Code Lyoko: Quest for Infinity (Wii, PS2, PSP) follows the events of the fourth season of the Code Lyoko TV series (reviewed here). If you don’t know the summary or haven’t watched the TV show, the game will probably be confusing in parts.
The ESRB rating is E.
X.A.N.A. has successfully possessed William and destroyed Lyoko, but with the virtual world gone, where is the virus getting its power? Jeremy and Aelita manage to reprogram Lyoko and Sector Five, as well as create the Skidbladnir, a virtual ship capable of traveling the Digital Sea. While the Lyoko Warriors are exploring the Digital Sea, they stumble across their answer: Replikas of Lyoko are scattered around Earth, and each time X.A.N.A. creates a new one, its strength grows. Now the Lyoko Warriors are in a race to finish off X.A.N.A. before it finishes them off. The final battle has begun!
In Quest for Infinity you play as Lyoko Warriors Odd, Aelita, Ulrich, and Yumi, with Jeremy as your helper. You can move freely between Kadic Academy’s courtyard, where you can gather gossip from the students and faculty, check the goodies you’ve gathered, and change the options for the game, and the factory, where you can upgrade your characters and virtualize onto Lyoko.
I can’t comment on the Wii or PSP versions of the game, but using the controller for the PS2 is simple enough. The only low point is the lack of camera control (which I had gotten used to when I played other games like Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker [review] and Rachet and Clank). This can be annoying, especially when battling or looking for goodies.
Quest for Infinity follows the same basic storyline as Code Lyoko: Fall of X.A.N.A. (reviewed here), but with a lot more details, a freestyle battle system, and much better graphics. (This isn’t to say that I didn’t like Fall of X.A.N.A.; on the contrary, I enjoyed it as much as Quest for Infinity.) As with Fall of XANA and Code Lyoko (the Videogame), I would recommend this game to any fan of the Code Lyoko series.
