    Written by and starring the original cast of Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is simply the best video game based on a movie property ever created. With fun gameplay and bizarre events, this is the closest you’ll ever get to strapping on a real proton pack.

    So much of Terminal Reality's love shines through, even though this isn't a mind-blowing remastered effort. Don't eye this in the store and zip into your Ghostbusters overalls expecting a super sexy visual transformation – like bookish Dana Barrett to the siren-like Gatekeeper. You instead should power on your pack with the knowledge that this game is just oozing authenticity like an open New York City sewer does “bad mood slime”.

    For better or worse, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is still the best example of proton slinging in the gaming medium. Terminal Velocity and co have preserved the unique mechanics of spectre combat and improved the in-game visuals to a suitable degree. However, the same can not be said for cutscenes, certain audio moments and the incredibly dated tropes. If you accept that this is a decade old title and fancy some time with Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston then there is still a lovable and endearing game to find underneath it all. Bustin’ still feels good, but your mileage will vary.

    We were hoping to have something new in terms of contents. However it's the exact same game from 10 years ago with all of its pros and cons.

    The prospect of playing alongside the Ghostbusters in a story that serves as a proper sequel to the original films is exciting, but this adaptation only leaves us heartbroken. Initially a captivating experience, the magic fades fast, dispelled by poorly designed sections, bad AI, and a repetitive gameplay cycle. Thankfully, the series has since been revived with new and upcoming films, but it’s a shame that Ghostbusters: The Video game squanders a golden opportunity to become something truly special in this medium.

    Fans of the original Ghostbusters: The Video Game will probably enjoy this, even if it’s just for a trip down memory lane and to see the cast again and visit some iconic locations. But due to its repetitive combat, insufferable artificial intelligence, and dull gameplay, I would advise first-time players to maybe pick up something else if you’re looking for an enjoyable and fulfilling third-person shooter.

    An option to switch between the art styles, if not a complete overhaul of the in-game graphics, would have made a world of difference in making this remaster feel like an expansive, all-encompassing archival effort.

    Loved the original back in 2009 and now loving the remasterd version in 2019. The best game of a film ever made. It's basically a love letterLoved the original back in 2009 and now loving the remasterd version in 2019. The best game of a film ever made. It's basically a love letter to Ghostbusters fans and you can tell it was made with such passion, care and attention. It even has the original Ghostbusters cast doing the voice work and they also helped write the script for it. It's basically the 3rd Ghostbusters film we never got. If you love Ghostbusters you will love this game to bits. Even if you have no idea what Ghostbusters is this is still a great game with a lot of fun to be had. In regards to how different the remaster is to the original. I played the original on the Xbox 360. That was 720p. I'm playing the remaster on the PS4 PRO and as far as i can tell it is 4K (Don't hold me to that though) but it does look much more crisp and clean compared to the original. It also runs much better, much smoother. I paid just £19.99 for a brand new physical copy of this and i'm really happy with my purchase. Hopefully we get a full on proper next gen sequel to this in the near future as this game proves that Ghostbusters games can be done right and be great fun and there is more than enough room for a good sequel. Intsead of pumping out rubbish versions like the quick cash grab 2016 versions. I also recommended watching the Ghostbusters film before playing this as the game visists and features places, people and ghosts from in the film. It will get you even more hyped up to play it.

It's literally what would have happened if they would have filmed a 3rd movie. The music is there plus the great sound effects. It's the real Ghostbusters experience. Strap on your proton pack and don't cross the streams!! Expand
