  • Summary: Players will experience non-stop action and adventure as they investigate the mystery of a lifetime that may lead them to one of the greatest sunken treasures. But the quest won’t be easy and players will need to join forces with the quick-witted dog Snowy and the grumpy Captain Haddock to beat greedy art collectors, kooky arms dealers, and other crooks to reveal the truth behind the Secret of the Unicorn ship.

    Ubisoft has done the unexpected, delivering an extremely solid movie tie-in with The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. This solid platform adventure on Nintendo 3DS proves to be great fun throughout, despite its brevity, with pleasing extras and a great two-player race element.

    As a game, The Secret of the Unicorn sports a decent campaign and a great "secondary" mode; as a tie-in, it really captures the spirit of both the movie and the comics: the result is a good fix for the Tintin fans.

    The Adventures of Tintin – The secret of the Unicorn is an average title, with a quite entertaining gameplay but some undeniable flaws, from its short main story to the excessive easiness. Still it's recommendable, providing a funny experience.

    Tintin is a tie-in platform that follows the adventures of the French journalist. The formula sits in a dangerous middle: platforming is complex even for the more experienced players, but the enemies don't have a well crafted AI, resulting in a mixed experience, not fully suitable neither for the younger players nor for the hardcore market.

    The Adventures of Tintin is merely the sum of its parts; decent platforming, good music and a sizeable amount of gameplay don't ever quite gel into a satisfying whole. There's potential for a better game in here, but it'll have to wait until the inevitable sequel.

    This 3DS version has the merit of offering more or less the same experience than the HD versions (minus the voice-overs, and a lesser visual prowess); but it also inherits its shortcomings. A repetitive gameplay, very short lifespan, and underwhelming action sequences.

    The game chugs harder than Captain Haddock at a distillery. [Dec 2011, p.75]
