    This latest game has some good ideas and I do love a good twin-stick shooter but unfortunately this game falls short and the gameplay becomes stake very quickly. The game looks great and runs well but doesn’t manage to capture the essence of what make the franchise so enjoyable. If the game had more depth, deeper story and meaningful gameplay it could have been so much better.

    Ghostbusters offers a top-down co-op shooter with light RPG elements that fails to capitalize on the magic and humor of the supernatural franchise.

    Demanding $50 for Ghostbusters which is clearly designed as a much smaller title is unforgivable and honestly, approaching fraud.

    Games like this are the reason why movie tie-ins have a bad reputation. Technically sound, but otherwise redundant, boring and worse than the 2011 game Sanctum of Slime, while totally overpriced even the multiplayer aspect cannot save anything.

    I don’t particularly like pointing out so many negatives, but when there’s virtually no positives to speak about it’s difficult not to. A nonexistent storyline, basic and repetitive gameplay, terrible and constant one-liners, and nothing that makes it feel like a real Ghostbusters experience, makes this game a difficult sell at $20, but it’s price is unfathomably three times that amount.

    Stay away from this game even for a cheap buck. Who ya gonna call? Hopefully the store where this game was purchased from in hopes of asking for a refund.

    Ghostbusters does the bare minimum required, and it's apparent that this is a project that nobody cared about. It's ironic that a game so entrenched in specters and spooks is so completely lacking in spirit.

    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

    Will a game based off a movie ever be good? No. Budget is too small, they are rushed, and are created with no love. Do not support thisWill a game based off a movie ever be good? No. Budget is too small, they are rushed, and are created with no love. Do not support this trash. Maybe in another 100 years they'll learn to stop making these. Expand
