Lucius III review
by Mia Blais-Côté

Lucius 3, the most buggy game I played in 2019. XD
It's an open-world, of course, but if you do actions out of order, then your game is broken and you have to restart the current chapter. I had to redo two chapters twice because of that, so we have a "fake" open-world.

That's not counting bugs in looped dialog, characters getting stuck in a wall, black screens of death, buggy animations, and so on.

In order to get through the game, and avoid as many bugs as possible, I had to find myself a walkthrough, which spoiled my pleasure of discovering the story.

Speaking of the story, I don't know if there was a lack of budget, but everything is rushed to the end, and the 2 endings you can get are... well it's 10 seconds cinematics and then the credits. O.o.

I liked Lucius 1, Lucius 2 is a disappointment, the Demake is awesome, and 3... Bug Hell!
«Buggy as hell»
«Game over at last!»

Good Game, poorly packed! As a Fan of the Series it breaks my Heart to give such a Review, But unfortunately the Game didn't deserve more. Pros: Completion of the Story No Open End Cons: Graphic: Flickering Light Effects, Generally out of date, character Animations ugly, places too dark so you don't recognize where to go-runs extremely badly: Ruckler, Lags Kone Opportunities To interact with People-no Different Ways to kill your Goals--> Everything is prescribed to a bug without End, sometimes so bad that one remains nothing but a Reboot of the Chapter or the entire Plot-bad Story boredom of the First Minute of poorly implemented Open World ... The List could be continued forever, unfortunately. That was nothing, Shiver Games, Unfortunately:( If I were to give a Game fun Rating by School Grades. Then a ne 5-So No Buy recommendation from me, look at n Lets Play, you have more of it without rinsing down your Money in the Loo!

The Short Description: Rabbit Coordination Simulator 2018 The third Part of the Lucius series has now been released and after I didn't really like Lucius II, I still gave this Game a Chance. And what can I say, the Game is technically so unfinished that it really hurts. I liked the Story very much, the Killings are also nice to look at. Now the technical Problems that have caught my eye and destroy the Game: Translated Texts in German are often missing ("MISSING TRANSLATION"), also one Month after Release. Serious Translation errors in German! On the Map, the Gas Station is the Water Tower and vice Versa, and this also occurs with some Objects. What is this? The Person who was responsible for the Texts belongs fired, such Mistakes subvert at most Children. Again, everything after more than a Month still faulty. Some Items can be collected twice and three times. Long Loading Times with Blackscreen. Strong Framedrops, especially for Transformals. The Game does not manage to maintain a stable Frame Rate (from 1fps to 140fps everything happened, always nicely messed up). The Control when Flying is choppy. The Graphics of the Open World are coarse in distance and some Elements plop up just before (in my View, there may no longer be any more in 2018 ...). Interactions generally appear stiff and non-liquid, also due to the poor Frame rate. Please, Shiver Games, please. Sit down and revise this Game thoroughly again. It could be so cool and just the Text Errors could easily be fixed. I expect a big update from you at 6 a.m. at 6 A.m., otherwise Lucius will be at your Door. The Upshot is that despite the good Story Lucius III is by Far the worst Game in the Series. Causes are the technical Problems and the Text Errors, which I have never encountered in my Form before.
