Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is the only game that lets players experience first-hand the misadventures of the savvy and resilient Baudelaire orphans as they narrowly escape from the clutches of the villainous Count Olaf who is after their inheritance. In the game, players switch between the three orphans, mastering each one's skills to solve puzzles and collect various items to build ingenious inventions. Players make their way across 20 levels filled with puzzle-solving and platforming challenges. Each of the three kids has their own unique talents and skills. There's Violet, the oldest child and the inventor of the family. Then there's the middle child, Klaus, the bookworm. And lastly, there's baby Sunny, who has a penchant for mischief and four very sharp teeth.

Graphics: Graphically this game is amazing and is practically art itself to look at. All the Characters I thought were graphically done well, and there environments were beautiful to look at. I just wasn't impressed with the scenes in between gameplay, it seems the Game Developers rushed, and didn't make the scenes as clear as the gameplay, there was a lot of fuzziness in the cut scenes.
Picture (Video) and Sound (Audio): Even at 480 pixels on the Gamecube on my TV which has standard definition, the game looked great and would probably benefit greatly if it were in 1080 HD. The Sounds were excellent, I could still hear the game well enough even when I had the TV on low volume. So the Audio and Video were great with the acceptation of the cutscenes, if the developers had more time (which I am guessing they released this game on the same day of the movie release date) then I am sure they could've spent a little bit of time making the video in the scenes less fuzzy and make the audio clearer though that comes through very well. Overall this game is a lot of fun, while I do feel it can be very restrictive as far as what and where you can interact in the gaming environment, overall this game is a lot of fun, you make inventions out of items you find and need you gain certain abilities like Klaus having flying shoes and Violet shooting fruit, and sucking up snakes, and Olaf's henchmen are certainly a challenge it's a fun game, I will defiantly keep it in my collection, it's a fun 3rd Party game, for Gamecube. The A/I is very impressive and of course this game had some minor glitches like when Violet is on her stilts when you stop moving the control stick I noticed she kind of looked like she was going to fall but caught herself before falling over, where I wish she would've stopped. But the Game is otherwise a fun game, I love it.
1. The characters themselves are realistically animated, and the Sunny animations are especially amusing, with the way that she bites things, squeals, does little dances, etc. I've smiled and laughed a lot just at how well the characters were represented.
2. Voices are very good, including the use of some of the major actors appearing in the upcoming film, although their use is not pervasive during normal game play.
3. The scenario is great fun - far more involving than the books so far! Playing the piano to break it apart and get it open was a real riot!!! The settings are creepy, with little roaches crawling about, and rats and spiders and such.
4. The game reaches the level of art!! Who did the soundtrack? The music is AWESOME and wondrous! After the dingy mansion of Count Olaf, there are episodes of light relief that fill the player with a sense of peace and wonder - the Library scene, Uncle Monty's House and Garden. The Garden with butterflies flapping by, grass blowing, wondrous music playing, and the Big Tree adventure with Klaus flying over the greenery, rivers, etc. finally made me see this video game as reaching a level of artistic accomplishment - like a good painting, to just get lost in and enjoy all the details and sensory input. Wow!
And at first I was concerned that I might get through the game too quickly. After 8 hours though and only being midway through, I know I'm getting my $40 worth, for I will surely play through the whole thing more than once just as one watches a favorite video or takes a hike along a favorite forest path. I calculate that at about $2 per hour, this game is giving a far better return than seeing the film in the theater when it comes out (although I plan to do that too). And that's not even counting the game's resale value afterward!
In addition, there are some special game features that tie in with the film - with players eventually awarded with film photos, information, A/V from and about the film...
One extra note to game players is that I don't think players will get a great deal of benefit from the BradyGuide to this game. That game guide is poorly mapped and far from comprehensive, while the instruction manual that comes in the game itself gives enough instruction and detail to allow players to start and proceed. Save yourself $15 by avoiding the BradyGuide, because a map you make yourself while playing will likely be far more useful. Halfway through the game so far, I only got about two useful tips from that guidebook, and I would have figured those clues out on my own anyway...
This game is well worth your money,always entertaining you no matter where you are.This is a great family game and I really think you and other people will really have an incredible experience with this game.
