Despite these minor gripes about the camera and the game's A.I., Treasure of the Sorcerer King is a good gaming experience and an exhilarating encounter for any fan of Lupin the Third. [Mar 2004, p.64]
If it weren't for the game mechanic issues and the incredibly short length (5-8 hours total), Lupin would be a solid game. But simplicity in a stealth game, coupled with some Forrest Gump AI, hits the game in the breadbox.
There's really not very much to praise about Lupin the Third, due in no small part to some rather badly implemented enemy artificial intelligence, an equally unfortunate control scheme, and some generally lacking production values.
