Ghostbusters is long awaited action-adventure game. In our presentation today we will share our honest and objective opinion about the game.


One of the best things in this game is the level design. The developers nDreams have done a really good job by recreating some of the most famous parts of San Francisco, like the Golden Bridge, Chinatown, with their unique design, the Columbia University of New York, and Alcatraz prison, which is really different from the original one. Overall, these parts of the real world make the game more realistic and alive.

The team also put a lot of effort into creating the types of ghosts as you will see different kinds of enemies, some of them with specific skills like the big pink one – Penny, that heals the surrounding ghosts. Some of them explode when close by, others disarm you, and you are not able to shoot before removing them from your arms.

Overall, the world has been well designed and will enjoy even the most demanding gamers.
