Trivia

At one point if Sigourney Weaver had taken a role in the game she would have been the voice of the Ghostbusters computer. The explanation would have been that Egon had programmed it with Dana Barrett's voice to annoy Venkman. See more »

Goofs

When driving to Times Square, Ray remarks on how nice it was "after urban renewal". The urban renewal didn't even start until Rudy Giuliani became mayor in 1994, three years after the game takes place. (PC/PS3/X360 version only.) See more »

Quotes

Winston Zeddemore: [as they drive towards a "situation" while others run away] Just *once*, I wouldn't mind running with these other fools *away* from the trouble.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Where's the fun in that?

Crazy Credits

Despite being made in 2009, the intro movie for this game carries the 1980s Columbia Pictures logo on it, just like the original Ghostbusters movie. However, the Columbia logo seen before the main menu loads is the modern one. See more »

who ya gonna call?
27 September 2011 | by cobra_freak_006See all my reviews

I've been a fan of ghost busters since i was a kid. i saw the movies, watched the cartoon, i was even a ghost buster for halloween when i was 8 years old.

well i was looking through game demo's on xbox live and saw that there was a Ghost Busters video game. so i downloaded the demo and played it. at first i wasn't too impressed. catching the ghosts were fun and awesome but i felt the demo showed it as more of a puzzle game. well 2 years past since then and i was in the store looking for a cheap game to entertain me and i saw it on the shelf and it was pretty cheap. so i decided oh well i guess ill get it. it will entertain me for a while.

while playing it i actually got into it. the characters were just as i remembered. especially Bill Murray's character. and i got really excited to fight the Stay Puft marshmallow man lol.

well yea it is sort of a puzzle game and it seems even more ridiculous than the ghost busters movies but you got to remember Ghost Busters is not supposed to be a horror movie or game. its supposed to be a comedy and this team of misfits just gets into this kind of trouble while investigating and catching the paranormal.
