    As far as augmented reality games go, this one is top-quality. The ghosts are hard to catch and they fight back, covering your screen with green slime or even cracking the glass. As far as Ghostbusters fandom goes, it is an entertaining and exciting way to feel like you are part of the team.

    The developers have hit upon a fun little concept here that just works well for Ghostbusters, but the execution is off the mark. With a bit of tweaking, Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast could be awesome for fans of supernatural elimination. We're ready to believe you, but we need just a little more to believe in first.

    Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast is a one session play that will keep players occupied about as long as a commercial break.

    Three years later, XMG Studio has tried to recapture some of that success with a new title for the iOS – Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast. However, it struggles more than Ray trying to wrangle Slimer into a ghost trap.

    Fun for a few minutes but repetitive and boring after prolonged play, Ghostbusters: Paranormal Blast's excellent presentation can't save it from mediocrity.

    A quirky little tool, and it's nice to see more people attempt to utilize the iOS cameras in gameplay, but this is far from the supreme ghost fighting experience that many of us have been waiting for our entire lives. It's a fun gimmick to show your friends, but the novelty disappears faster than a Slimer in broad daylight.
