  1. Overall, Code Lyoko is one of the better cartoon-based games I've played lately.
  2. The action is smooth, but in this advanced age of 3D gaming there's no excuse for not being able to fight and move at the same time. [Aug 2007, p.88]

    DS gamers looking for a fresh take on narrative and storytelling should definitely give this game a look, but be warned it is very text heavy. The blend of the two genres is a mixed bag.
  4. Code Lyoko’s players are likely to be split in two: those who enjoy both portions of the game and those who only enjoy the 3D half. Regardless of your expected preference, this game is worth a look.
  5. 65
    Code Lyoko is great for fans of the show, since the stories are taken right from it, but for everyone else that isn't familiar with the cartoon it may not be wise for them to virtualize.
  6. Younger fans of the show will likely enjoy watching the story gradually unfold as they constantly use the characters' superpowers to fight monsters in Lyoko's virtual world. However, the game's sluggish pace, repetitive combat, and straightforward puzzles guarantee that older or experienced players will lose interest long before the story reaches its conclusion.
  7. So what did it need besides a miracle? Depth. Lots of depth.
