10 Best Ghostbusters Games, Ranked
Are you looking for the best Ghostbusters games? Here's a list full of nostalgia that'll surely fulfill your needs. Happy ghost hunting!
Ghostbusters is one of the few classic franchises that are continuing to the day, and it is all thanks to the ever-growing fanbase of the series. The franchise first started in 1984 with the release of the Ghostbusters movie, which will be 40 years old in the next few years.
RELATED: Lingering Questions We Have About Ghostbusters: Afterlife
Ghostbusters have left a mark on everything in the last three decades, from common items like school bags and plates to general media like films, shows, comics, and video games. There are over 20 different Ghostbusters games out there, but not all have been amazing. However, the few in this list are certainly worth a look.
10 Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime
Not many remember this game from the seventh generation of video game consoles, but here it is. Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime came out in 2011 to a mediocre reception. It is a co-op shooter with pretty unusual gameplay for the time.
In Sanctum of Slime , players control the characters in a top-down angle, which isn't exactly a bird's eye view. The gameplay revolves around going from one room to another and catching ghosts. The best part about this game is the cutscenes, which are entirely in comic book style.
9 Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed
It's wild to think that some of the best games of certain franchises are Lego titles — but it's true. Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is a Windows/mobile title that came out in early 2020. What's unique about this one is the fact that it's a turn-based strategy title. Unlike the usual Lego games, this one is all about a bit of strategic role-playing.
While Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed isn't strictly a Ghostbusters-only title, it features one of the best Ghostbusters experiences there is. It also features the original characters from the movie .
8 Ghostbusters World
Ghostbusters World was one of the best mobile games in the series yet. The game came out in 2018 and was an augmented reality title for iOS and Android. Players would assume the role of a recruit, and would have to catch ghosts in a vertical phone view.
RELATED: Ghostbusters: Afterlife — Cool Callbacks To The Older Movies
With 3D graphics and FPS gameplay, this title was looking to reinvent Ghostbusters games. Sadly, it only lasted two years, and was shut down in mid-2020. Back in the day, a lot of people believed this game had huge potential. It's a pity that the developers canceled it.
7 Extreme Ghostbusters: Code Ecto-1 (2002)
The Extreme Ghostbusters series is one of the most-unique Ghostbusters games out there. While there are quite a few games from this series, the best one, hands down, is Extreme Ghostbusters: Code Ecto-1.
The game came out in 2002 for Gameboy Advance, and featured 12 platform levels and four regions. The detailed yet retro look of these games still stands the test of time, and the gameplay is fun as well . The game is a nod to the retro title, with it being a side scroller and a top-down vehicle game.
6 Ghostbusters (1990)
Speaking of retro games, here's Ghostbusters 1990 . It's a Platformer and Shoot-'em-up game that came out for the legendary Mega Drive. The game is full of nostalgia, has original characters, and features amazing 8-bit music. It's a fun little side-scroller for the time and features gameplay similar to Metal Slug.
Ghostbusters 1990 is simple, straightforward forward, and easy-to-master. One of the best things about this game is that it doesn't overstay its welcome, and offers a variety of boss-battles.
5 Ghostbusters (1984)
No game from the series can match the hype of the original 1984 Ghostbusters . Agreed, the graphics are long outdated, and the gameplay isn't up to the mark. But it is a cult-classic none the less. Back then, the world of gaming was still unknown waters, and anything that came out was much appreciated. Ghostbusters launched a few months after the first movie, which meant it carried the film's hype. The game is one of the most nostalgic experiences any Ghostbusters fan can have in 2021.
4 The Real Ghostbusters
When it comes to one of the most fun Ghostbusters games, this one has to be up there. The Real Ghostbusters is a classic Shoot-'em-up game that has solid gameplay. Players control the character in the top-down view and quite literally shoot the ghosts up.
RELATED: Things That Made No Sense In Ghostbusters: Afterlife
Like many games from the 1980s, it was all about the high score while progressing through the levels. The Real Ghostbusters is what the Sanctum of Slime and Ghostbusters (2016) tried to copy. Sadly, they probably forgot that The Real Ghostbusters is a 1987 Arcade title that was fun for its time.
3 LEGO Dimensions
Here is another LEGO game that makes the list, and for a very good reason. Lego Dimensions is a Toys-to-Life video game where characters from different franchises crossover. It's full of action, platforming, and the usual LEGO games-like gameplay.
The game came out in 2015, and featured a Ghostbusters world. In LEGO Dimensions, players can play as the original characters and Abby Yates from Ghostbusters (2016). The in-game Ghostbusters world offers quite a few locations for the players to explore.
2 Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters™
Who would've thought that a construction and management simulator would be one of the best Ghostbusters experiences out there? Planet Coaster is a 2016 game and is one of the best one in its genre.
The game features quite a few add-ons, and one of them is the Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters™. The game is all about building different theme parks and roller-coasters. But the Ghostbusters DLC takes that experience to a whole new level. Most fans of the series will have a joyful ride playing this one.
1 Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered
Lastly, there's the one video game that truly embodies what it feels like being a ghostbuster, and that is the 2009 video game. Ghostbusters: The Video Game , despite its flaws, is the best in the series for various reasons, and the biggest one is the gameplay.
