The Adventures of Tintin: The Game by Ubisoft for Wii Video Game Review

We are definitely a gamer family. My husband has played games since he was in elementary school and I would play as a kid when my brother would let my sister or I have a turn! As a young adult without kids my husband and I would spend hours playing video games together. Its a low cost way to have fun at home. My son is now a gamer too! Even at 2 years old he loves to play. He says Games and Play when he would like me to turn on the Wii. Yes I know some parents do not allow kids to play but its family fun time in my home. On days when its cold and rainy we will play even for a few hours.

One game that I have been wanting to try is The Adventures of Tintin. We have not seen the movie yet but from all the trailers for the game and movie I have seen I thought this would be a great game. This game was developer with the creators of the movie and it shows! The graphics and colorful game play are great. Right from the start this game was action packed. We started out in a plane that was heading through a storm. I was steering the plane when my son jumped up and grabbed the controller. He said to me "cool" lol.

 After the game got going we found ourselves on a very bright and detailed street at a Farmers Market. And to my sons sons delight we were a dog! This made him beyond excited since he adores dogs. I had to help him push the buttons to make the dog find the trail to follow but he happily sat on my lap and we played together. I had a ton of fun playing this game and I must admit when he went to sleep for a nap I kept playing! I find the game to be adventurous and easy game play Its a mystery puzzle sort of game that you can enjoy without the dedication to a game like some titles out there. I think it is a game a kid can enjoy without getting stressed about about. You can also play along with your kids in co-op play. What kid would not think it was so cool if you joined in the fun with them. Plus you can go see the movie together and feel like you are more apart of it having played the game.

Here is the game description from the Ubisoft Website:

In The Adventures of Tintin: The Game, play as Tintin, the intrepid reporter and hero of the action-packed movie directed and produced by acclaimed director Steven Spielberg and executive producer Peter Jackson. Developed in close collaboration with them, the video game offers an authentic immersion into the movie’s enchanting environments and characters.
Players will experience non-stop action and adventure as they investigate the mystery of a lifetime, hunting for precious scrolls from the pirate golden age that may lead them to one of the greatest sunken treasures. But the quest won’t be easy. 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 and reveal the truth behind the Secret of the Unicorn ship.

*I was not paid for our review. The opinions are 100% mine and may vary from others. I was provided the game in this post to review for free from the PR company that represents them.
