Thankfully Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed is an enjoyable and stylish game worthy of the cartoon legacy and a decent tie-in to the latest movie. It's a must for Scooby Doo fans and one of the best games around for younger children. Your kids will love you for buying this! It's good fun and a harmless game, even with the inclusion of monsters, capturing the spirit of Scooby as effectively as Mystery Inc. capture villains.
Nicht zu fassen, was einem auf dem GBA immer wieder für einfallsloser 08/15-Kram vorgesetzt wird. Scooby Doo 2 ist ein 2D-Jump‘n‘Run aus der Konserve und hat nichts, aber auch gar nichts Eigenständiges. Neues, Einfallsreiches oder sonst wie Interessantes vorzuweisen, Das Gameplay hat heute frei, das Leveldesign ist irgendwo unterwegs vom Laster gefallen und die Motivation liegt noch im Bett und pennt. Die schwammige Steuerung paart sich mit einem lächerlichen Schwierigkeitsgrad, hinzu kommen die üblichen Levelpasswörter (willkommen in der Steinzeit) und eine Handvoll Minispiele. Bei manchen Spielen möchte man den Hersteller fragen:“Leute, ist das euer Ernst?“

Unfortunately even with its various gimmicks, Monsters Unleashed is yet another in a long line of disappointing movie tie-in platformers and even if you've only been gaming for a short time you've most likely already encountered a handful of similar titles. It's by no means a terrible game and the visuals and audio are quite pleasing but the absence of any engaging or imaginative gameplay really hurts the overall package. Finally whilst the score of 3.9 is far from good, Monsters Unleashed has only reached this level because of the enjoyable mini-games, which can be re-visited at any time after you've unlocked them. I was tempted to give it a 1 because of the addition of a terrible password system but this seems to be a factor of this type of title that we're all going to have to learn to live with. Even so this game is likely to sell huge numbers on the back of the movie with THQ shifting an amazing 4 Million plus units of the franchise since signing on the dotted line.

I used to like good ole’ Scooby, then I played his game. I am constantly amazed at how good children’s television programming can be bastardized by half-hearted, sloppy developers. Do they think that kids don’t know crappy software when they play it? Do they think that they will want this game just because it has Scooby’s ugly dog mug plastered on the front? Does Steven Segal run like a girl? Unfortunately, I believe that answer to all of those questions is yes. As long as consumers continue to buy licensed garbage, developers will continue to make it. I really tried to make this game fun, it just isn’t any fun at all. The only thing scary about Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed is that is actually was published. Stay far away.

Soporifique, anecdotique et neurasthénique, ceci correspondant à l’action du titre, à l’intérêt du soft et à votre état après avoir bouclé le jeu en quatre ou cinq heures… Limité techniquement et sans grand intérêt pour qui aime les jeux de plates-formes, Scooby Doo 2 : Les Monstres Se Déchaînent est uniquement destiné aux plus jeunes d’entre vous qui ne connaissent que les films ou la nouvelle série animée. Mais ayez bien en tête qu’en partant de cette logique, les développeurs ont bâclé leur titre et ce à tout niveau !

Do you like the zany, crazy fun of Scooby Doo and his hilariously stupid friends? Do you like the animation style, its wacky music, or the fearful stories they tell? Maybe you enjoyed the movie – after all, Sarah Michelle Gellar is pretty hot. And if you can't be entertained by the film itself, you might as well get lost in the atmosphere.
