Review from 76561197971143071Bien que le jeu soit médiocre, un certain charme en émane. Il est bon de noté que les mécaniques s'avèrent extrêmement frustrante par moment, sans compter les multiples phases avec des QTE qui donne l'impression que le gameplay est tout droit sorti de la fin des années 2000. D'autres passage encore provoque un échec lorsque que vous allez 'trop vite'. Lors de la fuite de l'hôpital psychiatrique, au moment de monter un escalier parce que la voie est bloqué par un infirmier, si vous coupez trop court vers cet escalier, le jeu considère que l'escalier est un cul de sac et vous perdez. Il faut d'abord s'approcher de l'infirmier puis se rendre vers l'escalier. Nombreuse sont les phases de ce genre ou les mécaniques semblent péter. Le jeu est également bloqué à 60 FPS et son optimisation est bancal. Si vous penser arriver à surmonter ces micro-doses de frustration, laissez-vous tenter.
Review from 76561198068279035Mucho gusto
Review from 76561198071216811i requested refund because developer utterly failed to resolve issues-> loaded *blank* screen, shortly after launched. Unfortunately, Patch 1.0.7 didn’t address UNPLAYABLE. However, i can re-purchase it later when bug is fixed.
Review from 76561198195328245The purpose of this is more towards being a message for the devs/publishers on what to improve if they decide to go ahead with a Blue Lotus game. It is not a bad game, but there is a lot of improvements to be made in order to make it a great game. I understand it's AA and may not have the biggest budget, but I thought I'd put it all out there anyway. First of all, you guys did somewhat manage to capture the magic of TinTin, but here are some things that need to change. The main voice actor: Strictly from an objective view, he doesn't make the cut. If you look at Jamie Bell's performance in the TinTin movie you can get an idea of what you should be going for. The voice acting just isn't believable and sounds fake, like he's reading from a script. The voice actor doesn't convince me that TinTin really cares about solving the mystery and he feels disconnected from it. There needs to be more emotion to make it a more immersive experience. The goofiness: While TinTin as a series is supposed to be goofy, it's also supposed to be cool. The books and official movie managed to find a really good balance between these two opposites, however the game falls short. It's way too goofy and hard to take seriously, and I couldn't get as emotionally invested in the story, even though it is a really good story. Rastapopoulos in that final chase scene sounded like the lamest villain ever. He's supposed to be intimidating, with little strokes of goofiness. Better writing and voice acting will fix this. Even the way the characters run just isn't intense enough for a TinTin chase scene. TinTin's character model: The best way to say it is to just be upfront. TinTin's character model looks like a 13 year old boy, and the lack of emotional voice acting doesn't help this either. He's supposed to look a little bit older than the character model depicts him as, especially how he's travelling all over the word, lives on his own etc. It's just not super believable playing as that character model. Also as a side note, Thomson and Thompson look absolutely lifeless. Gameplay: I want to play TinTin games for the story, the gameplay is secondary to me so I'm not going to be as harsh here. But it can't be disregarded, because quality chase scenes really add to the overall experience. During the chase scenes, I'd try and be a little more creative with the quick time actions. Doing the exact same actions, with the exact same buttons (e.g. X for pass-through) gets repetitive, especially how the game gives you so many of these chase scenes. Also the cinematography can be extremely wack during these chase scenes (bad framing and random zoom outs), which can take away from the cinematic feel I believe the game should have. As for the puzzles, maybe make them a little bit harder as well. The collectables were a nice touch. TinTin's collectable where he takes photos feels a part of the story and added to the immersion, like it made sense to collect them. To finish off, this is not a negative review, I did like the game but that's definitely because I grew up on TinTin books and have that bias. But if you're going to get the license to such an iconic IP you can't afford to fall short. For someone playing this game without my bias, they may not like the game as much as I did.
Review from 76561198279456676Il gioco è carino.. il problema sono i bugs dopo 1 anno e mezzo dall'uscita. Per esempio ora sono fermo in un punto dove devo spostare degli obelischi. e dopo un certo tempo non mi permette di selezionarli e aggiustarli e sono costretto a ricominciare.l uscendo dal gioco. Peccato!!!!!!
Review from 76561198171041630depuis les patches, le jeu plante moins souvent. Par contre c'est injouable sans manette et avoir dû faire les frais d'une manette pour pouvoir jouer m'énerve particulièrement surtout que c'est indiqué nulle part que ce jeu ne peux se jouer correctement qu'avec une manette. Ce problème aurait pus être résolu facilement en autorisant la modification des touches par défaut ce qui est impossible graphiquement le monde de tintin est bien rendu et le jeu lui-mème est assez sympa et immersif ce qui me fait modifier ma précédente évaluation
Review from 76561199526229791The best Tintin game ever.
Review from 76561198869498314The game when working is so nice and true to the original TinTin spirit. But have seen the Fatal Error message too often. And now half way through the game after one last Fatal Error, the game is stuck at a black loading screen on startup. Restarted PC, killed and restarted the game, nothing seems to work. It's stuck and this is really frustrating.
Review from 76561197987492434Retour en enfance avec de magnifiques graphismes, bemol la gestion de la caméra, merci pour les sauvegardes vivement un autre épisode :)
Review from 76561199033386756希望更新个跳过的功能,不然每次都得看很长时间过场动画。 还有,第一章狗狗饼干的统计数据有误,希望修复。
Review from 76561198020294558Me gustaron más sus anteriores juegos vertigo y blacksad. Lo mejor del juego son las cinemáticas que están a un alto nivel pero a nivel jugable no está a la altura. Con los problemas que tiene en el apartado técnico como estar capado a 60fps gran error en un juego de pc en 2024 y con unas micro paradas constantes de imagen,falta de optimización y pulido de rendimiento. Además cuando giras la cámara con el mando muchas veces no responde tarda en girar. Es un juego que se disfruta por momentos pero que hay demasiadas cosas que no funcionan y lastran la experiencia. Me encantan los juegos de Pendulo pero esta vez es un paso atrás, les animo para el próximo juego. Para mi es un aprobado justo 5 / 10 pero le doy negativo por estos problemas técnicos que no tienen que ocurrir.
