Ghostbusters is a hilarious 1984 movie about four unlikely paranormal problem solvers that protect their city from ghastly threats. For a small fee, of course.

Here's the Story

Ghostbusters: The Video Game, like the movie, is written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, who also play the characters of two of the Ghostbusters. As such is the case, the game has a great storyline with lots of funny dialogue.

To make it even better, most of the original cast have returned to lend their face and voice to the chararcters, making the game feel like a Ghostbusters sequel. Despite the cartoony graphics of the Wii version, the story featured in the game is based solely on the movies and not the cartoon.

I Ain't 'fraid of No Ghosts

In the game, you play as a new recruit to the Ghostbusters team. Gameplay involves using your proton pack to solve puzzles and fight and trap ghosts. Overall, the game has a good pace, with ghostbusting getting a little bit boring near the end of the game. Luckily, there are several fantastic boss fights that really mixes things up.

The game is fairly easy and the controls are mostly good, with only some motion control actions later on in the game being difficult to perform. The best part of Ghostbusters is the co-op mode, which is fun and always interesting as both players will have many things to do. Partners can drop out and join in at anytime, which is very convenient.

Who You Gonna Call?

Comparing the cartoony Wii version of the game to the one available on Xbox 360 and PS3, the puzzles and co-op is better on the Wii version while the ghostbusting is much better on the other versions. However, since it is Ghostbusters, and a great game overall, you cannot go wrong with any version of this game.
