While this game isn't exactly going to be topping any 'greatest games of all time' lists, it's still worthwhile picking up for some good old fashioned platforming fun. The game actually does a good job with presentation, the levels are generally quite colourful and nice to look at, the 3D parts still look fairly decent, and the voice acting isn't all that bad either.
In terms of gameplay, the movement, combat and controls are all very simple, but that's all this type of game needs. The game isn't very long or difficult, meaning you can play through quite casually with not much concentraion needed. The only downside I found with this game is at times the camera angle in 3D sequences was a bit annoying.
To wrap up, if you want a fun platformer then this is ideal, just don't expect to be coming back to replay it much.
Great Fun!Plasros | June 18, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
This is a fun game, my 4-year old has been enjoying it for months. The critics all seem to point out that it is too easy, but for kids it is challenging enough. After he finished the story mode my son really got into the multiplayer mode, and unlocking new characters and costumes is keeping him engaged with the game.
So while for adults there might not be enough of a challenge, it is a great game for kids, and also a good introduction for them into the Tintin universe.

The bulk of the game is made up of side scrolling platform sections and surprisingly enough these reminded me of the classic Prince of Persia games. Based on the movie, which in turn is a mix of two Tintin books, you get to explore locations like Marlinspike Hall, The Karaboudjan (a ship,) Bagghar and Brittany. The platforming action is rather straightforward and level progression pretty linear. There are some hidden treasure chests scattered about for you to find and the occasional simple puzzle but overall things are very easy. This is clearly a game that is aimed at younger fans but the older ones will have fun too.
Overall, I had a lot of fun playing through this game and I think that it is a pretty good movie adaptation. Many critics have panned this game for being too short and easy so I guess it is easy to become spoiled by all the triple-A blockbusters to the point where you are too jaded to enjoy a hidden gem like this one. This is a great game to sit down and play with your young ones as all alcohol references have been removed and the violence is very slapstick. Unless you cannot stand the character or hated the movie, there is no reason not to try this game. The 3D sections might be a bit hit or miss but the platforming sections more than make up for it. As a Tintin fan, it has even made me go dig out all the old books to read again, which must be worth something!
