  • Summary: Lucius is taken to the psychiatric ward of St. Benedict’s Hospital by unsuspecting caretakers. The Book of Revelation predicts the birth of a child that would end up ruling the world with an iron rod. The first part of this prophecy has been fulfilled. It is time to take care of the rest.

    Lucius II: The Prophecy is a much more fun experience than the original, but its flaws are pretty obvious.

    There is no need to be creative when killing enemies in Lucius 2 — the game is inhabited by certified idiots.

    While the mechanics definitely work better that in Lucius’ first killing adventure, the Devil’s son stumbles over bugs, clumsy UI and a total lack of atmosphere.

    Lucius II is a terrible videogame. It isn't fun and very simple in its action. And more important, it has a lot of bugs.

    Action adventure game below average, in which the only interesting thing is location and horror atmosphere. Everything else is generic, boring and full of design and technical errors.

    The awful bugs, lack of polish, boring story, and repetitive gameplay are gross enough. I suggest watching The Omen. There are less bugs, and it’s significantly shorter.

    ... Из огня он вышел целым и невредимым...

    Lucius II - достойный сиквел к 1 части. На этот раз нам предстоит окунуться в жизнь обычного душевно-больного пациента. На уничтожение нам дана больница Святого Бенедикта и небольшой городок Ладлоу. Здесь все зависит от нас, как мы решим, так и будет. Думаю, основная цель второй части всем понятна : Уничтожать все и вся на своем пути. Мы сами выбираем какие нам прокачивать способности, хоть поджигание, хоть телекинез, хоть контроль разума.

    В самом начале нас встречают очень " тепло " и мы оказываемся на нулевом уровне, а именно на обучении. Если называть самый худший уровень Lucius II, то им, конечно же, окажется обучение. В течение этих десяти минут нас познакомят с игрой, но сделают это ужасно скучно и занудно. После " интересного " обучения мы попадаем прямиком в игру, где нам показывают заставки, выполненные в стиле рисовки. Оригинальное решение, что сказать. Мы узнаем, что Люциус очень плохо себя вел и его ведут на шоковую терапию. Результат : куча убитых санитаров. Дальше, собственно, мы начинаем игру.

    Что касается геймплея, то, по моему мнению разработчики сделали правильное решение, превратив линейный квест в песочницу. Именно это и является одним из главных достоинств Lucius II. Что касается графической составляющей, то тут у меня претензий нет - все сделано красиво и качественно. Саундтрек был написан великолепный, который завораживает с самого начала. Что же касается реализации, то тут все хуже. Обильное количество багов хоть и забавляет, но иногда мешает хорошей и спокойной игре. Иногда хочешь убить жертву каким-то кровожадным образом, но не можешь, так как эта жертва застряла в стене, заглючила или вообще исчезла. Иногда происходящее поражает : Убил ты человека, пришла медсестра, оказала первую помощь, а когда поняла что пациент мертв... Просто ушла как будто ничего не случилось.

    Lucius 2 мастерски сочетает в себе несколько элементов разных жанров. От забавного момента с геями в туалете до отрезания головы вентилятором. Игра вышла слишком короткая, поэтому советую подольше задерживаться на каждом уровне.

    Как бы не старались Shiver Games, гениального продолжения у них не получилось, однако они сделали хорошую игру. Моя оценка 9/10.

Sadly this game is a buggy mess. The AI has to be the worst i have seen for years. Also i cant get past level 2 as the keys to a crucial room are slipping through the floor as soon as i kill the carrier. Great! Also every door you unlock throughout special events get locked again on reload, with no possiblitity to reopen them. If you saven in one of the rooms youre going to be stuck there forever. I cant understand companies who release their games in Alpha stage. Keep away from this Expand

    What pisses me off the most about Lucius 2 is that as it stands is almost the opposite of what was advertised. I don't think that only one orWhat pisses me off the most about Lucius 2 is that as it stands is almost the opposite of what was advertised. I don't think that only one or two ways to kill someone, or sometimes only one way qualifies as freedom to kill how you want. While the graphics have been upgraded, almost everything else has taken a huge step back. The powers are worthless, the inventory is too large and the audio issues are frustrating.

    Despite it's problems there is still some entertainment in the game, and it will last you four levels which is almost half of the game. The developers seemed to of just stopped caring at the start of part two as it is the most bugged, glitched and limited in freedom for the game. The final level is the nail in the coffin as it is clearly in a pre-beta state. You could make a game yourself about everything that is wrong with Lucius 2.

It was also completely linear to the point that if you didn't complete your "missions" in exactly the way the developers envisioned it, you'd fail it. Combine that with game breaking bugs, terrible game AI and unpolished development and the game was horrendous.

    Apparently enough idiots bought Lucius that the developers were able to afford to begin development on " Lucius II". In the newest version of the game, unlike the first one, it takes on more of a "Hitman" style of game-play, something that should have been core to the first game.

    It's unfortunate that, besides some of the game-play mechanics, the game still stinks of unpolished crap. The game is horribly buggy, the AI is as stupid as ever, a complete lack of polish, boring story and repetitive game-play. there are game breaking bugs that will prevent you from completing the game.

    Developers like this give the indie scene a bad name.
