Ghostbusters!
21 February 2005 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

Ghostbusters is one of the most exciting fighting video games! The characters, the action, the scariness and the sure thrill of excitement makes this game a fun non-stop playing time! Below is a brief look how I think the game is!

Game Play: The game play is very good. There is really basic controls here and is easy to perform. Novice gamers should have a good time here!

Graphics: The graphics are wonderful especially for the Nintendo System! The backgrounds are really beautiful!

Difficulty: The game is easy but as it goes on you find out that it will become more difficult!

Music: The music is great! Just fantastic catchy tunes through out the game! In My opinion its some of the best music ever in a video game!

Sound: The sound is great. Nuff said!

Overall: I have always loved Ghostbusters! If you like scary and action adventure games then I strongly recommend you play this game!
