Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

Playstation Illustrated
24 November 2005
  • Excerpt: “If you are interested in casting magic spells, or saving the Earth from alien invasion, you might as well stop right now. You see, the video game you are about to play is extremely unpleasant. It does not have a happy beginning, middle and, if a happy ending is important to you, you would certainly be better off with something else.” Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events looks good, but is nothing spectacular.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: The most unfortunate thing about Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is that it was developed in the first place. Activision released in the fall of 2004 a game for one of the least appealing movie properties, a game with a more depressing storyline than 30 minutes of the Evening News - or even worse, MTV. This is one children’s game that should have a ‘keep out of reach of children’ label on it.

  • Conclusion: Ho-hum graphics, weak sound and spotty controls don't do justice to a movie that strives to set itself apart from the wealth of cutesy kids movies.

  • Conclusion: My main point of confusion with this game is wondering who this game is aimed at. Younger players will probably get the most out of the game but may find some parts too tricky. However the monotonous gameplay is too dull and repetitive to engage older more experienced players.
  • Pros: Tim Curry is great., Keeps darkly comic mood of the books well.
  • Cons: Lack of innovation., Hazy audience focus, although probably aimed at a younger audience., Another run of the mill ‘game of the movie’.
