I really enjoyed playing this game. It brought back the good ol' days of ghostbusters. Although the game seemed to have repetative gameplay, and the lip sync was terrible, I was really impressed with this game. It is worth the rent.
If it weren't for the wonderful Bill Murray one-liners, Aykroyd's writing, and the help of the original Ghostbuster's cast I would have turned up my nose.
For instance, if this game had been called "Super Ghost Trappers 2000" it wouldn't be worth playing. That may sound hash, but in all honesty without the talent and well written script this game would be easy to pass up. Being able to "hang out" with well animated versions of the Ghostbusters is one of the best aspects of the game. Even if it seems, at times, that they do all the work for you.
To sum it up: the multiplayer is a novelty for a short while, especially if you have friends that also have the game. The career mode is cinematic and involved. The graphics and animation are tight, but otherwise its just another shooter.
