Ghostbusters: The Video Game, based on the smash hit motion picture franchise and featuring a completely new story, is coming to six game systems in 2009. Coinciding with the 25th anniversary celebration of the film's original theatrical release, the game reunites original cast members to recapture the unique blend of humour and fright that established Ghostbusters as a pop culture sensation. Penned by original Ghostbusters writers Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd, Ghostbusters: The Video Game brings members of the original cast together for the first time in 20 years. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson lend their voices and in-game likenesses to the original story set two years after Ghostbusters II, with Manhattan once again overrun by ghosts and supernatural forces. Players will have the chance to chase, attack, and catch ghosts in a funny and frightening battle to save New York from its latest supernatural plague.

THIS GAME SUCKS!I purchased this game because I thought it would be good to play with my kids. It ended up scaring them to death. It also sucks in actual gameplay.

So i picked it up todayWell ive put about 3 hours into it today, and I really like it. They brought the classic theme song back which is great, and the graphics while they're not the greatest, they get the job done so i dont have any complaints on them. I have only two complaints so far. One is that trapping the ghost is way to easy. Im hoping it gets harder later in the game, for those of you that are pretty far into the game, does it get any harder? My second complaint is my biggest, and that is the Ecto-1. The controls for this are horrible. The capturing aspect of it isnt bad, but the actual driving around town in it really gets annoying. It may just be me but I cant stand how the car handles.These are really my only two complaints. I am really enjoying the game though. It was well worth the $**. If you can look over some of the flawed aspects of the game then it is defiantly worth the money for the game. Its one of the best ds games that I have played lately and I defiantly recomend it.
