Lately, many classic 80's franchises are getting revived using the cinema. Other franchises are used in creating new PC or console games (Teenage Mutant Turtles Ninja for example). Unlike TNT that is specially designed for young gamers, Ghostbusters is created for its target public (the original Ghostbusters is 20 years older now). The originally Ghostbusters cast has returned from Annie Potts to Dan Akroyd and the real star is Peter Venkman (played by Bill Murray). However, the power of this game doesn't lays in its distribution. A game should be fun and Ghostbusters has plenty of it. The entire process of tracking and capturing ghosts is well designed and more than entertainment. In addition, the entire equipment available in Ghostbusters can be upgraded, adding more depth to the origina
When you find yourself a ghost you can instant switch to combat mode and you can start to blast around with your ghost buster gun. This process is extremely fun. Your weapon is going to leave marks on the wall, can blast glass and other objects just like the real ghost buster weapon does. The game even tracks the monetary value of what are you destroying which can give you a feeling of satisfaction. After you weakened the ghost with your blasting gun, you can grab it with a special steam produced by your weapon. The captured ghost will try to escape charging in all direction. The capturing process may seem a bit cruel but keep in mind that every ghost is extremely ugly andÃ¢â‚¬Â¦already dead. Of course, those will do anything to stop you. Ghost can throw objects towards ghost busters and stun or even kill them.
From graphical point of view, Ghostbusters looks quite good. Ghostbusters is visually conservative and the result is a smooth run even on slower systems. The sound is also extremely good but the final mix could use some small retouching.
Overall, Ghostbusters worth the spent money, it is a 20 year old franchise with a nice story behind and a simple and efficient game play.
