Average 3rd-person shooter type game

by Anthony on 10/14/2011

I really love the ghostbusters movies, I grew up with them. This game does a good job at capturing the overall feel from the movies. The gameplay is average though, it's cool seeing the proton pack shooting out and hearing the authentic sounds but the rest of it is pretty bland. I'm really disappointed that this doesn't include a 4-player co-op campaign mode. It would have made the game much more tolerable. It's also surprisingly difficult at times. If you're a fan of the movies I'd say get it otherwise pass. Read More
