@Mysterysheep: I though all of them were on PC, I'm talking about XBLA.

Also, that was an awful trailer.

@RedSox8933: The first three are on PC. This is just a trailer for the PC version.

" @Pie: I stand by it. Go look at the screenshots. All the models have fingerprints on to make it look like they were handmade. Their mouths don't move at a million frames per second because that isn't how claymation works. Things like that prove that actual thought has been put into it. "
Im just trying to annoiy you.

I still haven't played episode 2 yet. I need to get back on track with my Wallace & Gromit episodes. Although I still have season 2 of Sam & Max, and all of Strongbad to get through too.  And the monkey island remake AND the tales of monkey island are coming out soon. These adventure games have got ontop of me. Damn you SuperMooseman for getting me into these games!!! Heck, I've also got the first three broken sword games to get through.

I buy too many games. I've only talked about adventure games here, I've got millions of other games to get through too. And yet when I see another game I like the look of on the shelves I feel compelled to buy it. Someone help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@ SuperMooseman :

I wasn't referring to the technical animation,but rather the models in the animation. [ I should have been clearer w/ my Accusations,and I appologize for that. ] Also. . .the fingerprints are a great touch,but if the models look rather unlike the origional ones, then they do nothing for me.


Note normal wallace and gromit :

and then note the game : 

http://www.giantbomb.com/wallace-gromits-grand-adventures-episode-1-fright-of-the-bumblebees/61-21670/all-images/52-182305/wallacegromit101_2009_03_24_07_53_39_09/51-939250/

 It doesn't really look like traditional claymation Imo,and looks more like poorly done normal models [ Imo,of course ].

Note Platypus, The only other Game w/ the claymation style I am currently aware of :

http://www.giantbomb.com/platypus/61-7829/all-images/52-173270/platypus1/51-222764/?offset=13

Imo, it looks alot better than the ''Wallace and Gromit's Grand Adventures'' games.

 
''Uninformed Dickhead'' ? Rather tasteless,''sir''. God... -Respect for the guy w/ the awesome name. It's fine if you disagree w/ me,but you don't need to be a jerk about it.

Platypus was actual claymation.

Like he modeled everything and took thousands of still frame photos.

@Relys:
 That is badass. Wallace and Gromit should do it :o!

@Plasticcow:
I can think of a few other games that used claymation: Neverhood, Skullmonkeys, Primal Rage, Down in the Dumps and Tanita: Plasticine Dream. And there are probably a few that I missed. But some of the used still images of actual claymation figures which made them look a lot better than Wallace and Gromit. Then again, the game doesn't look terrible and they are churning out an episode every few months or weeks. If they had used a proces of photographing actual claymation figures it would have looked a lot better, but it would take them at least a year to do an episode. I think they did rather well within the limits of their game engine. Another approach could be creating a new engine which is able to produce more realistic looking and moving claymation figures. But then it would probably only run on really powerful pc's. And the kind of people that own state of the art pc's aren't the same people that enjoy playing adventure games.

Yeah, the sad thing is that the guy that created the game's house burned down, and he didn't get any money for the PSP and PSN versions.

Last I heard he was working on a new claymation game. I really feel sorry for him.

@ZwaanME: Oh no,I wasn't implying that it did look terrible. It just doesn't rly capture the feel of wallace and gromit for me. I must say, well made points. :D

@Relys: Also Neverhood was claymation. Although it is an old(er) game, its quite the fun!
