Ghostbusters (NES) review
"Ghostbusters is, without a doubt, the worst game ever. No game is worse. Not only does it combine bad graphics, bland sound, lame control- but very (x200000000) bad gameplay. I doubt anyone actually played this game, but still I have to review a game that sucks, because it's easier to tell you why a game blows, then why it is great; that's my opinion. "
Ghostbusters is, without a doubt, the worst game ever. No game is worse. Not only does it combine bad graphics, bland sound, lame control- but very (x200000000) bad gameplay. I doubt anyone actually played this game, but still I have to review a game that sucks, because it's easier to tell you why a game blows, then why it is great; that's my opinion.
Graphics: The graphics are bad. They look like something I would find on the bottom of my shoe. If you can actually make out what you're looking at on the screen, you're a better man than me. I think Activision let a retarded monkey program them. That's the only way the graphics could be this bad. The sprites of the road are terrible, the images of the houses are terrible, the design of the car is terrible. The only good thing about the graphics is the nice title screen, marvel at the title screen, turn the game off and burn it.
Sound: I am writing this review from memory, but I can say the sound was one of the better things about this ''game''. The title screen sound is actually an OK version of the theme song, but once you get into the game, the sound really- really starts to annoy. It's just a few bleeps and bloops that Activision tried to pull off as sound effects, but like every other game they made they failed horribly. But it's a step up from the lame graphics they made for this so-called game.
Fun: Oh yes! This game is super fun, if you're mentally insane. I don't care if a game has bad graphics or sound or even bad control, but when it is in the same game you know it must be really horrid. Ghostbusters is not fun, nothing about this game is entertaining or fun or worth playing. The only fun thing about this game is running it over with your car. That's all the fun you will have.
Control: The Control isn't too horrible, but it still sucks. The car goes too slow and ends up hitting things, therefore you die. That little ghostbusters symbol you play on one of the screens goes so slow, you could fall asleep and wake up the next morning and he'd still be at the same place. When you control the two ghostbusters to kill a ghost, or capture it or whatever, they move all awkward. I can't review this whole game, because I didn't get to the part where you go up the stairs, but the game stinks too much to play further.
Gameplay: In Ghostbusters, you do a few things. One: you play as the ghostbusters symbol and move from house to house, or go into the street to level up your car. The other is when you play as the car, gathering stuff to level it up with, then you play as two dumb ghostbusters who try to catch ghosts. All in all, the gameplay bites, just like the rest of the game.
BOTTOM LINE: Ghostbusters is not a good game, not even a medicore one. It's not playable, unless you're into pain or something. It has bad graphics, bad sound, bad control, and bad gameplay all into one bad game. So if your wondering how bad this game is, play it, you'll find out it sucks worse then this review of it- and that's saying a lot.
