We shared with you earlier in the week we'd have a Lust from Beyond review up post its latest update, which fixes a number of issues punters were having with the game not long after its launch, and we've delivered on that promise with a spoiler-free look at a game that definitely challenges videogame norms and pushes pretty high boundaries.
We've said it twice as part of the review, but we'll triple down: the score was incidental and not meant in any way to be reflective of the content of the game, it's just where we landed when weighing it all up. But we'll understand if people give us a sideways glance.
Here's a snippet of what you could be lusting after:
As mentioned above, and befitting any homage to H.P. Lovecraft, Lust from Beyond challenges mortal perception through horror and notional ‘taboo’ concepts on planes of existence difficult to understand, yet tangibly baited through understood abstraction. In this case, lust. And it draws on art and perceived history to paint a comfortable appreciation of the importance of sex, eroticism, masochism and devotion where lust over the ages, and within myriad cultures, is concerned. It’s also how we, as mere mortals, can reach places like Lusst’ghaa and encounter otherworldly creatures, because we all share the same desires. It also helps that Victor is a so-called “Seeing” which gives him powers and makes him something of a beacon among otherwise inconsequential humanity, as far as trans-cosmic entities and their interests go.Click here for our full Lust from Beyond review.
