It comes NOWHERE close to the original, but having the four of them (or three...f***ing Winston getting shafted AGAIN!) bounce off one another will never get tired. So yeah, it's still a credible sequel.
This movie has two legit scary moments for me, both with Janosz, first when his eyes light up outside Dana's apartment, and of course when he appears as a ghost nanny. I also love the Titanic scene, and Vigo was an excellent villain. There's also the tunnel scene I mentioned and that awesome visual of the Statue of Liberty up to her nose in water.

Winston didn't get shafted. His scene in the tunnel is probably one of the most memorable parts of the film.
Ernie Hudson is very bittersweet about Ghostbusters. 75% of Winston's role in the first movie was cut literally the day before shooting started (Winston was present from page 8 of the original script, and from page 68 in the final script). In the second movie, he felt like he was just there because he was in the first movie, not because he had any type of role to play.
I do some of the conventions, and I’ve met thousands of people, and I deputize kids as Little Ghostbusters. And the question I always used to get was, “Where does Winston go?” That’s the thing with Winston: He will pop up and then disappear.
They used to like to say that Danny’s the heart of the Ghostbusters, Harold was the brain, Bill was the mouth, and Ernie was the soul. When I heard that quote, I was blown away. And then I saw them on the Tonight Show and there was no mention of the Soul. So Winston could always disappear.
