The Ghostbusters game was recently released for a series of platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and Windows PC.
The new game is part of the action-adventure genre. It is essentially a remastered version of the original Ghostbusters: The Video Game, that was released for consoles of the last generation. Its aim is still the same and that is to bring you closer to the powers that are out there.
Just like before, you get to play alongside Egon, Ray, Peter and Winston. You also get to relive the classic Ghostbusters movies, since the design of the setting is the same as them. The design is further brought to life, with the addition of enhanced textures and lighting.
The gameplay revolves around a supernatural energy pulse that has increased the number of ghosts in the city. This leaves you with no choice but to pull out the Protons and start busting the ghosts. At the same time, you will have to figure out why all of this is happening.
To get more out of the Protons, you must only use them for short a duration or otherwise, they will overheat and stop functioning. Upgrades will be available for them and they will let you overcome such limitations; for example, some will increase the strength of the beam and others will reduce venting times.
When you use the P.K.E. meter and Paragoggles, you switch to a first-person perspective. With these tools, you can highlight supernatural objects and get to the locations that the ghosts are in. This is mainly down to the fact that the meter and goggles can detect and visualise paranormal activity.
