Wallace & Gromit star in a new series of adventure games which have perhaps the best cheese-based gameplay of all time!

From the makers of the new Sam & Max series comes the first in a new series called Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures: Fright of the Bumblebees. But can it match the humour with a "U" of the classic claymation cartoons?

It Looks Like Clay

The graphics are just awesome. Not since Clay Fighter have I seen game characters that looked so much like actual clay figures. You can even see fingerprints on a few of them, which shows just how awesome the details are. Also, if you're familiar with the animation or movies, you're probably whistling or humming its tune right now, and the music is equally good in this game.

Puzzles Involving Cheese

Wallace & Gromit haven't given up the cheese and crackers for this game, and this point-and-click adventure's puzzles reflect that. For instance, right before the start of the game, Wallace has finished a cheese-seeking robo-mouse that you have to break out of jail (it made sense in the game). The police constable who's holding it won't let it go until it passes an interview with him, but unfortunately, he doesn't realize it can't talk. So, you have to plant cheese strategically (for instance, in the policeman's hat) to get the robot to act correctly for the interview. Don't worry, it will make sense in the game, but it's just an example of the odd and hilarious puzzles this game offers.

The Queen's Humour

Other than maybe Ratchet & Clank, this is the funniest game I've played in the past several years. If you love the Wallace & Gromit animation, you'll get a movie's length more of it when you play this game. From the infinitely long contraptions to Gromit's eyebrow-raises, the humour is spot on and you'll want to click on everything just to hear what Wallace has to say. The best part is, this isn't the only game. Thirty dollars pays for Fright of the Bumblebees and three more games to come over the next three months. If you love Wallace & Gromit or at least fun and funny games, this game is a great deal.

Rating: 5

Price: $29.95 for this game and another episode each month for the next three months.
