We got this for my 5 yr old who loves Scooby! We own "First Frights", so he was familiar with how "Spooky Swamp" would be. He loved this game. It was easy enough for him to play without getting too frustrated. There were lots of things to do. He actually completed the entire game, but could go back to get more items if he wished. We, as parents loved that it talked to the person/child playing it, instead of us having to read it, like other games. This is a diffinete purchase in the future!

This is the second Scooby Doo game for Wii that I have gotten my 5 year old grandson. He absolutely loves First Fright (FF) and will play for hours if he were allowed. Spooky Swamp is a little more in your head than FF, with puzzles to solve and things you have to figure out to make them work. There is more reading than in FF, so he has a little more trouble playing by himself. But I have to say I really love these games. I actually find them fun to play, even when alone, (I play ahead so can help him through the next level of the game.) We have such a good time playing together. Sometimes we just run around smashing things to hear them crunch. And make foot prints in the snow just because they look so cool. I highly recommend this game for younger kids. Even ones who aren't really ready to watch Scooby Doo cartoons. My grandson finds most of the cartoons a little too scary to watch but he doesn't seem to be bothered by the different monsters in the games. Even though in this game they are Skeleton Zombies, Body-builder devils on fire, Twirling Snow men, and big wolves standing on two feet and many others, he just like to shoot them with Shaggy's sling shot or throw Velma's books at them. His older sister (9 years old) introduced him to FF. but she gets bored by it and would rather play Zelda or Harry Potter. Bottom line, its a great game for kids and parents or grandparents to play together.
