So it was with great excitement that we purchased Scooby Doo and the Spooky Swamp for Wii. I must say that I am not as overwhelmingly excited about the sequel as I was with the original. The main reason is that the game developers chose to change some of the fundamental game play structure for this sequel. Some may like these changes, others may not.
Chief among them is the fact that the game play is entirely objective driven this time around. You must complete an objective (or task) to proceed forward in the game. To that end, READING SKILLS ARE A MUST. The objectives are sometimes obvious, but other times the objective must be read (or re-read) from the objectives log to be certain that you understand the task that you need to perform. So even if your child can pick up the very easy game play mechanics on their own, a lack of reading skills will leave them constantly asking "What do I do next?" Where the original game allowed a non-reader to play on their own and still advance through the game without a problem, this new game requires someone to sit with a non-reader to guide them through the objectives.
The objective-driven game play does allow for the story telling and story progression to be enhanced well above and beyond the original game's high standards. This is a definite plus!
Voice acting is solid, as was the case with the previous game. Although, Shaggy's voice acting is decidedly a notch or two below the previous game.Read more ›
I really like that there are more things to do: collect medallions, collect costume parts, beat up a certain number of bad guys. You can see your statistics by pressing plus (+), and a variety of objectives. You can recall objectives or sometimes get clearer instructions about objectives by pressing minus (-).
I think it would have been nicer to have one more level (Episode). The First Frights (first Scooby game) had four, but this new one only has three. I think it would be better if we were able to get full coordinated costumes that actually allowed you to perform different actions. Like Scooby Ninja from the first game or playing one of the bad guys from the first game. That stuff is fun and I don't see any way to do that in the second one.
Overall, I am pleased with the purchase and glad that I was able to play it with my daughter.Read more ›
This game has a better means of monitoring what you've collected and a lot more things to collect, rewards for collection such as costume pieces, and relatively free switching between characters except when you really need to use Shaggy and Scooby only. It also does not allow both players to be the same character which I like because my 4-year-old thought it was funny to use the same one I did in the older game and it made it very hard to play.
It is, obviously, pretty easy to play, even with the nunchuck (though ours must be old, since the machine frequently tells us to plug ours back in. I can only assume they're shorting out). You don't get different powers anymore with costume changes, which was a little disappointing since Ninja Scooby was my favorite in the previous game. The panda hat and bunny slippers make up for a lot.
The story is a bit weak, but still reasonably cute, and how strong were the stories in the original animated cartoons anyway? Tar monsters? Thawed cavemen? An over-sized Dia de los Muertes monster isn't too odd by that standard... in fact, he's flippin' awesome.
I didn't find that reading was such a great obstacle. Of course, I played it with my daughter when we first got it since we bought it to pass the time while we shared a nice head cold. But if you're paying attention, they tell you aloud what you need to do most of the time, and if she gets stuck, assuming she cares what her objective is, there's the minus button that brings up a reminder that I can read to her.
This game, unlike the first, does not force you to keep moving forward, which suits my kid just fine, since there are many items that you can interact with...Read more ›
