For a budget priced remaster, it’s still a fun time, especially if you’re a fan of the Ghostbusters. The talent behind the game and story is decent enough even if the jokes aren’t as good as the original film. The gameplay loop can feel outdated, and the missing co-op mode stings, but the promise of it coming for free is still there. I still enjoyed my time with the game and people who have never experienced it, or haven’t seen it in a long time, will still find some enjoyment out of it, and you’re not breaking the bank while you do pick it up.
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.
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.
