  • Summary: Lost in Blue 3 marks the return of the original "survival adventure" game for the Nintendo DS. Guide one of four playable characters, each with their own hidden past and unique strengths, through exotic locales on a mysterious island while surviving the elements to stay alive. Work alone or cooperatively with other characters to gather food, explore the island, and hunt dangerous wildlife. Use a character’s abilities to dictate which path you’ll take to uncover the mysteries of the island and ultimately engineer your escape. [Konami] Expand

    If you've never played Lost in Blue 3 or any game like it, you ought to give it a try.
  2. The Lost in Blue series is still the most compelling and realistically punishing take on the excitement and hardships of survival on a desert island that videogames have to offer, even if it still has much room to improve.
  3. 67
    Though Lost in Blue 3 will probably never be anyone's first pick for their ideal "desert island game," it manages to be more enjoyable than the sum of its repetitious parts.
  4. 55
    There are two parts to Lost in Blue 3: the parts that are the same and thus boring, and the parts that are different and thus overly tedious.
  5. Everything is a struggle in Lost in Blue 3. [Apr 2008, p.90]
  6. You have to look after several "lucky" survivors who seem incapable of taking care of themselves. This nagging flaw, combined with dreary island exploration and only a handful of acceptable mini-games, results in a loss of interest and fun.

    I hadn't played the other Lost in Blue games, but did enjoy this one enough to see it through. But after I had finished to the end with the first character I lost interest in trying to play with the other three to see their story lines. Maybe in a few more months I will pick it up again and try another character. Expand

    The game was okay, but I found the game style repeated from the first 2.
