  1. Fans are going to love it, but for everyone else this is just a good shooter with a different setting. But come on - who isn't a fan of the Ghostbusters?
  2. On the whole, Ghostbusters is an impressive production most fans should eat up. We had a fun time with the game, though we were also left with serious reservations due to glitching that might cause less-experienced gamers to hang up their proton packs well before the journey ends.

    Being able to blast everything off the wall, listen to Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, as well as exist in the firehouse is definitely cool; plus, the story is solid. Still, the graphics and framerate are disappointments, the load times are too long, and wrangling can boil down to being a chore.
  4. The decent script and original cast won't disappoint. [Sept 2009, p.106]
  5. While this might not be the absolute best version of the Ghostbusters video game, it’s still a heck of a lot of fun. PS2 owners with a taste for wrangling spooks, specters, and ghosts shouldn’t hesitate to pick this one up.
  6. Ultimately, this game is a true celebration of all things Ghostbusters, and fans shouldn't wait to get this if the PlayStation 2 is all they have. For those with little love for the series, it's still a good action game, even if the no-frills levels and abbreviated campaign are bound to leave you feeling like you're sitting at the kids' table while the adults feast.
  7. There is really no argument in favor of Ghostbusters on the Playstation 2. The story follows that of it's more talented brothers (Xbox 360 and Playstation 3) and the content offers no major news.
  8. It has so many mistakes and the port from the Wii version is so cheap that we can't recommend it.
  9. This version of Ghostbusters is a poor port of the Wii version with a plethora of technical and gameplay issues. Fans are better off picking up the game on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.
