Telltale's first adventure game is a fairly short, graphically charming game which is clearly aimed at children. The humour would appeal to young kids and the puzzles are pretty easy. The minigames can be skipped if anyone finds them too difficult. It's not a great game, but it's not terrible either. Others have mentioned bugs, but apart from two moments of silence when characters should have been speaking, I didn't encounter any.

The pace of the game is quite slow, characters move ponderously and dialogue can't be skipped. For a point and click adventure there aren't that many things to click on. There are very few objects to find and even fewer puzzles that require using those objects. The game is mainly dialogue driven with lots of talking and is very linear, interspersed with set piece games and puzzles. These are quite simplistic and frankly I found them rather tedious, although kids would probably enjoy them.

I would not recommend this game for adults, but I would recommend it for the audience it was clearly intended for, young children.

EDIT: It's not obvious from the title, but this game is Act 1 of a two part series. The Great Cow Race is Act 2, so they should be played in order. Unfortunately the story is not complete, they should have made more episodes but didn't.

This is a short game, and probably one of the first games that came out of Telltale Games. It's simple, short and a good adventure game for kids. The story is good, but not great and even the dialogue isn't something that will be very memorable. My kids enjoyed it and I enjoyed playing it with my kids.

This is the first part of the Bone series (you need the other game to see the end of the story), and it's the first game published by Telltale. It's got great humor for people of all ages, puzzles are fair (only had to use the in-game help once to figure what I was doing wrong), the dialogues and story are very fun and the characters are remarkable and professionally voiced. Only con would be only having a 1024x764 resolution, that you have to choose (the default is 800x600). Two thumbs up, 10/10!

Bone Out From Boneville is the first adventure game made by telltale games. Did they start off with a bang or did they screw it up entirely ? In Bone out from boneville we take controll of two charecters. Fone Bone and Phoney Bone. We take controll of the characters after they get kicked out of theyre home town and travel across the land to find somewhere to live but after they get attacked by Locust they split up and they need to find each other. So how is Bone Out from Boneville ? This game is actually pretty good. The game is not like the other Telltale games where the story progress by itself. Theres tons of puzzles to solve. But there are some problems with the game as well. There are very annoying puzzles in the game. The game is also quite buggy and theres a problem where the charecter doesnt go where you want him to go. Overall the game is alot of fun and for the first telltale game its quite impressive. Great story. Awesome puzzles (excluding the possum one) and great art style. Just a few problems like minor bugs and thats pretty much it. Without a doubt give Bone Out From Boneville a try. I give Bone: Out From Boneville a 7.5/10

Positives: It's short, like two hours or under. The characters look about like you'd expect.

Negatives: It's tedious and boring, making it feel much longer than the short runtime.

'Bone' is one of my favorite books (graphic or otherwise) ever. It's a wonderful fantasy adventure. I also enjoy TellTale's games (though they aren't perfect). So I should love this, right? I wish.

Every task you're asked to complete is clearly busy work. None of the "puzzles" is truly driven by the story. They're just hoops to jump through in order to get to the next screen. The worst offender is when you're asked to guide Ted the bug across the river. Without a walkthrough, I never would have gotten across as the logic dicated by the pattern of his jumps breaks down when you get close to the other side. It looks like I should be able to make the jumps necessary as the stones are spaced just like rest, and I tried multiple spots to lead from, but there is only one single way to get across, and if you don't follow it, it won't allow you to make the jumps.

An additional crime, less painful but still aggravating, is the inability to skip voiced dialogue. I can generally read the text much faster than the voice actor will deliver it, and when I'm in the middle of an extended Q&A, I want to get it over with as soon as possible. But perhaps that's my impatience with the overall game. I just wanted to be done and wished I could speed up any little bit of it. This lack of skipability carries over into the end credits. They're slowly scrolled and, for some heinous reason, quadruple spaced. And you... can't... skip them.

To be fair, the early sections of the book are relatively uneventful, but maybe that should have been a sign to TellTale. 'Bone' would make a phenomenal animated movie, but videogames are an interactive medium, and that interaction needs to feel meaningful. The source material here, as much as I love it, doesn't bear the weight of player interaction.

Unless you're the most die-hard fan of TellTale's games, skip this one. Fans of the book? Stay away.

With only a few dollars balance left on my account, I remembered back to my childhood when "Bone" was the most relevant and popular graphic novel out there. It had great characters, an interesting plot, and an expansive world and mythology. Now all these factors should translate well into a game, right? Sadly, Telltale did not live up to the comic with this game.

Firstly, it is a point-and-click game. While in theory this would work in favour, there is just not enough to observe in the enviorments. It's a rather empty game, lacking in atmosphere and inspiration. The dull voice-acting doesn't help at all. There are several moments where the game transitions to a sort-of "mini-game" mode, and these segments do not work at all. They're unclear, dodgy in response, and attribute nothing to the experience.

