Save the day for the Baudelaire orphans in the Lemon Snicket video game by Activision!

The poor Baudelaire orphans just can't get a break from the unfortunate events that keep happening to them. First their parents perish in a horrible fire, then they get stuck with their rotten uncle, Count Olaf, who wants to steal their family fortune. Activision got involved with all this horribleness by making the Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events video game for the Playstation 2, Xbox and Gamecube so you can play as the Baudelaire orphans and try to save the day. Now, we review how horrible this game is.

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Game Basics

The game is mostly about you controlling Violet and Klaus as they run and jump their way through the series of unfortunate events. There's item collecting, invention building, boss bopping, villain dodging, baby adventures with Sunny and even musical mini-games.

Good News for the Baudelaire Orphans

Well, not good for them, but great for you. The Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events video game is a lot of fun. If you've played the Harry Potter video games then you have an idea of what it's like. But, it has more mini-games and uses Violet's gadgets to solve puzzles. Plus, you get a free ticket to see the movie and can unlock extra game-scenes with Count Olaf!

More Unfortunate Events for the Baudelaire Orphans

The biggest problem with helping the Baudelaire orphans defeat Count Olaf and his horrible henchmen are the controls. It can be frustrating to get Violet and Klaus to do exactly what you want and that's unfortunate.

Is it an Unfortunate Video Game?

Not at all! It has a few rough spots but is a solid game with lots of extra stuff to do to unlock secrets and more. If you want a fun game to play this Christmas season, this is one series of unfortunate events you won't want to miss.
