My Take on the GameThis game is great for the scooby-doo fan as it brings together the whole gang to solve another great mystery. There is a lot of text in this game so either the child needs to be able to read on their own, or have a parent around to get the most out of the game. When my kids and I tried this game we played together so I helped them with the reading. The plot is a bit complex and for younger kids it does take a bit to get used to the controls for the game, but once you do it is fun and engaging! I liked all of the tasks that you can complete (such as using a catapult for snowballs or watermellons), making food and washing laundry.

I loved the fact that the characters got to collect scooby snacks as well as collecting medallions, costume parts, and beating up a certain number of bad guys.

I have gotten through a few of the levels and they have been fun thus far. I have read that there are three episodes and know that I will get there soon. I wish there was a way to have more episodes so that the game could continue in the future, but alas, it is not possible and I will have to simply wait for the next game to come out!

Overall, I am pleased with the game, its' story, and the characters.The game is fun and lasts quite some time, and I believe that your family will love it as well!
