Scooby-Doo! First Frights review

Mediocre
AT A GLANCE
  • Can swap out characters
  • It's the whole Scooby gang!
  • Good for stoners
  • Frustrato-combat
  • Herky-jerky enemies
  • Camera makes drunken swoops

The Scooby-Doo cartoon was rubbish really, wasn’t it? Yeah, yeah, it’s a ‘classic’ – whatever. It wasn’t particularly scary or funny, and if we wanted to watch a stoned bloke talk to a weird dog, we’d hang out at the local park more often. Its continued popularity is therefore a mystery to us, particularly when Scoobs and the gang turn up in limp games like this.

Investigating a series of unrelated mysteries, you control various members of the crime-solving troop, swapping between them if you like, but it doesn’t make much difference. Whoever you play as, you’ll be smashing objects to get items, engaging in frustrato-combat with herky-jerky enemies and struggling to deal with the camera’s drunken swoops. It’s just not much fun, which is a bit of an oversight for a game…

    Imagine my confusion when I was going to read the Modern Warfare 2 review and accedentally clicked on this. Read the whole review until I figured it out. (Screenshot didn't load)
