Our favorite kids from Ocean Shores are looking forward to the best summer yet and more importantly to the Annual Ocean Shores Sruf Contest. But as Otto, Reggie, Twister and Sam finally reach the beach they make a startling discovery - most of the sand is missing, and the surf contest has been postponed... indefinitely! Local town officials announce that there is nothing to fret. The head of a mysterious new robotics company, Mr. A.I. Golem, vows to get to the bottom of the missing sand. However something's amiss and the kids aren't buying into Golem Inc.'s generosity. It's now up to our sand sleuths to figure out who's stealing the sand from Ocean Shore's beach! [THQ] Expand

  1. The linear nature of the game is a bit of a drawback, cutting down on replayability, but the game looks good and plays very well.
  2. Some of the directions, which are given to you via an arrow that points gamers in the direction of the next clue, can be too confusing for the younger gamers. Sometimes the arrow points to go right through a wall!

It offers a challenge that any can overcome.. with enough persistence. The controls in this game take a lot of getting used to, and a lot of gameplay objectives feel way longer than they should be.

    This game could have done a lot more with the immersion with a better built and more lively hubworld and animations.
