Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were Rabbit Video Game

Wallace and Gromit has come such a long way over the years. I remember watching A Grand Day Out as a very young child, in which the duo travels to the moon to sample cheese. Wallace's silliness mixed with Gromit's silence sarcasm makes for the perfect comedic pair. The short films and TV series that included the two characters were created primarily with stop motion. However, things have changed since the 90's when they first came to life.

The Curse of the Were Rabbit came out in 2005, and is the only full length feature of Wallace and Gromit. Shortly after, a video game for both Playstation 2 and Xbox was released, following the plot of the film. My little sister and I were very excited to control the characters rather than just watch them go on adventures. It was also interesting to see them transformed from clay-like figures to 3D animated figures. Above is a clip of the gameplay, complete with Wallace and Gromit themselves, trying to save the neighborhood from an infestation of rabbits.
