Telltale Games continues its interactive interpretation of Jeff Smith's beloved Bone comics with this second release in the series. Bone: The Great Cow Race follows the adventures of the three Bone cousins -- Fone, Phoney, and Smiley -- who are peculiar guests in a mythical, medieval countryside. Picking up where the first episode leaves off, the cousins have found sanctuary at a simple farmhouse, whose owners may not be the simple farmers that they seem to be.
The game features colorful 3D graphics, and the menus and dialog boxes are presented in the style of the comic series. Exploration of the game world is accomplished mostly through a traditional point-and-click interface, but occasional mini-games provide more action-oriented play. Much of the story's charm relies on the interaction between the three cousins and their disparate reactions to the people they meet on their journey, and the game allows players to take control of different lead characters in different situations. ~ T.J.
