Current Game: Monkey Island 4 (ResidualVM)
I wasn't planning on playing Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures right away, but I won the season in a contest!

So, I got the chance to play the whole game of Fright of the Bumblebees. And I loved it!

It felt so much like I was playing a cartoon, more so than any video game in any genre I have ever played before.

I bought Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo so that I could experience all of the Wallace & Gromit stories, and it's night and day (and not just because the games are different genres). In Project Zoo, Wallace & Gromit are doing things that you wouldn't see in the short cartoons (especially the lava level, which is more than a little jarring). But in Fright of the Bumblebees, even the action sequences are set up like those that you'd see in one of the shorts.

I only wish that The Last Resort would come out sooner.
