New Ghostbusters II (1990)
This is the Ghostbusters game every NES fan wanted, even if they didn't care about the Ghostbusters. Pretty much every NES fan disregards the two Ghostbusters games we actually got here in North America. (Because they weren't very good games) This however is a very good game. Very good indeed. You might be asking yourself "how did I not know a bout this game??" Well theres a good reason for that. Unless you lived in Europe during the NES era you didn't get to play this game. Yes, due to licensing reasons the Ghostbusters game we all wanted was stuck in Europe.
You can see from the damn screenshot above that the games graphics are at least five hundred times better than anything from the original game. The same can be said for the music. (To be honest the Ghostbusters theme was overplayed in the original game and I kinda don't love it anymore like I should) The challenge is fair instead of absoultely insane like in the original game. The game controls well. It's got good gameplay. It's like a overhead sidescroller. You go around catching ghosts. AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY YOUR GOD DAMN EQUITMENT. THEY MADE THAT FUCKING EQUITMENT. GODDAMN YOU FUCKERS.
If you are a European NES fan you need to buy yourself a copy of this game. If you are a Ghostbusters fan anywhere in the world you should import it. That's what I plan to do one day soon. I mean really it's truly is the best Ghostbusters game ever. Even better than the new one that came out. You get to play as Rick Moranis! HOW COOL IS THAT (to be honest I'm not too sure if he appears in the new game or what..)
