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 review! 

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.  

Graphically, 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.  

In conclusion, 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!
