  1. The upcoming film makes for decent source material, and you couldn't ask for a more faithful or inventive game. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  2. It is like a beautifully handmade plasticine set with cameras lined up, musical and vocal talent at the ready - and then Arnold Schwarzenegger stands on it, comes up with a cheesy one-liner and ruins the whole experience.
  3. The prayer-answering adventure game, this is a jaunt the term 'cracking' was invented for. [Xbox World]
  4. The animation quality is fantastic, even rivaling the movie. The voiceacting, sound effects and soundtrack are all top shelf.

    From the GTA meets "Luigi's Mansion" style gameplay, to the top notch audio and humor, Wallace & Gromit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit delivers a solid gaming experience that will entertain and delight both fans of the animated film and gamers just looking for a something new to check out.
  6. Vastly superior to nearly every single movie-based video game I've personally played throughout the entire year. That being said, the game still doesn't have what it takes to compete with the big boys of the action/platform genre.
  7. If tag-team action/platforming is what you're after, then Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit is an excellent choice.
  8. Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit isn't a bad game by any means, but it brings nothing new to the genre.
  9. A slightly suspect tempo and structure of the game leaves it feeling less enthralling then it could have been, whilst repetition sinks in to ensure this is one game best played in short burst; however these are small complaints over what is a thoroughly entertaining adaptation of a hilarious film.
  10. The game looks and sound great. The town has great detail and an elaborate layout that makes each new place look different but still seem to be part of the same setting.
  11. Frustrating, when things like camera angles get in your way the game starts to loose any fun that you may have been having.
  12. It's a good effort, but it's just not worth more than bargain bin prices.
  13. Park and his team's creative modelling skills make the films magical, but in replacing them with computer graphics this game delivers pretty average fare. That said, its cartoon visuals and helpful prompts should keep younger children amused for hours.
  14. There are simply too many characters to remember, too many quests to keep track of and too many different devices and combat moves to simply remember them all.
  15. Not brilliant, but it's a competent licensed title that should appeal to hardcore W&G fans. [Nov 2005, p.149]
  16. A delightful movie game that's sure to satisfy. [Nov p.92]
  17. The gameplay is not the most involved or varied we've ever seen, but as far as movie tie-in's go it's one of the best.
  18. The cute claymation couple look and sound pretty good in this mission-based platformer, but the gameplay isn't all that compelling.
  19. If you don't know what a BunGun is already, then Were-Rabbit is best left to the big screen rather than the small. [Holiday 2005, p.68]
  20. In the end, W & G does what it set out to do, and in that, respect is a very solid title.
