Scooby-Doo! First Frights
This would have been fun if it weren't for those meddling kids
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…
