By Peter C
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed playing this game, the plot was unique and interesting. Clearly the writers had very ambitious ideas when they formulating the plot, but in places it was overly ambitious, leaving me quite confused as the player.

At points it wasn't clear who the characters were talking about though and the interchanging between "He" and "She", really didn't help matters. Simply speaking I think their were too many characters for the writers to deal with, which ended up with untimely deaths and loose ends at the conclusion of the game as they were most likely rushing to finish it all.

This game is best when the main character, Saijo, is talking and interacting to his friends, where there are loads of witty one liners that will leave most people in stitches. All in all I would take this game with a pinch of salt, it is most definitly worth a play (especially if you can find it in a bargain bin, like I did), but beware that there is a number of flaws with the plot and story telling that really lets down the production.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dragged Down by Bad Translation 21 Jan. 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, Lux-Pain is what's known a 'visual novel', an interactive story often including moral/conversational choices that the reader can make for the primary character. To use a Western genre, this would be a point and click, so if you're looking for something with fight mechanics you're in completely the wrong place.
Lux-Pain is a pretty good game. The story's interesting and although I wasn't too sure on the 'slice of life' school based parts of it at first, I soon found that all the characters are interesting, funny and well-developed enough to make them worth it.

However, the dialogue can be pretty hit and miss. It's absolutely clear that the translators for this game were either not paying attention or weren't particularly good at English. There's quite a few mix-ups between 'he's' and 'she's', some words are spelt incorrectly and words such as numbers are often abbreviated or hyphanated in the middle of a word which looks horribly tacky.

BUT, the voice ators do go a long way to make up for this. Most of them ignore the exact words put in front of them to read and have produced their own version, and they've done a good job despite it not matching the text onscreen. The voice acting sounds unique to each character and very realistic, not the run-of-the-mill monotone a lot of other translated JRPG games have. But the game does lose points here too for having very few scenes narrated, and having some characters not even given a voice at all.

The game is interesting, the plot is good. It will only tax your decision making, so it's a great game to relax to. If you can ignore the bad translation and want an interesting story, give Lux-Pain a go!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent interactive novel! 9 Aug. 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first interactive novel style game that has kept my interest in the characters since Another Code,enough so for me to put in the 15 hours I needed to complete the game including still playing at 2am!
The only drawback to some is it is text heavy but it is more of a manga based story than a "game",however sometimes the interactive sequence can get a bit frantic,I highly recommend a screen protector for your DS,also the translation adds excellent comedy value from the typpos to the reference of male characters as "she" and vice versa,the game is supposedly set in America with Japanese/Chinese characters and in a town called Kiseragi!!! Pure comedy genius, play and enjoy!!
