"`The Scooby-Doo! 2: Monsters Unleashed' videogames offer Scooby-Doo movie fans compelling gameplay by bringing to life the established characters, voices and storylines depicted in the new film," said Jason Hall, senior vice president, Warner Bros.

"Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" for Game Boy Advance and PC is based on the Warner Bros. Pictures sequel to 2002's "Scooby-Doo: The Movie" and features Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and of course, Scooby-Doo. The storyline of "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" for Game Boy Advance and PC matches the movie plot, with characteristic Scooby humor and varied gameplay. At the Coolsville Criminology Museum's grand opening, the Pterodactyl Ghost escapes with other monster costumes in tow and vows revenge upon the mystery-solving teens. On the Game Boy Advance, players control Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and Daphne throughout five worlds, each with four levels, to meet and defeat creepy monsters and ghosts, capture and unmask the villain. As a reward for completing the game, the players can re-play all of the mini games and fight enemy bosses individually in special battles. The PC version features locations and characters from the movie in 16 levels that can be played in order (Story Mode) or as the player wishes (Arcade Mode).
