Week in Arcade: Wallace & Gromit x3

wallacegromitxblaA three-pack of British Humor this week, completing the first season of the Wallace and Gromit series.

Wallace & Gromit Episodes 2, 3, 4

If the first episode did not motivate you enough to pick up the rest of the series, then these releases won’t either. That’s a shame though because these are truly entertaining point-and-click adventures.

Some problems are evident from the PC translation, including a maddening camera and finnicky controls that do not like to lock on to what you want. It’s also important to note that the PC version is currently on sale at $20 for the entire season (with fewer control problems), where the complete XBLA version will run you $40.

Either way you play, you’ll be gaining some wonderful animation that is true to the original animation, and a sense of humor that will appeal to a wide variety of audiences.
