  1. So what we have is a professionally made game with all the right pieces in all the right places, but with enough imperfection to prevent an “A” rating.
  2. The gameplay is easy and straightforward, there are no mind-numbing puzzles. It is also a short game. However, it’s fun enough while it lasts for those who like these types of stories.
  3. It could have been a fantastic adventure game with the intriguing idea of using multiple characters simultaneously and its engaging story. However, the many flaws, including its glitch-riddled graphics, short length, and lack of direction, keep it from the adventure gaming hall of fame.
  4. Belief & Betrayal is more apt to irritate than titillate. Chances are it will run on your PC, but its humdrum story and unnecessarily tedious gameplay will leave you wondering why you bothered in the first place.

    The plot, a twisting tale that intersects with myriad Christian relics and the occasional brutal murder, is enough to potentially keep you interested, but considering the generally weak characters, arduous collection and bland puzzle designs, it's not enough to warrant a purchase.
  6. These design flaws--along with some pedestrian puzzles and those aforementioned protagonist miscues--ultimately turn Belief & Betrayal into a servicable but largely forgettable European church tour. [Oct 2008, p.70]
  7. Every aspect of the game design has been mishandled in some way or another.
  8. Belief & Betrayal is a paint-by-numbers adventure that amounts to little more than a lame rip-off of the Da Vinci Code.
  9. Poorly translated and badly acted, there's little here to distract from the terrible gameplay.
  10. The game has its moments and a few interesting ideas, but the experience as a whole is so irritating, with its constantly grating voices, bad writing and dull gameplay, that you barely register the positive.
  11. Matters are made worse by the pre-2003 3D models, the atrocious voice acting, and the shocking writing. [Sept 2008, p.77]
