What Gamespot Users have to say about Ghostbusters

  • Rating:6.5

    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

    Congratulations! You had the patience to sit through this awful game!

    Of all the NES games I know of, this one ranks as one of the top 10 worst. But why is it so bad? The first thing you'll notice is the ghostbusters theme. Now I understand this is a ghostbusters game, but we can't stan... 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

    A game scary enough to scare a ghost

    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

    "Good, compared to watching paint dry, watching grass grow, or watching paint dry on growing grass!!"

    I might as well, do this with the good and the bad thing, if you don't want to read all of this, so... The good: The game offers a realistic ghostbusting experience for the time of the NES. It has a good 8-bit rendi... Read Full Review

    Totally Trash!

    There are better things to do than playing this game - like washing your hair, for example, or watching paint dry. I don't think the creators cared anything about either movie fans or video game buffs when they made thi... 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
