    "The one, the only, GHOSTBUSTERS!"

    Yes, the NES version looked more like 2600 than NES. Sure the other versions weren't very much better. But this is the shining version. The GB's resemble real people. The music is a masterpiece for its time. And the anim... Read Full Review

    Bustin' Makes Me Feel Good!

    From the moment you turn on the system and hear the GB theme song playing, you know it's going to be a great game. As Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, or Ray Stanz, you bust some heads, in a spiritual sense, and rid New Yor... Read Full Review

    Look....just enjoy this game. I say this because it's only one of two ghostbusters games that's actually any good at all (the other one being the newly released shooter on the big boy consoles.) Yeah this game has a l... Read Full Review

    Classic platformer for the Sega Genesis!

    Growing up as a huge Ghostbusters fan, getting this game became an intricate part of my childhood. I think i got it on my 5th birthday, and here i am, 14 years later, and its still one of my all time favorites! Play ... Read Full Review

    The best Ghostbusters game

    Having played the disasters called Ghostbusters on C64, I didn't have high expectations for this one, yet I bought it (got it real cheap back then). This Ghostbusters game is a straight forward platformer. You can cho... Read Full Review

    Genesis version isn't actually that great. C64 version is better.

    I found this game to be very difficult on the C64. Along with busting ghosts around New York you had to manage the company's budget. The more ghosts you successfully caught (not that easy) the more money you got and you ... Read Full Review

    A childhood favorite that's still fun to play.

    I remember the first time playing Ghostbusters on the Mega Drive at my cousins house, I was in awe of how awesome this game was. It has all the right elements of a classic, great controlls, great graphics, great sounds, ... Read Full Review

    A huge improvement from the god-awful NES version.

    When it comes to a ghostbusters game, I'd probably get this one or the Genesis version, whichever you choose is up to you. This game made so many improvements from the horrible NES version. 1. New ghost types, not jus... Read Full Review

    I ain't afraid of no ghost!

    PROS: graphics are nice and colorful, controls are solid, music is good, boos battles are creative and fun CONS: still have to buy items, night vision goggles do not last long enough, enemies can be cheap, only three ... Read Full Review
