In the end the game doesn’t do anything particularly new or impressive, but it definitely merits a look if you’re keen on the cartoons.
Whether gamers purchase or rent this title boils down to their love of the Doo. Die-hard fans of the show will purchase to relive their favorite characters in this adventure time and time again, but for everyone else, this equates to a perfect rental. A platforming experience (which doesn’t pop up very often on the Xbox), that puts to use the Scooby Doo license in a fun and engaging title. Challenging enough for younger gamers, and entertaining enough for the old timers, Scooby Doo! Unmasked has a little something for everyone. Certainly not the best title in its genre, but a solid attempt.
Scooby-Doo! Unmasked will definitely please younger fans of the cartoon. Older players will be able to get through the game in an hour or two, hardly worth the money for the game. Younger players should take considerably longer and will probably enjoying the presentation.
Scooby-Doo! Unmasked is the best videogame adaptation of the famous cartoon series yet, but it's far from perfect. The title doesn't bring much new to the table. Its fundamentally basic platforming mechanics have all been done before -- and better, and its occasional mechanical oversights may prove troublesome for its target audience. That noted, simplistic or not, moving Scooby about the environments and platforming is still fun enough and the title's unique costume element definitely breaks up the monotony. Add in the fact that A2M has mostly nailed the style and humor of the cartoon series and we think that most die-hard Scooby fans will be pleased with the end experience, even if it is shallow.
Le chien le plus peureux du monde audiovisuel continue d'amuser la galerie derrière le petit écran, mais sa prestation sur consoles a toujours du mal à convaincre. Ce nouvel épisode ne souffre pas de défauts majeurs, mais il aura du mal à se faire une place dans une catégorie dominée par des titres autrement plus impressionnants. Un jeu qui se destine donc surtout aux jeunes fans de Scooby-Doo qui ne prennent la manette que de façon occasionnelle.
Falling short in a number of things that could have very well made this one a really great platform game, Scooby-Doo! Unmasked is still the best Scooby game released thus far. It’s storytelling and style are straight from the cartoon and that’s a good thing but the platform elements have been done so much better than this. Here’s hoping the next one will be the one fans of everyone’s favorite pooch have been waiting for.
So what have we deciphered with all the clues we found? Scooby Doo: Unmasked is a wonderful cartoon posing as a so-so platformer. Longtime fans of the series will have a good time regardless of all its shortcomings, for that alone will get you through; for the more hardcore player out there, though, it's best to leave this mystery unsolved and say farewell to this equivalent of a midnight snack. The folks at THQ would have had a surefire hit on their hands if it wasn't for us meddling reviewers.
Scooby-Doo Unmasked! Is the perfect title to rent if you are a younger gamer. You can get through it on a weekend, and have a pretty satisfying and rewarding time playing it. Despite the cheaper price of the game at retail though, I wouldn’t recommend buying this unless you are a collector, or if you as a younger gamer, or you as a parent really want the game.
All told, Scooby-Doo! Unmasked isn't much of a game, but it is a decent way to interact with a feature-length Scooby-Doo story.
Despite being lacklustre, Scooby-Doo! Unmasked does have redeeming features that make it playable. Parents could confidently buy this for their children, safe in the knowledge that the content is suitable as well as enjoyable. If that's what the developers set out to achieve, then they can be proud of the job they have done. However, the most successful games sell across the board and no doubt that THQ and A2M where aiming for that also and they would of got away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling kids!
I hate to conclude on such a sour note, but I just don't see how this game will have anything to offer any particular audience. Neither game in horrible in any one aspect, but they're just not games you should feel compelled to own or even rent. If you do happen to be a major fan then you'll want it because it has the name, but not because that's about it.
