Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a fun, multiplayer game perfect for all skill levels. Four proton pack wielding Ghostbusters attempt to catch a Ghost haunting unique locations in asymmetrical multiplayer battles (online or offline). As players progress, they will unlock cosmetics and upgrades for both Ghostbusters and Ghosts to evolve their gameplay experiences. The look and feel will deliver to fans an immersive experience in the universe, allowing them to play out their Ghostbusting fantasies. Whether hunting or haunting, the game is easy to learn and fun to master!
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed does something unique with the visual style of the game and the characters. The character design screen is great and allows for some good, standard customization of your character and attire. Additional looks can be unlocked and allow you to give your own spin on the look of a Ghostbuster. The rest of the game looks awesome. The graphics are fun and visually interesting and the first person perspective allows for the player to take in the environments. Playing as a Ghostbuster gives you a great sense of the world of the game while playing as a Ghost gives a different perspective that is equally fun visually.
The controls for the game are straightforward and operate like a standard first person shooter, but there are some unique elements that give the feel of being a Ghostbuster. The Ghost controls have a fun learning curve, but are not difficult enough to effect the enjoyment of the game itself. The world of the game is varied and fun and I enjoyed moving back and forth from jobs to the firehouse and its environment. The story within those moments is fun as well. The controls are easy and feel designed to allow you to pick up a controller and dive right into the action.
I’ve been playing Spirits Unleashed off and on for the better part of two weeks and am still enjoying the experience. As a Ghostbusters fan, it feels like a unique experience every time I log in and the game continues to be compelling and entertaining across the board both individually and with friends. I enjoy the core game play and would love to see some DLC come to the title soon to enhance and broaden the experience.
