That is a good shout. Loved all three games. Used to use the PS1 mouse for the Die Hard 2 level, worked a treat.

Also, Batman on the Amiga was class.

OK, So I know it's not retro, but ROCKY on the xbox/ps2/Cube has to be worth a mention. Top notch boxing game using all 5 films as game influence. Training mini games also being great. If you see it cheap, grab it..

Failing that, Goldeneye is also one of the best ever movie games. :D
Bring back Thingy and Rockford!!! Zzap 64 liberation front!!! :):):)

Gotta be Addams Family for the Amstrad CPC. Sure it was a bit blocky, but the graphics were magical to a kid in the early 90s still desperately clinging on to his 8-bit in a world of Amigas, & the gameplay was GREAT :)

Fester's Quest on the NES!

And of course Ghostbusters on the C64 and Robocop on the Speccy.

Now I've never been the biggest fan of the side scrolling beat em ups, but Batman Returns on the Snes (not to be confused with the horrible Megadrive/Mega CD versions) is superb, worth picking up for all you beat em up fans.



I also like Goldeneye, the Super Star Wars Trilogy and Aladin on the Snes.

James Bond 007 on the Gameboy was also great, albeit a bit short.

I seem to remember the c64 cart of that getting rave reviews by the press.
Odd thing is the film was huge flop though.

Ghostbusters without a doubt. ironically I now find all present sim/business related games to be extremely boring...must be something to do with a lack of spooks :P

I'm suprised there's never been a profesional Ghostbusters games for the 360 or PS2/3 - the franchise is still popular today , and there is plenty of scope to make a great game

I agree! I think it would work very well indeed. I think the wrong way to take it would be to make it too simmy (isometric, an over-abundance of everyday chores etc.)

But imagine it: Fully upgradeable proton packs, spending cash on a pimped out Ecto-1, hiring scientists to research new types of spook-blasting devices, getting it on with Janine the receptionist in a saucy work environment...wait....

But yes, if anyone is listening...make it NOW!!

Legend!! :D

Cheers for that Mike, this has actually made my day. I hope the petition is successful and they don't make a turkey out of it.

*awaits a minigame involving Pete Venkman's first encounter with Peck - "rapidly press A to execute strings of smart-arse comebacks and general non-cooperation!"

One of my favourite scenes is the Murray/Moranis telekenisis test at the beginning of the first film- absolutely hilarious!
