Who doesn’t love Ghostbusters? The cheesy 80s music, the ridiculously over-the-top special effects, and the bumbling antics of Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz and Winston… Churchill? (IMDB says his last name was Zeddmore. Do they ever say that in the movie? I certainly don’t remember it.) quickly became cultural icons from 1984 and well into the nineties. Cartoon shows were created. Delicious flavors of Kool Aid were spawned. The merchandising potential was endless.
So then fast forward about twenty years when Ghostbusters writers Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd got the old team together and decided to produce a game as a sequel to Ghostbusters 2. Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson all gave eachother one final high-five and teamed up to do some of the best voice acting available in current generation games. But don’t go busting out the proton packs just yet. Ghostbusters has its share of problems as well, and you’re not going to be able to make them go away by stashing them in a containment unit.
