Fun game but has some glitches

If you are a Ghostbusters fan you are sure to like this game. It's very fun and just like the movie in every aspect but is fairly easy to beat. My six-year-old Son was able to beat the game on medium difficulty in about a week. He still loves playing the game and is now playing it again on the hardest level. You can play single player or multi-player online where you play for and accumulate points and unlock different weapons and upgrades. There is only one problem that I see with the game. It freezes up a lot during sections of the game that have a lot of action. It gets really annoying after a while because it happens so frequently.

Weapons available for use
Proton Pack
Slime Tether
Stasis Stream
P.K.E. Meter
Paragoggles

posted in The Gaming Hub
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 …

The Ghostbusters, when the films were first released in the 80s, featured a cast of some of the best known names in comedy of that decade. I don't think I can conjure up a memory or thought of a film or TV show that matches the comic brilliance and originality of the first two Ghostbusters movies. Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson have not combined their skills since those movies until this marvellous video game. The four original Ghostbusters including a few other original …

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, …

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.    T …
