  • Summary: The diabolical penguin, Feathers, has imprisoned all the baby animals in a zoo, and it's up to Wallace and Gromit to rescue them. Charge through the gates as the resourceful and adventurous Gromit, and receive helpful hints from Wallace. This indomitable duo has an array of new inventions such as the Porridge Gun and the Banana Launcher, plus interesting contraptions built by Wallace himself. Gromit's break dancing, backflips, and sneaking moves will also prove valuable in your adventure. Collapse

  1. Definitely worth trying, and legitimately funny in places. [Dec 2003, p.154]
  2. Just doesn’t bring anything new to the platform table.

    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.
  4. Fans of the series should definitely give it a shot because the game does do the Wallace & Gromit name justice in every respect. With a little tweaking of the camera and level design Project Zoo could have had a bit more flash, but it still ends up being pretty fun overall.
  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. When you add the game's relatively short length (of around six hours) to the overall lack of polish, Project Zoo isn't a terribly attractive purchase, but it can make a decent rental.
  6. The worst problem is that certain jumps are damn nigh impossible - it's not even a question of skill. [Nov 2003, p.176]
  7. 50
    A mixed bag, providing plenty of fun action, along with some aggravation. [Nov 2003, p.60]

    Ignore the critics, this is one of the best platformers on the XBox. Camera is occasionally a bit frustrating, but the level design is fantastic, especially the final "factory" level. The voice acting and claymation-style animation capture the look and feel of the originals perfectly. Recommended. Expand

    While i say this is a good game, it can get sodding annoying at times!
