All of them.

Crushingly generic, without the difficulty spikes into nearly impossible sections without 3 other human players, this game would barely get a 6/10 from me, maybe a 5.5. With those problems considered, it lowers the score for this horrible piece of ♥♥♥♥ down to a 4/10. Pass on this even if it is free.

Poorly executed top down shooter, painfully linear and perhaps the most difficult game on steam, and that isn't something to be proud of. This could have been a very good game if the game had more development time and some patches, if it was more of an RPG style shooter, or if the money you earn could actually be spent on weapon upgrades then it would be so much better.

The A.I is terrible, you don't get nearly enough health before being downed and then it takes far to long to be rescued, on boss fights its pretty much 'game over' and you'll have to start the entire boss fight from scratch resulting in a signficant amount of frustration. This game desperately needed online co-op to have any form of success.

Its far too linear for its own good, often revisiting the same location with newer and tougher ghosts to kill, the end of level bosses are exceptionally frustrating and take waay waay too long to weaken, all the time the boss can easily one shot you and your entire team leading to more game over screens - get used to seeing those game over screens by the way, it happens way too often.

The only saving grace and I mean this scarcastically, is the Ghostbusters comic book style story, and the original Ghostbusters soundtrack - - thats its, the actually gameplay is very poor. I don't recommend this game unless its part of a sale or bundle.

The rendition of the Ghostbusters Theme Song on the menu screen is the best thing this game has going for it.

Tedious top-down shooter with a Ghostbusters skin slapped on it.

Even as a massive fan of the source material, I couldn't recommend this to anyone.

The game is called Ghostbusters but none of the ghostbusters from the movie are in this game, there are cartoons with different groups of ghostbusters, the movies, and even comics with other groups of ghostbusters. In this game you get NONE of those you get four new generically designed politically correct multiculture pals to play with. The ghosts repeat themselves, the bellhop ghost makes sense in the hotel level, but what is it doing in the Sewers, or in a sanitarium? The game feels like its made by third graders, or some comp sci project for an undergrad more than an actual game.

The core mechanic of the game revolves around shooting different colored beams at different colored enemies. This would be interesting except when all those colors are on screen at once, making the core game mechanic annoying. No patch, and no bug fix will fix the core game mechanic of the game being annoying. But hey the game has a high score counter! in fact your not allowed to finish a mission until you smack the keyboard entering random letters to show off your high score. Must be made by devs who worked on old atari games because I guess they never got the memo that high scores dont matter in modern games.

Who ya gonna call? Not these clowns...

The Ghostbusters are overworked, therefore they have to hire some rookies. Those rookies battle a supernatural menace in the form of an ancient demon who comes back to life, bringing with him to New York City hundreds of ghosts.
The tasks are always the same. Walk into a room, get locked into said room and defeat ghosts - repeat. The mechanics are incredibly broken, the AI is terrible and the mission structure is incredibly backwards.
Graphically, Sanctum of Slime is acceptable but unimpressive. All the items on the screen, from the Ghostbusters to the enemies to the environment, are well-drawn and colorful, but there isn't a whole lot of personality, detail, or realism to the art style.
The sound does not fare much better. The lack of voice acting hurts and the music is repetitive and not memorable. The only good thing, however, is that the original theme song is included.
Sanctum of Slime is a real bad game. If you want to enjoy a good Ghostbusters game you better should check out Ghostbusters: The Videogame. Sanctum of Slime is a sloppy and poorly designed game that looks generations behind where we are now and it is not worth to buy.

Sounds 2/10
Graphics 4/10
Gameplay 2/10
Atmosphere 1/10
