General consensus seems to be that it's a good game, but nothing to mess your pants over. How much you enjoy it also scales with how fond you are of the source material, of course.

Just so you know, the PC version doesn't have the multiplayer/co-op modes because the developers were too lazy or weren't provided the funding to port it over to the PC version along with the single player content.

The decision to exclude multiplayer support from the PC version of Ghostbusters was a result of lacking resources and a desire to make the console editions "the best that they could be," Dan Irish--CEO of multiplayer developer Threewave--has explained.

"Multiplayer for the PC version of Ghostbusters is something that Threewave and [single-player developer] Terminal Reality always wanted to do," he told Big Download.

"When we looked at the resources necessary to pull off multiplayer on the consoles and the PC, it became a question of what could we do and still be excellent in our execution," Irish added. "Our focus was on making the console version the best that they could be."

Only the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of Ghostbusters, which arrived in North American this week, sport online multiplayer, though the PC version is half their price. A separate developer, Red Fly, handled the PlayStation 2, Wii and Nintendo DS editions.
It's a bit of a slap in the face for PC gamers...¬_¬
