Countdown to 100 - 98th: Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Based on a movie based on a book, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is actually pretty fun and pretty well done for a license game. Aimed at the younger audiences, the adventures of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire in count Olaf's gloomy mansion offer enough variety for more mature too. This 3D action adventure is based on puzzles. To overcome them you usually need Violet's ingeniousness to come up with a suitable gadget, gathering parts for it, and after building it using it with either Violet or her brother Klaus. The little Sunny has her moments too as she squeezes through tight spots for some 2D-platforming. Oh, the movie is memorable for presenting Emily Browning to the world who since has matured into a fine young woman and in this game her likeness is accurate enough. I picked up the game from a second-hand bookstore. The game counts as 98th PS2 game in the collection, leaving only two games to complete the achievement. Next, those last two...

 Ew, sewers... Luckily Violet lends helping... legs.
-Why you're looking at me like that?
- I'm... just kinda imagining how you'd mature up... you know?
