Thanks to Lace-Mamba.com for supplying us with a copy of “Lucius”! We greatly appreciate it.
So, if you’ve ever seen the Omen and liked it then you’ll love this game. You play as a child called Lucius. Lucius was born on June 6th, 1966…If you did the math that is 666! Lucius has been given the job of the Anti-Christ. Lucius gets a visit from his father on his 6th birthday and during his visit Lucius does his father’s bidding. Lucius ends up going on a killing spree at Dante Manor which is his home.

The game has 9 separate chapters which in the beginning of each chapter you are given a voice-over and notebook on your next target. Upon completion of your kill, you are visited by Lucifer to gain new powers and make old ones more powerful. Combustion, telekinesis, and mind-control being some of the powers. This gives you a lot of power and most of the kills are funny, morbid, and very entertaining. As you progress to the game, aside from your father giving you power you gain experience which can be used towards powers.
The game could have been a bit more scarier but since you are the evil character in this story there isn’t much horror to be had. You are simply a tool of the devil and it is your job to serve your father by killing a bunch of people. It would have been nice to get scared a bit but overall doesn’t ruin the game. One thing that I loved about moving around in the game is that world is filled with details and the environment is pretty big. Can become tedious when doing missions but I love games that give you more than you expected. This helps you play the game longer; you’re not stuck playing the game and an hour goes by and you are already 70% done with the game. Long games are fun and I love that!
Graphics are not bad and but can be a bit unrealistic and lighting is a problem in certain areas. The cut scenes are entertaining and I one of things I looked forward while I played the game. I love playing games and little videos pop up here and there. It gives the story more meaning and helps you get sucked in.
The music in the game is very smooth, and weird at times. The music employs violin crescendos, cellos, and orchestral choirs that are common of the horror genre. I love this kind music and only adds to the game. Just like the videos, it helps you feel the story and get drawn in.
Overall I enjoyed the game and it is worth playing. If you love horror games that scare you off your seat then this game might not be for you, but if you’re looking for a challenge with a bit of puzzles mixed then I encourage you to get this game. Like I said, Lucius is worth playing and I assure you won’t regret it.
I love movies and games about the anti-Christ as they are always inventive and fun to watch or play. This game filled that need.
Vast world, and lots of stuff to do and find made this game worth wild. Cut scenes and music added to its charm and helped you get sucked into the story.
Story Line: 9/10
What’s not to love about the son of Lucifer going around killing people.
Graphics could’ve been better as lighting had been a bit of a problem from me, but overall alright.
Excellent music, awesome instruments playing in the background…Everything you’d expect for a game of this genre.
Replay Value: 6/10
The story was good and the game was fun to play but not sure if I’d play again. Maybe in the future.
Overall excellent game! I really enjoyed it and I thank Lace-Mamba for giving this me this great game!