Review from 76561197975419754Vu le nombre de commentaires faisant état de bugs, j'ai attendu la MAJ 1.07 d'avril pour me lancer dans l'aventure. Après 5h de jeu, aucun bug à déplorer. C'est très plaisant. Juste pas compris pourquoi Tintin n'a que 15 ans.
Review from 76561198796417592Immer wieder frustrierende Minigames mit wenigen Checkpoints. Spiel bleibt immer wieder hängen und hat leider ausreichend Bugs welche das Spielvergnügen massiv schmälern.
Review from 76561199049705851juego de puzles; sencillo; para pasar un rato tranquilo
Review from 76561198447863127不错,就是解谜解得脑壳疼。。。
Review from 76561199545051737I have paid for the game Tintin Cigars of the Pharaoh and have the game installed but when ever I try to open and play the game, the sound comes up like I get to hear the starting sound but the screen goes blank and even after waiting for several minutes it doesn't start at all.
Review from 76561199042030688Delightful but PC version is very buggy the second half of the game. Runs smoothly at first but takes a turn for the worse.
Review from 76561198286220321No recomiendo el juego por que las mecanicas con milu son absurdas y los personajes algunos no tienen ningun sentido es un juego para niños pero no para adultos.
Review from 765611990902617121,游戏并不是那种像神海一样的冒险游戏,貌似制作组的重心放在了解密上面,但解密做的也不是很好,加之极其简单的QTE,我感觉自己在玩宝宝巴士,难度很低,关卡设计也不是很好。 2,本来买这个游戏就是小时候很喜欢丁丁历险记这系列书,但实际游玩后感觉制作组删了很多原著剧情,又在许多原著中一笔带过的地方加了很多莫名其妙的剧情,显得十分别扭和拖沓,使这部作品的精彩程度大打折扣。 3,而且!!!我在法老陵墓的时候有一个利用光的反射的解密。白雪卡BUG卡在镜子底座里出不来,镜子也拉不动,只好读档。然后他他他直接给我读回了船上,我:?????? 4,本作画面不算出色,但也不难看。(丁丁的建模有点难崩) 只能说本作是一款并不出色的改编作品,甚至可以说是十分拉跨,如果是跟我一样很喜欢丁丁这一系列书的可以买(千万别抱太大希望),如果是路人,emm,十分有十二分的不推荐
Review from 76561198150247341Worked for me up until the December update. Since then, the circle on the bottom right of the loading screen, gets to about half way until I get fatal error crash.
Review from 76561197964340849– "¡Coño, Pablo! How can we make from the story a game worth hours of playing?" – "Trust me bro, I designed that level in Duke Nukem Forever where you had to bounce from burger to burger in a flooded kitchen, so I know my job. Take the original comic. You see how Tintin solves his problems in two strips for minor inconveniences? Well, there is ALWAYS a way to lengthen things. Think about the most convoluted way to get to the result. Then for each step of this convoluted way, think about an even more convoluted way to design each stage of the puzzle." – "What about the most interesting parts, the action, the exploration, all of that?" – "Simple cutscenes will do the trick." – "Hey, pendejos, time to ship the game and to work on the Blue Lotus, you slackers!" – "Uh, yeah, señor Microïds."
Review from 76561199234976740Excellent jeu!! J’espère qu'il y aura une suite!!
Review from 76561199441557010I love Tintin more than anything, it's the most nostalgic character and animation ever for me. But i can't deny the bugs in the whole game that makes me quit the game and relaunch it to be fixed and it's really annoying. The fact that the achievements take days to pop up after i earned them is hilarious. Hope my thumbs down review make the game actually work. I will definitely change my review after the bugs are fixed but for now it's 3/10.
Review from 76561199014872155horribly glitchy. could not get off the ship. everything kept turning invisible or i would just die. 3/10. i hope they fix the bugs
Review from 76561198291681761Solid take on the classic yarn spun by Herge. Hope this brings a new generation to the Tintin series.
Review from 76561198218914295纯傻逼游戏,编剧这么喜欢让人当狗,他怎么自己不去当
Review from 76561198422676924Les graphisùes sont zxcellents; mais les courses poursuites sont difficiles.
Review from 76561198052874647great fun to play! im a huge tintin ffan for bout 40years now... :D
Review from 76561198015140861I liked it. The crashes are a bit annoying, there are a couple visual bugs and it feels a bit unpolished. Still it was very enjoyable.
Review from 76561197978655870Before buying this game, check out all the comments about bugs and crashes. Yesterday, I spent 11 minutes playing it when it crashed with a 'Fatal Error'. My set up is all updated and capable of running the game. Am very disappointed and annoyed. Hope I will be reimbursed - which is not the point! There should be a way for Steam to ensure that the company's product is playable, instead of having the customer pay and find out.
Review from 765611980976645855/10
Review from 76561198129207139I do not understand the complaints. The game is working fine, the puzzles are fine, the story is fun, Snowy is adorable.
Review from 76561198450247769THE GAME IS UNPLAYABLE! it needs an update badly. UE4 Fatal Error every step of the way.. unplayable!