The 10th anniversary remaster of the game takes that same experience to PS4, XBOX One, and PC. Not only does this game look polished, but it also plays like a proper action-adventure third-person shooter. The decent storyline, challenging gameplay, and original characters make this one the best Ghostbusters video game ever made.

10 Best Ghostbusters Video Games, Ranked
We take a look at the very best games for busting those ghosts. Why ya gonna call?
Ghostbusters : Afterlife, the latest movie in the franchise, seems to be going over well with fans who can't get enough of the slime and spirit-packed series. Ever since the release of the original Ghostbusters film the fandom has had a desire to experience the fear and excitement of taking down ghosts any way they can.
RELATED: Best Games Like Pokemon GO
The video game medium hasn't always been kind to the franchise, but it does have more than a handful of games worth playing and experiencing if you simply want more of the world you fell in love with. We take a look at which are the best.
10 Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime
The twin-stick shooter is a unique genre to set a Ghostbusters video game in, yet developers Behaviour Santiago attempted just that with Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime.
The game wasn't perfect and had its fair share of criticisms, but is considered a fun arcade experience. Critics said it was a decent game uplifted by the Ghostbusters license, and in a world where Ghostbusters games don't come around that often, especially as twin-stick shooters, it may be worth picking up and spending a night with.
9 LEGO Dimensions: Ghostbusters
LEGO Dimensions was an action-adventure title that worked to bring together licenses and franchises from different parts of the entertainment industry. Though it wasn't specifically a Ghostbusters game, the franchise was one of the most involved.
There was a LEGO Dimensions Ghostbusters story pack, level pack, and multiple fun packs that all provide you with numerous physical LEGO builds and toys, as well as content in the game itself. The game reviewed well but just couldn't sell well enough to justify its ongoing development.
8 Extreme Ghostbusters: Code Ecto-1
The Game Boy Advance was home to a wonderful Ghostbusters video game titled Extreme Ghostbusters: Code Ecto-1. It had plenty of variety as the core of the game was a mix of both shooting and platforming mechanics, with some races from a top-down perspective thrown in.
RELATED: Best LEGO Games, According To Metacritic
The game had 12 levels in total and four regions. It was based on the animated show of the same name, which ran for a single 40-episode season in 1997.
7 Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters
You would assume that a licensed DLC pack for a game like Planet Coaster would simply be a bunch of cosmetic items featuring iconic branding, but that wasn't the case with the Ghostbusters DLC pack .
This DLC included a new story-focused challenge, plenty of new building elements such as rides, scenery, and characters, and new game mechanics. In a huge surprise, it also had Dan Aykroyd and William Atherton reprising their roles as Raymond Stantz and Walter Peck, respectively.
6 Ghostbusters (1990)
In 1990 Sega developed and published a game for their Sega Genesis and Mega Drive systems that was simply titled Ghostbusters, but was unrelated to the 1984 title of the same name.
As a platforming shoot 'em up it delivered in many ways and was praised for its intro sequence, character sprites, and impressive graphics. The knock on the game was that it lacked replay value, but Ghostbusters fans rewatch the films numerous times, so it's unlikely they ever got bored of this classic must-play.
We know that Fortnite is not a Ghostbusters game, however, it does feature some of the highest fidelity assets the franchise has ever seen in gaming.
The ability to have a unique Ghostbuster equipped with all of the appropriate tools, including a proton pack and a ghost trap, make it feel like a worthy addition to this list. When Fortnite holds the seasonal events with spirits and ghouls and you're wearing the Ghostbusters skin , it's hard to deny how strong the synergy and vibes are.
4 The Real Ghostbusters Arcade
The Real Ghostbusters may not be as beloved as the films, but the animated series did enough to provide fans with more of the world they loved.
This is a shoot 'em up style arcade game named after and loosely based on the animated series. It was released in 1987 under the same name as the show. The game received mediocre reviews, with most of the criticism being lobbed at the overall art style and art direction of the game. It is considered to be a fun time, though, especially for fans of the animated series.
3 Ghostbusters (1984)
The classics are hard to beat and in the world of Ghostbusters, nothing is as classic as the 1984 title that was released on the Commodore 64, Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, and many other home consoles.
RELATED: Hilarious Ghostbusters Comics Only True Fans Will Understand
Not only did the game review well, but it saw great sales success as well. It was said that the game captured both the theme and feel of the movie for the first time and that it was a blast to play. Ghostbusters was also said to have excellent pacing and was supremely polished.
2 Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered
It's not hard to release a remaster of a game that touches up some of the flaws of the original and presents it with better graphics. For Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered the real issue is that modern game design has evolved past what this game originally offered.
Upon its original release, it was average in terms of reviews and the same is true of its remaster. As with how it was when the original was released, if you love Ghostbusters you're going to love this game, otherwise, it's pretty much a sale or bargain bin title.
1 Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Ghostbusters: The Video Game is an experience that reviewed generally in the mid-to-high 70s, but fans consider it to be the best gaming experience the franchise has to offer.
It was well regarded for adapting many of the aspects of the film franchise in a way that translated perfectly to the video game medium. Its lack of local co-op seems like poor oversight for a series focused on teamwork, but fans of Ghostbusters are going to enjoy every second of this adventure that was originally released in 2009.
