I’ve been going on something of a Ghostbusters nostalgia trip lately, perhaps in part to all the talk of a third movie in the works. After re-watching the first two movies, I decided to slip Ghostbusters: The Video Game into my Playstation 3, having previously overlooked it thanks to fairly average reviews.
Sure, the game isn’t perfect, but it’s just the fix I needed. Just having all the original actors voicing the characters brought a smile to my face, and the mechanics used to capture the ghosts was authentic to the movies and quite satisfying.
Interestingly, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis did a bit of work on the script, which seems like it was lifted from an original outline for a proposed Ghostbusters 3 movie.
And heck, if this is what Bill Murray needed to convince him to do Ghostbusters 3, then I’m all for it.