Review from 76561198039612577This is a game that I've been waiting for the right time to buy since its launch, and I can tell that the time hasn't come yet :/ I had no bugs nor crashes, but the issue for me was the resolution. It doesn't work in 4K at all; instead, for some reason the game forces a weird 1556 x 884 resolution, that happens to crop the edges of the screen, and nothing can change that. I tried selecting the resolution through Steam properties and even altering the settings file, but the program ignores any changes made. And then we end up playing with very ugly and full of aliasing graphics. As the game's visual style seems to be one of its few strong points, this ends up becoming a bigger problem than it normally would be. From what little I've played, the gameplay consists of A LOT of QTEs and some extremely boring stealth missions with Snowy. I don't believe that very drastic changes will happen to make the game more fun, but I at least hope that the devs fix the game's basic problems so that I can consider buying it again.
Review from 76561199539802076Bonjour, Votre jeu est truffer de bug ,( je suis en colère) à 40€ le jeu, je me suis fait arnaquer , c'est bien dommage car j'aime bien l'univers de tintin. Je ne compte pas le fatal Error au bout de 5 minute de jeu . Je reste bloquer sur un bug du coup je n'est même pas pue finir votre jeu. Pour ma pars je ne recommande pas de recommander d'acheter ce jeu. Cordialement, un homme en colère.
Review from 76561197985218916Es hätte sehr gut werden können... stattdessen "fatal error". Eine tolle Story, interessante Charaktere und viel Humor werden überschattet von BUGs und anderen technischen Unsauberheiten. Schade!
Review from 76561198401727479好玩,想象力丰富极了
Review from 76561198038876067Bonne adaptation, respectueuse de la bd
Review from 76561198009387064Je peux recommander par ses beau graphisme enfantin. Je regrette le mode furtif beaucoup trop et un peu grotesque dans certains passages. Aussi beaucoup de bugs et point de sauvegarde pas au top. On reste dans les aventures de tintin.
Review from 76561199220498406un jeu qui est loin des attentes du monde du jeu vidéo d'aujourd'hui. Malgré de nombreux beugs présents qui peuvent entraver la progression fluide dans le jeu, je considère que c'est une très bonne adaptation de l'oeuvre d'origine, les énigmes sont pertinentes et ne sont n'y trop compliquées ni trop simples. La bande son et le doublage sont aux rendez-vous, je me suis retrouvé en enfance à redécouvrir cette opus de la bande déssinée d'Herge. j'espère sincèrement que si il y a une suite, le studio prendra en compte les défauts de cet opus pour s'améliorer.
Review from 76561198190732467Bom o game segue a historia do charutos do farão , pra quem assistiu ou leu os quadrinhos , tem bastante cena do game fiel a historia original , e ai que entra o problema do game , como as historias são curtas o game adicionou partes para prolongar a historia e ai que começa o erro vou deixar alguns pontos que me incomodaram . Pontos negativos -Excesso de quick time events -bugs de áudio -mal otimizado pode ter pc da naza que roda de forma ruim -forçar o jogador a controlar milu , chega ser chato algumas partes devido os inimigos te verem facilmente -jogo crashar , comigo foram 3 vezes . Pontos positivos - Graficamente o jogo tem sua arte bem bonita -puzzles são legais e coerentes -trilha sonora original da abertura te faz vibrar com a cena o jogo realmente vale em uma promoção ou igual eu que gosta do tintim e seu mundo , estão lançando atualizações e o jogo vem melhorando , depois vou zerar novamente e acompanhar como ficou o game , pra zerar leva 7 a 8 horas , mas se rushar acaba em 4 horas , então essas são as minhas considerações espero ajudar quem esta com duvidas .
Review from 76561199249274467This game is not playable to much bugs still in it. it's too bad i love Tintin :-(
Review from 76561198320636612go for it
Review from 76561199198779058Fun game, followed the comic plot quite well and added extra details that are cool. i see a lot of people saying it is buggy but not for me. I think they fixed it
Review from 76561198271033629作为一个小时候看了无数遍丁丁历险记漫画的玩家,真的觉得这个游戏很一言难尽。 画面质量还算可以,毕竟原作漫画,感觉也比较符合,很动漫的感觉。 剧情也过得去,毕竟漫画一本也没多少东西,只能靠厂家编。 但是游戏性是真的不行,动画不能跳过,部分解密环节还行(有些真的很难找,还没有什么明显提示),但追逐战是真的拉高血压,每次都要来无数遍,真的就是为了拉游戏时长,还有奇奇怪怪的按键挑战。收集要素也莫名其妙,感觉纯是为了收集而收集(说你呢骨头饼干)。 原价100+不算贵,但不是ip死忠粉真的没必要原价(甚至没必要买)。总结的话,其实看看漫画就好了,这东西除非打折白送,不然别买,辣鸡游戏。
Review from 76561198013251469No puedo ni cambiar la resolución del juego. Un verdadero asco. Hasta que no lo mejoren, no voy a cambiar mi valoración.
Review from 76561199606363186is the new patches autopatched when launching the game?
Review from 76561199566467951Il y a une grande promesse concernant ce jeu ne serais-ce qu'à cause de ses graphismes qui sont très beaux, ainsi qu'un suivi réel de la BD. Mais on déchante par le manque d’interactions entre les personnages, et surtout les poursuites sans intérêts qui nous mettent à rude épreuve sur la dextérité du clavier, et ensuite les bugs que cela génère. J'ai du plusieurs fois recommencer : une fois "fatal error" j'ai du reprendre depuis le début et d'autres bugs qui m'ont obligé à recommencer plusieurs étapes. Enfin de gros prob pour se mouvoir et bouger les choses. Tout ceci nous font oublier la qualité du graphisme et nous mettent trop de stress. Dommage. J'ai cru que j'allais devoir abandonner.
