Who ya gonna call Ghostbusters of course. Okay so the game has come out and finally we all have something to play again. The game in and of it self is pretty fun, I was really worried about the title but I became more an more excited as the released date came near. So I went to a local gamestop store and reserved a copy, & finally got to play it today and it starts out great. I cannot speak all that much on the game but the sound is wonderful, graphics are good not great, story is great and really could have been the third ghostbuster film, yes it is that good I think anyways. Only thing I am not crazy about is that the controls sometimes get in your way more than the help you and you are constantly having to save your other fellow Ghostbusters an I thought you were the rookie in the game hmmm ??? Interesting is it not.... To any event let us not split hairs other than the controls the game itself is really good and worth a buy. Please if you grew up with the films and the animated series that followed you will love this title. Buy a copy today !!!

I have been playing video games for a really long time now and do remember the NES Ghostbusters game. Do not judge this game because it is a Ghostbusters game and you remember the horrible NES version. For a long time now I have been loosing my flair for video games. One can save so many worlds, fight in fighting games with the same type of button mashing, and hear the same story line so many times in your life. I was getting sick and tired of these same old games, just with better graphics. Then you have those games that totally rack your brain because they are way too complicated and need an associates degree of that game just to play the thing. This game was very enjoyable and could play over and over again, just like watching the movies. You get a fun Ghostbusters movie along with it being interactive. What better offer is there? I can only think of one thing that would be even better; if the made more of these games! Now, if they only made more games from my childhood like: Thundercats, Voltron, and He-Man and made them as good as this game!
Rated 9 out of 10 by AbsoluteZero14 Very Impressive
I got this game thinking it wasn't going to be as great as other action games, but unlike my expectations this game turned out to be great. This is a must-get for anyone who is a fan of the series. It shows the likeness and personalities of the original cast of Ghostbusters. The story was one of the greatest aspects of the game. The controls are fast and easy to learn. An example of the functional gameplay is when you grapple ghosts with your proton stream into the ghost traps. The developers of this game made it into a very exciting experience to catch ghosts within the game. Another great part of the game is the ability to upgrade your weaponry. Even the online mode, I thought wasn't going to be that great, but yet again I was surprised by the capabilities of this great game. If you are looking for a great action game and like the original Ghostbusters series this is a game for you.
Rated 10 out of 10 by tigerfan2k9 well done!
Well i have to say this game was done very well i honestly played for 6 hours nonstop and couldnt get enough of it . first off the graphics are amazing possibly the best looking ps3 game out there to date . the sound and controls are perfect although i would like to have seen an auto lock button for targeting but i will not down it for that . NOT TO OFTEN DOES A GAME live up to the hype but this one does , i m a picky gamer and this game ranks up there , i like it better than bioshock and thats saying alot, hope batman asylum is just as good . so anyone doubting buying this game rest soundly knowing your money was spent wisely because it simply is one of the best games in the last 2 years . its funny how lame the nintendo wii version of the game looks compared to the ps3 its not even in the same ballpark , you wii owners enjoy your mario cause us real gamers will be playing ps3 ghostbusters
Rated 10 out of 10 by TheLoveMAchine A must have for Ghostbustin fans
Ok so i've been waiting for this game for awhile now and finally got it. I must admit i was thinking it was going to be over hyped but it wasnt so that showed a good sign. so i came home and put it in the PS3 and man was i blown away. I mean the Graphics looked so awesome and facial expressions and faces were right on the money. The theme song came on and i was ready to do some ghostbustin. the controls are smooth and fun and the storyline deserves a 15/10 i mean it's great. Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd wrote a good script. I think everything about this game is amazing. I've been a big fan of ghostbusters since i was little from Lunchbox to pajamas to halloween costume (which was last year and was amazing). I would definitely recommend this to any ghostbusters fan regardless of what people say. If you like to ghostbust then BUY BUY BUY!!! i wish it was a real job HAHAHA! no seriously. :)
Rated 8 out of 10 by my name is prince! i ain't a-a-a-afraid no g-g-g-ghost!
not sure if i am a ghostbusters fanboy but i can sure say i really like this game, the controls are solid, even the evade button is pretty nice when caught up in a bind or a pinch! i saw this game [actual game play footage] demoed and had to snag it! i am so glad, too!!! the sound is amazing and the controls are very solid especially when nabbing ghosts and luring them into traps! a nice addition is "venting" the pack and the swoosh sound it produces. . .venting the pack allows the proton pack 2 rapidly cool-down, the visuals are pretty nice, and ambient music and sound effects are a welcome addition. other than that, my only complaint would be the load time intros before each mission, but the cool thing is while loading, they are showing a nice video intro and the music is just revving up. get pumped up, folks! and good haunting, errr. . .uh. . .hunting!
Rated 8 out of 10 by monster expert There's Something Weird and it Don't Look Good
I am a BIG fan of Ghostbusters and always have been so when I heard about this game, I immedietly bought it! It was my first PS3 game to EVER play and I thought it was kind of cool. There are Ups and Downs but overall, it is above average.UPS- Incredible Graphics! It makes you feel like you are actually in the movie! There is an incredible storyline that the creators put together. The ghost looks so real and frightning, sometimes they just pop out at you and scare the heck out of you. The characters look SO real and it has BEASTLY sound! (for all you old folk, Beastly means good)DOWNS- All you can do is walk around with your guy and shoot lasers, you can't even pick anything up. When you jump, you can't jump over spaces (which you usually can't in video games. They do that to make it more challenging.)So it is an awesome game. 8 outta 10.
Rated 9 out of 10 by xBowzA Simply Amazing!
I baught this game today, the day it came out. I was simply in shock in how great the game truly is. The voice acting is done by the original actors and they did a great job there. The graphics are beyond what I thought they would look like, They are outstanding from the shadowing to the glowing affects. I played for 5 hours straight and I was done with only 3 missions. The multiplayer part of the game I didnt get to play much but it good too so far. They captured the great movie and transformed it into one heck of a game with a smooth fun story line, Also there is alot of humor in this game and the actors got their rolls packed down good. I would recommend this game to ANYONE that enjoyed and became a fan of Ghostbusters the movie and to those that arent a fan of Ghostbusters, Once you play this game you will be a fan too.

Okay when i first heard that this game was going to come out i thought to myself, "What a fun game this would be" kind of like a joke. As it neared its release date i suddenly thought that maybe it was one of those things where when dumb companies take something good and ruin it. So I got it yesterday and was amazed by two things. It was playable in 1080p, and it had multiplayer co-op which i found out was a very big part of the game (After you beat story mode) When i finally got to playing it I was amazed how addictive it was (Once you get the hang of it) The quality is amazing, and the gameplay is fun. Not to mention the same personalities from the movie. The best part of ghostbusters is when the guy is furious at the damage, but then the only thing you have to say is "Well there aren't any ghosts."

Great, great, great game!! One of the best ones i have played in a long time and being a true ghostbuster fan it was wonderfull to actually be a part of the team. some things could have been done better and the movement was a little off but what game dont have problems. I mean if this is it than the game did great. storyline was everything to expect plus more and it was just down right fun slamming ghost into the traps. The only thing i could say is get it. it is worth every penny and the game gets you laughing and brings back the good ol days watching the two original movies. The voice acting is just like it was and the cheesy one liners which make it great. the visuals are amazing and the different weapons was fun to play with as well. Sit back and get your faces melted off by the ghostbusters.
