This marginally prettier and inconsistent remaster doesn’t really make for a profoundly different or improved experience over the 2009 original, and there was a lot of room for improvements that could’ve made it more enjoyable to play through and appreciate all of that fan service. Ghostbusters was a great tie-in back in 2009 but this remaster doesn’t really make for a vastly improved experience.
Any fan of the franchise will enjoy it for its authenticity, references, behind-the-scenes insights, and the opportunity to finally see what happens next as they accompany the original crew on another mad caper overflowing with ‘buster banter straight from the creators themselves. Those unfamiliar should still have a good time, owing to the generally strong gameplay mechanics (despite some botched implementation), atmospheric moments, and set-piece encounters that together comprise a campaign refreshing in its straightforward linearity.
Fans of the original Ghostbusters: The Video Game will probably enjoy this, even if it’s just for a trip down memory lane and to see the cast again and visit some iconic locations. But due to its repetitive combat, insufferable artificial intelligence, and dull gameplay, I would advise first-time players to maybe pick up something else if you’re looking for an enjoyable and fulfilling third-person shooter.
