aka: Lemony Snicket: Una Serie di Sfortunati Eventi, Les Desastreuses Aventures des Orphelins Baudelaire d'apres Lemony Snicket, Una Serie de Catastróficas Desdichas de Lemony Snicket, Лемони Сникет: 33 несчастья
Moby ID: 141076


The Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, have received a large inheritance, but have also been left in the care of their uncle, Count Olaf. Olaf doesn't care much for children but he sure cares about their inheritance. After learning of Olaf's plans to get rid of the kids, the children have to make their escape before some unfortunate events happen to them.

Players take control of Klaus, Violet, and Sunny as they fight through Olaf's cohorts during their escape. A gameplay element is the creation of gadgets which are put together by items the children find lying around. These gadgets include a smasher, lobber, lever yanker, and sprayer.

Good, but it could've been a lot better.

The Good
The graphics, as well as the fact that this is based on the best-selling books by Lemony Snicket. Voice acting is also spot-on, with some of the actors reprising their roles in the game, although they had to hire different actors for some of the characters, like Tim Curry as Mr. Snicket himself.

The Bad
Gameplay. It's a little flawed and uninspired to be honest, as it's mostly a scavenger hunt of sorts, i.e. find three or more parts and then have Violet build them, with some third-person shooter and puzzle elements, although it can leave a kid entertained for a few hours. If only that they made it a little longer, and added free-roaming elements to it.

The Bottom Line
For the most part, the game is in the form of a third-person shooter. Not with guns and gangsters, but with a trio of shrewd and intelligent kids who lost their parents in a mysterious fire, and a myriad of odd-yet-interesting weapons and gadgets, like a lock pick, an improvised launcher that fires rotten eggs (which I describe as a kid's version of the AA-12 shotgun), and a couple of other things.

The game's decent overall, but unless if you're a die-hard fan of A Series of Unfortunate Events, don't expect anything too epic or innovative with this game, being a typical movie tie-in. Even Mr. Snicket himself is telling you not to play it, although you may, in fact, be able to still enjoy the game for a while.

The Windows version of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events can be modified to some extent using UnrealEd, thus allowing texture/clothing hacks for the game.
