“Don’t cross the streams.” “There is no Dana, there is only Zuul” “Are you a god?” “We’re ready to believe you!” If these quotes mean nothing to you, then you can probably skip over the rest of this review as there is a bit of basic Ghostbusters knowledge you’ll need to fully understand this. In what can be described as pure fan service, Ghostbusters: The Video Game does everything it can to give you what is basically the third Ghostbusters movie.
