The game is billed as an action adventure game, but really, the action nature is very much mellowed down. The combat, in particular, just isn't very well done. Instead of allowing the player to freely attack an opponent, the game opts for a Struggle System that requires the player to press a series of buttons shown on the screen to perform an attack or defend sequence. This is an idea borrowed from the great adventure game Indigo Prophecy, but somehow, it just doesn't work as well here. Moreover, given the preconceptions that both the lead characters, Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu, aren't exactly martial arts expert, seeing them perform karate chops on opponents just doesn't feel right.
The adventure feature of the game, however, is pretty well done. Considering that The Da Vinci Code is about solving a murder case, and the uncovering of a great conspiracy of a grand scale, it's only right that the puzzles in this game offers the right amount of challenges. Cryptograms, puzzles and riddles are just some of the things that are thrown at your path liberally. And boy, some of these are truly tough. I like games that provide a good mind challenge, so it's not surprising that I find the puzzle elements in this game highly enjoyable. At times, the puzzles feel too pretentious, almost to the point of giving the player a puzzle for the sake of having a puzzle.Read more ›
Now, it appears that these types of games may be coming back in the form of such titles as the Da Vinci Code. While not strictly an adventure game, it does bring back puzzle-solving, creative thinking, and a strong game-driven storyline to the mix.
The puzzles are good (though not too hard) and add to the plot instead of just being tossed in to give players something to do. The environment is wonderful for exploring and players should make notes of what they've done to help get through some of the harder puzzles and challenges.
The one down-side of the game is the rather cumbersome (and, for a game featuring a college professor and a cryptologist as the main characters, unrealistic) combat system.
All in all, if you are a fan of the old Sierra and LucasArts type adventure games, I think you will enjoy this one.
Speaking of combat, in the middle of fights with security guards at the Louvre, I would continuously get pop-ups telling me which buttons to use. This was okay the first time, but come on, during EVERY fight? There were other annoyances like I couldn't open a door while holding a gun, but I couldn't drop it either. I had to restart my game to go through the door. Also, while walking the other person follows so close that you have to constantly keep trying to get out of the way.
Conclusion: I broke the DVD, stuck it in the box, and threw it away. I was going to resell it, but I wouldn't be that mean to someone. This is literally the worst game I have ever played. I would give it -5 stars. Yep, I hated it that much.
