  1. You'd be hard pressed to find better cartoon fodder. [Oct 2005, p.68]
  2. As a game it's fairly average, but the presentation is top notch.
  3. There are a few things that make me wonder how good the game could have been with a little more time devoted to adding more variation and leveraging some of the core concepts better. Either way, it is a solid effort that my kids are having a blast with.
  4. Adam West and the cartoon cast lend their vocal stylings to humorous cut-scenes. [Nov 2005, p.118]
  5. Unmasked surely won't blow anyone away, however THQ and developer A2M have produced a fun and accessible title here that uses its license to near flawless effects, and they deserve a lot of credit.
  6. While the mystery aspect is pretty cool, the platforming is mundane. As this is the bulk of the game, it defines the game.
  7. The game's soundtrack has that typical upbeat music found in so many kid-marketed games. Though it is slightly repetitive and a bit annoying after a while, it does fit the game well.
  8. 69
    Add in the fact that A2M has mostly nailed the style and humor of the cartoon series and we think that most die-hard Scooby fans will be pleased with the end experience, even if it is shallow. Better. But there's still room for improvement.
  9. Certainly the most accomplished version from the Scooby franchise to date. It might be based on familiar platforming territory but it doesn't stop this particular outing from being as fresh and enjoyable as the first episode in 1969. That is of course, if you do not expect that much.
  10. As a game, it's nothing special--just a mediocre platformer stuffed with all of the usual platforming elements. In terms of storytelling and presentation, however, Unmasked grabs the imagination and delights the senses easily as much as a feature-length version of the cartoon show would.
  11. Parents could confidently buy this for their children, safe in the knowledge that the content is suitable as well as enjoyable.
  12. The story lacks depth, the same way the cartoon did, and when you have such a run-of-the-mill platform game you really need an engaging story.
