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.
