    I love it! It's a mixture of World of Goo, Braid, Lemmings and storybooks for children. The only problem I have is the Xbox 360 controller, and I would urge anyone who has a PC to play it with a mouse instead. The 360 controls work, and they won't ruin the great game experiance at all, but a mouse is smoother for this type of gameplay. Or just wait, and hope for it to land on I love it!

But as it is, I have to love it anyway. Great job! Expand

    great art style! Game play, story and character is unique too! Glad LucasArts is doing great stuff and getting back to their roots.

    This is a game that fans will probably like better than critics. It wants to be great and comes pretty darn close at times, but some gameplay frustrations hold it back. It sometimes feels as if your survival depends too much on luck. Still, this is a very pretty game with a very good soundtrack, cool artwork and a unique storybook feel.

    A very enjoyable, beautiful and engrossing game, despite it's flaws. For fans of games like Lemmings, Mario Vs Donkey Kong, Kirby's Canvas Curse and such. The gameplay is a strong mix of puzzler/platformer. But were it excels the most is the storybook style visuals and dreamscape tunes.

    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.

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.