All in all: Stick to the comic-book. F&@k this game.

From Jeff Smith's graphic novel to a telltale game chapter in the TTG bible. The story is three bone cousins Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, and Smiley Bone get seperated from each other and Fone discovers a vally full of crazy creatures. The game is amazing and the charaters in this game are memarable: Like Ted the Bug, The Great red dragon, and the Stupid, Stupid Rat creatures!! I give this game 9/10

I will not recommend this as it doesn't match the greatness of the comic books. You should read those first. This game is possibly just for hardcore fans as it doesn't have great plot structure except for doing chores.

Bone: Out From Boneville is a typical cartoonish Telltale game with no need for any prior knowledge of the Bone cartoon to appreciate. This game is no different from the other Telltale series (Sam n' Max, Strong Bad, etc.). The humor is abundant, and is appropriate for most age ranges (alcohol and tobacco use). The puzzles are intuitive, but not overly simple. The crisp graphics helps alleviate from tedious pixel hunting. The overall difficulty isn't too hard, and the game length is relatively short. I completed it in about two hours. There isn't any hidden bonuses like there are in Strong Bad. Very straight forward. A fun romp if you enjoy Telltale games.

As a fan of the books, it's interesting and sometimes entertaining to see Jeff Smith's characters running around on your computer. Unfortunately, Smith's artistic style didn't make the transition to the screen (Telltale's 'The Walking Dead' series is a great example of retaining the artist's style and tone). The characters and locations are here, but they don't feel genuine.

I'd recommend this only to die-hard Bone fans, or maybe children who have somehow discovered Bone but aren't old enough for the books yet.

[There's also an inventory glitch that prevents you from progressing past Gran'ma Ben's farm. I don't know how frequent it is, but Telltale doesn't have a solution. This hasn't impacted my review other than expediting it.]

I decided to grab a bunch of old Telltale games during the sale to see their roots. So far their roots are not a good place.

Not a huge fan of TellTale Games mainly because I hate Point-and-Clicks but this was okay I guess.
Visuals are nice, the characters are pretty funny/interesting. but the mini games are pretty s****y.
Walking around is akward especially with the odd camera angles you can't adjust.
Had no idea what to do in-game so thank god for hints.
A very very short game with little story to offer, meh.

2/10

Why do people hate on this game so much? This is Telltale's first game ever! Cut them some slack! Anyway, this is what you would expect from Telltale, point-and-click greatness. It basically follows the Bone series of graphic novels made by Jeff Smith. The series ran from 1991 to 2004 and DAMN were these good books. But the game however..is lacking. As expected from Telltale's first game, this one isn't as long as say, TWD or BTTF. No, this won't take very long. The graphics fit the feel of the comics to a t, and features voice acting to go with it. Everyone sounds on par to me, just how I would imagine them in the comics. Although, Grandma Ben and Smiley Bone can get on your nerves real quick. But other than that, both the graphics and voice acting are decent. However, the puzzles, as explained in previous reviews, are what break the pacing. Finding the possum kids was a snoozefest in itself, and guiding Ted through the river was a hellish ♥♥♥♥ing nightmare. I swear to God if it wasn't for a guide for a game aimed at 7-11 year olds, I would have been stuck there for HOURS. Yes, there are some crashing issues and bugs, but that did not stop me from enjoying this gem. Recommended for fans of the comics? Yes. Recommended for fans of the Telltale games? Well...that's all up to you.

Just for childs.
Prety adventure game, with good sense of humor and funny characters.
Controls are a tad messy and, the game seems out-to-dated.
Not bad, anyway.

Okay, I've just finished this game like I do for all of my reviews and here's what I think.
Eh...
Bone: Out From Boneville plays well for it's time and I think Telltale, from that time, did a wonderful homage to the Bone books. The game starts and ends fairly strong and the whole game is consistent with the book, a little too well. One major issue is that the entire game focuses on Fone Bone and while that's all well and good, the book took time to show the development with the other characters as well, and although you do get to spend some playing time playing as Phony Bone (sorry, I lied earlier), It never felt as strong as it could have been.
Is this a good game? Only if you've read and really enjoied the Bone books, like I did. Otherwise, it isn't a game, it's an interactive storybook that's done better than most of the interactive storybooks from my childhood (even green eggs and ham but then again, green eggs and ham didn't have rat creatures chasing after you).
It's good, but not fantastic, the voice actors threw me off and the character models aren't the best. Not to mention the end wasn't as strong as it could have been since (spoilers) we had no introduction to the mysterious figure, which I might add was introduced in the book in a segmanet that was touched on in the book. That left the ending very confusing as if we were missing a section of the story, which we were.
Anyway, I give this "game" a 6/10 if you love the bone books
5/10 if you liked them
and a 4/10 if you're unfremilar.
As a remind, this is my own oppionon, I could be compleatly wrong. But I feel that if TellTale ever made a remake, It would be tons better than this game was.
