Ghostbusters: The Video Game

Recommended Posts

So, I happened to be looking for something on IMDB, and ran into this trailer. So, I wanted to get some input on what everyone thinks about this upcoming game. Not sure if it's in lieu of a movie, but hey, we'll see. Though my understanding is that Bill Murray won't do another live action movie, but I guess that's because of how old he is now.

Anyway, here's the link:

It won't load because of national restrictions (apparently) but from what I just saw on YouTube, it looks like we could be in for another movie-to-game disappointment. I wouldn't hold your breath. Get a demo when one comes available.

Definitely sensing a rental here. Though I don't really want to judge before trying it. Looks like co-op should be a big part of it y'know?

Though more importantly their is one thing I'd wanna know... Will they let you cross the beams?!

I need one beam crossing, proton accelerating at the speed of light action, or it won't be a true fulfillment.

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis are writing for it, so I doubt it will be terrible. It also has a lot of the original talent from the movie, and it seems like they are focusing on what made Ghostbusters good and not just trying to make a crappy game to make a few bucks.

I dunno, my expectations remain moderately high for this one.

Oh hey. A Ghostbusters game. It's only been, what, 15 or so years since the last one? I hope it's good because otherwise...the outrage will be immense. People might never buy another movie-related game again.

don't forget, also:

the comic book: the TV cartoon

It certainly can't be worse than Street Fighter The Game: The Movie: The Game... that's just redundant. At least Ghostbusters spans different media formats.

This will be better than anything ever made in the history of ever. You must have faith in the talent of the original cast.

Cept for Rick Moranis, he is just a jerk.

On an off topic note, isn't the Street Fighter 4 theme song Exile kinda kick ass?

I freaked out a little bit when I saw how much of the original cast was involved. I sort of hate to encourage people selling me nostalgia, but the clips in the trailer were classic Ghostbusters, and I have high hopes for the rest of the game.

Looks pretty good. I'm pretty psyched actually. I'm sure the gameplay will be a seperate story but I think they have a good blend of new and old here.

It'd be funny if when release date came they just re-released this:

I love this game so much.

For a game that was in the works for a considerable amount of time, and then lost a publisher, and Activision sensing the couldn't whore it out like Guitar Hero, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro, and still find a publisher, and get what any developer would want, more time to develop and polish the game, I'd say that's pretty good.

I'm sure it'll be a solid game once it's released.

Such a shame that Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver didn't participate in voice work for the game.
