Seattle Times Disses On Da Vinci Game

By now, odds are that you've read "The Da Vinci Code," seen the Tom Hanks movie, picketed about one or the other somewhere, or sued author Dan Brown. And you might not immediately think that the story — about an American professor and a French cryptographer racing to decipher clues that will shake the Catholic Church — lends itself easily to a video game.
