Meet Wallace & Gromit. One is an endearing and affable inventor who enthusiastically invents the wrong invention at the right time. The other is a hound who prefers the quiet and cultured life in between bouts of unnecessary rescuing of his hapless master from his own inventions. Join them in a thrilling set of four entire episodes filled with wacky situations, humour, and even crazier inventions that may or may not try to take over peaceful West Wallaby Street.
Can’t have honey without gigantic bees that get a wee bit bothered about Wallace attempting to make a small profit from the fruit of their labours in Fright of the Bumblebees. Join Wallace & Gromit as they try to turn a typical rainy day in Old Blighty into something positive for the residents of West Wallaby Street by bringing the beach to their basement. Not all is peaceful in The Last Resort as our claymation duo must solve a whodunnit with the help from Wallace’s latest and possibly greatest invention, the Deduct-o-matic! After the peculiar hijinx of the first two episodes, one would think our heroes could relax for a spell. Nothing could be further from the truth as they investigate Monty Muzzle, who promises to rebuild a local canine shelter in Muzzled! Wallace moves up in the world and gets admitted to the prestigious country club by the name of Prickly Thicket, the oldest club in Lancashire. Between settling a decades-old feud between two clubs and deciding whether he should use a nine iron, the fun never stops in the final episode The Bogey Man.

TellTale games delivered a winner with this one. If you're familiar with the Wallace and Grommit films and shorts, and like those, odds are very high that you'll find these games just as amusing. The classic charm of claymation is all there, despite everything being digital; Wallace, Grommit, and the supporting cast are just as quirky, and their adventures as wacky, as ever. Theread more puzzles, for the most part, aren't too tough; I got the impression as I played through that these games were meant for Adventure Game beginners and/or kids. Despite that, these games are pretty solid. Each episode offers something a little different, so you'll be in for a pleasantly varied experience even if you play all of them back-to-back.

I have played all of Telltale's games so far, and Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures is by far my favourite Telltale series so far. It has all of the charm of the Aardman shorts, Jared Emerson-Johnson's score fits the mood perfectly (plus Julian Nott's original Wallace & Gromit theme is used in the opening and ending credits of each episode to great effect), and the voices areread more wonderful (including the new voice of Wallace, Ben Whitehead. He's a bit lower pitched here than Peter Sallis, but he has Wallace's vocal inflections down pat). Best of all, the stories are entertaining and the puzzles are fun. The puzzles are the best Telltale has put out so far. There are some really memorable puzzles here, and each one of them fit logically into the world of Wallace & Gromit. All of these attributes together culminate in an experience that really is like being able to play four Wallace & Gromit short films.

I bought this when it first was released and I absolutely adored it. Classic point-n-click without the HUD to make it feel as though you're in a W&G episode. Highly recommended for all adventure and point-n-click fans.
