    Cool, mang! I am not so much excited for the game because it's Ghostbusters; it just looks like it could be a good game. Got the Wii version on the way, too, so I'll be doin' a lotta ghost busting this week. [​IMG]

    had a really quick gander at the first mission seems quite fun
    (ghost busting is ofc everyones dream so how can this not be fun [​IMG])

    but seriously from what i saw you drive to the mission use beams to catch the ghost then throw down the device that captures the ghosts graphics arent bad

    ill have to play it more before i can say how awesome it is [​IMG]

    Played the first mission great graphics the buttons are perfect and the use of the touch screen is just right. looks like a great game so far only i fear the missions will be repetitive

    If it uses a lot of touchscreen, it's gonna be screwy for me. In the options it has left and right handed selections.....I chose left-handed since that is what I am predominantly, but then it had me trying to drive Ecto1 with the buttons, which quite difficult to control.

    I'm gonna start it over using right handed controls and see how that works.

    Random - initial - thoughts

    Like the graphics when they are close up, but when it's is in the action they are far to tiny. The actual size of the game isn't very big ( 56mb trimmed ) so they could have put some voices in there somewhere. On the subject of sound, the music clips are far to short and some repeat, jarringly. Ecto1 is like steering a shopping trolley, it goes all over the place. I was expecting to just pickup and play but in an attempt to give the game some depth I think they have gone to far for the target audience and may put a lot of people off with the management aspect.

    Been waiting ages to play this, but I am not finding it engaging, I think its the lack of voices, the humour just isn't funny when its written down, will give it the benefit of the doubt and try it again in tomorrow.

    Um... no. This game has been getting some hype and definitely wouldn't count as shovelware.

    Oh man, this game sucks. I was really looking forward to it. I'll try to muddle through more of it later, but so far, wow, so disappointing. Handling of the hearse blows, and everything just feels counter-intuitive. The music is comprised of very short, very transparent loops.

    I had this for the Atari 2600, came out around the same time.

    ...gotta wait for the missus to get off the big PC so I can properly check this one out.
