I am a big fan of the Ghostbusters franchise. I even watched the Extreme Ghostbusters tv show (And hoped that this would be adapted in a third film). But unfortunately there were never a really good Ghostbusters video game... Sure the SNES one was not bad but still... And not Luigi’s Mansion doesn’t count! That’s why this one is important. Sure, it has flaws. It has bugs. It doesn’t look very good. But it feels “authentic” as a Ghostbusters experience. Shooting the Proton Pack’s beam was never that satisfying before. Hunting ghosts and wraith is a pleasure in this game (If you can forgive the flaws). The story is simple : you’re the team new recruit and you must help the Ghostbusters in their quest to save New York City from an invasion from beyond the grave. How awesome is that?
Ghostbusters: The Video Game is a game nobody expected, and even fewer expected to be good. But not only was it good, but it was amazing. In Ghostbusters: The Video Game, you play as a new Ghostbusters recruit, and it is your job to team up with the existing Ghostbusters to, what else, bust ghosts. The story is well written and all the actors reprise their roles. But most importantly, the gameplay feels amazing. The gameplay style of Ghostbusters: The Video Game is very similar to Gears of War; you play in a third person over the shoulder perspective and fire various different weapons at different ghosts. Some ghosts are can only be damaged by certain weapons, and some, but not all, need to be trapped before they are defeated, complete with maneuvering the ghost over the trap in true Ghostbuster fashion. There are also some light puzzle elements where you need to use a weapon or gadget to progress, but for the most part the game is all about busting and trapping ghosts. Ghostbusters: The Video Game came out of nowhere and left quite the impression. It showed that movie tie-in video games could be made well, and reminded us all why we fell in love with the Ghostbusters movies to begin with.
