GameVortex writes: "Lux-Pain feels like a game (through the first couple hours) that will unfold beautifully and expose some type of epic story. The reality is that Lux-Pain jumps from concept to executive without a firm sense of how the story can become more than a circus without some master plan. The game is a satisfying representation of what Harvey Birdman might look like if crossed with Resident Evil, as long as you understand that Lux-Pain is light on action and heavy on drama and atmosphere. Just don't pull on any particular plot thread, lest the entire fabric of the game unravel... Probably best as a rental".
