Grab the proton backpacks and get on the Ectomobile. The ghosts are loose! Illphonic published after Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds his shallowest but also best asynchronous multiplayer hunt.
Although offers Spirits Unleashed a story with a few boring movies, but that only serves as a hook for the four-on-one matches. As a Ghostbuster newcomer, you’ll work for veterans Ray and Winston – voiced by original cast members Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson. In the base, you activate story scraps, start matches and tinker with your comic-like appearance. You get unlockable (cosmetic) items in the classic way via experience levels. There is no Battle Pass or other real money temptations.
The simplicity also runs through the modes, because here there is only one. The only choice you have is whether you enter the quick play list or choose one of the five maps specifically. These offer nice settings like a museum, a prison or an old-fashioned hotel. Despite the choice of preference, the dice will determine whether you will play as a ghost or as a buster in the approximately five to ten-minute matches.
As a ghost, you have to drive up the spooky meter in the premises. But your little AI scares and causes chaos. To avoid the hunters finding you with their dowsing PKE meter, haunt objects and slip into moving objects like teddy bears and barrels or static bodies like a model pterodactyl. You also have to do this in order to charge your energy more quickly, which you use up through sprints and scary attacks. Despite your stealth skills and the ability to fly, you are constantly on the run. This is not only due to the brisk movement speed of the pursuers. In addition to the proton emitter and the ghost trap, they also have tools such as a grappling hook in their luggage to pull themselves up one floor at selected points. Nevertheless: Nothing works without teamwork. If you have briefly tied up the ghost with your proton emitter despite the difficult to estimate shooting distance, a hunter has to throw out the trap and open it – and then the ghost has to be drawn in. Pay attention to the automated pings or simply use the practical voice chat to get the upper hand in hectic situations. It’s a pity that you’ve already seen everything after a few matches.
