Way better than the first short, rather boring act Out From Boneville with wonky action sequences. I wonder if the very first sentence in this game somehow tries to deal with the first part: "Last one was fun, don't get me wrong, but way too short."

Don't try to exchange the udder for the helmet! It dead-ended the game for me. This is almost a spoiler but I hope it won't make sense to people unless they are in a position to make that mistake.

+ Entertaining story
+ More populated areas (people and objects) and dialogue
+ Smiley Bone
+ References: e.g. Monkey Island

- Buggy: see helmet bug above and transitive object bug below
- No fast-travel
- Inconsistent controls: spacebar to skip lines
- Over-clicking in dialogue
- Sudden end of the series

The game is almost completely controllable by mouse except for skipping of dialogue lines which is done with the spacebar. Why is that not the one of the mouse buttons? There is no other functionality needed while someone is talking.
Skipping may also lead to graphical bugs. You can win small objects in the game that are handed to you while dialogue is running. If you skip at that moment the object movement is not completed and the object hangs in the air. This is somehow amazing because it shows again how integrative the Telltale engine works - still a bug though.
There is a crate you can click which triggers a line from another character.. even when he's not around.

Sometimes the movement of the characters feels very slow, e.g. if you have to make a character do something at the other end of its movement range. I seriously missed some way to fast-travel, e.g. double-click or map-travel.

Similar to the first game there is a lot of intermediate clicking between lines of dialogue even though the thoughts presented follow quite different threads of conversation. I'd have liked the dialogue to unfold a bit more on it's own instead of making me click every two seconds for ten seconds on a clearcut piece of conversation.

From the development in act one and two I'd expect three more acts to follow. Unfortunately it doesn't look like they will be done. Look around I didn't find any announcements from Telltale about the Bones, it's not even in Telltale's games list.
I hear you can get the rest of the Bones' story and see how well the first two acts fit from the Bone comics - the first issue is online available here. By the looks of the covers I'd say 15 of 55 issues have been worked into "Out From Boneville" and "The Great Cow Race". Note the guest artists for the comic series.

Since this game yet qualifies as an entertaining adventure I recommend it but suggest to wait for 50+% sale.

If you read any of the "Bone" books by Jeff Smith, this is the game for you! I enjoyed the second one more than the first because it follows the hilarious "Great Cow Race" plotline.

It's a shame that this series was discontinued but at least we got two great games to play. Besides with the superb animations and voice acting, it could also double as a "Bone" cartoon...

The Great Cow Race offers the same fun than the original game in the series. This a short, cute, and easy adventure game for you and the kids to enjoy. This is Telltale Games, you just can't go wrong.

Bone: The Great Cow Race is the sequel to Bone Out from Boneville and follows on Phone Bone and the gang as theyre being hunted by the Locust yet again but will this sequel top the first one or will you want to skip it ? This time you play as all three cousins instead of the two you played in the first one. The game picks up a little before the first episode ends where we find out how the guys ended up in the city. After escaping from the locust we find out that Grandma Ben's farm house has been destroyed they set onto compete in the Great cow race. While Phone bone tries to impress Thorn. Phoney and Smiley hatched a plan to win the Race for themselfs and take the bet winnings while we find out that the locust are still trying to catch and kill Phone Bone. So how is the sequel ? Overall i liked this more than the first act since i liked the puzzles more in this one cause they were a bit tougher to figure out. The gameplay is still the same as the first one but this time you can switch to witch charecter you want to play on the fly. The script is funny and the game is very fun. But there are a few problems with the game. Its quite short and the biggest turn off for some people im gonna try to avoid spoiling it here but the game ends on a cliffhanger which is never resolved (unless youve read the comic books) Overall this is a very fun adventure game. Definetly get both episodes of Bone cause its really fun. I give Bone: The Great Cow Race a 8/10

Bone: The Great Cow Race is the followup to the Telltale game Bone: Out From Boneville. The game can be played as a stand alone story without any prior knowledge of the Bone comic strip, or the pevious episode, but background knowledge is of course only beneficial. As with the previous iteration, there is alcohol and tobacco use, as well as some cartoonish slapstick humor. There are no bonus features, so the story plays out in a very linear manner. Overall, the story is more humorous than the previous episode, and about double the length as well. If you enjoyed the first episode, you owe it to yourself to try this one too.
