In the end, Wallace and Gromit: Project Zoo is a decent platformer that makes great use of its license. Those with no interest in the franchise will find little to interest them in this title, but Wallace and Gromit fans will find that Project Zoo is a surprisingly solid game that does justice to its license.

Wallace & Gromit is a fully-functional game. It looks great, sounds nice and plays quite good. There isn’t anything that stands out too much from other games, though. If you’re a fan of the series though, you’ll want to pick up the package just to get more time with your clay friends. As an added bonus you’re able to unlock scenes from various Aardman films like “The Wrong Trousers” and “The Snoozatron.”

Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo looks terrific and sounds great - for the most part, but the gameplay is just not there in terms of excitement. With a fun plot and clever script, this is certainly an entertaining title. But for fans looking for thrills, or blood-pounding adventure, this game is not it.

Wallace & Gromit-Fans werden sich in diesem Spiel sicher sofort heimisch fühlen. Die Charaktere besitzen nämlich denselben originellen Humor und sehen den Knetgummi-Figuren obendrein zum Verwechseln ähnlich. Einige unter euch wird die fehlende Lokalisierung sicher weniger erfreuen, aber dadurch wird wenigstens der originelle Humor der beiden in keinster Weise beschnitten. Fans sollten auf jeden Fall einen Blick wagen!

Het eindverdict: Wallace & Gromit In Project Zoo is rekeninghoudend met de doelgroep een degelijke game. Gamers van tot pakweg 10-11 jaar zullen zeker het nodige plezier aan dit spel beleven, de oudere gamer daarentegen zal dit te makkelijk vinden en alleen enige uitdaging vinden in het lokaliseren van alle geldstukken. Ontwikkelaar Bam Entertainment spreekt van 10 à 15 uur alvorens je het spel voltooid, maar om dit aantal uurtjes spelplezier te halen zal je als geoefende gamer toch wel vrij intensief op zoek moeten naar de 180 muntjes. Toch moeten we dit soort games zeker aanmoedigen zodat de jongste Xboxertjes een springplank hebben naar het grote werk dat later op hen staat te wachten.

Ultimately, Wallace and Gromit in Project Zoo isn’t going to turn the games industry upside down. It’s not a revolutionary title that’s a benchmark in its genre either. What it is though, is a good looking, enjoyable and family friendly experience. It embraces the Wallace and Gromit license and stays true to the original TV series that we love so much. Buy it for the kids, and when they’re out have a go yourself. Just don’t get caught.

Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo is a platformer based on the animated clay adventures of Wallace and his pet dog Gromit. They are the brainchild of Nick Park's Aardman production house, the group also responsible for the Chicken Run movie. Project Zoo is almost exactly what game players would expect from a game based on already established cartoon characters.

Wallace, Gromit and pals all look fantastic, and the designers have captured the essence of their personalities wonderfully. Everyone moves and acts as expected. However, part of the charm of the animated shorts is the use of visual humor, which isn't really represented as much as it could be in this game, aside from the cutscenes. The objects scattered around are also drawn well, but the backgrounds aren't as clearly delineated and appear somewhat blocky in comparison.

At the end of the day Wallace & Gromit just doesn’t bring anything new to the platform table, but then again, there is a significant lack of quality platform games available for the Xbox. Most recently, Voodoo Vince stole our hearts (or at least poked at them with tiny needles). In the Xbox world where platform games are a rare find, gamers may be a bit more tolerant of this particular game.

Wallace and Gromit is a good thing for kids and die-hard Wallace and Gromit fans. It's non-violent, it's funny for both kids and adults, and if players end up being casual rather than anal about the little stuff, this game will provide a long platform experience. For hardcore platform fans, definitely rent this first -- or skip it altogether.

Frontier has done an excellent job of creating a platformer that's authentic and true to the world of Wallace and Gromit, but it's done a rather shoddy job at creating a good platformer. Based on the classic 3D formula set out by Nintendo's Super Mario 64, Wallace and Gromit adds a few touches of ingenuity here and there, but falters in several departments, whether it's technical or tuning, or camera problems or irregular and poor framerates (though I guess framerates are technically a department). Wallace and Gromit is a good thing for kids.

Erfinder Wallace und Wunderhund Grommit wollen im Hüpfspiel dem Pinguin-Bösewicht McFeathers das Handwerk legen. Also hüpft Gromit über Plattformen und ballert mit der Bananenkanone auf Affen. Die 3D-Kamera müssen Sie dabei manuell drehen, was der Übersicht schadet. Fans der Vorlage können zugreifen.

Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo is a game that could prove entertaining for fans of Nick Park's peculiar pair, but, as a 3D platformer, it's simply not that impressive. When you add the game's relatively short length (of around six hours) to the overall lack of polish, Project Zoo isn't a terribly attractive purchase, but it can make a decent rental.

At the end of the day Wallace & Gromit just doesn’t bring anything new to the platform table, and when you are going up against huge holiday sequels like Jak II and Ratcher and Clank: Going Commando this loveable canine and his master are probably going to be overlooked by all but the youngest gamers.

Rha, non après Futurama qui m'est très cher, voici qu'une autre de mes séries d'animation préférées a également droit à une adaptation vidéoludique moyenne. Le jeu est sympa d'un point de vue visuel mais le gameplay étant ce qu'il est, on s'arrache les cheveux devant les problèmes de caméra et le maniement du personnage avec en tête de liste des sauts crispants au possible. J'en pleure tiens.

Wallace et Gromit aurait pu être un bon jeu si seulement il n'y avait pas ces soucis de jouabilité. Et vous avouerez que c'est un défaut très gênant pour un jeu de plates-formes ! Les phases de combat ne s'en sortent pas mieux surtout à cause de cette satanée caméra qui a le don de mal s'orienter ! Au final, on se retrouve certes avec un jeu mignon, plein d'humour et de bonus alléchants à débloquer, mais qui est assez énervant à cause de ces problèmes de gameplay qui viennent gâcher le plaisir.

The fact that Wallace and Gromit have made the leap to video games is not too surprising. What is surprising is how long it has taken them to transition from clay to polygons. The release of Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo should appease those who have been anxiously waiting to interact with the eccentric inventor, Wallace, and his lovable dog, Gromit, as the pair attempts to foil the latest diabolical scheme of the malicious penguin, Feathers McGraw. A closer inspection of the game, however, reveals decidedly uneventful gameplay that won’t hold the attention of hardened gamers.

Although at least they do manage to preserve some authenticity of the series, the graphics still manage to slow down at times and the video clips have been unlocked and watched far too quickly.

Den som gillar duon Wallace och Gromit har några timmars underhållning att hämta här - och det är ju inte fy skam.

Les jeux de plate-forme 3D ne sont pas légion sur PC et Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo se fait une petite place facile. Mais le résultat manque de pêche et il y a largement mieux en ce moment.

While the charming story and characters will make fans want to play the game simply to see what happens next, unfortunately at some point in the game they will get frustrated. That's because, on a basic level, Wallace and Gromit in Project Zoo is a horrible game. Play control is sluggish and unresponsive, and Gromit is one video game character in desperate need of a double jump. You'll die A LOT simply because you never know if Gromit will grab onto that next ledge or plummet to the bottomless pit below. Worse yet, the camera angles are absolutely atrocious, and you'll wrestle with moving the camera around more than controlling Gromit. I guess fans will have to wait for the upcoming feature film to get a real new Wallace and Gromit fix.
