The Da Vinci Code - An entertaining game let down by the gameplay
24 August 2011
Excerpt: The Da Vinci Code is a mystery game for the Playstation 2 published by 2K Games in 2006. It is loosely based upon the novel of the same name by Dan Brown and is unconnected with the film adaptation.
Pros: Good story, challenging puzzles, good atmosphere
Summary: This game is very difficult. It has lots of hard puzzles. The only way you can really complete this game is with a walkthrough. If you're a fan of action video games, then don't buy it. If you like puzzles and that sort of thing well then buy it.
Summary: I only played it for a few minutes due to my poor PS2 controller skills but I seemed to like it. My husband actually critised the game but I totally disagreed with him. However, I'd prefer solving the anagram to fighting the guards because the PS2 controller is useless unlike Wii Mote.
Summary: I didn't quite know what to expect from this game. I was really surprised as I could hardly put down the controller! I haven't read the book or seen the film but the game looked interesting so I bought it.
Excerpt: The Da Vinci Code roles everything into one with combat, puzzles to solve, stealth to pull off and more. TRUTH TO MOVIE The game generally follows the storyline of the movie, there is some extra events added that could not have happened in the movie but the plot of the game and film are similar is...
Pros: Fun puzzles, good graphics, good sound, hard to complete
Summary: The recomended age group for this game is 12+, but there can't be many twelve year olds that would have the academic ability to solve the majority of puzzles included in this game. It has stuck largely to the book, with some variations to make the game more enjoyable.
