Pelit (Finland)Nov 15, 2012The Finns decided to make an interactive version of the Omen. Playing the spawn of Satan is certainly refreshing, but unfortunately the game fails to grasp it's promising premise. Kiddie version of the Hitman isn't scary, but not very funny either. [Nov 2012]
PC Master (Greece)Feb 6, 2013Lucius’s main premise is amazing. But the execution could have been way more solid. It limits the player, it’s ruthlessly and unjustly difficult in some cases, the characters pale and the graphics fail to impress. Lucius will be remembered as a great idea that “could have been”. [December 2012]
Nov 10, 2012While the question of whether it's a good idea to put players in the role of a dead-eyed mute psychopath is open for debate, it's undeniable that Lucius's developers have captured the feel of their inspiration perfectly. There are missteps that keep the game from truly excelling, and the story is serviceable at best, but Lucius provides a unique horror gameplay experience, and any hardcore fans of the genre owe it to themselves to give it a look, provided they have strong stomachs.
Nov 7, 2012This adventure game is unorthodox. It has a controversial theme along with its inconsistent gameplay. The creators have failed to fulfill the original concept, nevertheless all of you the old B-horror movies lovers are going to have fun. Besides, if you love playing the "wrong" side having sadistic tendencies, there's no time to hesitate.
Apr 23, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Lucius is amazing. It is about a devil child who has to do missions for his father (the devil). I love how you can just roam around the house, doing different tasks.

Nov 3, 2012Since my initial review, the developer has released a patch and is interactive with the community to trouble shoot and improve the gameSince my initial review, the developer has released a patch and is interactive with the community to trouble shoot and improve the game overall on Steam. This effort merits a higher score, therefore, it's a B-Movie with a grade of B-. It's has the whole creepy evil kid thing down very well. The graphics and video shorts I think are well done, the sounds adequate and the house has a creepy vibe to it. Although the lip sync issue is pretty bad in the English version. It reminds me of an interactive movie, the puzzles aren't too terribly difficult to figure out and its fun poking around the house and collecting items, but extremely linear -- its not like Lucius is going to do something that is not in the script or get into much trouble running around wielding a wrench in his hands without question by the adults. For that matter, the chores are pretty much more of a 'quest' than actual consequences if you continue to ignore the adults around you. It would be nice if some dark humor was intermixed with the items you can interact with, to make it more like a Monkey Island type of experience. The house members and staff are pretty much a three line conversation deal. What carries you along is the plot of what Lucius might end up doing next and how he is going to take out the next person in game. I will say the Steam achievements seem to be the only thing to pop-up unexpected. Reminds me alot of the Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth -- if you are a fan of Lovecraft, it works well enough. With that said, if you like the old Omen movies or B movie horror films, you will enjoy Lucius more than most and is worth the money.… Expand
Mar 12, 2015Ok, before i say anything. I do believe that god and all that exists and same goes for the underworld/hell and whatnot. But i'm not aOk, before i say anything. I do believe that god and all that exists and same goes for the underworld/hell and whatnot. But i'm not a religious person. That's not a chocker considering i like to blow up thing in a similar fashion to a terrorist but alass, let's get this game pinned down to what it actually is: A satanic game.
I mean, it's never easy to talk about a game in which you collect souls from innocent beings (well, mostly) and lend them right over to the devil in exchange for more power and abilities.
Gee, i wonder why so few games are made in the spirit of straight-up satanic murder. Hurr durr.
Anyways; in this game you do.... what i just said, really.
You toy around with your surroundings, destroying machinery, rig special environments to work in your favor, etc. The game relies on puzzles which i don't really like. Cuz' i suck at dem puzzles u no wat am sayan'?
That's basically it! i mean, i could go into detail about the puzzles and so on, and i'm gonna' do it to brighten up your mind. You have abilites such as mind control, telekinesis, and visa versa. You use mind control on weak-minded people.
An example would be the one case right right here: *spoilers. You trick a woman into thinking that her love interest loves someone else... the hardcore way of course. After that she goes to the balcony weeping and her mind has weakened from this... "occation", which makes it easier to mind-control her. And then you know;
Balcony + mind-control = Swan dive
However, puzzles tend to be very hard and not giving any direction as of what you're supposed to do.
I.... f*cking.... hate..... PUZZLES!!1!!!
Alright, alright. Let's round this up.
1) The game manages to be a rather calming experience, which is nice.
2) The soundtrack doesen't loop, instead it switches to another tune once the previous one has ended. It's also very nice.
3) Mechanics and physics are a nice touch.
1) Graphics are laughable.
2) Puzzles are very hard and not very "rewarding"
3) The game is very repetetive and boring sometimes.
4) Jacksh*t sequel (this doesen't really matter)
Please don't beat me to death.
This game gets the score: "It was only ok, dude"… Expand
Mar 6, 2015Game is.. okay? Possibly even meh.
Very short, like the mood and music and graphics are also okay if we won't count cutscenes, gore howeverGame is.. okay? Possibly even meh.
Very short, like the mood and music and graphics are also okay if we won't count cutscenes, gore however is better looking than animations for characters anyway.
This game is linear, a poorly made Hitman clone without any freedom to choose your way to kill people. However the killing part is exactly what bothers me in this game, no clues on how to progress your objective, sometimes way of killing your family members can be ridiculous. Either it gets very hard or it's easy as pie.
This game might be good for speed runners i guess.… Expand
Oct 29, 2012Cool concept, bad execution. It's like a really bad point 'n click game in 3rd person. You try and guess what the hints are trying to tellCool concept, bad execution. It's like a really bad point 'n click game in 3rd person. You try and guess what the hints are trying to tell you, you wander around until you find the object they want you to find, then you use the object in the way they tell you to. Not worth spending money on since most of the gameplay is just you walking around until you find something to interact with.… Expand
Jun 6, 2013The worst game in history... This game makes even games from back in the early 1920's or so look far more better. This game has satan writtenThe worst game in history... This game makes even games from back in the early 1920's or so look far more better. This game has satan written all over it. You don't explore much except areas and objects that will be used in crime scenes/murder cases. The mission's are the same, you wake everyday to kill another person that lives in the house.. The tutorials are very helpful and physics seem good. The TPS is one of the setups i like but thats it. I found this game very offensive to the amish since people in it wear the same clothing as the amish so i give it 0/10… Expand
