    Written by and starring the original cast of Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is simply the best video game based on a movie property ever created. With fun gameplay and bizarre events, this is the closest you’ll ever get to strapping on a real proton pack.

    It’s not as if the original game was all that stunning or anything, but there are plenty of moments here where Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered just looks blurry and kind of ugly. That’s not enough to make me not recommend it, though. In fact, I’m almost certainly going to go out and buy myself a copy of the game on the Switch, just so I can have it with me at home and on the go. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is likely only going to appeal to people who have some nostalgia for the movies — but if you have that nostalgia, it’s practically a must-play.

    For better or worse, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is still the best example of proton slinging in the gaming medium. Terminal Velocity and co have preserved the unique mechanics of spectre combat and improved the in-game visuals to a suitable degree. However, the same can not be said for cutscenes, certain audio moments and the incredibly dated tropes. If you accept that this is a decade old title and fancy some time with Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston then there is still a lovable and endearing game to find underneath it all. Bustin’ still feels good, but your mileage will vary.

    We were hoping to have something new in terms of contents. However it's the exact same game from 10 years ago with all of its pros and cons.

    A rather weak remaster on the technical side, but to which it is impossible not to recognize a certain intrinsic cultural value, closely linked to his respectful love for the cinematographic saga.

    The prospect of playing alongside the Ghostbusters in a story that serves as a proper sequel to the original films is exciting, but this adaptation only leaves us heartbroken. Initially a captivating experience, the magic fades fast, dispelled by poorly designed sections, bad AI, and a repetitive gameplay cycle. Thankfully, the series has since been revived with new and upcoming films, but it’s a shame that Ghostbusters: The Video game squanders a golden opportunity to become something truly special in this medium.

    Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered offers endless joy to the fans of the Ghostbusters movie franchise, but maybe not to others. If you never watched the movies before, you probably shouldn’t buy this game either.

If you’re a fan of the movies, I highly recommend you get it! As far as being a re-master, in some areas it’s kind of ugly and I thought they would have clean that up better. One major mistake they made was taking the multiplayer out of this game! I feel like they could’ve not only included the multiplayer, but made it better, by adding new maps and things like that! They totally dropped the ball with the multiplayer! Expand

    If you are a Ghostbusters fan who never bought the original, this is the definitive version. it's a 10. BUY IT NOW! The best Ghostbusters gameIf you are a Ghostbusters fan who never bought the original, this is the definitive version. it's a 10. BUY IT NOW! The best Ghostbusters game ever. Which isn't saying much because the runners up are Ghostbusters 2 NES Pal version which was like a less fun Zombies ate my Neighbors, a Doom2 WAD, and a Pokemon go knockoff. Are you a non-fan who wants a 3rd person shooter with a fun lasso gimmick? meh 5/10.

    Did you buy it before? It's literally the exact same game with almost no noticeable increase in resolution. Also no Multiplayer (yet?). Seriously, co-op and multi should have been the bare minimum addition. If they add that and maybe a new map on it I'll jack up my score by 2 points. It's only been 10 years. A little early for a remaster. Not much differences in tech to take advantage of.

    I still love it though. Gonna 100% all the trophies just like last time. If you are a fan and you bought it once, only a superfan would buy it again. In which case add me when multiplayer comes out Thedarknerd69 on PSN. If you didn't buy it before? Buy it now! If you are a passing fan or a normie? Pass.
