Good movie

Great clay movie for kids about 8+
age 6+

Great for younger kids if played with an adult

My 6 y.o. son and I have had a great time playing this together. Basically I operate the keyboard and mouse and we figure out how to solve the puzzles together. It's funny, clever, challenging at times, but it's overall great fun and been a nice activity for the two of us to do together for 30 min in the evenings. Between the accents and the "Briticisms" it's sometimes a little hard to follow the dialogue, but it gets easier with time.

Is It Any Good?

Anyone who has enjoyed Wallace & Gromit's animated films will absolutely love Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures. The writing, the voice acting, the humor, and even the look (characters in the game really appear to be made of clay) are pretty much perfect. The stories are imaginative and often hilarious, and the puzzles that must be solved in order to advance the plot are ingeniously designed. Even the way the game gives you hints works wonderfully, as all the hints are delivered as dialogue in the story. For instance, if you, as Wallace, have been wandering about town, unsure of your next move, you might hear Wallace say, "I wonder how Gromit's doing back at home." Aha! Now you know your next step is back at the house. As Wallace might say, cracking good job!
