The visual style of Episode 4 is virtually indistinguishable from the previous games, but that isn’t really a problem. Bold use of colors makes each scene clear, easy to understand, and generally clean enough to search through. Small cameos and inside jokes also lie in wait for seasoned Wallace and Gromit fans; one such joke even manages to worm its way into Telltale’s first Monkey Island chapter. While I did not personally find “The Bogey Man” to be as enthralling as “Muzzled”, it is certainly one of the best games of the series and will no doubt appeal to fans and newcomers alike.
This is the fourth and last chapter in the series, and it feels a bit claustrophobic mainly because Telltale recycles so many assets and locations from before. We understand that's the nature of the episodic beast, but it doesn't change the fact that it feels like we've seen much of this game before. Still, this four episode series has felt like a welcome shot of Wallace & Gromit, with all the invention and charm that the duo is known for.
The Bogey Man is a fine way to end the series and outside of the usual complaints and trial and error puzzles it continues the excellence of the series so far. Fans of adventure games that have not tried these out on PC really need to give their XBLA counterparts a whirl. The humor and storytelling make these some of the best adventures on the service and definitely worth checking out if you are in the mood for some classic point-and-click action.
