  1. It could have been a bit longer, maybe lasting more than fourteen days to represent The Fourteen Stations of the Cross, and the combat system could have been better, like the outstanding fight between Jesus and temptation for forty days and forty nights in the desert - but this game could be the closest thing to witnessing the turning a good film into a good game miracle, much like Jesus turned water into wine.
  2. Ignore the media furore, and enjoy this as a standalone puzzler. [July 2006, p.97]
  3. The Da Vinci Code will have the greatest appeal, ironically, to those who have not read the book or seen the movie, as a strong familiarization with Dan Brown's work may actually detract from the gaming experience.
  4. You'll spend plenty of time cracking anagrams and other codes, and they aren't child's play, either. There's some combat, too, which, while feeling a little out of place, does provide for variation in the game.

The fighting scenes require considerable skills with the mouse, and if you're knocked out (which is very often the case), your punishment is to start over a long, long, looooong sequence of game history again. And then again, and again. And there's no way you can control this.

    The game could be rather good, otherwise, but the half-baked check point system makes it all doomed. My personal advice is, don't bother to buy this game if you don't have some masochistic inclination toward re-living the past over and over again.

The lack of an in game map force you to a lot of running up and down. Grafic and animations is not impressing and the AI af the police og Opus Dei foes is nearly absent. A pitifull and quickly forgotte piece af merchandising. Full Review »

The aim is to click the mouse buttons in the same order that they are 'flashed' on the bottom of the screen. This means you can't actually watch the action! Stoopid. What is it with film tie-ins? They never work out. Full Review »
