PS3 GhostBusters: The Video Game

Here’s one I think everyone has been waiting for.

The events of the game occur during Thanksgiving 1991, two years after the events in Ghostbusters II. A new recruit to the Ghostbusters operation is brought on board to help test new proton pack equipment; due to the high risk, Dr. Peter Venkmen insists that the recruit be only named as “Rookie” to avoid developing any personal affection. As Ray introduces the Rookie to the rest of the team, a large-scale PKE shockwave ripples through the city and frees Slimer who flees back to the Sedgewick Hotel where he was first caught. The Ghostbusters are able to recapture the ghost along with several others that have recently appeared, but upon leaving the hotel discover that the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is ravaging Times Square. As they fight the giant creature, they find he has been following a woman, Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn, a museum curator in charge of the Gozer exhibit, and Drs. Egon Spengler and Ray Stantz suspect a connection between her and the ghost appearances. After destroying Stay-Puft, the Ghostbusters try to deduce Ilyssa’s connection, but are cautioned by Walter Peck, now head of the Paranormal Contract Oversight Committee (P-COC), and Mayor Jaques Mulligan about causing too much damage to the city.

The game delivers high impact fun, with an easy to pickup control interface similar to other first person shooters.

The experiance is a fun one, however the game is not very long but does leave it open at the end for another game or maybe a movie.

Multiplay is not without it charm, although the match making interface is a little less professional, the multiplay experiance is a good one. One thing I will say that sucks though, is the lack of PlayStation Network support, but this I mean the multiplay part of the game can’t access your friends list, which means you have to add each person to your in game friend list manually.
