  1. The game contains bits of combat, Tomb Raider-ish puzzle solving, and environmental hazzards. [JPN Import; Mar 2003, p.63]
  2. 75
    Primitive and unpolished, but its relentless goofiness, perfect use of the license, and twists on the stealth-action genre make it worth playing anyway.
  3. A surprisingly rewarding and polished adaptation of the show. [Mar 2004, p.98]
  4. More fun to watch than it is to play. If you love Lupin, rent it for the story sequences. You'll be amused by those. But the gameplay is a lot less amusing, so don't expect the world from this title. Don't expect much at all.
  5. Sadly, the AI, combat, and graphics issues keep Lupin the Third: Treasure of the Sorcerer King from joining the classic ranks, but the main character's sense of humor and general style make the game worth a look.
  6. One of this season's best rentals. It's a short, but fun, little game that captures the spirit of the anime series that it's based on.
  7. The problem with Lupin is that the game is incredibly rudimentary: the control is slippery, the camera is frustrating and the AI leaves a great deal to be diesired. [Feb 2004, p.36]
