Summary

You want to be a Ghostbuster?

The Good

This game was just plain fun. You got to blast the ghosts, and the sounds were impressive. I'd never before (and never since) had the PC speaker used to play clips like this game did. Most samples were directly from the movie, and they didn't even sound bad! This was the dawn of the sound card, but they still bothered to make the PC speaker folks feel welcome. I'm still impressed.

The Bad

It was short and pretty simplistic, but, that can sometimes be a good thing. :)

The Bottom Line

A nice quick dive into the life of a Ghostbuster.
