back to article The Adventures of Tintin: the Game

Until I was five, my dad worked at Cern and we lived in the Jura Mountains across the France-Switzerland border. At weekends my mum would take us to Jouets Weber, the largest toyshop in Geneva. It stocked a large number of Tintin books, which my mum translated to me at bedtime. The Adventures of Tin Tin Take a hit and throw …

    Tintin

    I bet none of the books spelled his name as two words Tin Tin.

    Pull a bird

    Had to laugh at some of the captions

    'Pull a bird'

    'Swingers Party'

    New non-cola filled keyboard please!

    It looks like the kind of game that is handy for post-drinking casual gaming, when your reflexes are gone and hardcore shooters like MW3 would be too frustrating to play.

    Could be up there with the likes of Mario Kart, Crazy Taxi, some of the 'Lego' series games in that regard.

    Though is it controller playable without having to jump about in a huge living room for the kinect?

      Yes you can play it completely without Kinect.

    Secret Levels?

    This is a fantastic game, probably the best movie tie-in I have ever played. A lot of the slapstick and surrealism of the books is there and playable. Kids love it too. Terrific.

    I have to say the captain's drinking is played down to the point of weirdness; without the alcohol a lot of his more excessive behaviour just appears to be deranged. Funny for those who are in on the joke though.
