    5 for being playable and having the original voice actor for Wallace. The audio was recorded VERY poorly, I get better audio off an old VHS of the show. The character models are spot on, but the animation is far too robotic, which leads me to believe that not much time had been spent there at all. If Aardman could do the old shorts with claymation and have very lively, animated movements,5 for being playable and having the original voice actor for Wallace.

If Aardman could do the old shorts with claymation and have very lively, animated movements, why are the character animations so terrible here? There's also the issue that dialogue gets cut off at times for no reason. Frustrating.

    Bottom line? Watch the old show, it's on Netflix.

  1. Confounding puzzles aside, “Fright of the Bumblebees” functions nicely as an adventure game for just about any audience or age group. The humor is varied, the gameplay is accessible, and the challenge is substantial without being frustrating.
  2. Overall, while it certainly captures a lot of its source material on spec, Wallace & Gromit's other strengths - Peter Sallis, Gromit shrugging or staring despondently into the camera, needless contraptions and simple directorial flourishes - are sorely missed in Fright of the Bumblebees.

    A brilliantly British and charming but cheesy title. There's room to improve, but there's still a grand old time to be had here.
