Ok so a major Ghostbusters fan here. I have had this pre ordered for some time now and it came today 6/17. I am about an hour into it and am loving it. I like that RedFly did not try to make a lower quality version for the Wii. Would I like to have the more realistic looking people yes and no. You totally forget about it once the character voice acting starts and you get into the story. Their are so many great throwbacks to the movies. I mean come on even Vigo the Carpatheians painting is sitting in the containment chamber. woo hoo.. With being an hour into the game on easy it says I have completed 14% of it so many more fun hours to come. I do like the control it is very much like Metroid Corruption so if you were ok with that then this will be fine for you. The music is pulled straight from the first soundtrack and really works well. I am glad I bought this one Wii and am actually playing for fun and to see how the story goes. Now if I can lose a few pounds to get into that free shirt that came with it. yippie.

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.

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. WHO YOU GONNA CALL? answer: YOUR LOCAL VIDEO GAME STORE!
Rated 10 out of 10 by southern hope76 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 7 out of 10 by Neighborhood Weatherman Not bad for an avid Ghostbusters fan...
The game itself is fun. The Wii is the only system out there that can make you feel like you are using the proton pack. Unfortunately, the Wii version is different from the other systems: shorter story line, cartoonish characters, less weapons and side quests. Supposedly, Nintendo is coming out with a proton pack controller insert similar to the guns you see for first person shooter games. Controls are simple, missions are co-op capable. If you spend a good afternoon, you can beat the game. Overall game play is simple and fun. Don't expect too much from the Wii version though. If you want more of a challenge and detailed game graphics, stick to PC, xBox 360, or PS3. I think I'll keep my Wii game for fun, but get the PC version to satisfy the more hardcore gamer within me.
Rated 0 out of 10 by cranberly Great graphics...for Xbox or Playstation
I am uber-excited about this game. Unfortunately, the graphics shown in the trailer are not the Wii graphics. The Wii version looks much more cartoonish. You can check out the Wii version at Game Spot. I am disappointed that Game Stop is using the Xbox trailer to advertise the Wii version, as they are very different looking. I would hate for Wii game purchasers to be surprised when they get theirs. Perhaps Game Stop should show the Wii Ghostbusters trailer for the Wii version too?

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 0 out of 10 by cjh Better looking
I saw the previews for this a while back, and it looked very cartoonish. This version looks so much better. It looks more realistic. It seems more like a video game than a movie where you get to play sometimes, while still retaining a good-sounding storyline. It seems less like a crappie videogame based on a movie, and more like an original story with 2 great back stories.

Ive been waiting for this game since the first time I read about it. (a while ago) None of my friends think it will be good, but I have faith on my side.It's even got dan akroyd and Bill Murray in it. With slimer and all the good charactars from the old movie, and some new ones. It's gunna be great. "It's the stay puft marshmellow man"

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!
