North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtTo this point, the famous Plasticine duo Wallace & Gromit haven't featured in a game worthy of their name. Project Zoo, fortunately, is a radical improvement on what's gone before. And while it's not without its flaws, it does deliver rousing fun to its younger target audience. The simple plots finds the evil Feathers McGraw taking control of the local zoo--and more notably locking up all the infant animals. They need saving and that's where our heroic duo come in. To rescue them, there's an entertaining platform game in the way, with some little diversions and mini-arcade games to keep things ticking along. It's well put together too: the graphics are strong and the interjections of the two lead characters, especially in the numerous cut scenes, will frequently raise a chuckle. The levels pit you against many of McGraw's gang and, as you'd expect, there are numerous items to collect and lots to explore. A nice added feature is that Wallace can turn some of the objects into some batty invention to help you on your way. It's a very easy game to get into and while the action won't get your pulse pounding, Project Zoo sets it stall out early as a provider of some good, leisurely, family-friendly entertainment. That it captures the flavour of Wallace & Gromit so well is a very welcome bonus. --Simon Brew
