Excerpt: The most unfortunate thing about Lemony SnicketÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s game that should have a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœkeep out of reach of childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ label on it.
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’.
