    I bought this game determined to like it because of the visual style and to support a developer trying something different. Bad move. At first you'll be wishing the game had a fast forward button as Sofi trudges along, by a dozen levels in the game has you hopping madly across scattered floating blocks over top of a pit of death while giving you completely random and oh-so-often I bought this game determined to like it because of the visual style and to support a developer trying something different. Bad move. At first you'll be wishing the game had a fast forward button as Sofi trudges along, by a dozen levels in the game has you hopping madly across scattered floating blocks over top of a pit of death while giving you completely random and oh-so-often useless tools to work with. Absolute frustration and buyers remorse quickly followed. A truly terribly designed game. Expand

  1. Lacking the intuitiveness that the game demands, Lucidity is a product that feels incomplete, despite the polish on the visuals. Perhaps with a patch the system can be salvaged, but until then, it’s best to steer away.
  2. With a beautiful, dream-like style Lucidity grabs you almost instantly. But while playing it slowly loses its grip. The concept knows too many flaws and irritations to keep you fascinated and the story is too minimal to provide a counterbalance.
  3. Lucidity is an interesting experiment, a beautiful indie-flavored game and a welcome addition to Xbox Live’s crowd of old arcade game ports. Gamers who appreciate metaphor and meaning will certainly find much to enjoy here. It’s just a shame that it isn’t more fun to play.
