The Da Vinci Code PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Dan Brown’s controversial The Da Vinci Code started life as a book, it was a phenomenon so it spawned a film and it was only natural for a game to appear sometime down the line. The game is far more cerebral than your average movie licence, which giving the subject matter is hardly a surprise.

The Da Vinci Code Review

  • Excerpt: Whether you thought Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code was a brilliant thriller, utter tosh, or the work of the devil, it always had the potential to bring some new life to the moribund adventure genre when the inevitable movie brought the inevitable game. With its historical conspiracies, overzealous French police, French partner, and occasional murderous zealots, the story could almost have been a Broken Sword game, and the involvement of Revolution's Charles Cecil must have...

  • Excerpt: The Da Vinci Code is a bit of an enigma. I’m not talking about the book or the movie or even the code, but rather about the game itself. It’s as if the developers couldn’t really make up their minds as to what it should be. Is it a movie license or a game based on a book? Is it an action game or an adventure game? Are the players of the game familiar with the book and movie or are they starting the story from scratch?

  • Excerpt: The biggest movie of 2006 has so far also been the most controversial. The Da Vinci Code, considered heresy by the Catholic Church, has been condemned by Catholics around the country and The Church even put pressure onto Sony to put a warning at the beginning of the movie that it was a work of fiction. Oddly enough, while most of the story is intact, The Da Vinci Code game aims to steer clear of any controversy by changing the names of Opus Dei, among other things.

  • Conclusion: Solving puzzles and providing a good storyline is the basis for any good classic adventure game, and sadly The Da Vinci Code only gets this half right. The puzzles are great fun to decode, but it's a shame the story never goes anywhere.

  • Conclusion: If you're a fan of adventure games, you'll find something to like about The Da Vinci Code. If you've read the book and seen the movie and still can't get enough of the story, you'll have fun jumping in and solving the mystery for yourself. Just don't expect the production values to be on par with those of the blockbuster film.
  • Pros: The puzzles are varied and challenging, The game sticks closely to the book and film but adds new content of its own to pad out the adventure, Relatively lengthy storyline with secrets and unlockables to find.
  • Cons: Characters look bad, animate poorly, and sound flat, Combat is fairly well done but seems out of place in the context of the story, Lots of bugs make the game feel unfinished, Story tends to move very slowly at times.

  • Conclusion: The graphics on the whole are very basic: everything kind of looks like it’s supposed to, enough that you can differentiate Robert from Sophie anyway! All the characters scream dreadfully average at the top of their digital lungs and he environments are nothing special either.
  • Pros: Good puzzles, Not too tough
  • Cons: Bland graphics, Awful combat system, Terrible “French” voice acting!
