The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn Review
10 November 2011
Excerpt: UK REVIEW--Between the staring blankly at a screen for hours in the name of research, energy-drink-fuelled writing marathons to meet deadlines, and the knowledge that your editor can (and will) drop a story on you last thing on a Friday, journalism isn't always the most glamorous of professions. But for intrepid reporter Tintin, it's a far more adventurous pursuit.
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: The Secret Of The Unicorn

Conclusion: The Secret Of The Unicorn is an extremely successful tie-in to what is a controversial film. It’s a slight shame that, whether for reasons of budget or resources, it feels a little truncated (the aforementioned lack of online co-op, and the necessarily limited nature of the single-player mode are the two most notable flaws), but then that just brings forth the tantalising image of how good a Tintin game based purely on Herge’s comics, with no filmic tie-in to consider,...

Excerpt: Whilst there’s plenty of decent film licenses, because of time constraints and such they nevertheless very rarely feel like a labour of love, however, and are usually uninspired copycats of better games. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is one of those rare film licences however where it’s evident that love and attention has been lavished upon it during its development process.

Excerpt: In times past movie tie-ins used to be a tawdry affair, providing more fascination in just how hilariously poor they could be. There were some which were certainly above the mark but in general they were pretty terrible. For those who understand the industry the reasons for this are clear – games development of the larger titles takes time, and when you’re being influenced by a film’s direction, look and feel you automatically add extra pressures.

Excerpt: The latest outing for the 17 year old journalist and his furry pal! Being a childhood fan of Tintin, I was slightly apprehensive when I saw the trailer for the new animated film. I find that there’s always a risk when a TV show or film I loved as a child is re-made or revived that he producers will do a poor job, and not only add a sour note to a dearly loved franchise, but also taint the stories & characters I once loved (Indiana Jones anyone?).
Pros: Great 2D platforming, some varied gameplay elements, co-op and challenge modes add some extra life.
Cons: Some of the 3D sections look & feel out of place, the story feels somewhat weaker than the film’s.
Excerpt: 's big-screen adaptation of the famous ginger-quiffed reporter, off on another fantastic globetrotting adventure. But it is Ubisoft that has taken on the biggest adventure in trying to make a video game based on a movie that isn't a complete shambles.
