The voice talent is also expertly done despite the lack of Peter Sallis's voice as Wallace and overall, it really is the perfect package for Wallace and Gromit fans

Those who don’t follow Wallace&Gromit religiously will be introduced to a world with great voice acting, bundled with wonderful writing

the voiceover work here is once again top notch. Fans of the series are probably disappointed to hear that Peter Sallis did not lend his voice to Grand Adventures, but Ben Whitehead takes up the vocal reins quite nicely.

Characters come to life with excellent voice acting

Having heard the new voice for Wallace, I agree that Whitehead is the best alternative next to Sallis himself, and Telltale Games deserve much credit for this choice.

great animation and voice acting; captures all the style, humour, levity, and charm of the cartoon perfectly

While it's disappointing that Peter Sallis isn't present to reprise his role as Wallace, his replacement does a surprisingly fantastic job, as do the rest of the cast, even those who are only heard as angry British voices shouting from windows. The music is also classic Wallace&Gromit fare, and suits the tone perfectly.
