The Adventure of Tintin
Whenever movies become blockbusters, as long as the theme allows it, a video game is bound to follow it, featuring most of the events seen on the silver screen, but with the added interactivity bonus. Such is the case with The Adventures of Tintin, the successful movie directed by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, which quickly got transformed into a fun platformer that enables you to relive the events of Tintin and his friends.
Play as multiple characters and explore fascinating locations
The game at hand may be a platformer, but the gameplay style does change for some levels, as does the perspective. Hence, you are almost never looking at your character from the same angle for too long, especially since the rhythm of the game is quite alert and you are always advancing through the environment, stumbling from room to room.
Your purpose, as in the movie, is to find the truth behind the secret of the Unicorn ship, as well as cause quite a bit of trouble on the way there, by disrupting the operations of wealthy art dealers or various other crooks. In addition, you can also play as many other characters beside Tintin, including his wacky dog Snowy, or the always furious Captain Haddock.
Masterfully crafted environments
Although the title is a basic platformer most of the time, the environments contain a lot of detail, due to the fact that the engine is actually a very potent 3D one. Thus, from the sublime character animation, to the incredible water physics, everything is nicely detailed and more than convincing, whether it's the mansions you break into, or the curious city of Bagghar.
Furthermore, the game can be played in cooperative mode, which means that it is possible to have your friends join you and solve the mysteries together in multiplayer. In case you enjoy competition as well, the challenge mode can be used instead, which provides you with a variety of pretty difficult missions against a more than capable AI opponent.
Go beyond the events from the movie
Even if the game follow the original story, it does go off-script from time to time, by providing you with new challenges and events for you to take part in. Thus, The Adventure of Tintin is a very enjoyable experience, especially if you liked the movie as well.
