    It serves up a Solo Mode, three different multiplayer modes and several creative variations of basic dodgeball. [Nov 2002, p.224]
  2. Replay value of Scream Arena is low due to its repetitive, yet enjoyable, gameplay.

    Replicates the movie's charm wonderfully, but its lack of variety hardly qualifies it even as a party game. [Dec 2002, p.130]
  4. Nothing more than an aggressive version of dodge ball, which does contain some initial attraction that unfortunately, quickly, wanes.
  5. Scream Arena takes a line from the movie and creates and entire game from it. It’s so thin that the single line in the movie is more entertaining.
  6. 25
    This is not a game for Disney fans, kids, or anyone. In fact, it's barely a game at all.
  7. A very blatant attempt at making the most money off of a license as possible. The idea of a dodgeball game isn’t terrible, but at the most it should be a mini-game within another game…not a full game itself.

My daughter will love this game when she is old enough to play it. Expand

    This game actually has some quality. It has a fun multiplayer mode, and even a co-op adventure mode. I'm not denying the fact that this This game actually has some quality. It has a fun multiplayer mode, and even a co-op adventure mode. I'm not denying the fact that this game is easy, and this game has no 1 player experience whatsoever, but it does have that joy of pummeling your friends with wacky dodgeballs, and choosing from tons of characters from the memorable movie.

    This game can be mastered... as easy as 1-2-3. Hee hee hee! Yeah... but I think this game is just as simple enough. Hmm... but this one This game can be mastered... as easy as 1-2-3. Hee hee hee!
