Not every game works or needs to have a co-op campaign, those wishing to bring a buddy along for Ghostbusting can use the multiplayer part of the game.
To be fair Ghostbusters absolutely should. I love the PS3 version I really do but co-op made me love Wii more.

Look at the franchise. It is always about a group of friends coming together to become Ghostbusters. Love it or hate I'm not starting that debate but even Answer the call had a group of friends.

Friendship and working together is always a core part. My only complaint of the PS3 one was lack of co-op. It's like when I see teenage mutant ninja turtles games where it's 1 player I'm like "no! Should be 4" but a game like God of war or Spider-Man doesn't need it. But Ghostbusters ? Absolutely should be co-op.

Note I'm not saying they'll patch this to be it or they will update it. But I'm saying a Ghostbusters without co-op is missing a key fundamental part of the franchise

Rewatching playthroughs of GBTVG on YouTube... they really need to fix some of the animation. It's shocking. But the atmosphere still drips from every second, mainly because of the voicework. It's like having another four film's worth of dialogue in one.

I don't see it with the dialogue. It works fine with characters still referring to 'Rookie' singular.
Yeah, because only acknowledging one person when there are two isn't awkward at all. Telling that one rookie to do this by yourself when there is another one with you. I'm not saying it'll be a huge deal, but is noticeable when instances come up. Again, this happened with the Wii/PS2 version. The dialog is clearly written to be directed at one person, not two.

Also again, the game play will have to tweaked to accommodate a second player. The creators even explained why they wanted to keep it single player.

Actually, it was reported elsewhere on this forum that they are considering adding local co-op to the campaign mode.
I looked through this thread, and there is no mention of the developer wanting to add that. No other sites report it either.
Maybe not on this thread but I definitely remember somebody mentioning it somewhere on the forum.

Actually, I'm a firm believer that every game should because as somebody who has a very strong relationship with his brother I find it pretty annoying when I can't play games with him.

Ok, but a strong relationship with your brothers means nothing in this scenario. I have a strong relationship with friends, but that doesn't mean I wish all games to be two player. Just because you believe all games should be two player, doesn't mean it should be that way. There are a lot of games that are designed to be single player. Trying to add another player means they'll have to rethink things to accommodate a second player, potentially effecting the game. A lot of first person shooters are meant to be single player.

Grandtheft Auto? How are you gonna make the story a two player co-op game?

Final Fantasy or any RPG game? And I'm not talking about multiplayer online games, any RPG where the story is focused on one characters journey.

What about Resident Evil? It's a solo survival story. Granted there is a usually another character in that game, but they venture off on their own and meet with your character during certain events, so adding them a second player option won't work. Also, ammo in the game is scarce, does that mean they have to add more so the second player can get more? Way too many variables here.

Not everything can be two player. It doesn't matter if you believe it should, some games were just not designed to be that way.

To be fair as I said Ghostbusters as a franchise is about the group , I.e friendships. People go to cons in groups , all the movies were group , extreme and real were groups , comics were groups

It lends its self to co-op so much like tmnt , there are games with no co-op but why? That's not what people want.

As for resident evil multiple games have had co-op lol I agree RE doesn't need it. But Ghostbusters does.

Like looking at old properties I'd say He-man doesn't , Star wars doesn't , Spider-man doesn't , batman doesn't. Ghostbusters does , tmnt does , power rangers does , avengers does.


I love the Ghostbusters realistic version game but with out co-op a big part of the heart of the series was gone imo it's why Wii is my favourite despite being a technically Wesker version.