Review from 76561198170657290RYAN
Review from 76561198025152348Lo bueno es la historia que dentro de lo que puede ser una aventura de Tintín, esta está bien escrita y desarrollada, la música, que tiene algunas composiciones muy épicas y e de muy buen gusto que encajan como un guante al tono de la trama y el aspecto gráfico, que aunque lejos de ser lo mejor que se ha visto y teniendo sus fallos, se ve pintón y muy peliculero.... ¡Y hasta ahí lo bueno! Porque todo lo demás en este juego está mal hecho de la peor manera: el gameplay falla, las secuencias entran bruscamente, las partes de QTE son un DESASTRE que no sabría decir si mejor o peor que las de conducción. En resumen: todo lo que este juego tiene de "juego" está taaaaaan mal hecho, que parece haber sido hecho adrede. Una pena y un producto DECEPCIONANTE de una compañía de videojuegos que siempre me ha dado muy buenos ratos con sus creaciones.
Review from 76561198382605372Très beaux graphiques malheureusement un peu trop chargé car pour certaines étapes on reste coincé un bon bout de temps car il manque des éléments dans le décor qui nous empêche d'avancer dans l'histoire, un peu trop de cache-cache et pas assez d'intrigues mais bon il est mignon quand même.
Review from 76561198131992643A very enjoyable game, that makes you smile when you start it and hear the amazing Tintin music. The nostalgic value of this game is huge. A must have for Tintin fans. If you're not a Tintin fan I highly recommend for you to go search for it and watch the TV animated series, it's fantastic. The Spielberg movie is great too. The level design is very solid, with some puzzles that are actually challenging enough to be engaging but not too difficult for you to have to waste too much time on them. Some of the chase parts were a little bit tiring and not very fun, but it's nothing major. There are a couple of bugs, only one of them crashed my game though and the others didn't make much difference. The graphics are solid enough, with an animation that appears adequate for this game. The story is pretty faithful to the original story, so it's very good. The game also has a decent lenght: 12 hours for me to complete it. All in all, a very good game that was a pleasant surprise for me and I really hope they make a sequel out of this. Tintin has a lot of possibilities for future sequeles and I hope they keep doing this good job!
Review from 76561198132540296horrid game, whats with all the quick time events.... cant believe this is a new game, plays like a 2014 game ahaha the old ubisoft game is way more enjoyable.... refunded
Review from 76561198155809835Ganz schön nervig! Spiel hängt sich auf, Steuerung friert ein. Tonausgabe plötzlich in Englisch. Ich hätte wohl noch zwei Jahre warten sollen bis das Spiel flüssig läuft. Total verbuggt!
Review from 76561198050904244Nejlepší hra, kterou kdy Pendulo Studios vydalo! Takovou radost jsem pocítil naposledy, když jsem kdysi hrával sérii Runaway. :) Super.
Review from 76561199103653601Un petit jeu qui passe bien ! Je suis une adepte de ce que propose le studio donc gros soutien en tout cas au studio Pendulo et un grand remerciement pour nous proposer ce style de jeu ! C'est sympathique encore plus si vous ne vous souvenez plus de l'histoire en question ou que vous ne vous êtes jamais intéressé aux aventures de Tintin.
Review from 76561198383393329I was able to complete and 100% the game after patch 1.0.5. The only issue I ran into was during a car race, where the ground would completely disappear and I had to use guesswork to finish it. Besides that I loved this game! I had never seen an episode of Tintin before this but after I beat it I watched the Cigars of the Pharaoh and the game is very similar to the original story. Many of the bad reviews are from previous patches as it initially released in a poor state. The game is filled with QTEs so if that's your thing, you enjoy Tintin, and/or enjoy Xbox-360 era games, this would be perfect for you.
Review from 76561198881042031LOVE Tintin. This game isn't it. It's a movie you press buttons in and sneak around. Has every reason to be amazing and fun, but it isn't. They chose the wrong book and the wrong points in the story to focus on. And the glitches. It's one fatal error away from me quitting...oh wait...it just did, hence why I'm here. I quit. (I even waited until after the larger patches before I played it) EVERY game asset is buggy. -Sneaking, You get seen when no one is there and I'm mantling objects I never approached. -Flying, there was a ghost plane filling my screen and made it impossible to play. -Driving, "hitting" things in the middle of an open area and my car blowing up with full health. They couldn't even bother checking their spelling! (Dave on the plains* not planes). I expect this from Activision or Bethesda who don't actually like their players, just their player's money. This is an entirely unfinished game that the devs should be embarrassed to have produced, let alone released. SHAME ON THEM! This is gross and unacceptable on every level.
Review from 76561199246783319gotta say was super excited to play this game. been a fan of the comics since i was a kid. was met with lotta disappointment, to its credit the story is pretty much the same as the comic its based on. things that really bugged me where, models seem unpolished, stealth missions are really finicky NPCs seem to just ignore their patterns sometimes and automatically detect you.
Review from 76561199195706831Una pena al ser Tintín y una gran historia. Esperaba algo más que quick time events contínuos y sigilo. Los controles muy torpes en algunas escenas.
Review from 76561198049587375It is a disappointment when compared with it's Ubisoft predecessor - were this new team of developers using crayons to write the code for this game?
Review from 76561198006702743Esperaba un juego de aventuras divertido y lo que he recibido son más de 10 horas de bugs y QTE repetitivos. A pesar de que tiene momentos que podrían disfrutables, todo cae por la baja calidad de las animaciones y el rendimiento tan pobre que tiene. Quizás le faltó tiempo de desarrollo, pero aún con las numerosas actualizaciones que lleva, sigue cerrándose de manera repentina y todavía hay puntos de carga que directamente no cargan o no dejan seguir el juego, obligándonos a repetir tramos largos para llegar al sitio que queremos ir para, en mi caso, realizar los numerosos logros que previamente se han bugueado. Y mención especial a NO poder saltar las cinemáticas, teniéndolas que ver todas las veces que repetimos las secciones por los fallos que tiene... Por favor, al menos que añadan la posibilidad de saltar cinemáticas. Si realizan una secuela van a tener que esforzarse mucho para que puedan quitar el sabor amargo que nos ha dado esta entrega.
