      "This is a great game to play. This is the best place to purchase it and it's pretty cheap so it's the best of both worlds. It's a wonderful fantasy game and my children and I have had lots of hours playing this game, the only problem with it is it can be very addictive you don't want to stop once you've started."

      "There are a lot of RPG's where you can play the bad guy but Dungeon Keeper is one where it's based on you being an "Evil Lord". It's not exactly an RTS but it's a cult classic and pretty close to being what an RTS would have been at the time of its release. It's highly reviewed on GOG."

    "With this game, you get to get your Pinky and the Brain, tonight we're going to take of the world! game on. It's a fairly simple game, but there's something delightfully nefarious about being the one taking over the world instead of saving it" Read more

      "Rule the world and be an evil mastermind! If this sounds like you, you can't go wrong here. Numerous items and weapons you can add to your arsenal and lots of actions to drive the others nuts in the game (ever want to taunt a government agent? Go for it!). Definitely worth a look, if not a purchase."

      "I really wanted a PC game where I could be the bad guy. The best one I've found it Assassin's Creed: Rogue. Sometimes you just want to be evil and this game lets you do that. Try it out and find your inner villain. "

      "The premise of this game is kind of cool and so are the powers, although you should expect to have to sit through some pretty terrible writing, the story really is not this game's strong suit. The gameplay is fun, pretty satisfying gunplay and your powers spice things up a bit. The biggest issue I have with it is the price tag, for a 5 year old game $30 is a bit steep."

      "I gave Lucius a shot because steam says the reviews are very positive but honestly I cannot figure out why they are. This game could be a fun romp as a child horror movie villain but instead it is a confusing mess where you need a walk through or YouTube guide to figure out how to do anything (forget being creative) while dealing with voice acting that wouldn't pass in a straight to VHS film from the 90's.

At first the psychological implications were kind of touchy for me, but I think the program is really cool. The game seems like it's really built upon you and your personality which is sort of frightening, but I think this is a great game to play if you're interested in playing the villain, without an overabundance of violent graphics!"
