Summary: Pros: - maintains humor of the series: Fans of the clay-mation cartoons will find the usual sight gags and banter. - good writing/character scripting and characterizations: The writers took the time to study the characters, and placed good healthy doses of personality into them. - cut scenes are well animated: These maintain the overall feel of the clay-mation animations and move the story along nicely.
Summary: This game is cute, humorous, and many parts were enjoyable. They did an excellent job of portraying the characters and their personalities. But the game could easily have been more fun. There were some real design flaws that made many parts of the game nothing but frustrating. Some of the designers apparently think giving you many hours of gameplay means having you play the same area over and over ... and over and over and over and over... That's not what I'd call fun.
If you like the characters, this is an awesome game.

Summary: The animation and short films are classic Wallace and Grommit. The game has a great sense of humour and is enjoyable for ages 5 and up. The reasoning to figure some of the problems out might be too hard for the younger crew, but my 5 year old does quite well on it. I completed the game myself and found it challenging enough and entertaining to watch.
Summary: Wow. It's amazing to see a game actually match the movie/cartoon it was based after. The animation in the game; during the between-scenes-movies and during the actual game play, completely matches the clamation Wallace and Gromit that we know and love. The actual game itself is one of the most I've ever enjoyed due to the fact that it's not simply a game where you fight baddies from one end of the level to the next.
Summary: This is a really fun game!!!!! I think it is hard enough without being so hard that you give up. If you love the Wallace and Gromit videos you will LOVE Project Zoo because everyone stays in character and everyone sounds and looks just like they do in the movies. There is a lot of puzzle soving and jumping, but not so much that you start screaming and throw your controller across the room. You can save where ever you want which is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!
Summary: If your looking for an high intensity, dark and difficult game to play then don't buy this one. This is an easy platform adventure game that has terrific graphics, sound and a sense of humor. The levels are varied and the goal is clear. There are a lot of bonus levels and you get some pretty comical weapons too. The game play is smooth, Gromit is easy to control (and cute) and most of the time the camera angles are very good.
Summary: My kids love the characters and the story. I love the humor and the the graphics. I play it with my kids I like it so much. All around, this is a great game. I recommend it highly. My kids weren't into the Wallace and Gromit videos before this game. Now, they can't get enough of them.