Review from 76561198043034111Leider läuft das Spiel nicht auf das steamdeck währe perfekt dafür hätte ich gerne darauf gespielt man braucht dan denn Rechner nicht Hochzufahren.
Review from 76561198157059926je ne recomende pas le jeux , sur pc le jeux crash!!! une real engine ,moteur du jeux qui crash !!!! c'est inadmissible , meme avec le premier gros patch, je suis bloqué dans le jeux.
Review from 76561198065772388I grew up reading all of the Tintin comics, and sincerely enjoyed them. I still own a majority of the series, and continue to read them to this day. While I appreciate the efforts of the team, at times, I found myself playing this game, desperate for it to end. I sincerely enjoyed the parts of the game that were essentially point and click adventure - searching in a room for a way through the next doorway, interacting with the environment, and having conversations with the characters whom I read about as a teen, and was thrilled to see the animation come to life in this game. It was truly enjoyable to explore (albeit in a limited capacity, as the game is not open world). However, I had some issues with the game play design. A number of the 'levels' seemed to be focused on sneaking around, which I found challenging sometimes, as the controls to maneuver Tintin's character model were at times inconsistent. Couple the fact that sometimes I would be moving in a certain direction, crouched and undetected, then the camera angle would switch with no warning and suddenly I had to restart 5 minutes of planning my route, with the only explanation being a bad game play mechanic. I can understand having to introduce some artificial difficulty, however, poor game play mechanic design is an interesting way to implement this. Additionally, the camera movement in chase scenes was a bit annoying, as sometimes it would be too close or too far from Tintin to appropriately see the depth of the scene, leading to me running into walls and railings, and having to restart a chase from a previous checkpoint. It felt as though sometimes you were meant to fail a level several times to learn how they had changed a quick time event mechanic from say, press the button once, to pressing it 3 times. This is something I would lump into the category of artificially created level difficulty. When a chase/sneaking 'level' was failed, oftentimes I would have to sit through a cut scene that I had already seen before, several times, which was comical the first few times through, but when the game failed me for seemingly unexplained reasons relating to a bug or a camera angle switch, I found it a bit irritating. One suggestion for the next game or future patches, if applicable - the option to skip dialogue and cut scenes, but only on the second time through. I understand with a game as heavily dependent on an existing story, this would not be an option in all conversations and cut scenes, as it is in many games, but at least make a skip option on the second time through! I can understand how these kinds of design decisions make its way into a game, and am trying not to be too harsh of a critic. This game had some fantastic moments, and the beautiful animation was a treat. Given the news that came out at release about how this game was forced to market earlier than the development teams anticipated, I can understand the many bugs I encountered (but lets be honest, what games don't bug out in some way? It is hard to plan for every eventuality) and I can understand some of the linear pass or fail game play mechanics. As a developer myself, I also understand pushing something out that is not complete, simply because it is the timeline someone else set for me. All in all, I want to thank the development teams for their work, they made a beautiful game, brought a classic tale to life, and although there are several things which I nitpicked on in my review, I have faith that later patches and or later games will take some of this into account. However, for now, I would opt against recommending this game to others, unless they are childhood Tintin fans, like myself.
Review from 76561198287724645Le dernier jeu Tintin Reporter - Les Cigares du Pharaon était très attendu, notamment car il promettait des améliorations par rapport aux précédents opus. Cependant, malgré certains aspects positifs, le jeu souffre de plusieurs problèmes majeurs qui gâchent l'expérience globale. D'abord, le jeu est rempli de défauts techniques, ce qui nuit grandement au déroulement du jeu. Ces problèmes, allant de petites erreurs à des dysfonctionnements plus graves, perturbent l'immersion et la fluidité du jeu. Pour un titre de cette importance, on s'attendrait à une meilleure finition. Ensuite, les énigmes, s'avèrent être une source de frustration plutôt qu'un défi intéressant. Leur conception manque souvent de clarté, rendant la progression plus laborieuse que satisfaisante. Bien que le jeu propose quelques passages divertissants et visuellement plaisants, ces moments sont malheureusement gâchés par l'inclusion d’énigmes superflues et désagréables. Ces "missions" semblent plus être un remplissage qu'une partie intégrante de l'aventure, ce qui est décevant pour les fans de Tintin. Pour conclure, Tintin Reporter - Les Cigares du Pharaon avait le potentiel de marquer une nette amélioration par rapport aux jeux précédents de la série, mais il est loin de répondre aux attentes. Les défauts techniques, les énigmes décevantes et inutiles laissent une impression de gâchis. C'est vraiment dommage, étant donné le potentiel évident du jeu.
Review from 76561197998857663I say yes because you get to play Tintin or Milou but I say no because there are thousands og glitches and bugs.
Review from 76561198034760133Good graphics and a license does not make a good game. It seems no one of the dev team have ever read Tin Tin nor have any experience with small dogs. There is no key for slipping into the world of Herge. It is more a typical Jump & Run game with some Hide and Seek aspects. Those who love the Spielberg movie may probably like the game as it is. If so, give it a try.
