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. Expand

  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. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. This game should appeal to any Scooby-Doo fan, as well as anyone looking for a low-rent, low-impact platforming workout. [Nov 2005, p.131]
  6. A bogstandard platformer that'll strike a chord with younger gamers, though not a lot of others. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  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.

    This was the third video game my 6 yr old son completed. He loved it. It quickly made him forget about Lego Star Wars 1 & 2 games. The game This was the third video game my 6 yr old son completed. He loved it. It quickly made him forget about Lego Star Wars 1 & 2 games. The game is fun for son and Dad. Only one player at a time. Unforgiving in that failure takes you back a long way. True to Scooby-Doo voices and themes. Safe for kids. Scooby-doing kung-fu is hilarious. Expand
