    Ghostbusters is unfortunately a very boring and bad game. The four main characters have no charisma and they try to seem funny... but they are not at all. The gameplay is repetitive and the player will be bored in no time, and it is really too bad that the Ghostbusters franchise couldn't be honored with a good game that the original four deserve. Because Ghostbusters is simply worth it, this is not.

    No informed gamer should fall for the siren song of that catchy main theme. It’s not actively painful to play if you happen to be at your eight-year-old cousin’s house and need a co-op game for six to eight hours that’s not going to require much skill. But you could do so much better. I can’t imagine ever wanting to drop a full 50 dollars on it.

    Want to see what's wrong with movie tie-ins? Play this game. It's a boring, badly written, repetitive and uninspired mess, sold at an high price. Forget about it, and forget about the fact that the name "Ghostbusters" is written on the cover.

    There's precious little sign of excitement, imagination or progression, the weapons are weedy and the storytelling poor. Given that there are plenty of other twin-stick shooters with better gameplay and graphics out there, you'd be mad to buy it were it a fiver. At over £30, however? That's the biggest joke of all.

    Ghostbusters is one of the worst video games I have ever played. It wears its disdain for the player on its sleeve, and the truly scary thing is that everything in it appears to be working as intended.

    Sadly all the words I would like use to concisely sum up Ghostbusters are not admissible in print. [10/2016, p.62]

    Ghostbusters
    When theres something bad in your video game.
    Im going to start this review by saying this is probably the worst video game I have ever played.
    This is a dungeon crawler style shooter where you play as 1 of 4 different ghostbusters with up to 4 local co op players… all with their own stats and main weapon… as well as a proton wand…
    there are 6 locations in this game featuring 1-3 missions that can take everywhere from 7 to 40 minutes each…
    But its pretty much the same thing throughout…
    shoot smaller ghosts.. larger ghosts.. boss ghosts.. checkpoint after checkpoint location after location…
    over and over and over…
    The main problem with this game is that the pacing is way too slow and the combat is overall completely unsatisfying…
    every encounter feels like a boss fight and not because of difficulty but because how spongy every single enemy is…
    the things other dungeon crawlers like diablo get right is that weaker enemies feel like warm butter…
    but here youre shooting for what seems like forever as there are usually doezens of enemies around every corner…
    And to make it worst.. your gun overheats…
    that’s right..
    practically every 10 seconds you have to cool off your gun which brings this game to an unbearable crawl…
    when you do fight a boss, you have to weaken it to a certain point, pull out your proton wand when theyre weak, slam them a few times, and then trap them..
    you then tap x as fast as you can for an xp bonus…
    you can use this xp to upgrade characters skills like the rate in which you over heat and the damage you do.. which isn’t really too noticeable….
    And you get to do all of this while you listen to ghost puns…
    which is actually the best part of the game.
    This game is bad.
    Don’t play it.
    I give Ghostbusters
    my first ever and hopefully last ever

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The only reason it exists is to confuse people on Amazon so they can buy this piece of trash instead of the 2009 remastered Ghostbusters videogame. Expand
