The Adventures of TinTin The Game
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: The Adventures of TinTin The Game is on the Wii, Personal Computer, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Wii version of this movie based game for this review. The Adventures of TinTin The Game is an interesting blend of gaming styles. Part of the time we play a dog character, and other parts we play a human character. Ubisoft blended this together masterfully well.
Summary: Sideways scrolling platform games aren’t as popular as they used to be. To maintain interest in a genre, developers need to come up with unique twists that will keep gamers coming back for more. Failing that, a good movie tie-in never hurts. Fortunately, GameLoft has managed to do both with The Adventures of Tintin.
Summary: Tintin, the Belgium reporter-come-adventurer, has been regularly refreshed in popular culture over the years; a case in point being the computer-enhanced “The Adventures of Tintin” movie. We recently reviewed the Java based game tie-in. However, even that game has had a refresh with this HD version. Do 3D graphics and a sumptuous John Williams soundtrack add to the original formula?
Excerpt: The Adventures of Tintin, Gameloft’s latest and possibly best movie tie-in game to date, is now available from the app store. Providing a solid story, Pixar-style graphic quality, and a nice variety of gameplay mechanics, Tintin is an engaging experience that raises the bar for all others. The Adventures of Tintin Pros: Gorgeous graphics worthy of comparison to Pixar films Nice voice wo... more .
Pros: Gorgeous graphics worthy of comparison to Pixar films, Nice voice work and audio that heightens the experience, Easy-to-use tap and swipe controls, Plenty of puzzles and a variety of gaming elements to keep the experience fresh, Strong story and engaging gameplay are fun for all gamers
Cons: Some control quirks and responsiveness issues, Occasional crashing, Limited replay value
Excerpt: As a rule, it isn’t bad to kick off a game by playing a dog, but it all depends on what the dog’s doing. The Adventures Of Tintin , a game based on the Steven Spielberg /Peter Jackson movie version of Hergé’s classic comic series , opens with players in the role of Tintin’s fox terrier Snowy rather than the eponymous cowlick-rocking Belgian reporter. Snowy has had some adventures over the last 82 years of Tintin ; controlling him could be cool. Not here.
Simple movie game with likable hero, cartoonish violence.

Summary: Parents need to know that The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn –- The Game is a simple action/adventure game that follows the plot of the film of the same name . Players will get a good feel for the tale’s classic characters, particularly the noble and admirable teenage reporter Tintin, while solving some simple contextual puzzles and beating up bad guys who stand in their way.
Excerpt: Let’s just skip to the end: Tintin is a mostly 2-D platformer with a healthy dose of fisticuffs. Now, this was the bit that really got my attention: I always thought of Tintin as a tenacious investigator, uncovering trickery and crime and solving mysteries. I never had him down as a fist-slogging super-hooligan – that was always Asterix’s area. But I did a bit of research after playing the game and – surprise! Tintin was actually quite a bruiser!
Pros: Well-crafted, Pretty good characters, Never annoying
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn – review
17 January 2012
Excerpt: First things first: you can play as Captain Haddock. For fans, this already makes The Adventures of Tintin a game of the year contender. Happily, it's also a cut above the average movie tie-in. This isn't immediately apparent from the story mode, which intersperses platforming sequences with a range of variably successful mini- games – waggling a cutlass to repel pirates as an ancestral Haddock is a lark; the aquaplane sequences less so.
Summary: It’s probably a bit clichéd to talk about video games based on movies in the intro to a review about a video game based on a movie but they are genuinely so terrible it needs bringing up every time. Rushed out of the door with little care or attention given to them as, say, your Fallouts or your indie games, they’re guaranteed to be bad. Rather than investing time, it’s all about the pay check here.
Pros: Co-op mode is a lot of fun, Platforming is surprisingly enjoyable, Cameos from Tintin characters!!
Cons: Vehicle sections are pretty bad, More repetitive than a broken record, More effort put in to co-op than anywhere else
