  1. The Bogey Man is another great entry into the series, and if you've stuck with the series so far, you'll enjoy this one as well. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, and there's nothing in the way of new mechanics introduced for this entry, but then again it's not necessary to throw something new at the player every time, as long as the script and dialogue manage to deliver as well as they do these series of adventures.
  2. It isn’t as much fun to play as Muzzled!, but The Bogey Man’s surprising puzzle-structure improvement and the usual cinema-quality story and cut-scenes do provide a good-but not-quite-satisfying ending to the first season of Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures.
  3. Just walking around the town is its own reward, with numerous nods to past episodes. On the other hand, like any of the episodic Telltale games, knowledge of the prior titles in the series isn't required to jump into Bogey Man, but seriously recommended!
  4. Wallace and Gromit is in no way a bad game, just not nearly as good as the other products that Telltale has put out recently. This isn’t to say that people who are fans of the movies or shows should pass this up, because it seems to play directly for those people.
  5. Fans of Wallace & Gromit will enjoy this game, even if they are new to adventure games. Conversely, adventure game enthusiasts will enjoy the adventure, even if they are new to the world of Wallace & Gromit. And, it’s a good game for the entire family to play together and enjoy, which is always a plus.
  6. “The Bogey Man” is fun, funny and again beautifully made. I can indeed easily see how a W&G fan who has no discernible interest in adventure games might love it. Episode four was of a piece with its three previous installments, although a bit less surprising, a bit less engrossing. One could almost hear the game designers yawning.
