Ghostbusters: The Video Game is a surprisingly solid licensed product that combines everything fans of the product love with some solid gameplay elements to make something that casual and dedicated fans of Ghostbusters will want to own, though it's not without its flaws. The story is fun and funny, the visuals are solid and well done, the audio is exactly what you'd want from a Ghostbusters product, and the gameplay is easy to pick up and work with. The game is fun in both single and multiplayer, and there's a ton of charm to the product that fans of the franchise will love to death.
The variety is a little limited, however, and the controls and mechanics, though solid, lack the polish of better third-person shooters. There are also a few annoying mechanics, such as working with the Capture Beam to move anything other than a ghost, or being knocked down a decent amount of the time, that might put off someone who isn't much of a fan. Fans, however, have no reason not to pick this up as soon as possible and play it like nuts, as Ghostbusters is arguably the best game based on the franchise, ever, and it's a blast from start to finish, period.
