    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.

    I'm so glad I found Ghostbusters. I used the money I got from refunding another game that was just released (really lucky there), even if itI'm so glad I found Ghostbusters. I used the money I got from refunding another game that was just released (really lucky there), even if it was out of spite, I just wanted to give that money to someone else that was undeserving of it but somehow, still more deserving than the first. The first thing that got me about Ghostbusters was the quality of the CGI introduction, the animation of the characters and that even in 30 FPS it runs far smoother than I expected. Some other developers should really take note that even in 2016, newer games than this could learn something! Expand

    If you thought this game was bad, you haven't seen Warcraft3 Reforged......

    Truly a game ahead of it's time. No one understands how this game was crafted. It's almost like there was a war on this game.
