We have covered Ghostbusters quite a bit on IR, so by now you know we are huge fans. So I couldn't resist picking up the Ghostbusters video game. First things first: anytime I hear the Ghostbusters theme I hear this (some NSFW audio):
Glad to have that out of the way. The game itself is a lot of fun. Being a hi-def junkie I went for the XBOX 360 instead of the Wii and have yet to be disappointed. All of the Ghostbusters look great and the original voices add a lot to the game.
You play a 5th Ghostbuster that basically tests all of the new equipment. It really feels like you are starring in the 3rd Ghostbusters movie along side the original cast. The game play is fairly self explanatory: you bust ghosts. There is a lot of that, but there is enough variety that it hasn't seemed boring or repetitive yet.
The game is really fun so I would certainly recommend it for a rental and if you are a big fan its a pretty fun one to own. I haven't played the Wii version yet or done much in the multiplayer part in the game so if you have I would love to hear about it in the comments.
