    New unique minigames and a gigantic island to explore makes Lost in Blue 2 an engaging purchase for anyone who can get past the daunting first few hours of extreme survival. However, the one-two combo of a companion who lacks any sort of survival competency and the required precise micromanagement of each character's vital stats can tempt even the most hardened survival buffs to snap their DS clean in half.
  2. The most significant obstacle to most peoples' enjoyment of the first game - namely, the over-dependant partner - has been removed, and so I really hope that Lost in Blue 2 will win a few new fans as well as delighting the old ones. There's a lovely and unique game in here, if you've the patience to find it.
  3. Well worth a go but be warned that the designers care not for the concepts of reward, relaxation and human fatigue. It's quite a commitment. [June 2007, p.52]

    Lost in Blue 2 does prove rewarding down the back stretch, and fans of Harvest Moon and similar games probably won’t have as much of a problem with the early going. This is a game that expects you to pay your dues, though, and most players will probably find that too high a price.

    Its enhancements over its predecessor are walled off, barriered behind the roadblock of frustration in the hours of investment it takes to even get to them. The numeral doesn't justify itself, and so spending the cash to buy this title can't really be justified either.
  6. Sure, you can play as either the boy or the girl now, but either way you're saddled with a worthless A.I. companion who has the audacity to get annoyed when you ask him or her to pitch in to survive. [May 2007, p.88]
  7. 30
    If it weren't for the torrid pace at which you're required to gather edibles, Lost in Blue 2 would be an enjoyable game. The developers obviously wanted to instill a sense of urgency, but really, all they did was rob the game of its fun.

    In the beginning of version one and two, i found that it is very hard to survive for those first couple of days. With your life points low, In the beginning of version one and two, i found that it is very hard to survive for those first couple of days. With your life points low, and not knowing where Amy (or Skye) is to make food for you, and you casn't go too far, because your stanima will run low, and if it goes down too low, your life points begin to drop. but after you finally get the hang of going through those first days, it gets to be a fun strategy game. People will probably spend a lot of time playing, but that's good, because many new games you get you usually finish in 2-3 days or so. This is MY opinion. (don't hurt me...) Expand
