The Game That Defines Mystery Games – Luxo
A Virus named Luxodetta has seemingly taken over the lives of everyone in Italy. With a cover of electro-swing music, this game has already captured the interest of gamers all around the world. The storyline is relatively simple: you are an investigative reporter on the verge of catching a serial killer – in this case, a highly skilled hacker who is responsible for several mysterious murders. The story line is captivating, and you’ll quickly get hooked on playing Luxo due to its addictive elements.
If you haven’t played Luxo before, you’d better start with the free demo first. The free demo will give you a taste of the game’s mechanics, and you can get a good idea on how to control your character, manage inventory, and take down enemies with a variety of weapons. If you like what you see so far, you can buy the full version of Luxo for the price of just downloading the free demo. But if you’re a true videogame fan, then you’ll be happy to know that the full version is just as polished as the free version.
What sets Luxo apart from other online games is the fact that it’s not a first person shooter. Although there are several action packed shooting games available today, none of them offers the real thrill that this one does. In fact, you might be wondering why I mentioned ‘real’ thrill. The reason is that, aside from the graphics that are provided by the game engine, the real thrill lies in the storyline. With this game, you get to explore the crime scenes and figure out what really happened during the crimes committed.
As a real detective, you’ll have a lot of options when choosing the clothing and accessories you’ll use in your investigation. The game also comes with a number of interesting characters, including some Italian politicians, who you’ll meet during your investigations. Another cool feature of the game is the’Crimes against Women’ option, which lets you play as either a man or a woman, and solves crimes committed by women only. This is probably best seen in the PC version, where you can solve the case with a female detective.
If you’ve played other detective games, you’ll understand what I’m talking about when I say that most of them leave a lot to be desired when it comes to realism. This one has all the elements you’d expect from a fully fledged investigation, with plenty of interviewees that will give you more details about the crime. And because the investigation is international, you’ll also have access to other countries’ cases. If needed, you can even choose to travel to another city to perform your investigation. Luxo is the best detective game around, because it delivers on its promise of uncovering every bit of information you need to solve the case.
So, is Luxo worth the price of admission? Well, that all depends on what you plan to do with it. If you just want to play a couple of games, that’s fine. However, I wouldn’t recommend playing it if you’re planning to download the game for free. It’s just not worth it.
