This game is not for hardcore gamers and while it appears to be a relatively fun game for kids, the controls and puzzle solving may be a bit too complicated for that crowd. So what you're left with is a fun game to play with your kids that will probably grow old far before they can adequately play it on their own.
That's unfortunate, because this game has a lot of the elements that could have made it a great family or children's game. The graphics are spot on, including hilarious reproductions of some of Scooby and Shaggy's typical behavior and the sound, although it uses none of the original cast, is also pretty much a perfect reproduction.
In this game you control Scooby and Shaggy as an inseparable duo, you can hit a button to switch between which one you are actively controlling and which one is following your lead. Another button goes into a funny little stealth mode that puts both characters up on their toes in an exaggerated tip-toe. The beginning of the game has you trying to avoid ghosts while you look for clues. The more run-ins with ghosts you have the more your cool meter drops, if it drops all the way, you go into automatic run away mode with Shaggy screaming and cradling Scooby in his arms as he runs from the place. Later in the game you earn a Tomb of Doom which allows you to capture the collection of ghosts, ghouls and baddies you run into ala Ghostbusters.
Unfortunately the game play is just a little too simplistic for adults and probably most teens and a bit too hard for younger children.
If you are a huge fan of Scoob, then maybe this game is for you.
