  • Summary: In this action adventure platform game, players assume the role of Scooby-Doo as he and the teenage sleuths of Mystery Inc. visit Fred's cousin Jed, a monster movie set designer. They find Jed has disappeared and his animatronics are out of control, sending mechanical monsters haywire and making Jed the prime suspect. Players must stop the creepy costumed characters, unmask the truth and prove Jed's innocence. Scooby is able to don Kung Fu, bat and archer costumes so that he can karate chop, glide and aim plungers at monsters. The game consists of three sprawling worlds that each feature multiple levels and mini games with numerous cut scenes and climactic boss battles. Players recognize will the voice of the original Batman television series' Adam West as Winslow Stanton, the game's main villain, as well as authentic Scooby-Doo! cartoon voice actors. In addition, effects from the original cartoon, such as canned laughter and classic catch phrases, have been incorporated into the game. Collapse

  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. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
