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
-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
-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?you also spend time with the PKmeter looking for clues and items, and the puzzles are eeasy, but a few still make you think
im glad it didnt get relesed as a sandbox game, it would be a failure, riding from the HQ to where the ghosts were would be boring considering you wouldnt be able to run down pedestrians, shoot things, and obviously there wont be any/many ghosts around while driving. everybody who thinks this is the reason it fails, because its not a GTA/ghostbuster game, really think about would it work, the answser being NO
beautiful game, the best game based on a film i have every played, the only one tht feels like the film, truly amazing
