    The da vinci code is a very simplistic game(in the way of brain straining but in a good way).

All of the game is based around the book and movie. the story is the same Youre framed for murder and are on the run while trying to figure out the mysterious secrets of the da vinci code and find the real killer.This game is based upon one subject.Puzzles.all of these puzzles make you have to really push youre brain to the point of thinking.realllllllllly Thinking.The high point of the game is the puzzles and story which makes the game really adictive. the low point is the waaaaaaaay to simplistic and easy fighting system.Yes I said fighting system.This is simpler then opening a magazine and easyer then beating an infent at Scrabble. this is what keeps it from a 10. the cool part of the game is that most of the puzzles come straght from the book so in a way if youve read the book you can tell what the messages are. the book is like a little cheat guide. For anyone who wants a really good puzzle and story game you are in heaven. for fighting go play GTA. Expand

    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. Better stick to the book as this game proves to be too simplistic and dull to be of any fun.

    So then, another Hollywood movie, and another so-so game based on it. The Da Vinci Code has the right heritage but unfortunately suffers from the same disease as many of its ilk - it has been rushed to meet a release date without receiving the kind of polish that could have made a great game out of the subject matter.
