Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure – Second Opinion

Getting Up is a tough game for me to score. I didn't think much of the concept initially, but within just a few minutes of playing, Marc Ecko's vision crystallized and I found that it was much to my liking.

The Da Vinci Code

Game Description: The Da Vinci Code is based on Dan Brown's best-selling novel and Ron Howard's film. A strange murder at Paris' famous museum, the Louvre, leads two investigators to a great secret hidden in the paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci. Explore massive conspiracies and shadowy groups—while solving mysteries and puzzles that go beyond anything you have seen or read. Elude danger and stay one step ahead of enemies that will stop at nothing to protect their secret.

The Da Vinci Code – Review

The Godfather is generally considered to be a better movie than a book, The Dead Zone is better served as a television show than any previous versions, and even though Battlefield Earth is one of the worst films ever made, it's still better than the novel it's derived from.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Game Description: Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the first third-person action-adventure game based on the international hit TV series. Players take on the role of Buffy Summers, a 17-year-old high-school student who must balance adolescent growing pains with the responsibility of being the Chosen One. As the slayer, Buffy eliminates vampires and other demonic creatures that threaten the world's existence. It's up to you to save the human race from being "drained" during this devilish time.
