Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed review: We can finally say there is the perfect Ghostbusters game

The last few days have been a major surprise. Not even fed up with wine would I have imagined that Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed would be the hilarious multiplayer what it turned out to be. One of those plays that bet on simplicity to ensure the shot and prove to be more intelligent than all those who cover more than they can.

I imagine to what extent you intended to go Olympically from Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed because I’ve been there too, but I assure you that this is one of those gems that, if you intend to play it with friends, deserves more attention than you think.

Evolve, but with progress

Maintaining the 4 versus 1 formula of the monster against the Evolve hunters, despite being far behind in ambition, it does manage to exploit what the battered 2K game failed to materialize: a progression system that invites you to continue unlocking things while you you laugh with your friends.

playing as a Ghostbusters created and personalized for the occasion, we must hunt down the ghost that swarms through one of the six available scenarios using the classic formulas of the movies. The tracking machine, to discover his position or what object he is hiding behind, the ray gun to tie him up briefly, and the adsorbent trap towards which we will have to drag him to finish him off.

Like the ghost, our role in Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed will be to scare the civilians who walk around the area, enchant objects and, of course, try to fill as many rooms as possible with ghostly ooze, thus causing the building to be completely enchanted and the Ghostbusters They must flee in terror.

Both formulas are so smart and intuitive that, while playing as ghosts, we avoided telling others what it was at the playable level so as not to crush their surprise. Despite the fact that as a tutorial it makes everything very clear, in reality you can completely ignore it and understand in a few seconds what your role is in the game.

communication as Ghostbusters It can be ignored if you decide to play alone or against the computer, but in addition to being infinitely more fun to play with friends, coordinating when you are battling another player seems extremely important.


How to play Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed

Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed, in essence, it is about cornering the enemy so that while two hold him with lightning and a third stuns him with one of the special objects, the fourth throws the trap under the ghost and presses the pedal to catch him. Pushing the bolts back and forth before he manages to get away is the only thing standing between you from one more try or, if you nail it, from the satisfaction of chasing down the ghost.

To help are, of course, gadgets such as a bomb that slows down its movements, a low-range radar capable of marking the exact position of the bug, or glasses that will allow you to see even what object it is hidden from a long distance.

The key, however, remains in the three main weapons that we mentioned a few lines above and, if you want to get fancy, in the various improvements and aesthetic changes that you can apply to all of them to customize a bit at a playable level the type of game that you are looking for You appreciate unlocking things, but it is no less true that at a playable level some improvements are difficult to appreciate.


But the great asset of Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed, as usually happens in these cases, ends up being played as a ghost. Also ideal for those who don’t have anyone to share the experience with but don’t want to leave out the multiplayer mode. Just by unlocking the different ghosts and their corresponding varieties (including Babetas, Slimer for friends), you already have enough for a good handful of hours.

It’s hilarious to scare and fill people with mucus when they don’t expect it, burst their backpacks to disable their rays, and deploy traps in the form of little ghosts, mucus tornadoes or vomiting from a distance when the rest of their companions go to help them. Being a ghost was hardly fun without feeling invincible, and I think they hit the nail on the head with the formula.

Esports Extras’s opinion

With an anecdotal campaEsports Extrasthat will release cinematics as you level up (with several audio and interface problems fixed in extremis with a patch a few hours before this analysis was published), Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed It is one of those games that is difficult to understand when playing without friends, but with them at the controls it is a hilarious formula.

In any case, playing as a ghost against the machine and strangers while trying to unlock everything the game has to offer has turned out to be a lot of fun. Not one of those experiences that you want to burn off in three afternoons, of course, but one of those titles that you go to one night to get together with your friends and have a few laughs virtually.
