A Different Concept for Scooby
on 29 March 2004
As I thorougly enjoyed Scooby Doo - Night of a 100 Frights, I had high expectations for this game. I was a little disappointed when I started playing as Mystery Mayhem as it was not a platform game as I had expected, rather it was more of an adventure game where your control of the characters is limited. This time you played as both Scooby and Shaggy and basically lead them round various areas figuring out how to complete tasks.
As with most games Scooby Doo! Mystery Mayhem has its good and bad points.
Plenty of video clips
Some challenging puzzles
The ability to unlock 5 mini games
Limited control of characters
Repetitive aspects of some challenges (i.e. Mine cart ride that seems to last so long it becomes a little boring)
Length of the game, I think the game could of been longer and slightly more challenging at the end
The game lacks the ability to re-visit previous areas to collect items you may have missed
Overall, this is a OK game. I had fun playing it while it lasted but would say that Scooby Doo - Night of a 100 Frights is far superior.
If you are a Scooby fan, I would recommend buying this game as you will enjoy it as long as your expectations are not too high. It is definately worth a play but don't expect a similar game to the Night of a 100 Frights.
