5 reasons why Ghostbusters: The Videogame is going to be lame

1. It’s been in frequent development limbo – never a good sign

In its chequered development history, Ghostbusters: The Videogame has changed publishers’ hands like the proverbial hot potato… or possibly a poisoned chalice. Over the past few years, it has passed through the doors of Zootfly, Sierra, Vivendi, Activision, Atari and finally Sony (three of whom are now all but dead).

Tellingly, when Activision merged with Vivendi in 2007, it put the production of Ghostbusters on indefinite hiatus. Despite huge online interest and a massive preinstalled fanbase, the company decided to ditch the project and let Atari pick up the pieces instead. It’s not exactly a testament to quality is it? Especially when you consider that Atari will publish anything. Ghostbusters: The Videogame might just be the new DRIV3R.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
