Guide By: Fizzmatix
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 6/10
This is the perfect game for anyone who loves Ghostbusters, before you start reading this guide I must stress that 2 achievements are currently unobtainable due to some error in coding or a bug in the game. You will not be able to earn "No Job to Big' or "Payday", however hard you try the requirements for these achievements just can't be met at this moment in time.
Before you start playing your going to have to decide which route you want to take, you can either do the harder route or the easier route. The easy route is playing the game on easy and getting all collectables, ghosts scans, water fountains and $3 million achievements. The harder route will involve the same but playing through on professional and then going back.
The achievements for this game aren't to complicated and shouldn't prove to much of a challenge but if your after a 100% completed game you may want to hold off until the game has been patched. Both easy and hard difficulties are quite easy and shouldn't cause you to many issues as you battle your way through all the ghosts and ghouls.
|We Came, We Saw...||50|
|Complete the game on 'Casual' or 'Experienced' difficulty.|
Completing the game on casual shouldn't be to difficult for most players. Most players should do at least one run through on casual to get a feel for the game and to learn the levels.
|Are You A God?||100|
|Complete the game on 'Professional' difficulty.||(14)|
As most hard difficulties prove a challenge for some players this might be quite a challenge for some and not so for others. Just take your time and play through the game on casual to get a feel for all the controls and how everything works. Each ghost will need to be approached with in a different method and each creature you run into will need to be tackled with caution.
