Elementaire mon cher Gromit, TellTale s'est encore surpassé.
AusGamers (Jun 10, 2009)
This episode is less referential to the Wallace and Gromit canon of TV or cinematic work, instead building on the good work, characters and setting of Fright of the Bumblebees. Whilst you don’t need to have completed the first episode, because The Last Resort now establishes Grand Adventures as a stand alone W&G experience all on its own, it would help.

Obwohl es natürlich nicht mehr so überrascht wie die erste Episode, bietet auch The Last Resort trotz der Kürze große Unterhaltung. Die Story um das Strandressort mitten in der West Wallaby Street ist so abgefahren, wie Fans das erwarten - auf so eine Idee kann eben nur Erfinder Wallace kommen! Die Typen sind verschroben bis liebenswert und die 3D-Umgebung könnte britischer kaum sein, auch weil die originale Sprachausgabe viel Atmosphäre zaubert. Allerdings beginnt alles etwas zu simpel, so dass man schon denkt, dass Telltale in Sachen Rätsel in die unrühmlichen Zeiten von Sam & Max zurück gefallen sei. Aber das ist nur das erste Kapitel, denn im zweiten geht's schon etwas kniffliger zur Sache, auch wenn nie Unmögliches verlangt wird. Ein wenig stört, dass wieder nur die bekannten Leute durch die bekannten Straßen, Läden und Vorgärten tigern. Unterm Strich bleibt eine gelungene und sympathische Umsetzung der Aardman-Vorlage.

On its own, The Last Resort stands rather nicely. It is chock-full of amusing dialogue, brassy musical cues, and attractive clay-like graphics. As a game, it is substantially improved over its predecessor, and offers plenty of variety and amusement for both hardcore fans and newcomers. While the replayability of Episode 2 is somewhat limited due to its single-solution design, the overall experience is simply too much fun to pass up. Any fan of adventure titles will find Wallace and Gromit: The Last Resort to be well worth the money.
Blend Games (May 05, 2009)
In the end, you already know whether or not you will like The Last Resort. If you're a fan of point-and-click adventures or the Wallace & Gromit series then this game is perfectly suited for you. And if you enjoyed the previous game then you're in luck: The Last Resort is smarter, funnier, and simply more enjoyable than its predecessor, which itself was a great game. It's a perfect example of what episodic gaming should be, providing a short and entertaining experience that doesn't overstay its welcome.
As a standalone game, this episode is undoubtedly more entertaining than the first. The third chapter (solving the crime) is particularly fun to play, and it makes for the best gaming moment so far in the series.
Telltale Games is on a roll with these games, and after two installments, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures continue to entertain. Their knack for highlighting specific elements that attracted people to these characters in their original incarnations and bringing them to vibrant life while allowing players to interact with them is genius, and is the main reason these titles are worth treasuring. Adventure gamers have gone hungry for far too long, but Telltale has made sure they’re keeping us satisfied. Please sir, can we have another?

