Introduction



Ghostbusters: The Video Game is a 2009 action game based on the Ghostbusters franchise. The game was released after several delays in development and multiple publisher changes.

The game follows the new recruit in the Ghostbusters. The game features elements of typical third-person shooters. The plot is set around Thanksgiving in 1991, with the Ghostbusters team training the player's character while investigating paranormal activities in New York City.

Many of the principal cast members from the films were involved in the game's production. Each of the actors who portrayed the Ghostbusters in the films, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, William Atherton, Brian Doyle-Murray, and Annie Potts lent their voices and likenesses to the in-game characters. Ghostbusters: The Video Game also contains the soundtrack from the original Ghostbusters film, along with various characters, locations, and props featured in the films. Dan Aykroyd considers the game to essentially be the 3rd movie in the Ghostbusters franchise.

What? You're not playing it on Hard mode?
Hard mode offers absolutely nothing over any of the other modes, so I'll be playing on Normal mode.

Wait, why aren't there HD videos?
While I do have the capability of recording HD videos, Ghostbusters is the kind of game that doesn't benefit much - if at all - from being seen in HD. So I'm going to save time and bandwidth by presenting it in SD.

Are you going to do any multiplayer?
The multiplayer has all but died since the game was released in June '09,. However if 3 PS3 goons show up and want to take part, I'm sure we could arrange some games and I would be more than happy to.
