If you liked the film, you'll like the game. If you loved the film...well, you get the idea.

Overall this was a nice game that doesn't require any thinking or quest solving but does require some fast moving fingers.

Schreckens-Insel ist eine typische Disney-Filmumsetzung mit gutem Leveldesign. Aber wann kapieren die Entwickler endlich, dass auf dem PC andere Grafikmaßstäbe gelten als für Uralt-Konsolen? Kantige Polygon-Landschaften mit Simpel- Texturen lassen Erinnerungen an frühe 3Dfx-Tage wach werden. Dafür glänzt der Sound: Die Original-Stimmen sorgen für massig Ambiente. Wer den Humor des Films mag, wird gut unterhalten.
Comparándolo con... Toy Story 2: Ambientación muy buena, reproduciendo fielmente el trabajo de los de Pixar en la película del mismo nombre. Sencillez de movimiento y reducido número de teclas y/o movimientos a recordar. En sí el juego resulta más entretenido que el de Monstruos, el cual acaba resultando algo repetitivo.

Following the actual plotlines of the movie would have enhanced the game, such as giving you the opportunity to stop Randall's evil scheme, but the simple design is built around letting Mike and Sulley practice to be Top Scarers. Scare Island is not too challenging, and there's no violence other than the breaking of toys, but gameplay is fun and allows fans of the characters to extend their enjoyment just a bit more.

Während der Kinofilm auch Erwachsene zum Kreischen bringt, wendet sich Schreckens-Insel ausdrücklich an Sechs- bis Zehnjährige. Aber selbst den Jüngsten dürfte die mangelnde Abwechslung bald unangenehm auffallen, schließlich geht es letztendlich nur darum, auf die immer gleiche Weise insgesamt 128 Nervis zu erschrecken.
