Tin Tin Returns!
 
Cartoon classic reporter returns as an action adventure hero (should have been action rpg) for multi platform.Looks like game starts with both secret of unicorn and golden crab mixture,and expect to see lots of mixed sequences from other books.
Will release with PJ & Spielberg's feature movie at Xmas.
Prepare to meet only Belgic action hero reporter of the century :D

Yeah, looked great at E3. Can't wait to see the movie. :)

I agree that the game looks good. Most licensed games are, of course, crap. But I'm actually more interested in the game than the movie. Leave it to Ubisoft.

I have all the books.

One of the highlights of E3 for me. I love Tintin and this just looks like the perfect video game adaptation of it. Hopefully both this and the movie turn out well.

I'm a bit wary myself. Tintin has action, sure, but to me it's still much more about the adventure and I fear that too much action will very much take away from the atmosphere.

I'm waiting interestedly, but reservedly :P

Actually its called Action/Adventure. Nothing wrong with it. Shouldn't be strictly adventure, especially when the first thing people think about tintin is the indiana jones style adventure...which doesn't mean waiting around for things to happen.

I'm more worried about attempts to update Tin Tin. He's full of childish wonder to the exclusion of all else (including political correctness).

I know of a couple of attempts to modernise and update him that failed (thankfully).

I like that he chases adventure, not boys or girls.

Yes, but action/adventure is very often a synonym for a two-click fighting system with a bit of story in the background :P

That shouldn't be said in these forums since it was bad enough people poo poo the action sequences in LA Noire. lol

Looks like pure action to me, not much adventure there. Though I don't suppose they would include in the trailer a sequence of combining objects in the inventory if that was in the game.

Well for most games defined as action/adventure. Simple crate puzzles or use one object on another would suffice for the genre. Maybe not Adventure though, but def Action/Adventure.

Also, pure action would mean he's shooting everyone. :P

Didn't remember Tintin shooting around with pistols much in the comics. Didn't he rather opt for peaceful solutions?
Or do I remember incorrectly?

Trying to figure out if he used a pistol too....but I do recall quite a bit of gunplay a couple of times in the series.

Holding bad guys at gunpoint is a staple for Tin Tin, he does it in nearly every adventure. He was just terrible at it. I don't remember him ever killing anyone with a gun, usually he gets distracted and they get away. As for peaceful, no. He's quite good at fisticuffs.

Indiana Jones for kids pretty much....only way I can explain it. :)

On the contrary Jones (Lucas&Spielberg) heavily inspired by Tintin, consider Tintin 50 years older.

perfect. :)

Origami 06-20-2011 11:58 AM

I own all the books too. For all the people worried about TinTin shooting people, maybe we can aim at the tires. ;)
Also, anyone noticed the Uncharted 3 plagiarism? =P
Looking forward to play this.

Crunchy in milk 06-20-2011 10:45 PM

I wonder if we'll get to hunt elephants for their ivory tusks like early Tin Tin (in the Congo).
