Earlier this year, I started hearing rumors about a third Ghostbusters movie. After Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2, it is nice to start hearing about a new Ghostbusters movie. In the meantime, I found the recently released Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
I’d like to see a third movie, but I agree with what I’ve read Bill Murray has said about the venture: If it’s going to happen, it needs to have a good story.
As for the video game, I was rather impressed by it. I thought the story was good, tying together the plot of each Ghostbusters movie. It also was very good visually. The characters looked and sounded just like the originals. I hadn’t played a video game like this since the days of crazy pixelation, so that was impressive to me. I thought the gameplay was rather straightforward as well. There were four weapon combinations from which to choose, and you only had access to new ones gradually through the game. You only had a main weapon and a secondary weapon at any time. You didn’t have to remember what key is to shoot, what key is to throw grenades, what key is to use your knife and so forth that is the case with some other games I’ve tried playing. I liked it being simple. I do think the gameplay time was less than I would have liked though.
