Couldn't resist to try it out knowing that this was probably a lousy game but hoping it would be fun aaaaaaaaand...

Hate to say it but this game is CRAP!
I want a real ghostbusters game and not this augmented reality sh*t!

Like every Year we are getting at least one Movie License Game that is so wrong that I`m even asking myself why someone took the time and Manpower to pick up the Concept that was probably found in some Garbage and thought that it would fit the Franchise. This is so much Crap that I don`t even know where to start...

Instead of paying some respect to an huge Franchise Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast is a perfect Example of what shouldn`t be ever created out of it. The XMG Studio Inc. should be ashamed of what they had done to the Ghostbusters Franchise.

^Hear hear.

These big film companies must have loads of money, but when it comes to film tie-in's they seem to go for the cheapest company out there who come out with a pile of crap. To be fair i havent played this yet but just seeing those screenshots it looks terrible.

Avoiding this like the plague

The gameplay is cute and fun, but I suspect it will grow old more quickly than most.
