Advantages: fun, exciting, nostalgic, different
I have been a Ghostbusters fan from a very young age. I even fell out with my Uncle over the first movie, as he thought I was too young to watch it. I still do not like him and have not spoken to him since.
As a child growning up, I had many heroes to look up to, Spider-Man, He-Man, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, The Ghostbusters, and of course Rocky Balboa.
I have been waiting for a third Ghostbusters movie forever, and when I heard that the game was coming out, I set myself a goal.
I bought an Xbox 360 after carefully choosing the console I wish to play this game on. The Xbox 360 controller felt the best to use all the functions of the game.
I bought this game when it came out. I could'nt wait to play it. I bought an Xbox, and I even bought a new 22inch LCD monitor just so I can play this game.
From the get go, this game takes you back to the movies, the music thats used in the menu and in the game.
The idea of the game is simple, you are a new recruit and have to do on the job training.
There are some jokes and dialogue built into the scenes and gameplay, which are unique to the characters, which I felt was a really nice touch.
You have a main story (I wont spoil it) and you have to do little missions which gets you money and new weapons and features.
"lets split up"
"yes, we can do more damage that way"
That is certainly true, you get money for destroying things around you.
The proton pack is great, and with the controller it feels really good zapping a ghost.
You learn how to wrangle them and stun them and it really makes you feel like you are busting some ghosts.
The game brings back certain elements from both movies which is nice to see.
After a few hours playing the game you feel like a child again pretending you have your own proton pack and busting ghosts here and there.
The "Cut Scenes" are the video element to the game, they set the story or that part of the story up. And are very cinematic, its almost like you are watching a Ghostbusters movie.
The multi-player is another great feature of this game, and is highly playable. You can have up to four players in a co-op style game.
This is a truly enjoyable game, for me as a fan, and a life long Ghostbuster.
Anyone who has seen this movie will love it, introduce someone to it and they will be left wanting more.
Cant wait for a follow up game.
Summary: This game is not just for fans its for everyone...who needs HE-MAN!!!!
