The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
2 September 2013
Summary: Ah yes, the movie games. For every G-Force there is a Thor . For every Rango you have a Megamind: Ultimate Showdown , and for every Captain America a James Cameron's Avatar: The Game . Like that last one, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is another Ubisoft licensed game based, for the most part, on the new Spielberg movie. But does it manage to offer a better time for players this time around?
Excerpt: The movie is getting solid reviews and the box office take is impressive, but what about the video game? Developers have been producing some good-quality games based on films this generation; just look at High Moon Studios (
Conclusion: If you're not a fan of the fiction, though, or you don't have younger children who might appreciate simplicity, there's little incentive to play The Adventures of Tintin. It's boring. You can sit back and coast through it without even thinking, and the somewhat interesting story is little compensation. Repetitive levels and overly simple puzzles just add to the game's troubles.
Pros: Solid voice acting, Good animation that captures the Tintin vibe.
Cons: Repetitive missions, Platforming lacks challenge, Puzzles are too easy to solve, Erratic motion controls.
The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn The Game Review
1 November 2011
Excerpt: I'm not sure why I expected something good to come from Ubisoft's The Adventures of Tintin, the tie-in game based on the Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson CGI movie. Maybe it's that the film's trailers look gorgeous, or that the footage I've seen of the game suggested it'd be a stylish platformer. It certainly does look stylish at points, but the game is sadly no different to the majority of movie-licensed titles released every year.
The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn

Conclusion: TinTin may be basic and one of the easiest games I’ve played in some years, but it's certainly a cracker of a game for children and gives them something to get their teeth into with its cute visuals. That doesn’t stop it being a little too basic for older veterans and cannot stand up to the quality of games such as Toy Story 3 or Cars 2 for film based tie-ins. It’s a fair effort though and is worthy of a rental.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Game Review (PS3/360)
8 January 2012
Excerpt: You’ll most likely know that Tintin is coming to the big screens in a motion capture blockbuster with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson on board. Well, as you’re probably aware, for most big films there’s a usually disappointing game tie-in, and Tintin is no different – though it’s not entirely disappointing. You see, The Adventures of Tintin, at its core, is a delightfully simple 2.5D sidescrolling platformer.
Pros: Platforming sections, whilst simple, are enjoyable., The secondary, co-op mode is definitely good., Some of the challenges are fun.
Cons: Looks shockingly bad., Feels like a downloadable game., The story skips from here to there without transitions and feels broken., Can get very repetitive., Third person sections are generally rubbish.
