The lights are on
Atari and Sony Pictures are bringing Ghostbusters back from beyond once again, partnering for the downloadable release Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.
Sanctum of Slime puts players in the jumpsuit of a rookie hired by the original busting team. All characters will be entirely new in Sanctum of Slime – none of the original cast will return via voice or likeness.
Up to four players can use their proton packs to take out various apparitions and abnormalities locally or online. A bigger arsenal will be needed to topple bosses, including the plasma inductor and the fermion shock.
We’re also promised time behind the wheel of the Ecto-3.
Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is in development by Wanako and is scheduled to release on PSN, Xbox Live, and PC spring of 2011.

I liked the game. This could be good, although I would miss the original cast. It wont be the same without the original Ghostbusters.

Darnit... I liked playing as a rookie to all of the original characters in Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
But I guess it's worth a shot. It can't be too bad, right?
I think it needs to be said, GI ain't afraid of no ghost.
There may not be the original cast but at least I can play with 3 other friends. Switch me on.
I don't see this being anything more than a cheap cash-in. Without Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd writing the script (like the did for the last game) and without featuring ANY of the original 'busters...forget it, this is going to be crap.
This will be a good time killer with some friends. Love me some Ghostbusters....though will be lacking without the originals.....I'll just think of it as the old school Ghostbuster games that didn't have any voice acting anyway
I thought the Ghostbusters game was really enjoyable. Shame it didn't get more notice.
Never played the original game, although it looked impressive I guess time just got the best of me. But, this looks like it could be pretty fun.
Time to bust some more ghosts.
The first game was pretty awful apart from the involvement of the original cast, so I have little hope for this game.
This is cool but it just won't be the same without the original Ghostbusters. I loved being able to catch ghost side by side with them in the first game.
I don't know if ghostbusting will be the same without the original Ghostbusters.
