I really like this game, it's not a blockbuster title and a few issues with game length are a bit of a concern. It is fun though, a lot of fun. I can't help wondering what the team that brought Beyond Good & Evil to the table, could do if given free reign outside of a movie based story. Rather like Rocksteady were able to do with both Batman titles - I personally would love to see a Herge's inspired Tintin game free of those shackles and hopefully Ubisoft might consider looking in that direction at some point. All in all though, grab this one if you're a Tintin fan. It's also one for the kids.
With its pretty graphics inspired by both the film and the comic, exceptionally accessible action, and healthy range of play modes, The Adventures of Tintin is a cut above most movie-licensed games. Levels move along at a pleasant, movie-like pace and offer little in the way of any momentum-killing obstacles, and the controls are so simple that even video game rookies should be able to get the hang of things in minutes. Experienced players may find the action and puzzles a little too rudimentary for their liking, and it lacks the emotional resonance of a movie or book, but casual gaming fans of the Tintin universe should be well served.
Ubisoft Montpellier slaagt erin om Kuifje zonder veel kleerscheuren over de vele valstrikken van de licentiegame te leiden. Een weinig uitdagende maar gevarieerde game voor Kuifje- en platformfans.
The Adventures of Tintin is very much a product created to sell more units and promote the film but its co-op side manages to shine. If you can forget about the poor vehicle sections or you just want a fun co-op experience with your kid, you could fare a lot worse than Tintin.
Tim und Struppi machen auch in spielerischer Form keine schlechte Figur. Man erlebt in dem primär als 2D-Plattformer nacherzählten Kinoabenteuer zwar nichts Außergewöhnliches, wird aber solide unterhalten. Es wird geklettert, gehüpft, geknobelt und gekämpft, während sporadische Flug-, Fecht- oder Taucheinlagen für Abwechslung sorgen. Die leider recht knappe Spielzeit von drei bis vier Stunden wird durch gelungene Bonuslevels mit Sammelreizen, die auch kooperativ spielbar sind, wieder wettgemacht - zumindest auf PC und Konsole. 3DS-Spieler müssen sich hingegen nicht nur mit deutlich abgespeckten Spielinhalten zufrieden geben, sondern auch bei Übersicht und Präsentation merkliche Abstriche machen. 3D gibt's auch auf PC und PS3, während die eingeschränkte MotionPlus-, Move- bzw. Kinect-Unterstützung eher Nach- als Vorteile bringt.
Given past experience, you might be forgiven for imagining this would be better titled The Adventures of Tintin: The Curse of the Licensed Game, but Ubisoft Montpellier have dodged that particular bullet with some style. While perhaps not a game for the ages, The Secret of the Unicorn is charming, generous and fun, and in that respect captures the spirit of the character perfectly.
As far as movie-based games, The Adventures of Tintin: The Game for the Xbox 360 is not the worst on the market, but it certainly is not the best either. Fans of the soon-to-be released movie should enjoy the platforming sequences in the game. The sense of adventure and ease of controls shines during these segments. Yet when the game deviates from being a platformer, The Adventures of Tintin begins to suffer. Mature gamers in general will most likely want to steer clear from The Adventures of Tintin but fans of the comic series may find some redeeming qualities and should give it a look indeed.
Tintin only has itself to blame for its shortcomings: for every exciting moment there’s a turgid interlude which drags the overall experience down. While these distractions are more tedious bore than hair-pulling aggravation there’s no doubt their omission would’ve made for a tighter and ultimately better game. By shoe-horning variety into the game it loses its focus, which combined with silly game design decisions – the dogfights really should’ve been left on the drawing board – and a handful of game-breaking bugs – Tintin crashed on more than one occasion during review – it’s hard to recommend this to anyone other than diehard fans of both the comics and the movie.
Hardcore fans may enjoy The Adventures of Tintin while it lasts but unfortunately that will not be very long, and the time never feels overly well spent either. The main game is shockingly short but at least that will free you up to go and play something with a little more depth and entertainment.
If you're not a fan of the fiction, though, or you don't have younger children who might appreciate simplicity, there's little incentive to play The Adventures of Tintin. It's boring. You can sit back and coast through it without even thinking, and the somewhat interesting story is little compensation. Repetitive levels, overly simple puzzles, and poor Kinect implementation just add to the game's troubles. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is another game to add to the pile of movie tie-in games that missed that mark, and it's a failed opportunity to do something great with a well-loved character.
Si en soi, Tintin : Le Secret de la Licorne n'est pas un si mauvais jeu, on se demande constamment à qui il se destine. En effet, d'un côté, on le trouvera sans intérêt passé un certain âge tant le tout est redondant et de l'autre, certains passages pourront poser problème à nos chères têtes blondes. De plus, avec certains aspects du gameplay à l'état embryonnaire et une construction reposant sur des mécanismes tournant constamment en boucle, Tintin aura bien du mal à trouver son public malgré quelques bonnes idées et une ambiance bon enfant.
