Excerpt: When you were a kid there was nothing better then to sit down and watch your favorite cartoon. And for most of us that play the Playstation 2 there was one cartoon that was probably one of your favorite cartoons. He is the real star of the show although the rest of the "gang" would beg to differ. But if you had your choice of Shaggy, Daphne, Velma, Fred or the star of this week's review I am sure the choice would be pretty simple.
Excerpt: "Scooby-Doo! Where are you?!" Anyone familiar with this '60s-'70s cartoon based on that ever-starving, easily startled canine sleuth should be instantly reminded of the wonderful cartoon, Scooby-Doo. Scooby, his "best buddy in the whole wide world" Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne make up the mystery-solving bunch known as Mystery Inc.
Excerpt: Although Night of 100 Frights was released to nearly coincide with the Scooby-Doo motion picture, you can be assured that they are related only by name. The storyline, voices, and overall style are completely different. Not being plagued by the restrictions and horrible reputation of the dreaded movie-to-game syndrome, Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights was free to borrow heavily from the classic cartoon and recreate the same off-the-wall humor of the series.
Excerpt: Nostalgia can be a dangerous thing. It has the power to cripple the critical mind, bathing it in the rainbow-colored reminiscences of a bygone era. Who hasn't remembered a certain movie from their childhood with a fondness that far outweighs the film's actual merit? For me, that movie was Krull , the tale of a brave fantasy warrior battling laser-shooting cyborg slugmen with a giant throwing star called "The Glaive." It's not a very good movie.
