Best NES Ghostbusters game by far.
This ghostbusters game really pays tribute to the source material, not just a weird reskin of a platform game like most NES tie-in games. Ending was challenging, but not impossible. Overall the game was very well polished. (As is most HAL games) and beats the actual American released games by a mile. The Repro Cartridge itself was top quality, clean, and ran the first time I popped it into my NES. The label was great, you can't tell it isn't just another NES cartridge in my collection. I'll definitly be ordering some more games.
New Ghostbusters 2
This game plays exactly as the video shows. Surpasses both GB games on the NES by far. It's a shame this was never released because it would of definitely been one of the most popular games on the NES and in the arcade. Has a Fester's Quest type of feel to it. Once you get the hang of lining your guy up right with the ghost and hitting the B button to trap, its a pretty easy going game with a lot of variety. Definitely tributes the movie well and is a very fun game. As always OCD supplied a flawless cartridge. If ever in doubt, OCD is the ONLY place for reproductions and The New GB2 should definitely be considered to own & play.
New GB2 is a great!
Now, this is a fun little game. OCD did a great job with the cartridge as always! On to the review. Graphics: Simplistically awesome! Big, 8 bit apartment buildings, sewers, and rooftops accompany 'cute'Japanese style ghostbusters - Winston, Ray, Egon, Peter, and Louis all have small bodies and big heads. The overhead look of this game reminds me of NES Zelda. Control: Spot on. Everything controls well. You choose 2 of the 5 'busters' and traverse the 5 of so levels busting ghosts and fighting a boss ghost (mostly from the movie) at the end. B fires the proton beam for one guy, A opens the trap from the other. You can press A, B, and Start at the startup menu to change this or other options, like difficulty. Closing: This game is great BECAUSE it's so, so simple and addictive (some would say repetitive, grant you). I love that you can just pick it up and play immediately. Can be difficult, so you need to perfect your busting skills; then, you'll be fine. Glad we can finally play this great GB2 game on our NES consoles. Shame the U.S. never got it back in the day. A 2 player option would have been good, too, but, ah well, one can't have it all.
