I was all set to pick up "Ghostbusters", since all of the initial previews hinted that the motion control could make it the superior version of the three consoles ... but now I'm hearing kind of "meh" reviews.

Anyone here tried it out yet?
I'm loving it so far, but the only downer is that you have to keep the remote pointed at the screen at all times. The slightest deviation throws your aiming off. Gets to be a strain on the wrist. And you play an incredibly generic male (or female) character that joins the team, has no lines or name whatsoever, always being referred to as "Rookie", "Junior", "Kid", etc. Gameplay becomes repetitive, but hey, you get to be a Ghostbuster!
Characters look almost nothing like their movie counterparts (especially Ray), but just enough so that you know it's them. And for someone who originally wanted nothing to do with the project, Bill Murray actually sounded like Peter Venkman, as opposed to Bill Murray reading lines off a sheet. He seemed motivated! I'm looking forward to the movie.
on the shelves 07/08: Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution (metacritic) - this sounds a lot like SimCity on SNES: a console world builder game with some of the more advanced features removed (custom maps)
