Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt
is a unique game. It's clearly accessible to the youngest of players, but I find it interesting that it is one of the few games that is rated by the ESRB as Everyone, that actually could be fun for everyone
. Usually a game marked 'Everyone’ should be read 'Little Kids ONLY,' but I found myself enjoying this game immensely. I played this game with my brother, even though we are both above the age that we would want to let anyone KNOW we had played the Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt
game. We played all the way through each of the three games on the cartridge, and were about to play some more, when he had to go to a baseball game. It was actually pretty fun... and VERY entertaining.
The basis of the Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt game is that the babies are going to play board games... each one of the three games inside is a different board game. If that was the end of it, and if the board games were handled in the normal way, the game might possibly be a boring game, not just a board game. HOWEVER, the Rugrats get all involved in the board games in the same way they get involved in their adventures in the cartoons. In Reptar Rally, the babies look like (adorably cute) mutant dinosaur versions of themselves, and have to collect as many sweets as possible to win. In the Pirate Treasure Hunt, the babies don deep-sea diving suits and search for hidden treasure in a sunken ship (in their fish's aquarium, no less). And in Angelica's Temple of Gloom, the babies have to find all of the pieces of a broken Aztec statue before Angelica does, or else...
