Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Crew are back. This time, they investigate the mysteries surround a spooky swamp! Let's see if this game will make a big splash or flop.

Scooby-Doo and the Familiar Crew

You start off the game playing as either Shaggy or Scooby-Doo, but eventually you'll be able to play as any member of the Mystery Crew any where, switching characters on the fly with a simple push of the button. A friend can drop-in or drop-out of the game at any time just by picking up the other controller and you can work together to solve puzzles and defeat foes.


The game plays a lot like the LEGO series games with simple action, platforming, and puzzle solving. Each character has special abilities and moves and you will need to switch between them in order to progress through the game. There are also mysteries that you will need to investigate by gathering clues and deciphering secret messages.


Spooky Swamp? More like Snore Swamp

The story revolves around a mysterious girl in the swamp who is making a strange brew in her cauldron. The adventure will take you to the Spooky Swamp, an Alpine Village, and a Southwestern Ghost Town.


Like the game play, the story is simple. The game is truly intended for the younger audience, who are more likely to find the swamp and monsters to be spooky. All the characters are done in a younger, cartoony form and the graphics are fine, if not a bit bland.


Unless you are a big time Scooby-Doo fan, you will find this game lacking in substance. The laugh track is a bit annoying and the jokes are typical Scooby-Doo. To keep things interesting, there are unlockable clothing that you can get by collecting Scooby Snacks in the levels. Overall, there are no major issues with the game but also nothing outstanding. It is an average game at best and is only recommended for true Scooby-Doo fans who would appreciate it.

Yeah the gameplay can get kinds stale. For the first two nights just keep the door closed all night and the power will go out 2 seconds before 6 am. I don't really have a strategy for the 3-7 nights.

The gameplay does tend to get a little stale after a while. The camera itself is virtually useless unless you just want to see the layout of the restaurant. The only time it's helpful is when you watch foxy. If you don't check him regularly, he'll come at you. If you manage to close your door in time he'll bang on it, draining more and more power each time. Other than that, the camera is basically useless...
