Adventure Classic Gaming
Lucius is an adventure game with a horror theme that is squarely targeted at an adult game audience. The game features some impressive cinematics but is also marred by flawed gameplay. The premise of the game is admittedly bizarre: after all, you play as a child who is tasked to commit some gruesome murders in the name of the devil. Are you up to be the evil spawn and bring hell back to earth?
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. In my opinion, Lucius is a mediocre game that lacks the “je ne sais quoi” feeling we gamers know and love, that drives us forward, making us stay up at night for just one more chapter.
Rely on Horror
If you are either a fan of 90’s PC games (and can thus deal with inferior controls) or just very intrigued by the concept, then I can recommend getting this game right now. It does not disappoint. If you can’t really decide, then waiting for this game to drop down to $10 is probably better than taking a guess.
On ne savait pas trop à quoi s'attendre avec ce Lucius, et il est également assez difficile d'en parler, après y avoir joué. Car si le titre n'est pas foncièrement désagréable, ses nombreux défauts, comme sa grande linéarité, la relative simplicité des missions à effectuer ou ses problèmes d'ergonomie viennent quand même entacher notre expérience de jeu. Reste une ambiance un peu angoissante plutôt sympathique, et le petit bonheur fugace d'incarner un enfant totalement démoniaque !
