Grey Griffin mentioned on Reddit recently that she went to the same church as Heather North.
(The conversation where she mentions it is above).
I wanted to do something special on the site for the 4th weekend, so I decided to do a game review, similar to what I did for Christmas last year. However, this time, I didn't want to pick some video game that everyone's played 100 different times, so I picked a game that no one probably even knows about.
Scooby-Doo! Kickin' It! is probably the least-known Scooby video game of all time, in my opinion due to the difficulty. When I say difficulty, I don't mean that it requires you to solve really intense brain twisters, it's just really terribly coded.
The main point of this game is to help Scooby keep the soccer ball in the air. This sounds like a simple task, but due to the coding it actually turns into a nightmare. The ball will just land randomly, there's no pattern or anything, and sometimes due to the glitches it becomes impossible to know where the ball will land. Each time you are able to kick the ball, you get 10 points. Sadly, I don't think I've ever gotten more than 50 points.
This game sort of reminds me of another Scooby-Doo game, Rippin' Ride. The main goal for this game was to try to balance yourself on the surfboard, each second you stay on the surfboard giving you one point. Sadly, I believe my high score was 8. The game has been taken offline as of May 2015, but I think the reason I'm reminded of this game is because these were the only 2 Scooby games that I epicly failed at.
Anyway, back to Kickin' It!, while googling the game today so I could play it for the review, I happen to stumble upon this trailer/promo posted by KidsWB a while ago.
I think the most amusing thing about this trailer is that the guy doing it can't even keep it in the air more than 3 times!

So, overall I give this game a 2/10. Terrible coding, and way more difficulty than needed, but it's not the worst Scooby game (in my opinion, that spot is reserved for Rippin' Ride). Certainly a good way to spend some time if you're really bored, but not something I would do very often (I think it's been at least 8 years since I've played this one last).
If you've played it, what are your thoughts on this game?
