Ghostbusters images

Ghostbusters images

Atari again, and this time some new images of the much awaited Ghostbusters. This definitely seems to be a game done for the fans of the first movies, and done right.

Looks excellent, they did a great job keeping the actors accurate and whatnot. Might be a fun game.

Definitely, and if it plays well people may forgive the rest of the look.

I keep wanting to find the screenshots of the cancelled Ghostbusters game, but I think we lost them after this one was announced.
I remember it looking much more graphically ambitious.
Oh well, this will have to do, hehe.

It's the same game, but they had to find a new publisher. So what you see here, is from the same game.

really?
If I remember correctly the first batch of images (which are no longer available here) were from a different team and the game was dropped by the publisher.
Then this team showed up with another (quite different looking) game and a different publisher.

I don't know, I could be wrong but I'll never know until I find those damn images.

you're right

"In January 2007, videos that showed a Ghostbusters game in action for the Xbox 360 surfaced on the internet. Though the tech demos were legitimate according to developer ZootFly, trouble with copyright issues arose as no license had been granted. In order to avoid possible lawsuits, ZootFly will be instead developing a similar game named TimeO based on their Ghostbusters prototype"

terminal reality are making this version. they do look different as well. zootfly's was a lot darker and realistic looking, TR's version is more cartoony imo. they both had a major focus on physics tho and objects flying around all over the place.

one thing that botheres me is that there seems to be a distinct lack of shadows and lighting in the game...considering they're using proton packs you'd think it'd be scattering light and shadows everywhere....i guess its a limitation of the engine or something?
