If someone told me this was an interactive movie and not a game, I would probably believe them.
First, the graphics.
The graphics of this game are beautiful looking for it's time (2008-2009). It matches the likes of those really graphical games on the Xbox, even today. Sure, it lags a little on the PC and the PC only, but that's only during those extremly graphical moments in the game.
For game mechanics, the creators used the game engine to it's full potential, and then some. This allowed the game for some surprising scripted events, and when I say "surprising", I mean it in more ways than one. There are some very good jumpscares involving things from shelves falling over to a gruesome-looking ghost popping up in your face out of nowhere. I'll admit, this game made me jump at some points in the game, and even nervous. The equipment you gain access to is also very well done.
Speaking of which, this simulates being a Ghostbuster very well. The game-exclusive equipment fit the Ghostbusters universe perfectly. A few memorable ghosts make a return in this game, like Slimer, for example.
For voice acting, I am very surprised the creators were able to get the original actors to voice themselves. The voice acting never sounds out of place throughout the game.
And finally, the story. There are easter eggs in-game that are references to both movies, so it feels like the game is a third movie. Including one part in-game when Egon mentions the "Ellis Island incident", a tip of the hat to when the Ghostbusters literally walked the Statue of Liberty to a museum that was guarded by a barrier of slime in the second movie.
Overall, I give this game a 9/10. There are flaws in-game, such as repetitive objectives, but a very good game overall. If you are a Ghostbusters fan, I highly recommend this game. And even if you aren't a fan, you should at least give the game a try.
