Indeed, not only is it fun to play, but a faithful treatment and genuine expansion of the original property. As it is with good works in any field , this didn't happen by accident. I wish I knew who exactly was responsible for this treatment, just so I could send them a single rose with a note attached saying "You rock and don't stop". I suspect the responsibility largely rests within the involvement of Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis; children tend to prefer being in the care of their rightful parents. Regardless of origins, let's take a look at the elements that make Ghostbusters such a great adaptation."
