slightly dated, a decent offering of the original characters. While it is not required to be a fan of the Tintin, with in certain points it does hellp to know of him. This is obviously where the friendship began for Tintin and the Captain. we never really get to know the genisis for Thompson and Thompson. I do dislike lines like "who is that? why everyone knows Tintin..." obviously not!) Aslo the 3D effects can be distracting at times, and under done at others. early adopters will have their issues.