Review from 76561198225496228Con todo el dolor del alma, porque amo los juegos de Pendulo Studios, tengo que decir que no lo recomiendo. Como puntos en contra puedo señalar: - Tironeos de la camara al girarla. - Caida aparatosa de frames que dificultan la jugabilidad. - Glitches en varias partes que arruinan la experiencia. - Se superponen las voces de los personajes y no se entiende nada. - Se triggerean dialogos en inglés si se juega en español. - Tintin parece que fuera un niño de 12 años. Quien hizo el diseño y quien lo aprobó? - El joystick tiene 1 segundo de delay en la respuesta de los sticks (no en los botones). Soltás el stick para que Tintin deje de caminar y este hace 2 pasos de más y luego se frena. Te terminás acostumbrando, pero resulta bastante molesto. - Posicionarse frente a un objeto para interactuar con él resulta tedioso, ya que si no es exactamente frente a este, no se habilita el botón correspondiente. - He llegado a ver el mallado 3D del personaje, con las opciones graficas en modo ultra. Realmente es una decepción la poca calidad que presenta. Practicamente tiene los mismos problemas tecnicos que el juego de Blacksad cuando salió. Muchachos de Pendulo Studios: Es la 2da vez que hacen un producto mediocre sobre un juego con licencia (Blacksad y ahora Tintin). Claramente el tema de los juegos completamente en 3D no es lo suyo, es hora de aceptarlo. Las aventuras graficas y la combinacion 2D/3D las hacen perfectas, no tiene nada de malo volver a esos origenes.
Review from 76561199235402284Naja ich sag's mal so: wer eine masochistische Ader hat, wird an diesem Spiel tatsächlich sehr viel Freude haben. Wir haben das ganze im Stream durchgezockt und es war die pure Folter. Voice-Dialoge sind teilweise nicht korrekt synchronisiert oder teilweise auch gar nicht hörbar, so dass man sich mit Lippenlesen beschäftigen darf um überhaupt zu wissen, was denn jetzt die aktuelle Aufgabe ist. Zudem hat das Spiel zahlreiche Crashes hingelegt - und das nicht nur bei uns, sondern auch bei jedem anderen, welchen ich gefragt habe. Wobei man dazu sagen muss, dass wir noch zu den "glücklichen" gehört haben, welche das Spiel trotz allen Fehlern und Crashes immerhin noch beenden konnten. Das liegt aber hauptsächlich auch daran, dass wir uns über fliegende Fackeln und magische Gewehre welche ihren Soldaten in der Luft verfolgen prächtig amüsiert haben und sehen wollten welche magischen Meisterwerke die Entwickler des Spiels denn sonst noch so auf Lager hatten. Generell empfehle ich jedem die rund 40 Euro in ein anderes Game zu stecken und eine solch schlampige Arbeit nicht auch noch durch einen Kauf zu belohnen.. aber müsst ihr ja schlussendlich selbst wissen...
Review from 76561198357657789Cara, sendo muito sincero aqui, eu gosto muito do personagem Tintim, é um personagem que marcou bastante minha infância com o jogo de xbox 360, o filme e as histórias em quadrinhos. Mas esse jogo não dá, eu tive muuuuuitos problemas com bugs nesse jogo, problemas com renderização de texturas, problemas de áudio, sempre ficava sem música em partes do jogo que era para ter música e sempre fazia som do meu personagem andando com eu parado, eu odiei a movimentação do Tintim, é muito travada, muito esquisito de jogar, até a movimentação do milu é melhor, tive problemas com crash do jogo tbm, crashou duas vezes do nada, e as vezes quando eu pausava o jogo, ele travava e não voltava mais até eu fechar o jogo e abrir dnv, outra coisa que não gostei tbm foi as expressões dos personagens, achei sla, meio que a as expressões não coincidiam com o tom de voz, sentimento e situação, e por último, algumas animações, como a de deslizar e dps levantar de um barranco, as duas animações estavam muito esquisitas, invés de ter alguma animação nessas ações, o Tintim só teleporta pro chão e na hora de levantar ele teleportar e continua andando como se nada tivesse acontecendo. Apesar de todos esses bugs que atrapalharam muito a gameplay, tem coisas que quero elogiar tbm, o level de design é maravilhoso, cada cantinho tinha um detalhezinho diferente que deixava cada área do jogo mais bonita que a outra, os gráficos do jogo tbm estavam lindos e a iluminação tbm. A história para mim estava interessante no começo do jogo, dps ficou um pouco devagar dms e como estava tendo problemas com os bugs eu só queria terminar logo, quando estava terminando o jogo comecei a sentir interesse novamente pela história (não tinha lido essa história). Em geral, se eu soubesse que estava com tantos bugs não compraria o jogo, esperaria para jogar, ainda mais pelo preço. Peguei em uma promoção na GreenManGaming por 55 reais.
Review from 76561198974931719Puzzles too difficult and there's no choice to skip those nor any hint given
Review from 76561198175411281Snowy真可爱,小狗永远满分! 至于制作组,去你妈的! Fix the bugs quickly
Review from 76561198144201836Both really good and totally vomit-inducing. I'm so angry at people releasing a playable demo as a full game, as was the case of Gollum, so is the case here. On the plus side, they can fix the problems in this game. Crash after crash after crash and disappearing textures. Over-use of QTE's makes for a bad game. The feeling of being inside a Tintin album was really good, so good I'm looking forward to the next game, hoping that they playtest the game before releasing it, as they clearly omitted with this one.
