Quoted from Bone: Out From Boneville Reviews:Check out these quotes from Bone: Out From Boneville reviews & previews
"The 3D backgrounds for the game are incredible; simply rendered but perfect for the style. And the supporting characters look exactly as they do in the comics."
"Puzzles and mini-games do tend to change in tone and logic, according to whom you control. Fone Bone will sweet-talk his way out, while Phoney Bone might just insult the wrong person (or bug). Smiley, the third Bone cousin, isn’t a playable character. Unfortunately, Phoney’s reversed hide and seek puzzle is tedious, illogical, and boring, despite originally sounding like an interesting idea."
"We're huge fans of the genre, and really buy into the thought of regular episodic content, but we'd demand it at a significantly reduced price and with an approach that actually panders to the long-term fans of this style of game - as opposed to young kids with no patience. The fact that Telltale Games has grabbed the rights to Sam & Max is genuinely good news, but the team really needs to go back and look at what made the old adventure games great, because as much goodwill as we have for what the team is doing, we can't pretend that Out From Boneville was everything we hoped it would be."
"Ultimately, Bone: Out From Boneville is probably too lightweight, too easy and unsophisticated for most adventure gamers... but don't hold that against it."
"The game has charm. The look and sound are nicely done, but the game is just too short and does not present any major or innovative challenges. This is a simple game, but still it does manage to entertain."
