Overall, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is still a good game. Even as someone who never played the original and has only a passing interest in the franchise I ended up mostly enjoying myself. Aside from the terrible AI and the two majorly broken segments of gameplay it literally feels like playing a Ghostbusters movie. If you're not obsessed with squeezing everything out of it I recommend playing on casual difficulty, since the AI is less of an issue in this case.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is still a pretty good game if you can look past some of its niggling issues. At the end of the day, it lets you battle the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, which is all a Ghostbusters fan probably wants to do. It’s just a shame that its gameplay wasn’t a tweaked a little to make it a little less janky, and that so many of its cutscenes now feel so out of place quality-wise. Also, if you were fan of the original game’s multiplayer action, you’re out of luck.
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.
