Amazon.co.uk Review

Usually video game tie-ins are released at the same time as the movie they’re based on. Sometimes there can be short delay--but twenty years is something else. Ghostbusters never seems to age, though, with the new game a real labour of love for the developer.
Not all of the ghosts and locations will be recognisable from the movie
Some ghosts need to be destroyed--not caught
Getting slimed is all part of the fun when you’re a Ghostbuster
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is back for revenge

The game features an all new storyline but still manages to replicate most of the major scenes from the films, including the hotel-room capture of New York library ghost, Slimer, and the attack of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Almost all of the original cast are involved, including all four Ghostbusters, the mayor, and even Walter Peck.

The game itself is mission based and has you catching ghosts with your proton packs and then manoeuvring them into a ghost trap--just like the movie. Whether that’s enough to fill a whole game isn’t clear, but the funny dialogue and celebrity voiceovers should help paper over any cracks.

Key Features
  • Tools of the trade: Use all the same gadgets from the movies, including the iconic proton packs, particle throwers, the ghost-locating PKE meter, and Ecto-goggles.
  • Direct-to-game sequel: Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson all reprise their roles from the first two movies, and Akroyd and Ramis wrote the game's story.
  • Nice day for a drive: Get behind the wheel of the iconic Ecto-1 vehicle from the movie and chase down the faster-moving ghosts.
  • He slimed me: The game features all the most famous ghosts from the first two movies, including Slimer, the terror dogs, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Vigo.
  • New York, New York: The highly detailed environments allow for plenty of collateral damage, as a special counter rates the carnage you’re causing in dollar amounts.
About the Developer: Terminal Reality
Texan developer Terminal Reality first found fame with the PC-based 3D shooter Terminal Velocity in 1995. Since then, this group has created everything from Monster Truck Madness to flight simulator Fly! to the BloodRayne series of vampiric action titles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghostbusters 3 in a game! 1 Jan 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ghostbusters the video game has its faults, its short, a bit clunky in some places with slow down and lip-synch errors, but all this can be ignored because on the plus side, your getting an excellent, enjoyable, brilliant game.
set a few years after the second film you take the role of a new recruit, who is basically a guinea pig for the ghostbusters new equipment, and after a quick tutorial, your thrown into an excellent story, written by the ghostbusters cast! focusing around the occultist Ivo Shandor and his gozer cult (from the first film) the ghostbusters find themselves caught up in a new 'the world is going to end' adventure.
playing with the various proton pack goodies is the core of the game, as you start of with basic proton streams, up to bosun darts and good slime launchers, all of which handle well and destroy tha environment spectacularly! my personal favourite tho is using your PK meter (which puts you in first person) to find hidden cursed artifacts, or to scan ghosts to add to your Tobins spirit guide (another mainstay of the franchise.) which adds to the replay value significantly.
the game also contains many throwbacks and nods to the first two films, aswell as tying everything up, the story itself is really funny and plays out just like a film. the fact that the original cast return to voice the characters really takes it up a notch.
overall, one of my favourite games of 2009, and one that should belong on any gamers shelf, ghostbusters fan or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what i was waiting for 26 Dec 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
ive been waiting for this game for about 3 years when it was first anounced, back when it was a gta sandbox game

and i am not dissapointed

i am a huge ghostbusters fan and this game did not let me down

i got it on christmas day and i love it, anyway, opinions, starting with cons

cons
-the gameplay can be very samey all the time, i can see why people would get board
-sometimes the graphics can be a bit dated
-im not fond of the proton pack upgrades, i tend to use the origional beam

pros
-it is very faithful to ghostbusters, with the same actors, and also it constantly feels like ghostbuster, with the script, ghosts, scenes, you can imagine them in the films, perfect. nothing seems out of place at all.
-the graphics are most of the time beautiful. when your in a dark place like the stay puft part of the game firing your proton pack and catching the ghosts it is an orgy for the eye. im glad it was on ps3 first, because i have not experienced the lag those ps3 playing monkeys complained about.
-the story (of what ive played so far) is excelent, the way they have found ways of bringing back old movies scenes without being exactly the same is wonderful
-blasting ghosts is fun, blasting the scenery and watching it all get destroyed is fun, capturing ghosts is fun and extreamly satisfying

people say it is the same, but what do you expect? they capture ghosts on the film, what do you expect from the game?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game just a little too short. 10 Nov 2009
By I love New York VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Several months after release on the PS3 UK Xbox players finally get a chance to see what all the hype was all about. However many people couldn't wait and those sneaky Americans made there version Region free so many people just ordered the US version instead.

I find the game pretty hard to rate as it is good fun and has excellent Game play and graphics, it's just pretty short, pretty easy and has very little replay value. I had done everything I could in about 4 days except online play.

The game itself contains a new story for our ghost busting heroes and includes the voices of all the original actors. It is the best thing we can hope for after the 2 brilliant films (especially the first).

The environment is pretty rigid and you have to go wherever the game decides and does not include free roam around New York which would have been great fun. What you do see looks fantastic though. It would also be nice if the character you got to play actually spoke instead of being a mute and looking pretty gormless throughout.

Overall this game is good fun to play however maybe wait for a drop before handing over your hard earned.

4 Stars.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Our favourite ghost-busting quartet rejoin for another adventure of biblical proportions. Filled with laughs, action and drama (well...) this is a quality game. I've just completed it in one (long) sitting; not because it's particularly short, just 'cause bustin' makes me feel good!!

The gameplay steals a LOT of 'now standard' 3rd person shooter conventions, such as: being revived / having to revive others when hit, waves of generic types of npc (ghosts) spawning from a portal you can shut off, having a purchasable weapon upgrade system, and proton-versions of generic types of guns you'd expect to find in any shooter. However (and this is a BIG however), you're a Ghostbuster, you're wearing a proton pack, and that makes it AWESOME!

Graphics aren't the best (apart from the pre-rendered cutscenes) and there are some bugs that need flattening (occasionally I needed to restart from a checkpoint 'cause the game broke) but these are minor details when compared to how much fun I had while playing.

Now to try the online content....

Overview:
A good but generic 3rd person shooter that due to fantastic circumstance, voice-acting and script is simply brilliant. If you want a 'fun' game, this is for you. If you're a Ghostbuster fan, get it now. Now!
