  1. It is innovative and uses almost all of the handheld’s non-standard features without seeming the slightest bit gimmicky.
  2. It is a perfect showcase of what's to come and although it is somewhat frustrating at first, it truly is a rewarding experience later on.
  3. Lost in Blue is an ambitious game that offers some quirky gameplay.
  4. Innovative, different, and oddly compelling. [Oct 2005, p.152]

    It sounds odd that we found ourselves yearning for more menial tasks and daily labor to do in a videogame, but when you're stuck on a desert island, boredom is as big a killer as the blazing sun and battering winds.

    It frustrated the hell out of me, though I found that it never lost its intrigue, and it's because of my desire to keep exploring that ultimately kept me forging onward.
  7. Remember the 30 day time limit in the original Pikmin and how amazingly stressful that was? Well picture that and multiply it by five. I almost felt like I was baby sitting and not getting paid. Boring, frustrating gameplay that will leave you in tears of anger.

    It's a fun game, but it does get repetitive sometimes. Has a bit of the feel of the Sims.

    fun, relaxing, slower paced game. you gotta think and plan.

This is a beautifully done game with original thinking and concept that only nintendo could think of and is perfected by the touch screen of the DS when you can actually spear fish with your stylus. It brings you into the game, the evolution of the tools you learn to make to make survival easier is fantastic, but you are also a babysitter for the game to which is where the patience comes in. Not only do you have to fend for yourself but for some useless girl with some moments of not useless, it also gives a real "honey i'm home" feel when she is in the cave to ask how your day was. Its lame but I've never been stuck on a island before, maybe that's how you act. This game incorporates strategic thinking and planning ahead so I can see the benefit of having someone useless to make the game harder. Anyway all in all I praise the creators for taking a risk on the game and gameplay because it will make this game legendary or flop. Expand

    This boring putrid garbage is more suited for mindless 6 year olds.
