Entertaining!

This was one of my favorite games from my childhood to play on my Xbox 360. I love story mode, co-op mode, the challenges, and the bonus content. I never got the chance to try out the U-Play feature, so I can’t really say much about that. Like most video games that are based off of movies, the story mode says it’s “the adventure of the film,” but it’s really almost nothing like it! I still love playing the story, though...don’t get me wrong! Also, co-op mode is very bizarre, since it’s all about playing in the Captain’s dreams, but I actually got a lot of fun out of playing that part of the game, too. The challenges are fun if you like racing against time and beating your high score. The bonus content is where you can look back at everything you have won in one place. I recommend it to anyone who loves adventure games with mild violence.

Tintin is Swell

His voice actor in the game is definately not for kids, just look at his Twitter! And Tintin is a vulgar character and there is a lot of inappropriate stuff out there about him

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
