If you're wondering "Scooby Doo! Where are you?" Look for snacking dog on the Wii! First Frights follows a familiar gameplay design, but how well does the crew fit in with it?

Playing through Scooby Doo! First Frights will feel strangely familiar and it will have nothing to do with ghosts. In terms of gameplay and design, First Frights is very much like LEGO Star Wars, but this is not a bad thing as it was an awesome game.


The Real Scooby Doo

Although the artwork is a bit cutesy, the game is 100% authentic Scooby Doo. The voice acting and story is done by the same people who have worked on the cartoon series, giving the whole game the same feel you sense from Saturday morning cartoons, right down to the silly one liners and laugh track.


Mystery Machine Mayhem

The story in the game covers how the crew first met and got together and takes you through their first few mysteries together. You can play as any [KWLINK 19618]member of the crew[/KWLINK]. Each character has a different ability and power. For example, Scooby can get into small places while Shaggy has a yo-yo grappling hook.


You can use two characters at a time, either tag teaming with the computer, or by playing with a friend in co-op. The controls are simple, you have only two buttons: jump and attack, and the game consists of fighting and platforming with simple puzzles.


Case Closed

The game is a bit on the short side, with the main portion lasting about 6-8 hours. However, there are lots of things to find and unlock, including new costumes gives the gang new abilities, such as the Space Shaggy outfit that allows him to double jump using the jetpack.


With a great drop-in/drop-out co-op system. Scooby Doo! First Frights is a great game for expert parents who can help their kids get past difficult spots in the game. There is nothing too innovative here, but it is a solid game and great for Scooby fans in general.
