Rubbish game. 5mins of nostalgia then throw it away!


Got to disagree. It’s a great game. Feels a little dated as it’s a 360/PS3 gen game and we have different mechanics these days, but that doesn’t hurt it too much in my opinion.

This is up there with Transformers War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron and Insomniac’s Spiderman as the correct way to do games based on a licensed franchise.
Played this on xbox 360 and I bought the remaster, I still enjoyed playing this but everyone's opinion will be different. Worth £20 in my opinion.

Really, I was just going to ask. After the new Ghostbusters got such a roasting I was hoping for a game that went against the opposite direction!

Well, if you've ever played the original game on PS3/XBOX360, this is a remaster. The Metacritic page for the XBOX 360 version is here. It got 79/100.

It's okay but very limited.

It's great to see the original cast back and it's the best GB game so far... which isn't saying much.

But there's just not a lot to the game. Play the first two missions and you've seen all it has to offer.

Honestly, just remind yourself it's a 10 year old game. It still carries those flaws, but the gameplay is solid enough with the odd crazy spike in difficulty.

You'll mostly be in it for the story and having the cast back together, that's enough to drive through the game in my opinion.
It's a fantastic game I have it on ps3. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is fun.

Had never heard of this until the news of the remaster. The way everyone started raving about it made me think I had somehow missed out on a classic.
Now its released most people seem to be saying its a bit 'meh'. Gotta laugh...

Your opinion will greatly vary dependant on your attachment to the Ghostbusters franchise tbh, you're far more likely to get so much more out of it if you love the films and the universe.
I loved the original. I was on it constantly for ages with the multiplayer so this was a day one purchase for me. Unfortunately it's a rose tinted goggles situation. I started to play the remaster and just lost interest so quickly. There was nothing for me to push through with. Lack of multiplayer has annoyed me, but they have said that it will be added into the game one day down the line. Voice cast is amazing. Textures don't look exactly that great. It feels like when you played a ps1 game on a ps2 and it made the edges slightly smoother and more crisp. I'll probably try it again soon enough but my gears 5 grind is still on going.

Ah what I loved the multiplayer on the original title. Think I will wait now

Oh the sound of the trap going up, caching slimmer and coming down again

That and driving from one location to the other

If you are a fan of the films then I don't understand how you could not like this, for a decade it was essentially the 3rd film featuring the majority of the main cast back to do the voices and the story was even written by Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd.


Granted it is 10 years old and can feel a bit dated however it now runs and looks far better than it ever has before on consoles (FYI it was sub 720p on the PS3 on release) and for the price it was an easy purchase for me.
I played it on the 360 and loved it to be honest. Really good fun and a script written by Aykroyd and Ramos means it feels authentic
£13 used on Ebay. Buy if keen and then sell on to lose a couple of quid.
2/5 on Amazon... what type of game is it? FPS/3PS?

If it went against the opposite direction, then it would go in the same direction
I will defo buy it! Missed out on previous generation release:/

Love the franchise and even watched the last one 2 or 3 times and don’t mind it at all as opposed to all those purists out there!:)

Will defo pick up this game and I am sure my kids will love it as well but gotta admit, will wait till this drops to circa £15 and for digital form so I can game share with the kids!:)

In all honesty, £20 sounds decent anyway for physical copy but would need two anyway... well, if to believe the multiplayer bit being added later on but I presume if game does not sell well, this will never happen!

Even though the first movie is one of my all-time favourites, this is one of those games that I enjoyed first time round but am absolutely baffled why it got a remaster. It was ok but I wasn’t deafened by the calls for an update.
Is this what they realise when they don't have many games to come out, so they 'remaster' games and call it a new title? FFS. Getting like Disney and their rehash shot-for-shot live-action cgi-fests because they can't come up with any new scripts.

In all, great game to match a great franchise. Did it need a remaster? Did it f...

How about make the consoles backwards compatible every time you bring a new one out. Bit too much like common sense

I think it's to tie in with the 35th anniversary celebrations of Ghostbusters & 10 year anniversary of the game hence the budget port, film has been back in select cinemas too and they may be trying to drum up excitement for the new movie due next year(?)
I really wanted to get this game as the PS3 version was really good but after seeing reviews i'm kinda put off getting it.

It absolutely needed a remaster. m.youtube.com/wat…30A

I wouldn’t want to be playing that blurry, frame rate dropping mess in 2019 via backwards compatibility.

Also, it IS available via backwards compatibility on Xbox One so you can actually play that version if you want...in 720p 30fps of course. Meanwhile, those who buy this can play at 1080p (4K on Pro/One X ) 60fps with better textures and anti aliasing.

the reviews are from little kids who judge every game on COD and GTA

I asked on my gaming group on Facebook and people are saying the game is unplayable because of glitches with the cut scenes and it takes a few attempts to even start up the game.

Remember buying this great game
