You probably missed Ghostbusters: The Video Game when it initially saw release on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Don’t skip out on it this time! The modern rerelease is out today for all consoles, so you have no excuse!
Ghostbusters: The Video Game was released in 2009. It featured a new plot that took place after Ghostbusters 1 and 2, based on a script written by Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd, and had the entire original cast providing voices. It’s the closest we will ever get to an actual Ghostbusters 3, and the game itself wasn’t that bad either.
A sleeper when it was released, the original Ghostbusters: The Video Game now fetches high prices on eBay. The time is right for a re-release on modern consoles, we’d say. Good thing the current rights holders agree with us. Saber Interactive has brought this sucker back!
As the new rookie on the Ghostbusters crew, you’ll team up with your favorite characters from the films, reunited by the voices of Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson as Stantz, Spengler, Venkman and Zeddemore, alongside Annie Potts, Brian Doyle-Murray, William Atherton and Max von Sydow. Manhattan is overrun once more by ghosts, demons and other paranormal creatures unleashed by a mysterious force, and only the Ghostbusters can drive this evil back to whatever dimension it crawled from and save the Big Apple.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game is now available on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC, at a digital price of $29.99 (Epic Games Store claimed they were a god and got to list the game at $24.99.) “Give me a physical copy!” you say….wish granted, but you’ll have to go to Gamestop — they have an exclusive on all physical editions of the game.
