Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers, while not a four star title, is an enjoyable romp through the cartoon world we've come to know and love. The character crammed into this game make it a charmer, and every fan of the old series owes it to him or herself to check this title out. This game has both good points and bad points, but all in all, is quite the little gem.
Would I ever buy Scooby-Doo for myself? No. Would I rent it? Probably not, but having played it, I found it to be pretty enjoyable, if only for a few scatterbrained hours. It could, however, be the perfect kids game for the N64.
Perhaps if I didn't adore the Scooby-Doo cartoons so much I would have been more forgiving. Yet to see such a cheap effort made, and to see yet another game released that truly gives kids the short end of the stick makes me feel very disappointed. It's not fair to manipulate kids like that or charge for something that could have been so much better.
All Game Guide
While fans of the cartoon will probably find enough interesting things to do in this game, less-than-casual gamers will no doubt be less than amused. If you're looking to savor the complete Scooby flavor, you're probably better off acquiring some VHS tapes of the original show, or perhaps scouring the cable guide to find out when it's playing.
Scooby-Doo: Classic Creep Capers is pretty devoid of intriguing gameplay. You jump into the game looking for mystery and you end up with a scavenger hunt. Most of the enjoyment comes in the thrill of finally unmasking the villain (who you probably already know). I actually like slow-paced games. I was a big fan of titles like Myster Mansion or Myst or King's Quest for the PC, and even though Scooby-Doo here is in the same vein, it's pretty shallow. Again, it's the type of mystery that kids might enjoy. You go out and search for stuff, bring it back to the gang for analysis, and bag yourself the villain at the end. My advice to you readers is to rent if you're remotely interested in this. Otherwise you're going to have a pricey version of "go fetch." If you're a hardcore fan and must have it, well prepare for a mediocre experience.
While the last level is somewhat amusing, the rest of Scooby-Doo!: Classic Creep Capers just doesn’t stack up. Boring gameplay, horrible controls, and a lack of much of the charm that is Scooby-Doo makes for a title that even die-hard Scooby fans should consider passing on. Rent it, perhaps, and see if Classic Creep Capers is your cup of tea -- chances are great, however, that it’s not.
