    Nothing special, but Da Vinci nuts will lap it up. [June 2006, p.96]
  2. While the Secrets of Da Vinci is hardly a masterpiece, it still has glimmers of genius and intrigue. The game has obviously been well thought-out, and is a nice way to pass the weekend; but sadly there is nothing to make you want to play through a second time.

    Secrets of da Vinci doesn't offer the difficult challenges or compelling narrative of other successful adventure games but it does manage to give players a window into the historical Leonardo's past as well as giving them a greater appreciation of his artistic and engineering achievements.
  4. Beyond the name, there isn't anything remarkable about The Secrets of Da Vinci. It's a solid but standard point-and-click adventure that isn't the least bit adventurous. Despite that, it still proves satisfying enough for fans of adventure games.
  5. The storyline didn’t drive much excitement, or provide any motivation to solve the puzzles that were difficult at times. Only your interests in the works of Da Vinci keep you involved.

    Aloof and distant, Secrets of Da Vinci isn't a bad game, just an unfriendly one. [Oct. 2006, p.72]
  7. Although this doesn't exactly break the mould, figuring out Da Vinci's secrets is generally a pleasurable stroll through a variety of well-crafted and largely logical puzzles and mini-games. The lack of psychotic monks and professors of symbology is an added bonus.
