Today we look at a game that was released to run alongside the remake of the film Ghostbusters, it was released on a number of different platforms but today we are specifically looking at the game that was released on the Playstation 4.
Ghostbusters is an action game that is Shooter based game in a 2.5D style format. was developed by FireForge Games and published by Activision in 2016, the game was produced in a very fast turnaround and was released within 8 months after being developed.
The game is based around events that happen after the story of the film. Whilst the game is obviously released to be a tie in with the film the main characters hardly feature. They only appear in the initial narrative where they get sent to Washington DC to save the President from ‘Ghost Assassins.’ The actual characters of the game are four un named heroes who have to save NYC whilst the girls are away from a villain called Rowan from the film, returns to cause havoc.
The game has received severely bad reviews and was named one of the worst games of 2016. The critics blasted it with a variety of negative responses as to why it is so bad – some saying its is boring and lacks variety, others saying it was just made to bring in money and a repetitive game.
