  • 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.

  • 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.

Lucius has an intriguing premise, but some not-so-original adventure-game flaws.

  • Summary: It ain't easy being the Antichrist. In adventure/puzzle game Lucius, you experience the trials and tribulations of being the firstborn son of the big red guy with the horns. As you might expect given the young lad's pedigree, when he suffers growing pains, they involve a sizable body count.
  • Pros: Antihero Antichrist protagonist is a great concept, Subtly creepy with splashes of serious gore during the murders, Very challenging, with a lot of exploration needed to solve the murder puzzles
  • Cons: Kills are all linear, Puzzles involve pixel hunts through a huge, heavily detailed mansion, Needs more overt black humor to offset the grim nature of the storyline, Very long load times

Game Review: Lucius [PC]

  • Excerpt: Lucius, son of the devil, is roaming the halls of his family’s mansion murdering people left and right. It’s a fun idea for a game, and shockingly one that hasn’t been overdone. But does Lucius pack enough punch to warrant a purchase?
  • Pros: - Good ideas
  • Cons: - Poor execution

  • Summary: Lucius é um caso absolutamente típico de uma ideia mal aproveitada. Com certeza a indústria de games necessita desesperadamente de propostas “imorais” que nascem da mais pura liberdade criativa — algo que se vê nas telas dos cinemas há muito tempo.

  • Excerpt: O conceito é sem dúvida bem introduzido e (teoricamente) interessante. Há que reconhecer a aposta por parte do estúdio finlandês, Shiver Games, que nos apresenta uma história original, com um argumento macabro e um grafismo visual que explica bem a classificação para maiores de dezoito anos.
  • Pros: Ambiências bem recriadas | Banda Sonora adequada | Originalidade da história
  • Cons: Grafismo desactualizado| Jogabilidade problemática | Demasiada linearidade no argumento, que retira liberdade de movimentos ao jogador

  • Conclusion: Läßt man ethische Aspekte außen vor, hat Lucius eine Menge guter Ansätze und jemandem, der diese Art der Präsentation mag kann es durchaus gefallen. Doch ein Großteil der Spieler wird sich an deren Umsetzung eher stören. Insofern ist der Titel nur ausgesprochenen Horror-Fans zu empfehlen.
