Crossover Game Adventure/Movie Plot

  • Jun 19, 2009
I was impressed when I found out that the original creators and stars of the Ghostbusters movie were consulted to bring an all-new story to the video platform.

Their likenesses and voices are included as well.

The idea of the game is that you are a trainee, and so on the easy level (there are 3 levels of play), it's also like a training mission. By participating in the adventure, it's easy to figure out how and when to use the different devices.

The tools are easy to use, and pop-up directions on the screen remind you how.

In addition to capturing the ghost on each mission, there are other things to "capture" with your rays, which allows for hours of game play.

This fact (that one would want to go back and fully complete these bonus tasks), and the fact that there are 3 levels of play make this a great game.

My 5 year old loves his Wii, but can't read fluently, so he watched me play, but then seemed content to play alone as well. In fact, even when he wasn't reading the directions, he was telling me when I was "doing it wrong."

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

I still pop this in and play it from time to time.    Ghostbusters fans should love this game. I am convinced that other people should …

Fans have been clamoring for more Ghostbusters since the second movie was released twenty years ago. Though no movie is yet in the works, when all of the original actors (minus Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver) signed on to do the video game, it was time for rejoicing. The overall plot of the game has the player playing as a new recruit to the Ghostbusters. The crew has all kinds of new and highly dangerous experimental equipment that's never been tested and as the new guy, that's what you get …

I wanted to love this game so bad. All of the key original actors and actresses (from Bill Murray to Annie Potts) were involved in the creation of the game and their voices were used for their characters. Slimer, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man and others also return. The proton packs, PKE meters and all of Egon's other wonderful gadgets were also used in this game.    So what's not to like? Numerous gameplay-interrupting cutscenes (some funny, some not), half-hearted controls, …
