    Teh trouble with this, is trying to capture the spirit of the movie, without getting repetative...

    I think we can all agree the original Atari 2600 and NES games are addictive. If only to see if there is a way to beat the game. After that, it was hit and miss.

    The Genesis game was forgettable, as was the arcade game.

    Personally, I'd like to see one along the lines of Luigi's Mansion, we're each ghost has it's own 'puzzle' or weakness to unlock before busting it.

    The Sega Master System version was the best one of the original ghostbusters game. They put an ending on it wherey ou had to climb the building, and then you had to fight Gozer, (who I never beat). I always thought it was a fine game

    What about the C64 game? Best ghostbusters game ever (it even had speech!).

    The C64, NES and SMS games were all the same game and were a blast when I was a kid.

    I also enjoyed the platforming antics on Genesis with the goofy, pseudo-SD characters and the pretty killer, Heavy Barrel-like, arcade game.

    The only GB game I found a bit sketchy was NES Ghostbusters 2 which was pretty blah.

    That old C64 game rocked! The best was when the opening started and they had the bouncing ball so you could sing along [​IMG].

    Liked the Genesis one. Sure it wasn't exactly pure ion pack Ghostbustin'(tm), but it had an interesting storyline compared to most games since it didn't follow the movies at all.

    I mean, none of them were River City Ransom, but what is? [​IMG]

    I remember the NES game. I made it to Dana's building, and I don't think I made it to the second floor. If I remember correctly, it was tapping the buttons as fast as you can to move forward....or am I just making this up?

    Count me in as another HUGE fan of the old C64 classic: great game!

    Most worthless piece of equipment: vision enhancement goggles - didn't need them, didn't want them!

    Anybody have a dollup? [​IMG]