Despite not being quite as good as the first episode, I think The Last Resort is still a solid and fun episode. It’s a shame that you can only buy all four episodes at once and not pick and choose, but I don’t think Telltale will disappoint with the other episodes, because I certainly enjoyed myself here. I don’t think any fan of Wallace & Gromit could stay in The Last Resort and not walk away satisfied.
Cheat Code Central (May, 2009)
The Last Resort falls slightly short of the debut episode. Overall, it's not a huge disappointment, because the game's characters are still quite charming and there's a lot of smart stuff being worked into the series that sets it apart from your average point-and-click adventure. As far as adventure games go, Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures has yet to eclipse Telltale's previous efforts with Sam & Max and Strongbad, but there's still hope the next two episodes will deliver on this series' promise.
GameStar (Germany) (May, 2009)
Eigentlich sind Adventures nicht mein Ding, aber ich liebe die Wallace und Gromit-Filme, und das Frustpotential der Rätsel liegt tiefer als ein Liegestuhl. Des einen Freud ist des anderen Leid: Profis sind maßlos unterfordert. Die stimmige Animationen und die hervorragenden (englischen) Sprecher fangen die Atmosphäre der Filmvorlagen gekonnt ein, daher werden Fans gut unterhalten. Wer Fright of the Bumble Bees mochte, darf wieder zugreifen.
Gamers' Temple, The (Jul 23, 2009)
In the end, The Last Resort feels less like a continuation of the series, and more like a time-waster: it's as if the developers wanted an episode to get a feel for the characters and style of the game, before diving back into the kind of game that Fright of the Bumblebees was. The good news? They're obviously growing more comfortable with this cast, and with the world of Wallace and Gromit. What's worrying is that this comfort doesn't seem to enhancing (or fixing) the gameplay in any way, as well as the game's failure to capture that moving, overly detailed sense of wonder that permeates the films. Maybe next time, right?
IGN (May 12, 2009)
The Last Resort is a fun game and worth the price of admission for gamers who are Wallace and Gromit fans. The visual style of the show and the overall humor are the high points here, but we were disappointed that the action never really moved beyond a few rooms in Wallace's house and seemed to bounce back and forth among a cast of characters who are nowhere near as compelling as the inventor and his dog. We're just confused as to why Wallace and Gromit have so little to do with each other in their own game.
GameBoomers (May, 2009)
It isn’t a hard game in any event, although I did get held up here and there. It isn’t terribly long either, with probably four to six hours of playing time seeing you through. Some more gadgets would have been nice, but all up it is engaging fun, and for those who like the Wallace world, you would be hard pressed to be disappointed. I do like that world but I did think the game lacked a little something. It was charming, but perhaps a little too familiar. Or perhaps for me there is only so much you can do with a quaint elderly gentleman and his debonair dog before it loses a little interest.

Niet alles wat Telltale Games aanraakt, verandert in goud. Het kan ook doordeweekse klei zijn...
Adventurespiele (Aug 30, 2010)
Die Story zur Episode "Urlaub unter Tage" ist fantasievoll und witzig. Nur ein verrückter Erfinder kann auf die Idee kommen, aus seinem überfluteten Keller einen Strand für die Öffentlichkeit zu machen und auf diese Weise Geld zu verdienen. Da passt es perfekt, dass am Ende keine Mark Gewinn dabei herausspringt. Die deutsche Sprachausgabe ist leider nicht so gut gelungen. Gegenüber den englischen Stimmen wirken die deutschen Synchronstimmen oft nicht echt. Das große Manko ist jedoch die Steuerung. Diesen Punkt sollte Telltale Games vielleicht noch einmal überdenken. An der Grafik, die sich in großen Bildern präsentiert, und den witzigen Charakteren kann man wieder einmal den Humor des Entwicklerstudios erkennen. Schade, dass die Reihenfolge der Episoden in der deutschen Fassung umgestellt wurde, denn dadurch verlieren manche Anspielungen ihren Sinn.
Adventure Advocate (Jun 07, 2009)
Εν κατακλείδι, το ‘The Last Resort’ κινείται στα χνάρια του πρώτου παιχνιδιού, χωρίς όμως να διαθέτει την φρεσκάδα και το ειδικό βάρος του. Ελπίζω το επόμενο επεισόδιο αν μη τι άλλο να είναι μεγαλύτερο σε μέγεθος αλλά και να διαθέτει περισσότερους γρίφους αλλά και ποικιλία. Σε γενικές γραμμές, η σειρά έχει αρκετό ενδιαφέρον και θα είναι πραγματικά κρίμα να παρακμάσει.
D+PAD Magazine (May 22, 2009)
It’s flawed, then, but that’s not to say it’s lacking in charm. The puzzles are interesting, which is vitally important, and the setting once again promises a decent long afternoon of adventure gaming. It’s a shame, though, to see the script falling down when it comes to Wallace and Gromit themselves, and it’s also a bit depressing that so many environments are recycled from the first episode. But, whilst its flaws bring it down, the game always remains charming, consistently throwing friendly, lovable moments in your direction.

While still an enjoyable experience, The Last Resort fails to live up to its potential, and is more of an “Average Outing” than a Grand Adventure.
