  1. Having an almost two-games-in-one element to it, The Last Resort weaves the best of both gaming genres (point & click adventure and mystery) together seamlessly, expanding the Wallace & Gromit world with even more characters involved in the gameplay for yet more fun folly from the wacky wannabe inventor and his devoted doggie.
  2. Telltale Games more than most developers does a remarkable job of recreating the worlds of its franchises.
  3. It doesn't last long, at about three to four hours, but it concentrates on quality and humor. Just don't dare go on a vacation with these two...

    Wallace & Gromit: The Last Resort is a bit tougher than Telltale's usual adventure offerings, but if you're up for the challenge, this is one of the more quirky and adorable games in the developer's lineup.
  5. While the replayability of Episode 2 is somewhat limited due to its single-solution design, the overall experience is simply too much fun to pass up. Any fan of adventure titles will find Wallace and Gromit: The Last Resort to be well worth the money.
  6. Overall, The Last Resort is a good episode on its own, but weaker when compared to Fright of the Bumble Bees. Considering how you can only buy the game as a bundle on the PC, you have already paid for the experience. If you tried the demo of the first episode and still needed time to decide, I don’t believe this will change your mind.
  7. It's still very, very charming, and if you're not smiling while playing there's something wrong with you. Hopefully the upcoming episodes will continue to improve at a steady pace, because there's much more life to live in West Wallaby Street.
  8. As far as adventure games go, Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures has yet to eclipse Telltale's previous efforts with Sam & Max and Strongbad, but there's still hope the next two episodes will deliver on this series' promise.

    The Last resort is still enjoyable for fans of Wallace & Gromit, but seasoned adventurers will run through it like a summer breeze. [Aug 2009, p.74]

    The visual style of the show and the overall humor are the high points here, but we were disappointed that the action never really moved beyond a few rooms in Wallace's house and seemed to bounce back and forth among a cast of characters who are nowhere near as compelling as the inventor and his dog.
  11. Telltale continues to make great episode based adventure games. The second episode of Wallace and Gromit’s first season is both funny and fun to play.
  12. In the end, The Last Resort feels less like a continuation of the series, and more like a time-waster: it's as if the developers wanted an episode to get a feel for the characters and style of the game, before diving back into the kind of game that Fright of the Bumblebees was.
  13. Not as good as Fright of the Bumblebees, Last Resort is step back from the first game. The big problems of this second episode are a weak storyline, with poor jokes that don't make you laugh, and a few rooms and locations to explore.

    A pedestrian outing. [Aug 2009, p.74]
  15. If you haven't already bought the Wallace and Gromit episodes, don't start with this one -- if you have, then I'm sure you'll join me in looking forward to the next, hopefully more exciting chapter in the saga.

    The Last Resort is neither grand nor awful, offers almost nothing new, and to its detriment is definitely not about Wallace and Gromit.
  17. While still an enjoyable experience, The Last Resort fails to live up to its potential, and is more of an "Average Outing" than a Grand Adventure.
  18. But, whilst its flaws bring it down, the game always remains charming, consistently throwing friendly, lovable moments in your direction.

    It’s short and less funny then before. No new ideas this time. On the other side Wallace and Gromit is still a great adventure with hilarious situations and excellent visuals.
