Summary

Way too easy and way to short

The Good

It's great to see the Bone comic transformed into a 3d Graphical adventure. Telltale has produced a nice looking, and great sounding product, with a nice storyline!

The Bad

Unfortunately it was way too short, and too easy. You can easily finish the game for the first time in 2 hours. (which doesn't justify its price: at least $20, depending on taxes) Furthermore, they tend to be very strict to the original comic book, and therefore for people who've read the comicbook there isn't really anything new in the game. Two different action sequences (locust & rat chase) were repetitive, and two puzzles involving Ted's brother were almost identical.

The Bottom Line

It is a graphical adventure game of extremities: - Very nice acting - decent graphics but -way too easy -way too short
