Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Ghostbusters have a new thrill!! This game is a great game. It starts as you being the new ghostbuster and you get to go trap ghosts. You go through many adventures trapping ghosts. You even get to trap some of the original ghosts like Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man. It is a thrilling game and I recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun I know wii has bad graphics, but come on. Luckily for Atari, what this game lacks in for grapics, it makes up for with the controles. Thanks to the wii controller, the terrible controls on xbox and ps3 have been fixed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from who are ya gonna call!!!!!! This game is just simply great. This game makes you feel like you are really busting the ghost. I usually play with my bro and it makes it even better so i recommend co-op. You get to use the normal stream, a slime blower,p.k.e. meter and goggles. i like the ghostbusters cartoon,game and theme song. it is also a good price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ghostbuster Awesomeness Excellent game play. Great story line that follows the movies really well. Challenging! Was hard to put controller down! Graphics are great for what they are. Might be a little cartoony, however, I found to be brighter and richer than X-Box.... meaning that you can see what you are doing when in the darkest rooms and areas. Loved the new weapons you get to "test". Over all Ghostbuster Awesomeness! Good for anyone that loved the movies!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from who you gonna call? This is Ghostbusters at its best. The story is the best thing about the game it really feels like a Ghostbusters 3. The sound is perfection because of the real cast of the films doing the voices of the characters and the extremely realistic proton pack sounds. This really does deliver the full Ghostbusters experience. I was worried at first that I would not like this version of the game because of the more cartoonish graphics than the ps3 and 360 versions but I now have nothing to worry about and neither do you the graphics fit the game just fine no problem. This is definitely a game to pick up if your a Ghostbusters fan or are just into ghost kind of things or just having a good time this game is for everyone. I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! This is one of the best games that I have bought for my Wii. I bought it based on the advice of a GameStop associate. He is about the same age as I and we grew up with the Ghostbusters. This game keeps up with the quality of the original movies. The ghost are just as cheezy as the movie ghost, however that is part of the charm. It was really funny fighting the "STAY PUFT" marshmellow man My three year old loves to watch me play. She likes to shake the nunchuck and get the slime off. I do not like playing the two player mode however. It is difficult to locate your target(esp. if they are on the celing) and you sometimes get confused and slime your partners. One player mode is the best. I would recommend to anyone to try this game. It is better if you grew up with the original movies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ghostbuster Realism! This game is designed to give you the feel of actually using ghost buster equipment to blast away and trap ghosts. You use you wii remote to point and shoot at ghosts and wear them down, and after wards you have to follow the directions on the screen to bash the ghost stuck in your stream to weaken them so you can trap them. There are other equipment you can use and it is easily switchable on the wii remote so you have total control. The graphics are made in a pretty cartoon fashion and are fun to watch and well in real life people don't look exactly the same after 25 years. The bottom line is although the characters are of a cartoon style fashion the original cast is still there do the voice overs and the game revisits old and new ghosts such as the stay puff marshmallow man, the gray lady, the spider witch, and much more, this game still has all the action and adventure and personality that we all expect from a ghost busters film just in a video game. Also wanted to add that there is a co-op option before you start any mission or stage so you can take a friend and split screen the fun of being two rookie ghostbusters.
