Funny, Fantastic game
19 June 2001 | by gaylord_fokkerSee all my reviews

Pretty old game but there are not much games with this kind of humer. The graphics are cool, not the graphics we are used to these day's. This is truely an golden oldy. The story is about two animal detectives, a dog and a rabbit who has to solve a crime. They travel trough america to find a lost circus freak en his beloved who works also i the circus. I think i like this game cause lucas arts makes such specific humoristic games that i love. Like in the humor in great movies only then in the games.
