OK, having played a few minutes of the PS4 version, I can give a little comparison to the Xbox 360, which is the version I've played most often.
Despite some glitching in the opening cinematic, it plays MUCH smoother and busting feels a little more frenetic for that. The cinematics seemed a little clearer, but nothing to really write home about. As for the game itself, I'm struggling to see any significant difference. You can't read any more of Venkman's office newspaper articles, for example, and I can't say as the much vaunted new hair is leaping out at me.
Where there IS a difference is in the sound. The shockwave really blasts out now, and I *think* there was a little extra spooky music on the skeleton jump cut at the beginning. Interestingly Ray said lines during the Sloth ghost bust that I hadn't heard before! Nothing major narratively, just remarking on my aim and such. Maybe they were always there but the Xbox never threw them up? Who knows. However, as they go to leave in the Ecto a line has definitely been reinstated. In the Xbox 350 version you hear Venkman say, "Try not to destroy too many major Manhattan landmarks" and they drive off. The subtitles on the Xbox version always included the line "...that's our job" at the end of the previous line, but you never heard it. Now it's back in, clear as day!
So they've definitely fiddled with the sound dynamics, which might throw up some surprises. Overall though it is very similar to the old versions. Don't expect Halo Remastered from it - it's just a very polished take on the 2009 game. (And the lip sync is still off! Grr!)
I don't care for the UK tonight...
