Wallace & Gromit Episode 1: Fright of the Bumblebees


Framerate problems aside, this is a great first entry for the Claymation duo.

The single episode told here is split up into 4 sections, and they're all fairly short and not particularly difficult, but I did get stuck towards the end of the second part (stupid dog tags), so there are a few puzzles that'll make you think a bit, or...

Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures: Fright of the Bumblebees


Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures: Fright of the Bumblebees is one of those games I knew I was going to love even before I started playing. It combines my love of animator Nick Park with my admiration of how Telltale Games can turn just about...

Fans of Wallace & Gromit have no excuse not to pick up this wonderful adventure game from Telltale Games. Fright of the Bumblebees is full of memorable characters, challenging puzzles and enough good-natured jokes to keep you busy until episode two...

Wallace & Gromit Episode 1 Fright of the Bumblebees


Imagine a cooking show that showed you what to do, and then could see you doing it. The game could offer helpful advice on how to stir, or slice. Think about a sermon where you interact with the pastor while learning about the Holy Bible. Nike+ Kinect...

Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures Episode 1: Fright of the Bumblebees Xbox 360 Review


There's few reasons to be proud to be British (the weather, the government and the chavs see to that), but Aardman's Wallace & Gromit is one of them. Since debuting in 1989, the plasticine duo of Yorkshireman (Wallace) and dog (Gromit) have become...

The first episode of Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures is a very entertaining one, capturing the very essence that has made the duo into the popular icons that they have become. The puzzles may be generally free of difficulty, though this will suit...

Wallace & Gromit: Fright of the Bumblebees


The long running and beloved British clay-mation series Wallace and Gromit has arrived with its first episode in a four part series called Wallace and Gromit's Grand Adventure. TellTale Games, the same guys who brought you the wildly successful Sam and...

Presentation captures the essence of the source material ; Voiceovers and animations are solid ; Extremely easy to play ; Controls are solid, especially the LB/RB selection system

A few framerate slowdowns ; Character movement and camera angles ; Hardcore gamers may want to look elsewhere ; Replay value is absent thanks to a 2-3 hour lifespan

Being a straight port of the PC version, Fright of the Bumble Bees lets you control both Wallace and Gromit as you would with any point and click adventure only this time you control them with your Xbox 360 controller. Character movement feels a bit...

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: Fright of the Bumble Bees Review


Andrew Bryant loads up with Wasp-eeze and heads to West Wallaby Street for the first time this year... Game Title: Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures:

I thought the animation was spot on, I thought the setting stayed true to the W&G universe, but I was really disappointed in how easy and short the first episode was. I hope future episodes provide more than a couple of hours of game time.