Review from 76561197996406759Je ne comprend pas que dans un jeu en 2023, on ne puisse pas changer les commandes, ou que cela propose les touches en fonction du clavier de l'ordinateur. ZSQD pour se déplacer quand on a un clavier autre que AZERTY, c'est très compliqué, voire impossible. Il faut donc 2 mains pour se déplacer, plus 1 pour la souris. Peut-être qu'avec un contrôleur ca serait possible, mais pour cela il en faut 1, et cela renchérit passable le coût du jeu
Review from 76561199003893181[h3]Je commence avec les choses qui fâchent.[/h3] [b]Oui le jeu est buggué.[/b] Et même pire, j'ai eu quelques crashes, surtout au moment où [spoiler]on s'évade de prison.[/spoiler] J'ai eu aussi un bug très gênant lors de [spoiler]la course en voiture vers l'asile[/spoiler] durant laquelle l'affichage du sol était saccadé. Vraiment insupportable pour le coup ! La plupart des bugs graphiques sont moins contraignants. Un jeu mal configuré qui laisse une impression d'amateurisme à l'égard de ceux qui l'ont conçu. [b]Le plus gros défaut : la jouabilité :[/b] - Les phase où on incarne Milou sont nombreuses. Le concept est original. Mais il est complètement raté ! Ses mouvements sont dignes d'un robot. Ultra-rigides. J'ai l'impression de téléguider R2-D2. Et pourquoi milou est en 1ere personne alors que tintin est en 3ème ? - La maniabilité des véhicules qu'on est amené à piloter se résume en un mot : nul. - les phases de poursuite. Les mouvements de Tintin sont plus qu'imprécis. La caméra est souvent mal orientée. Les choix du parcours sont trop dirigistes. [i]Exemple : à gauche, une table. A droite, une table. Il faut sauter au-dessus une table (les tables sont identiques). Je prends à gauche. Ah non, perdu. Tintin ne veux pas sauter. Il fallait prendre à droite. Car le jeu a décidé que la table sur laquelle Tintin pouvait sauter est celle de droite.[/i] - le phénomène de "mur invisible" réduit la liberté d'action du joueur. C'est incohérent car Tintin est petit et fin il devrait pouvoir se faufiler. l'IA rencontrée lors des phases d'infiltration est d'une stupidité affligeante. [b]La durée de vie est trop courte pour un jeu à 40€. [/b] Une fois que le jeu est fini (environ 8 heures), [spoiler]ben c'est fini.... Rien d'autre à faire.[/spoiler] Le rapport temps de jeu/prix est donc naze. [h3]Cela étant,[/h3] En tant que fan de Tintin, ça a été un bonheur de retomber en enfance grâce à ce jeu. D'autant que, et c'est l'énorme qualité du jeu, [b]l'esprit de la BD "Les cigares du pharaon" est parfaitement respecté.[/b] Tout est fidèle au scénario de Hergé. Jusque dans les détails. Les scènes cultes de l'album sont là. Seuls quelques passages vers la fin, [spoiler]dans les sous-sols de la confrérie[/spoiler], sont romancés par les développeurs. Mais ces libertés prises par eux ont pour but de nous proposer des énigmes supplémentaires pour rajouter un peu de durée de vie. Elles n'ont pas d'impact sur le scénario originel et sont là pour le "meubler" un peu plus. Bref, cinématiques et environnements respectent à la lettre la BD de Hergé "Les cigares du pharaon". En tant que puriste, ça m'a touché et j'en ai été ravi. Les décors sont beaux, notamment dans le tombeau et dans le palais. Et le jeu a un touché graphique très singulier et réussi. Le doublage en français est très bien. Du rêve, de la nostalgie et du bon temps. C'est le principal. Pouce vert ! Dernière chose pour les bourrins : Le jeu est subtil : énigmes "casses-têtes", phases de discrétion, exploration. :) Si vous êtes tintinophile, ce serait dommage de passer à coté. :( Par contre, si vous n'êtes pas un grand fan de tintin, que les énigmes et la furtivité ça vous gonfle, et que vous préférez les jeux où il y'a de la filoche, passez votre chemin.

Review from 76561198003030375[quote][url=https://store.steampowered.com/curator/6142328/][b] With 1,400+ reviews, make sure to follow The Cpt Froggy Club Curator Page for plenty more![/b][/url][/quote] Tintin Reporter - Cigars of the Pharaoh: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hergé is one of the most renowned writers and artists of French-language comic books (The Adventure of Tintin). It’s staggering to think that Tintin's stories have been translated into 38 different languages, bringing joy to both children and adults since he was first introduced by the weekly publication "Le Petit Vingtième" on January 10, 1929. As I am a big fan of Tintin, I had to try it no matter what. So now, what do I think about this Tintin game? Tintin Reporter - Cigars of the Pharaoh is an adventure with puzzles and racing (chasing) elements developed by Pendulo Studios and published by Microids on the 8th of November, 2023. The game is also available on PS4/PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. In the Cigars of the Pharaoh, you will play in six different locations: the MS Epomeon, the Kih-Oskh tomb, a smuggling boat, the town of Abudin, the Indian jungle and Gaipajama. In each location there are tasks to do that combine chasing (either being chased or chasing something), stealth, finding objects, and of course, puzzles. One aspect I particularly like is that at some point in each location, you play Tintin’s dog, Snowy (Milou in French) to either help Tintin or find Tintin. You’ll require some stealth early in the game, mostly to find a path to help Tintin. There’s a sequence towards the end of the game that will be timed. One of game’s weak spots is the camera rotation, which is a shame because you need to use it as Snowy in order to find your path. The puzzles are well-placed throughout the game but average in terms of difficulty. The only one that took me a bit by surprise was the opening box at the Major House in the Indian Jungle. I liked was the stealth phases, especially the one where you have to follow Professor Sarcophagus through the jungle as you have to figure out the puzzle to make him go through a specific path; that was fun. I had issues with the chasing sequences. From the start on board the Epomeon vessel, you have to chase a flying Egyptian manuscript, and you need to either click on a specific button or use the gamepad directional sticks following instructions. The issue was that more than once, while pressing the correct buttons or using the directional stick, it would not work, and I would have to restart from the last saving point. But the worst point was that the game would crash after reloading to the last save, which happened in every location in a chasing sequence; very frustrating. Another issue was disappearing terrain during a car chase in India; it was odd! And yes, I had the latest Nvidia Drivers for my RTX 4080 video card. Strangely enough, this issue didn’t occur in other regions. I also experienced a few glitches with the voice-over, mostly synchronisation. And to top it off, the cutscenes, which show illustrations between locations, didn’t run smoothly. To be fair, the developers are aware of the issues and trying their best to rectify them. The developers succeeded in keeping the story true to the comic book, and I enjoyed the visuals and comic elements. Again, they had the right combination of phases (chasing, puzzles etc) at each location, but the execution let them down, I am afraid. I think the game is worth playing, especially as the developers are committed to providing a good gaming experience. And yes, I did notice a few improvements during my playthrough. Would I replay the game once all the issues are rectified? Probably not. I did like it, though, and if I hadn’t experienced these issues, I would have given it a good 8 out of 10. Positives: ~~~~~~~ + Fantastic graphics + Faithfull to the comic book + Good variety of phases (puzzles, racing, stealth, etc) within levels + Snowy first-person parts are fun to play + Achievements Negatives: ~~~~~~~~ - Many crashes after reloading to a restart point - Issues with activating jumping, rolling while being chased or chasing - Flickering issues here and there - Doesn’t have replayability - No trading cards as yet Faithful to the comic book, Cigars of the Pharaoh is visually beautiful, but the game has issues that need to be addressed. As a fan of Tintin, the game fell short of my expectations. 6/10 Key provided by the developer/publisher for review purposes. Any opinions expressed are entirely my own!

