Ghostbusters - Terminal Reality - PS3
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 October 2009, 5:03 am
An odd game this.  In order to accurately mimic its source material, the developers have put together some pretty unwieldy controls here, since much like the characters in the movie, the game is designed so that you spend as much time accidentally destroying your surroundings as you do actually hitting your target.  If this weren't a game based on the Ghostbusters, I'd likely be panning the spastic fishing game style controls of trying to wrangle a ghost into a trap, but instead the game stands as a fine tribute to the movie, even if it's not a particularly good game.  Honestly, I'm not sure how you could do the controls better and still stay true to the license, so I've been inclined to give them a pass.

I have a few other nitpicks as well.  To start with, while you can't exactly play a game based on a movie from the 80's and complain that it relies to heavily on nostalgia, I do wish they did a little less rehashing of the movie.
