The sound and the music are pretty good for its time. The music is pretty suitable for the ghost-ridden city of New York that you'll be moving around in, zapping ghosts with different weapons in 6 different stages, each of them big and, at times, a little confusing, unless you pause now and then to take a look at your position on the map.
The main characters are drawn with oversized heads, and do a fairly accurate job of recreating each actor's likeness. Each has specific traits that distinguish them from one another. Ray is tough but slow, and Egon is weaker but faster. Peter, finally, is balanced in speed and stamina and is a good choice for beginners. Enemies are large and decently animated. There are no multi-jointed foes here but there are at least eight mini bosses that are a blast to fight. Everything from a huge caterpillar to the Grim Reaper himself has found its way to the big apple and is looking for a particle-accelerated ass whupping.
