It seems the Playstation is prone to medocire games... And this is one of them.,
This review is from: Scooby Doo and the Cyber Chase (Video Game)
I remember bouncing off the walls with enthusiasm to play when I got this game when back in the early millenium when i was a little kid, and it remain stuck in my memory as it was my first trip to my local BlockBuster. (Which sadly has now shut. Memories *sniff sniff* ) You can imagine how happy I was when I realised that my ex-girlfriend had a copy she could let me borrow.
So I played it again. And felt a little saddened that this... was medoicre at best.
One of the main problems I have with this game is that it is waaaay too easy to do, and it seems to follow a set pattern of defeat bad guys, defeat boss, next stage. Which it is extremely linear and boring.
The controls were crippled in awkward places, it often took several attempts to do a certain section of a leavel to get it right... losing lives... adding frustration.
The camera does not rotate to give you a better perspective of the games, which is incredibly annoying as, like above, it takes several attempts to jump platforms. And your accuracy has to be dead on, otherwise, your pretty much dead.
The aiming controls are crippled to say the least and extremely awkwardly laid out.
The on screen help given is just really annoying, its more like "YES! YOUVE TOLD ME FOR THE 10TH TIME! CAN I PLAY THE DAMN GAME NOW!?", so, I just ignore it and work it out.
On the plus side, the cutscenes voiceovers are extremely good, which had I not known better probably would have been ported from the actual movie itself. Excellent job.
Overall? A bit bland in places, but THQ certainly did a good job of turning this movie into a game.
