What Gamespot Users have to say about Ghostbusters

  • Review Score:1.7

    If the Ghostbusters are cool and videogames are supposed to be fun, then why is this called a Ghostbusters videogame?

    The Ghostbusters were mega-popular back in the day. After the movie, there was Ghostbuster stuff everywhere. There was a cartoon show based on the Ghostbusters. There was Ghostbusters merchandise. So if something is this... Read Full Review

    Well, I'd recommend just downloading the ROM.

    You know, buying NES games are never expensive these days. But, even for the 50 cents you might spend buying this, it wouldn't be worth it. Just buy the gum ball. The Gameplay: For one thing, I'm not even sure tha... Read Full Review

    A decent movie made into a craptacular game.

    One word - disappointing. The game is awful for the first screen right away. You are a ghostbusters logo flying around city. You get to hear the same music all over again witch gets annoying really fast. So the plot of t... Read Full Review

    One of the worst movie-to-NES games ever made!

    One word: BORING. This game is boring. True, blasting ghosts up to begin with can be fun, driving round in the ecto-1, it`s all fun to begin wiht but after about 5 minuites, it gets boring and repetitive. And the gramme... Read Full Review

    This game isn't so much BAD, or poorly made, it is just BORING.

    Okay; I loved the Ghostbusters movie; so I thought I would check out the game, hoping to bust some ghosts, good ole' fun. What I got was not necessarily a HORRIBLE game, but a very... dull game. You see; you start off at... Read Full Review

    Not quite a big twinkie

    Using the famous line from the movie, I'll compare the game. "That's a big twinkie!" This is the exact opposite of the game. A twinkie looks boring on the outside, but is amazing on the inside. However, this title looks ... Read Full Review

    a horrible game made in short time to cash in.

    This game is a piece of utter crap. It is easily the worst game I have ever played. there is nothing good about it, other than the title screen. Don't buy it, not even for 1p or the smallest unit of currency you have. D... Read Full Review

    Is it Engrish or illiteracy?

    It's a tragedy that such a great movie was turned into such a bad video game. Ghostbusters the game only took six weeks to make. And if you play it, you won't be suprised. The game is tedious and frustrating. The goa... Read Full Review

    Slightly better than the NES version.

    So far I've checked out two versions already. The NES one, which is the most notable one, was considered one of the worst NES games of all time. But the Master System one was a huge hit. The Atari 2600 version of Ghos... Read Full Review
