          Pros

          • - Has some tie-ins to the book/movie
          • - Spacious rooms

          Cons

          • - Potential safety hazard
          • - Puzzles lacked direction

          Having read The Da Vinci Code, I was quite excited as to what this room had to offer, especially puzzle-wise. And after having a mediocre experience in The First Endeavour, I was really hoping for this room to be the one that would make us want to come back for more.

          So there are three rooms for this game, and each of the three rooms represent a different scenario…I think. There was a long introduction to this game explaining each of the three rooms, and in my tired state, I found it very hard to listen to the all of it. I didn’t find the décor overly impressive, nor did it help me to get immersed into the story. I wonder if it’s more impressive for those who’ve watched the movie?

          Onto the puzzles…was it another case of high expectations causing disappointment? I’m not sure. What I do know is that there was one puzzle that was a safety hazard, one of the puzzles was not reset properly, and there was a piece missing from another puzzle. We also felt that the puzzles did not follow a logical order – what was one of the first puzzles, we ended up doing towards the end, only to find that what it uncovered didn’t really help with anything, even though that was its intention.

          Don’t get me wrong, the room wasn’t completely bad. However, the positive aspects of it (e.g. there were a couple of creative puzzles) were overshadowed by the negative aspects that we experienced. We left feeling frustrated, and likely won’t be going back. But like I said in my review for The First Endeavour, this is just my personal take on it. By all means, check out what other reviewers have to say about it.
