I love Lupin, not the game
27 October 2012
Summary: Horrible camera. Its so hard to even move, let alone actually play the game. I interface is awful. Whenever you bring up the menu in order to check inventory, switch costumes, its just cheaply made.
Summary: Monkey Punch's Lupin III has been a cultural icon in Japan for decades, so it only follows that with TV series', movies, action figures, etc. existing, video games would only make sense. While this is hardly the first Lupin video game, it's one of the first to hit American shores.
Summary: I recently heard about this game from a friend who knows that I like the Lupin III series. However, having played it, I can see why I had never heard of it before. I suppose for someone who is a more accomplished gamer than myself, some of the faults would be annoyances, rather than game-ending...
Summary: For those who are Lupin fans and even those who aren't, this is a great game. The voiceovers from the same people who make the cartoon are excellent. However, you must have quite a decent amount of patience to play this game. Some of the puzzles take hours to figure out.
Summary: This is a game really for fans only, and, for fans, it's wonderful. For casual game-playing fans of the spy/third (Ha! Pun!) person shooter sort genre, you'll probably want to check out a different title.
