Product Description

Usually video game tie-ins are released at the same time as the movie theyre based on. Sometimes there can be short delay--but twenty years is something else. Ghostbusters never seems to age, though, with the new game a real labour of love for the developer.

The game features an all new storyline but still manages to replicate most of the major scenes from the films, including the hotel-room capture of New York library ghost, Slimer, and the attack of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Almost all of the original cast are involved, including all four Ghostbusters, the mayor, and even Walter Peck.

The game itself is mission based and has you catching ghosts with your proton packs and then manoeuvring them into a ghost trap--just like the movie. Whether thats enough to fill a whole game isnt clear, but the funny dialogue and celebrity voiceovers should help paper over any cracks.

Key Features

Tools of the trade: Use all the same gadgets from the movies, including the iconic proton packs, particle throwers, the ghost-locating PKE meter, and Ecto-goggles.

Direct-to-game sequel: Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson all reprise their roles from the first two movies, and Akroyd and Ramis wrote the game's story.

Nice day for a drive: Get behind the wheel of the iconic Ecto-1 vehicle from the movie and chase down the faster-moving ghosts.

He slimed me: The game features all the most famous ghosts from the first two movies, including Slimer, the terror dogs, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Vigo.

New York, New York: The highly detailed environments allow for plenty of collateral damage, as a special counter rates the carnage youre causing in dollar amounts.

About the Developer: Terminal Reality

Texan developer Terminal Reality first found fame with the PC-based 3D shooter Terminal Velocity in 1995. Since then, this group has created everything from Monster Truck Madness to flight simulator Fly! to the BloodRayne series of vampiric action titles.

A summer release eh, I will wait until they shift the thousands of unsold units out to the likes of Play.com ( on the cheap) and then pick it up at that magical sub £20 price point in one of there many sales!

As I always say in the world of video games, patience is a virtue and also a lot easier on the pocket!

Played it on C64, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC464 all at my friends houses, but it never came out on my poor litlle BBC B.

Have got the newer port on my GP2X.

Finally! This was due out for Christmas but got delayed because of the problems with Activision. Glad to see it's back on track though!

Also, it's not really a game of the Ghostbusters film, it's a pseudo-sequel, as it's set 2 years after Ghostbusters 2.

Its been shelved twice and i doubt thats beacause it was a great game.

Id wait for the reviews .

It might be worth a play for the story though as its the real writers and original cast.

It was only put back to June 2009 after the Activision problems was so it could come out on the 25th Aniversary of the film. It will tie in with the release of the original films on Blu-Ray, there will be a huge marketing push as other items are released as well, like the new action figures and also the new ]Master Replica film props of Proton Pack and Trap.

First review up on metacritic:
metacritic.com/gam…ers
9/10
Ghostbusters: The Videogame is possibly one of the best adaptations ever done of a film to a videogame. Its secret is a very detailed ambience, but the best thing is that it not only plays with our nostalgia, it also has great playability. The absence of Rick Moranis is the only thing that prevents the game from being perfect, but if you love the films this is what you've always dreamed of.

Oh and the title of this thread needs editing due to it now being a timed PS3 exclusive.
