Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures Episode 4: The Bogey Man
The Rise Of episodic gaming has really benefited the adventure genre, with new Sam & Max and Monkey Island games using the format, as well as everyone's favourite wrestler, Strong Bad. But for everyone craving something more British (or covered in cheese), Wallace and Gromit are here.
After defeating the moustachioed Mr Monty Muzzle in the last episode, our intrepid duo find themselves dealing with Wallace's accidental engagement to his less-than-desirable next-door neighbour.
After a stealthy Gromit finds out Wallace's future bride has an aversion to esteemed country club Prickly Thicket, a plan is set in motion. Unsurprisingly, Wallace soon finds himself a new member of said club, and is soon set with the task of saving it from destruction.
The game, as is par for the course (fnar fnar), is funny, but in a brief chuckle-and-smile kind of way, rather than the laugh-out-loud way of Monkey Island. That said, the song about golf that plays during Wallace's initiation to the club is simply priceless. The puzzles all fall under the banner of medium difficulty, not signposted by any means, but nothing to tax point-and-click vets. The voice acting is pretty good, although the lack of Peter Sallis as Wallace is a shame. The dude is getting on a bit though, so I won't begrudge him a rest. This is a sedate game that won't appeal to everyone, but for a relaxing afternoon, whip out some v cheese and crackers, settle down, and enjoy some time in the company of the most famous modelling clay in the world.
