The Wii version follows the same general story, but its wacky character models make this look like a wildly different title. The camera lock-on and Wii-exclusive split screen co-op are nice additions, but the simplified combat and truncated levels ultimately leave this game a little flat. The Wii provides a Ghostbusters experience, but it's not the Real Ghostbusters experience.
