Rated 4 out of 10 by thanks artari for killing my nite dont sell it unless it works
I was very excited about the release of ghostbusters, im not an avid gamer but i have palyed every system and the graphics were def what i was exspecting it to be for the ps2 the storyline was funny and the game play wasnt that bad at all. However iam very dissapointed about all of the bugs that are in the graphics of the game. I have exsperienced several freezes whlie playing one of which happenes in the grave yard level in the same spot which has prevented me from finishing the game. This game has had several release dates and i would have rather waited another six months for a quality working product then what atari has put out. I would recomend the game for other systems my friends have told me its awesome but i do not recomend u waist your money on the ps2 version. Atari really should have made sure they were selling a top of the line quality product or should have just not made it for the ps2 at all as far as im concerned i am taking it back to gamestop tomarrow to trade it for something that is worth playing.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Metal Junkie 666 Not so great.
Ghostbusters for the PS2 is one of the worst games I've ever played. I would not even reccommend this game to Fanboys of the series! The game is basically a scavenger hunt. Trap a ghost, scan, repeat. That's about it. The controls are horrible. They should of made L1 and R1 the default main weapon buttons in this game. The controls are not responsive at all. It takes about a second and a half to fire. My copy of the game makes it impossible to finish puzzles. The graphics are pathetic. How can you make the 360 and PS3 versions look so real and this version so bad. Think about it. The levels are pretty shotr if you ask me. Levels that take 5 to 8 minutes are not really levels at all. I play game that take maybe an hour to beat, and still not get everything! The sound is not something to hype yourself about. It's just plain BAD! The storyline is simple. You are with the Ghostbusters carrying the most dangerous equipment. The weapons aren't even effective. Stay away from this game and spend your money on something worth while, like Halo 3.
Rated 5 out of 10 by vaver09 Great Game, but its not worth it
Being a long time Ghostbusters fan i really looked forward to the game, the fact that its the first game of its kind to come out in a long time. I only own a Ps2 cause its awesome!. So when i found its was out for it, i ran to the store and rented it, cause i didnt know if it was a buy game. Right away i noticed the same actors from the movie in the game which is a big plus one, and your a ghostbuster whats not cool about that! BUT before i even actually started capturing ghost the game froze! good thing the game has autosave other wise alot of people would be mad! then an our later the game froze again, mad about what happened i found that freezing is a big bug that i guess is normal? for the ps2 version of the game.... But the game does good graphics it may not look like the PS3 version but who cares, the story is the best part about the whole game! ive played it for alittle over 3 hours and its not bad, but it kept freezing, and i was getting upset. good thing i rented it and not bought it! so i would recommend people to rent this game and not buy it cause there isnt much replay value after you beat it!
Rated 8 out of 10 by gamebusterrr123 Overall Good Ghostbuster Fan Game
I was deciding whether or not to get this game because of all the talk about crashes and slow load screens and overall disappointment but after i bought it and played it i totally changed my mind and was glad i got it. Im a ghostbuster fan and i enjoyed the game, sure the load screens were a bit long but you can get around that? Go to the bathroom, go grab a snack. The load times arent that bad and isnt a good enough reason to not get it. Ok now with the crashes, i havent beat the game yet but its only crashed about twice? It has autosave which covers you if it does, and its not a big deal. Just restart the system and start playing again. Now with the positive, it has pretty easy controls and catching the ghosts is pretty fun and easy. Just weaken them, wrangle them around and throw the trap. I think the fun part about the game is that you get to smash up everything you can lay your eye on and it adds up the cost of all the damage you made during the level - kind of like points? I think the cutscenes are pretty funny and its all the ghostbuster you can expect? With the cast and old foes. I give this game a thumbs up and you should definitely give it a try.
Rated 10 out of 10 by elewis92 Great game, even for the PS2
I pre-ordered this game a few months ago, and the release date kept changing; but it was worth the wait. To be honest, this is one of the best games I have ever played. the graphics and the action sequences were amazing. It was kind of like an actual sequel to the movies. The use of the likeliness and voices of the original cast (excluding Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver) was also a good touch to bring out realism to the game. However during a part of the game, it froze on me. However that wasn't a problem since I had saved the level that I had froze on. Besides that, the game itself was also funny, especially when the characters are covered in slime or marshmallow droppings. I laughed so hard, That I almost started crying. That's all I have to say about "Ghostbusters: The Video Game" for the PS2.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Richard Perkins Ghostbusters
I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan. I own the 2 disc collectors set, and could recite almost, if not every, line from the movie. Yeah I'm a nerd. Even so, I don't own any of the newer consoles. I'm what you'd call a "retro gamer. I own a lot of older systems such as an NES, Sega, and so on. I do however have a PS2. I'm happy that the newer games still come out for the PS2. Though the graphics might not be quite as sharp, the game itself will be the same. This being said, I'm going to get this game for the PS2. This week I'm going to pre-order the game from my local gamestop. I'm very pleased that all the voice over work is authentic form the original actors, and the storyline looks great. The trailers make this game look amazing. I can't wait for this game. Ghostbusters rule
Rated 7 out of 10 by Marvel vs capcom master Technical Problems
FIrst off, I wanted to say that this game is really fun. It feels just like your in the Ghostbusters Movies. THe problem is that the game has a lot of techinal issues. The game has crashed 7 times and their is lots of slowdown in the cutscenes and sometimes the sound drops out. When the sound is going it ussually does not match the characters mouthes. The actual game is very fun. For Ghostbusters fans the game is like a 3rd movie. You can use most of the weapons from the movie plus some new ones. The graphics look childish compared to the other systems but it looks good for a cartoon.The story is funny and your laughing most of the game which is always a plus. Overall the actual game is very good but it is disapointing to see that it has this many bugs.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shellshocked203 Who Ya Gonna Call?
I was skeptical at first but this game turned out to be a masterpiece, The story was great and its also got great sound and gameplay, Ghostbusters is better than ever even though the graphics are pretty mediocre. that's all i can say that's ALMOST negative about this game. this is a masterpiece plain and simple you get to catch ghosts use the P.K.E Meter its got everything I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!
Rated 0 out of 10 by aytunstopable Woa Wow Nice
Well just judging from the video, I never buy games based off movies. There are three that I am gonna buy, and this is one of them. I've been waiting for a good game based off a movie that doesn't necessarily follow the story from the movie. What a better way than to have Ghostbusters one of my favorite all time movies. I am definitely gonna buy this game. Can't wait til it comes out!!!
