Coinciding with the 25th anniversary celebration of the film's original theatrical release, Ghostbusters: The Video 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.

Authentic Ghostbusters Experience: The game features the voices and in-game likenesses of Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson in an original story penned by the writers of the original films Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

    Unique Gameplay: Experience unique ghost hunting, wrangling and trapping with upgradeable weapons in widely destructible environments and large scale boss fights.

      All-New Storyline: Set two years after Ghostbusters II, the game will feature an all-new storyline as the player battles and captures well-loved and brand new ghosts throughout New York.

         Excellent, and why don't you have a read as to why!

        I am surprised at how much I loved this game, purely because I played it on the PC, and it had LOTS of issues running on the PC, so I had to play at minimum resolution. (Yes, that is painful.) I played with an Xbox Controller plugged into my PC, and it actually removed alot of the lag, and made it playable.

        I was hooked to this game from start to finish, I am not an incredibly DIE HARD Ghostbusters fan, but I do love them, and i've always had an interest in them.

        If you're considering buying this game, i'm going to assume you are a Ghostbusters fan, or like them atleast somewhat. If you are, do yourself a favour, buy this game, it's the ORIGINAL Voice actors, and every person / thing / object that you know and love, does make an appearance in this game. It's quite a lengthy game too, I honestly can't remember, but I know for a fact I didn't complete it in one sitting, so it has to be atleast 12 hours plus. Haha.

        You get many cool gadgets, some known to us, alot new, you get a HILARIOUS voice cast that we know and love throughout the movie, they all have their personalities, it isn't a game in the sense that they did anything new, because everything is known to you, you instantly feel WARM and loved by your party.

        Combat is enjoyable, controls are ok, graphics are pretty decent, and the story is ... Ok, but forgettable, its the cast and the scenario's that you will remember.

        If you're not into the Ghostbusters at all, I would still recommend this game, though if you're not in a posistion to throw money at a game you're not sure about, please don't buy it.

        Lastly, if you're a massively girly man when it comes to 'Scary Video Games'... This might make you jump and giggle in fear a few times, as sometimes you are alone, and going around in dark places looking for scary ghosts that will jump out and slime/attack/infilitrate your personal space, does get a bit scary, atleast for me. You do however spend ALOT of your time with some / or all of the cast, which is when you don't feel so nervous.

        So were you awaiting the next Ghost Busters movie, feel like it all ended before you were ready? Then play this, one thing I will say that usually DOES NOT happen with movies being made into games, they do this movie JUSTICE, and it will not be a bad way to end what we know and love, the Ghostbusters.

        Side note, i'm the manliest of manly men in real life, movies, murderous psychopaths, all that is fine, I just cannot handle scary Video Games.

        Buy it.

         Good nostalgia, but a little rough around the edges.

        This game...has really nice graphics, the voice cast from ghostbusters, and will definately keep you entertained.

        But - in my opinion, it's probably worth about 20 notes and no more.

        It has quite a few issues, particularly some cheap attacks that knock you down where you have to wait for one of your fellow ghostbusters to revive you...when this happens, the character ragdolls around and it's like you're puppet's strings are cut...all of a sudden it feels like a cheap game.

        I'd reccomend you try the free demo on Xbox live before purchasing the game, because whilst it is fun, i didn't feel this was a top tier game.

         This was a decent title... six months ago

        Played this on my PS3 when it came out many many months ago and enjoyed it but the experience was very shortlived and there's not much reason to go back to it after finishing, especially now that so many other great titles are coming out at this time of year. It was good for a laugh during the dry summer months though, but those are long past.


         A must for a Ghostbusters Fan

        Trying to be hinest here. Overall the gameplay only warrants a 3-4 star rating - however, if you are a die hard Ghostbusters fan it's a nailed on 5 star. The voices, music, storyline, graphics and locations make for such an enjoyable game play. I do also believe that there is still enough in it for those who do not remember Ghostbusters the first time round!

         Must Buy for Ghostbusters fans!

        If you enjoyed the films then this is a must buy for you. Although the game can be completed quite quickly, its classic "bustin". Trapping ghosts, taking on Mr Stay Pufft, sliming people and roaming round with the original cast. Quality while it lasted and thoroughly enjoyed.
