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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmoshere... Loads of it! 7 April 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Normal
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Loving the films is one thing. Living the dream of sort-of being in the adventure is another and a big reason why I got this game. The whole design of the sets, music, the excellent script and the actual actors really makes this a totally worthwhile experience.
At its core, it is still an adventure game but with all the franchise gumf along with it. Very spooky in places with puzzles testing on a variety of skill levels, including wearing the PKE goggles - it becomes a bit off a jumpfest if the lights are down in your room. Minor gripe; you can't edit your character. This is not a deal breaker by any means. Wishlist for game 2, perhaps...?

I thoroughly recommend this game to fans of the film and wanting to just be a Ghostbuster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic wholesom nostalgic fun 17 Nov 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite the cartoon styling of the Wii version, the game certainly didn't disappoint. I had hoped to play the more realistic PS3 version first, but the graphics give the Wii version a charm of its own.

The control system is well thought out, and easy to use with the Wii-mote acting as your proton blaster and viewing direction, and the nunchuck your movement. Making a throwing motion with the nunchuck deploys a trap, which was a nice touch.

From the moment the slightly grainy Columbia pictures logo appears you feel the nostalgia brimming up, and the reunited cast are exactly as you remember them. The music has been lifted directly from the movies for a truly authentic experience.

There was nothing about this game I didn't like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who you gonna call? 21 Nov 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a big fan of the original films, I was really looking forward to the release of this game on the wii - and I wasn't disappointed! The storyline is true to the film and the original actors do the voice acting so it's nostalgic to listen to, not to mention great entertainment! The humour is still there with Ray's off the cuff comments at times of increasing danger and one of your first missions is to catch Slimer who has escaped yet again and has returned to his old haunt of the hotel from the first film! This time, you get to wreck the ballroom though!

Once you get the hang of the controls (you use the remote and the nunchuck to play) it's great fun and it never becomes dull with endless searching for your next hunt. There are plenty of on screen prompts to tell you what to do in the 'novice' mode which is great for younger children and new gamers like me!

The graphics are brilliant and there's very little lag between levels which I had feared on the Wii. You can play on your own or in multi-player which is loads of fun and you can also select the level of difficulty which gives the game lots of mileage. There are also bonus games to unlock.

All in all, a brilliant game. Really glad I bought it.

3.0 out of 5 stars OKAY 8 Jan 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Normal
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This video game is entertaining enough for the younger crowd but I'm not sure it will become a favorite. The characters are close to the original ones (the receptionist Annie is a little off) and the voices sound like the actors who portrayed them on film. This is appreciated for true fans but makes no difference to the younger crowd.

The game consists of a series of challenges for the player to zap the ghosts and put them into containers. There is are a lot of video scenes around each game. Although these scenes can be skipped, it's a combination of scenes mixed with games and cutting out the scenes will not leave too many games. I found it frustrating to wait for the scenes to play out before I could play the next challenge and I usually skipped forward. The challenges were not all that hard to complete and I would recommend them for beginners.

This game is half story board and half game with no real skill needed and will not provide much of a challenge for serious gamers. However, if you're a huge fan of the movie or a beginner, this game will prove more fun. The price is appealing.

4.0 out of 5 stars I ain't afraid of no Ghosts... well I am a bit 28 Oct 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As some other people have rightly said about this game. Its a perfect piece of nostalgia. The Ghostbusters are as good a creation now, as they were back in the 80's. This game is a perfect tribute to those lovable characters.

First point. Everyone goes on about the graphics being cartoony. That isn't a problem for me, in fact I prefer the look. Of course its not as impressive as the PS3 and 360 in appearance, but I feel it gives the Characters more charm and personality.

The bonus to the Wii version is the controls. The Wii remote acts perfectly as your "proton gun". In fact all you need is a big proton pack strapped to your back and it'd feel as if you were in ghostbusters. The way you swing your nunchuk to slide your trap to capture Ghosts is brilliant and accurate. This all adds to the Ghost bustin experience, giving this game an advantage over the other platforms versions.

The story is great. Set after Ghostbusters 2 this game sees all the ghosts the busters have caught (in the films) released by some unknown power and, of course, they have to set about catching them all over again. This means you get to see some classic bad guys like Slimer and "Stay puff" marsh mellow man as well as some new and interesting ghosts..

The sound is brilliant, done in exactly the same style as the movies and recreates that classic proton beam sound as you zap and trap those pesky ghosties. The music is recreated brilliantly and offers that feeling of a true Ghost bustin experience. The voices are done by the original cast from the films. It is brilliant to listen as they banter with each other as the levels progress, and the cut scenes are done just spot on.

This game is so much fun to play, but it ain't perfect. Here are the issues I did had with this game.
