Lucius

  • Summary: Being the bad guy is typically more fun than a whiter-than-white hero. They get all the good speeches, the more extravagant plans, and commonly have far better dress sense. Over the years, some games have promised all the devilish glee of villainy, but regularly fell short of the mark, usually too afraid to let you be a truly unfettered bad guy.

Lucius by flotsam

GameBoomers

  • Excerpt: I should have loved this. The six year old spawn of Satan treads the halls of Dante Manor dealing death to the occupants at the behest of his father. Not in any old straightforward way either – death can come in all sorts of dreadful ways and a lot of them are present here. As the deaths pile up, the living unravel, and we all spiral down into the depths from which daddy came.

  • Conclusion: Lucius is an awful game and one that should be avoided like the number 666.
  • Pros: An interesting idea and take on the puzzle genre.
  • Cons: Awful logic, terrible puzzles, amazingly poor story, stifling linearity and complete lack of ingenuity.

  • Conclusion: There’s a lot of content on offer for the reduced price, and Lucius will certainly appeal to puzzle enthusiasts who want a darker edge to their adventuring, or murder enthusiasts who’d like to give their brain a work out rather than their stabbing arm. The devil’s certainly in the details, just don’t come crying when the mechanical side of evil turns out to be its own kind of tiny hell.

  • Excerpt: In this adventure game from Shiver Games , we follow the eponymous Lucius, who, at the behest of his father Lucifer, must murder the residents and staff of his home at Dante Manor without drawing attention to himself and his demonic heritage. The game borrows heavily from the movie The Omen , and the idea of getting to play as the archetypal Evil Child and arranging elaborate murders á la Saw or Final Destination is fantastic.

Lucius Review (PC)

Softpedia
1 December 2012
  • Conclusion: We have an evil child, with an out-of-the-ordinary set of skills, who kills for power in the name of the Devil. We have a huge, detailed house filled with unsuspecting victims that are just ready to blame each other for the mysterious chain of murders. With a more flexible plot, wittier character dialogue and a better ending, this game could have been a real “blockbuster” and remind us of its Hollywood inspiration sources.
  • Pros: Interesting game concept, Eerie atmosphere and creepy characters, Play as the Anti-Christ, Lots of puzzles to solve
  • Cons: Very linear, no replay value, Challenges are sometimes very hard to solve without hints, The chore system is boring, The ending is quite disappointing and seems forced, The saving system is annoying at best

  • Pros: Finally figuring out how to get that woman to climb into the bath so I can electrocute her!
  • Cons: Why is Satan's son involved in a boss fight?

  • Conclusion: A promising enough idea, Lucius shoots for the depths of hell – but poor execution lands it merely six feet under.

  • Conclusion: But if the premise appeals to you, there is quite a bit to like here. Clearly the game has its flaws, and as such I can't recommend it to just anybody, but neither is it a bad game. There are some truly memorable experiences to be found in Lucius, some morbidly funny, some horrific and disturbing. For patient gamers who are forgiving of some clumsy design and sketchy production values, controlling the Son of Satan can be darkly compelling.

  • Excerpt: On the 6th of June, 1966, a boy was born. His name is Lucius. On his sixth birthday, he discovered that he is the son of the devil. Playing as Lucius, you are tasked by your father Lucifer to reap the souls of the livings around you, without raising suspicion that you are the evil doer behind the murders. Lucius grows up in a life of luxury. He lives in a large manor, with lots of rooms and many servants. He even has his own private teacher.
