The little cupid statue ghosts in the graveyard are the most ANNOYING enemy in the history of next gen gaming. Seriously. You have to deal with five of the little shits at once and you get one hooked, the other four attack and kick your ass. Thank god Ray stayed upright since I got destroyed in that part.

Beat the game, was well worth it. Plan on beating it again. Just hate the spiders (why must EVERY game have them? Seriously? EVERY game has a spider!) and those little cupids.

To overcome the spider's curse, simply quote a Bible verse.

Online play is so much fun. Haven't touched the story mode in two days because I've been too busy with the multiplayer.

The little cupid angel part was annoying, but once you figure out what you have to do, its not that hard.

I rented the Wii version. Very fun. My friend that grew up playing with all my Ghostbuster toys and I are really enjoying the co-op. It's not perfect (there are camera issues, the PKE goggles simply aren't in the game despite being mentioned by the characters and in the instructions...) but it doesn't make me wish I had the more expensive version like I thought it would. Also, there are a lot of funny Nintendo references in the Stay-Puft Skyscraper stage.

EDIT: The PKE Goggles are in it. You just can't use them until the New York Public Library.

Nothing online at all. Just split screen co-op.

My only complaint is that the demo ends just as you capture your first two ghosts at the library.  Then a fmv kicks in showing good ol' Mr Stay Puft, and its over.

The controls are a bit hit and miss, but who cares.

I know, but i thought they might have given you more action than they did.

Bumping this because the remastered version drops October 4th. Multiplayer is being reworked from the ground up and will come later as an update.

I don’t remember playing this as much as I expected originally as I feel I got stuck doing something early and never went back.  That being said, as a GameStop exclusive it is starting at $30 and. My main co-op friend is a huge Ghostbusters guy so if the multiplayer has any improvements, I’m guessing I will be picking this up.

I loved it. Double dipped on the PS2 and 360 versions, and got the Wii version for my girlfriend. I remember some of the puzzles being annoying, and the first or second mission being a chore because of a glitch, but I had a blast. I'm hoping above all that the multiplayer update will include 4-player co-op of the story instead of just "who can bust the most ghosts per round" again.

A 4 person co op will never happen.

Remember most of the game was you being with a npc and then being separated from them till you all reunite for the boss.

That doesn't mean they couldn't allow co-op story, though, it just means that only your character will be shown to you during cutscenes. There's plenty of examples where co-op story missions are allowed but only your personal character is treated as canon. Division 1 & 2 come to mind immediately.
