Life as the Doctor's Companion
Having eagerly awaited the opportunity to play this game since it came out in the UK, it was with glee that I discovered that it was now available overseas.
I had high expectations of Attack of the Graske, knowing that it was made with the production standards of the television show. And, boy, did it live up to its promise. I may be a mature university student, but even I couldn't help grinning and giggling as the Doctor led me through puzzles and challenges, which given the show's young demographic, were actually quite hard.
The overall playfulness was what drew me in. The breaking of the fourth wall is something I always love, especially when coupled with jokes that could only be used in this context. And of course I have to mention the brilliant David Tennant. He had just the right mix of protector and nutter going on here to completely draw you in. He made you feel like you were actually living the life as the Doctor's companion, so much so that I didn't ever want to leave the TARDIS.
Attack of the Graske captures the joy that travelling with the Doctor brings, and it's intoxicating stuff. Playing this after Doomsday had aired really got to me, as I now knew what Rose had lost. But luckily for me, I'm able to play again and again.
