I'll be the first to admit that I was in love with Ghostbusters as a child and when news hit that a game would be coming out, I was eagerly waiting for its release. About two or three days prior to the game coming out, I started to reconsider purchasing this game as the past few games I had bought ended up being duds (more or less just MLB2K9). In the same token, when games based upon movies are released, they usually fall short of the hype behind them. Upon taking Ghostbusters hope, I was actually surprised at how good of a game it is. Although there are some repetitive parts and the graphics tend to drop off in certain areas, this game certainly fulfilled my need of returning to childhood memories while playing an enjoyable game.

One of the best features of this game is wrangling ghosts into the trap. To keep things from getting repetitive Ghostbusters gives you several different weapons to help weaken the ghosts and then 'bag em' and tag em'. Additionally the voice overs in this game are spot on, with each character giving witty comments as they did in the movies. Although I would have like to have seen a game with more free roam (perhaps a GTA based Ghostbusters in which the Ghostbusters travel in the Ecto cruiser to mission locations - gamers dreams I suppose), this game will certainly provide you with an enjoyable experience and make you want to pop in the movies and take a trip down memory lane!
