    With a fresh coat of paint, higher resolution, and sharper textures, Ghostbusters: The Game Remastered brings the unofficial Ghostbusters 3 script to life for a whole new audience. While the multiplayer mode is still AWOL, Saber Interactive promises we’ll see that pop out of a ghost trap in the near future. In the meantime, there’s a fantastic swan song for the original Ghostbusters team.
  2. Ghostbusters The Video Game Remastered, unfortunately, still has the same problems of the original game. Cumbersome movement animations are not fun. This game still is the most authentic Ghostbusters experience.

    Just like back then, I see the flaws in Ghostbusters: The Video Game, but as a fan of the two cult movies, I don't care about them at all. Yes, there are many far better third person shooters, but in what other game can I use a positron collider to stop ghosts from spraying slime all over people? The shooter gameplay is fun, despite the partly inaccurate controls, and feels exactly the way you want it to feel. Moreover, the game is teeming with allusions and quotes, which put a blissful grin on the faces of the fans of the movies. But the dry humour is also perfectly fits in other respects - no matter if Ray is just obsessed again or Egon philosophises about one of his strange hobbies. In addition, there is a great atmosphere, varied enemy design and of course some iconic locations from the movies. Of course my fan heart beats faster. So I'm all the happier that everything works technically flawlessly in handheld mode and that I can now catch a few ghosts on the go.

    Ghostbusters was a great tie-in back in 2009 but this remaster doesn’t really make for a vastly improved experience.

The original game is good, and this game is effectively identical to the original, the one good thing is that they fixed a bug that occurs on Windows 10 / 8 where if you had a controller plugged in, the game wouldn't launch (you had to plug the controller in after the game had already launched.

    The graphics are identical, I assume that they couldn't get access to the original assets, or simply never bothered to rework them. The cutscenes are upscaled, but still look noticeably worse than the game at 1440p. They didn't even bother to add a decent MSAA option.

    Last time when I buy a game from this developer/publisher. Broken game. They do not know how to repair it.
