What Gamespot Users have to say about Ghostbusters: The Video Game

  • User Rating 8.5

    One of the best movie-tie-in games of all time. And a pretty damn fine sequel to the second Ghostbusters movie.

    Okay, so maybe it's my generation. As a 33 year old, I always dreamed of sporting a proton pack and fighting ghosts. I'm sort of shocked that the gaming press hasn't embraced this game for what it i...

    The game was slated to be released in October 2008. However, the video game studio switched and Sony also decided that it would be best to wait to release the game until June to more closely coincide ...

    This game is an overall enjoyable experience.

    If you grew up in the 80's, you know Ghostbusters. Hell, I knew the Ghostbusters' names before I knew my ABC's! Although that is kind of sad, this game is not. For anyone who remembers Ghostbusters fo...

    Ghostbusters is an overall alright game.

    After playing/finishing Ghostbusters, I knew immediately how I was going to review this game. Ghostbusters is, ultimately, a game made to hit some nostalgia-notes for hardcore and/or past-fans. Otherw...

    Average game, great cutscenes, brilliantly funny original movie cast.

    I must admit, this is one of the best games based on a movie given that usually such games are nothing more than crap. I'll start with my biggest disappointment -- game installation. BEWARE to inst...

    Ghostbusters will always be a classic.

    Rated on May 22, 2012 by serge99100100

    This has been a long time since there was a Ghostbusters game released. The wait is finally over. As a fan of the franchise, I was glad that a new iteration was in development. You might know my scept...

    Frankly speaking, I've been bored of playing all the Halo's, the Prince of Persia's and the likes on the PC, and leaving all that for when I get myself the XBox. Anyway, I came across this li'l frea...

    While the story is fun, the gameplay is often frustrating.

    Rated on November 26, 2009 by nunyerbiz

    Ghostbusters captures the spirit of the movies very well. While I didn't find things as hilarious as some reviewers, seeing all the cutscenes, hearing all the voice work and picking out all the callba...

    GhostBuster delivers great game play with little to complain about

    Rated on December 02, 2009 by Commando225

    I bought this game because I enjoyed the movies in the 1980s. While not the type of game I usually play, I decide to try it because the movie series left me wanting bigger cooler battles against ghost...

    A fun but lacking game.

    Rated on June 19, 2010 by PCbadjer

    The good: The voice acting and dialogue is awesome. The game and story stay true to the Ghostbusters franchise. The graphics and physics are impressive. The game-play is do-able. Boss battles are fun....
