Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed debuted last month and there's now a new Collector's Edition so let's open it up and see what's inside.

Before getting to the physical goodies, let me say that I love Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed as it's a unique online multiplayer experience that lends itself perfectly to its namesake franchise. However, you can read all about that in my review. One nifty aspect of this Collector's Edition is that it includes some in-game items; namely, the Basher ghost, a rare Ectoplast skin, the remote trap vehicle kit, and a special P.K.E. meter. These are unlocked after redeeming a code that's in the game case for the Advance Access Incentive DLC pack. 😊 v1d30chumz 44-210-77-106Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Review
After unwrapping Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Collector's Edition and removing the slipcase which itself looks nice, you'll reveal the Tobin's Spirit Guide book replica which is actually a box that opens to reveal more goodies. Considering it's such a big box, I was expecting it to have a lot packed in but what's inside is neat nonetheless. Of course, you get a copy of the game complete with disc and you also get a simple poster that unfolds from ⅛ of the folded size as well as a sticker sheet with 5 stickers on it. Specifically, there are 2 Ghostbusters logos, a couple of yellow and black striped caution strips, and the Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed logo. Oh, and there's a clear plastic stand that you can display the game case on which I guess you can use with any physical game now that I think about it. 🏆
Even though there's not a lot packed into the box, it's still an impressive Collector's Edition, especially if you want to display Tobin's Spirit Guide on your shelf which some folks might think is an actual book due to its lovely embossed fonts, images, and textures on its cover. Speaking of which, it's all high quality stuff so I'd say it would make a wonderful present for any Ghostbusters fan who also enjoys video games. Wait a second; after typing that out, I realise that's probably one completely overlapping Venn diagram. 😅
