  1. Fans of the cartoons will be happy to know that the game contains everything from the originals, including voices and bad jokes.
  2. One of the greater traits of this game is the sound which replicates perfectly the wacky over the top 70’s effects.
  3. Mystery Mayhem does a fine job of capturing the feeling and atmosphere of the beloved TV series, but the overly simplistic gameplay is where the game falls short.
  4. Even the youth market, at which it's aimed, should be able to clear enough of it to sate their Scooby urges in an overnight period, leaving parental wallets free for better gaming purchases.
  5. Parents whose kids have Scooby-Doo hot on the brain from the movie can safely rent this one, or not, without worry of missing much.
  6. This is definitely a game for hard-core Scooby fans. Or children under the age of ten. Or children under the age of ten with a short attention span. Or, ideally, all of the above.
  7. But unless your mommy tucks you into your Scooby-Doo bed sheets at night, you probably won’t be entirely satisfied.

    It's me again, the person who rated Daredevil. Maybe you haven't reviewed that one yet. I hope you don't hate me. This is an interesting conversation isn't it? I feel like I'm really getting to know you now. Do you like Spongebob Squarepants? I do. He rules. Expand

    This game is entertainment for the entire family. The clue and mysteries are fun to solve. My 5 children all love this game.
