Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Once again another
movie adaptation arrives on the PlayStation 2 with Wallace and Gromit:
The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and features the loveable plasticine
characters of Wallace (the man) and Gromit (the dog). Although the
audience of the movie is aimed at all ages, this current incarnation of
the game is aimed at the younger gamer and with that said… onto the
Wallace and Gromit:
The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is your traditional action/adventure game
that takes elements of platforming and the movie to merge into an
extremely easy to play title. Gamers get to play as Wallace, Gromit and
a third playable character, Hutch the rabbit, with all the characters
have differing abilities, and you can switch between them at will.
Also, when you're
playing with one of them, you can summon the others to solve puzzles
that require two people. It's this technique of swapping between
characters to reach different areas, and then getting them to work
together to complete puzzles that is both unusual for a game for
children, and the title's greatest strength.
Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit looks like an animated
treat on the PlayStation 2 and although it doesn’t look like
stop-motion, it actually suits the title perfectly with its Saturday
morning style of cartoon graphics. The title also features some great
cutscenes from the movie to help progress the storyline along nicely.
As with the
graphics, the soundtrack and sound effects are spot on the actors have
done a brilliant job at recreating the voices of the original two
characters. The game also contains a very addictive soundtrack with all
the sounds and bangs of big brass bands of merry old England.
Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is a well made title
that younger gamers will simply adore, although I’m not too sure if
there is much in this title for the older gamer because it is a little
on the easy. However, if you want your kids to have a great wholesome
game with great graphics, perfect sound and fun gameplay than you better
check this one out!
