  1. There's a lot going for this game, but there's also several strikes against it, namely bad camera design and sticky gameplay issues.
  2. 67
    Frontier has done an excellent job of creating a platformer that's authentic and true to the world of Wallace and Gromit, but it's done a rather shoddy job at creating a good platformer.

    The models and animation capture the look of the short films, yet look rough around the edges; the camera is decent, but fights you when it really matters; and the music is quite good but strangely out of place. [Oct 2003, p.73]

    Some tasks may be a little too tricky for young players. [Dec 2003, p.146]
  5. A game that could prove entertaining for fans of Nick Park's peculiar pair, but, as a 3D platformer, it's simply not that impressive.
  6. A slow-moving game. Most of everything you do in it is platform jumping and the jumping is not exact enough. It was also tiresome; I didn’t want to have to do any part of the level over.
  7. There simply isn’t anything terribly new or exciting in Project Zoo.

    The worst problem is that certain jumps are damn nigh impossible - it's not even a question of skill. [Nov 2003, p.176]

    It's got great animation and a weird sense of humor. Although some jumps are hard, its still fun. Watching Gromit kick Wallace is funny!
