Ghostbusters gameplay footage

November 19, 2007

Younger gamers out there might not fully appreciate everything that Ghostbusters was. I was 15 when the original hit the theaters in 1984, and it was the first film I went back to see twice. The happening soundtrack, the characters with that great 1980’s lazy-adult vibe to them mainly thanks to Bill Murry, the storyline was fresh and interesting and the special effects were absolutely terrific. To a 15 year old in 1984, the movie really offered the full package. The sequels never really lived up to the high of the original, but now thanks to the miracle of modern computing we get another go at it.

Ghostbusters is coming to every gaming platform you can think of… DS, PC, PS2, PS3, 360 and Wii. Take a peek at some gameplay footage over at G4TV.
Now it’s admittedly going to suck mightily, because movie games always suck mightily. Also, on a personal level I’m guaranteed to think it sucks because as good as Ghostbusters was to my 15 year old self back in 1984, it just doesn’t hold up well. This 38 year old me recently watched it again and it was… lacking in a lot of departments.

I wonder how long until we get a Back to the Future title?
