GameFocus - Wallace & Gromit: Fright of the Bumblebees Review

GameFocus writes: "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 Max (also releasing on XBLA) & Strong Bad's series on WiiWare, has taken the same recipe that made those games such an enjoyment to play and has continued that tradition here. The first game in the series (and previously released on PC) titled Fright of the Bumble Bees will appeal to both fans of the animated source material and those looking for a fun distraction."

Pros

+ 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

Cons

- 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 (PC, Wallace & Gromit in Fright of the Bumblebees, Xbox 360) 7.7/10
