What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this game is perfectly suitable for kids 6 and up and even for some alert 5-year-olds. The only potential concern is that older kids (8+) won't find it very interesting, so it's a better purchase for younger kids.

What's it about?

Kids can play SCOOBY DOO MYSTERY MAYHEM as either Shaggy or Scooby. Players can go back and forth between the two. They can explore a movie set, the wild West, a bayou or a creepy laboratory. What starts as a routine ghost hunting caper turns into the usual assortment of frights and twists.

Using the sinister Tome of Doom and other found items, players knock off the creeps, solve the mystery, and find the mastermind of all the mayhem.

Is it any good?

Standard fare for Scooby-Doo cartoon fans, but amusing with nothing objectionable.
