Maybe you have a perfectly good reason for not playing 2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game from Atari and Terminal Reality for the Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, and PC, but if you skipped out on the glorious return of the Ghostbusters, then there's still an opportunity for you to enjoy what the game has to offer thanks to this editing job that boils the game down to cut scenes and key scripted dialog. Featuring a story written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis as well as the voice talents of Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, William Atherton, Alyssa Milano, and Brian Doyle-Murray, the game's plot could essentially be that mythical third movie that some of the franchise's stakeholders have been trying to make for years. The difference is that thanks to computer magic, the boys in gray appear as they would have in their prime back in 1991. When the shadow of Gozer the Gozerian looms over New York once more and the slime starts to rise, who ya gonna call? I think we all know the answer.
