Summary

Anthropomorphic dog and rabbity thing solve crime

The Good

This game rocks. The main game involves a hare-raising quest to find a missing bigfoot and the giraffe-necked girl that loves him. Along the way, you see the worst of America, aliens, and C&W star Conrad Bumpus!! You'll jump from Mt Rushmore, play golf, laugh at bad jokes, cry at good ones, and see several Star Wars references.

There are also bonus games which, once discovering, you can play at your leisure.

Puzzles are numerous, but are often logical (in their own illogical way). In typical Lucasarts way, they are item based. There are also many individuals to interact with and there are numerous conversation options. This is actually a pretty full and fulfulling game.

Great voice acting, graphics, gameplay, etc.

The Bad

It was literally painful to get this game to run on my souped up PIII system. This is an older game (archaic in computer years) that required running from dos and configuring the sound card. Even still, sometimes the sound would cut out.

Other than that problem, this was a very good game.

The Bottom Line

This is what they mean by a classic game. It has good graphics, sound, story, acting, puzzles- etc. Everything came together and while I wish there was a sequel, I know that they would louse it up.
