    Parents could confidently buy this for their children, safe in the knowledge that the content is suitable as well as enjoyable.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. While the mystery aspect is pretty cool, the platforming is mundane. As this is the bulk of the game, it defines the game.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    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. As a game it's fairly average, but the presentation is top notch.

    Adam West and the cartoon cast lend their vocal stylings to humorous cut-scenes. [Nov 2005, p.118]
  11. 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.

    You'd be hard pressed to find better cartoon fodder. [Oct 2005, p.68]

The story is bad, but the gameplay is soo good, all the levels are fun to play(except some bosses), the songs, the cartoonish style(very good graphics and it doesn't get old), everything except the story is soo good, and it is a MUST HAVE for scooby fans. The Gamecube port is not as colorful as the PS2 port, but the graphics are a bit better. Full Review »
