* MythologyGag:
** After you collect the Stay Puft figure, it appears back at headquarters in Ray's bed. This is likely a reference to ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostBusters'', in which [[ManChild Ray]] also slept with a Stay Puft toy.
* NeverTrustATrailer:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNf7gh9Tt2c This trailer]] has scenes of the Ghostbusters dancing down the street and a parade looking up at a float, as well as a scene of several ghost chasing the Ecto-1B down a street, none of which shows up in the game. This was actually a reference to ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' animated series, or possibly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4uxIo4t7xM this]] old music video. Many of those scenes are from the Thanksgiving Day Parade level, which was cut from the game for unknown reasons (but is still referenced by the mayor).

** The opening sequence at the museum includes the line "Wanna hear something really creepy?", which is very similar to Dan Ackroyd's SchmuckBait line ("Wanna see something ''really'' scary?") in ''Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie''.

* LighterAndSofter: The PS2 and Wii versions. While having the same plot, the ghosts are not shown menacing at all, including certain dialogue, such as detail of the Spider Witch's victims was removed.

* TakeThat: Vigo the Carpathian, the painting from the second film, is in the game. As well as comments ranging from BadassBoasts to demands he be brought a child to moping about his defeat he has this gem: "You will elect a leader more evil than I. Twice." [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Oh...]], [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush ouch]].

** The Rookie (In the PS3[=/=]360 version) resembles his voice actor. Of course, the Rookie never actually ''speaks'' & only grunts in battle.

Being the popular franchise that it is, ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' has managed to spawn a few video games in its lifetime. These games have generally been hit or miss, depending on the console and the development.
