Familiar Voice Heard In New Ghostbusters Trailer
February 06, 2009
I continue to have high expectations of Atari's upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game, and a new trailer has been released that shows off some of the trap dynamics that come into play when it's time to finish busting a ghost. At this rate of ongoing interest, I fear I may have unrealistically high standards for this game to meet when it releases in June. Like I've said before, if there was ever a film franchise that deserved a stellar video game adaptation, it's Ghostbusters.
Did you note the familiar gravelly voice of Brian Doyle-Murray in the new trailer? He turns up in the game as the mayor (What? David Margulies was unavailable to reprise his role as Lenny?) Bill Murray's brother tends to turn up in plenty of classic movies; you might remember him from such films as Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters II, Scrooged, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and Caddyshack. Do you see why I expect so much of this game? Every time I see a new trailer I find something new to excite me.
