GAME DESCRIPTION: Coinciding with DreamWorks’ blockbuster film, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, this game lets gamers experience all the wit, fun, and humor the Wallace & Gromit series first-hand. Free-roaming gameplay style allows players to freely explore the world with one of the game’s three playable characters and use the amazing Bungun to turn anything that’s not nailed down in the interactive environments into a weapon!
* Play as Gromit, Wallace, and Hutch and swap between the three on the fly to use their unique skills
* A wide variety gadgets, including the Electric Screwdriver, Bunny Hopper, and Were-rabbit Decoy
* Watch the village’s pesky critters turn into ferocious Were-beasts as day ends and night begins!
* Fully Interactive Environments with all kinds of gadgets to create hilarious mayhem!

PLAY: You can play as three different characters: Gromit, Wallace, and Hutch. You have to get familiar with these characters because they will each become necessary during different areas of the game. Most of the game is very straightforward and standard game play fare—which is very good for children. There are also some really nifty puzzles that are fun to solve for kids. The missions are easy yet very entertaining.

GRAPHICS: The graphics are perfect for the release. It looks like a cartoon and will appeal to children. The cut scenes are cute but not terribly important—at least not for us adults.

SOUND: The voice acting is a lot of fun. If you can’t find the fun in it you are lacking a funny bone.

FRANKLY: With a plethora of extras and a lot of general silliness, this is certain to strike a chord with children. Kids don’t even need to have seen the film in order to enjoy it. This is one of the rare times when a game based on a film is actually close enough to the movie in style and at the same time fun enough to recommend.