Review from 76561198053418622Nul , ça lag beaucoup ( j'ai une petite carte graphique ça doit surement venir de là) , le gros souci est qu'on ne peut pas modifier les touche dans les réglages , alors qu'on peut le faire partout ailleurs " son, vidéo etc" . Là où c'est le serpent qui ce mord la queue ! Il y a la touche pour valider les réglage qu'on ne peut pas changer. Je suis très déçu . je connait quelque jeu de Pendulo studio que j'ai trouvé très bien , c'est pour cela que j'ai voulu le tester
Review from 76561199144774350Trop de bugs, j'ai dû relancer le jeu plusieurs fois, lors d'une mission le décor ne s'affichait pas. Sinon les énigmes sont plutôt cool sauf 2 qui sont mal fait. 5/10, je ne mets pas moins uniquement parce que c'est l'univers Tintin.
Review from 76561199237816679Está bien
Review from 76561198135728617don't do it. please. please don't do it. I love tintin, but don't do it. it's literally softlock simulator. please god don't do it.
Review from 76561198018012587Waited for the latest patch. Started playing again, Tintin got stuck behind some geometry, reloaded, and apparently I have to start the game again. At the current state I cannot recommend this game.

Review from 76561198169186292Controls are cluncky Too many QTEs
Review from 76561198003769347The Tintin vibe is in this game is pretty Tintin-y. However, the game is so incredibly broken - I suggest waiting until they patch it up before giving it a serious go! For fun, though? Give it a go as is LOL It was a wild ride That being said, it has potential so I'm not going to thumbs it down. It will be glorious when it's all fixed!
Review from 76561198071467957Apesar do jogo ter sido lançado com alguns bugs que acredito que serão corrigidos ao longo do tempo eu estou gostando muito da história e jogabilidade do game. Para quem é fã vale a pena jogar! Os puzzles são bem legais e instigam o raciocínio lógico. Recomendo!!!
Review from 76561199190781769滿好玩的
Review from 76561198333290159super godt spil :)
Review from 76561198050679700Por desgracia aún tiene muchos bugs de sonido, los enemigos, de cámara. Y problemas de rendimientos. La historia esta bien adaptada, terminando con el mismo cliffhanger que en el cómic, les recomiendo leer los comics de Tintin. jeje
Review from 76561197974105367What a disappointment. Graphics look vibrant and pretty spot on to the comics but it's a console port as the adjustments are minimum and right at the beginning it states to "not turn off the console when saving". I didn't encounter any game breaking bugs but noticed some glitches here and there. But what made me dislike the game were the stupid QTE's. Using a controller, as recommended by the game, you have to move the left stick up, down or left or right. Same with the right stick. Then pressing any of the other buttons. If you fail one of them, you need to repeat the whole process. Voice acting is just below average. The funny scenes weren't even that funny. The delivery was just flat, I couldn't even crack a smile or chuckle at them. Playing as the dog was alright but mainly stealth driven and not very good at it either. Hiding under a table makes you invisible, although you are in plain view to everyone. I really wanted to game to be good since I read the comics as a child, but sadly it can't deliver the same charm. If the QTE's weren't present, it may have been enjoyable.
Review from 76561198062688881aun no funciona se para el juego y no contitua
Review from 76561199102245552Bugs et plantage du jeu rendent la progression difficile . Certaines "courses poursuites" sont trop longues et finissent par lasser. La jouabilité est compliquée que ce soit avec une manette ou au clavier. J'ai fini par abandonné après la sortie de l'asile, trop de poursuite , trop compliqué de diriger Tintin et encore plus avec Milou. Je suis très déçu.
Review from 76561198131934039It's nostalgia time baby UwU
Review from 76561198302878125Finally. Playable. And It has the theme!.
Review from 76561198259610758I have only good things to say about this game.
Review from 76561199114242225Menudo mierdon. No vale los 40 euros que piden ni mucho menos. Las cinemáticas se paran todo el rato. Es poco intuitivo y no vale este precio. Para los amantes de tintin es mejor conformarse con los cómics o las pelis. No lo recomiendo.
Review from 76561198158747048Tiene unos cuantos bugs gráficos y problemas con las voces en español, a algunos NPCs se les cambia a inglés. Quitando eso, el juego es realmente divertido

Review from 76561198433037414Gutes Spiele für die Fans der Reihe von Tim und Struppi leider hat das Spiel aber einige Technische Probleme und ist noch nicht ganz Ausgearbeitet.
