  1. If you played a previous Lost in Blue and just couldn’t get enough, this will certainly satisfy your craving. If you weren’t too into the last one, this entry is basically more of the same (and even a near-remake in most respects) with a few extra features thrown in, so you won’t be finding some revolutionary new direction for the series.
  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.

    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. Lost in Blue 3 is a fun game, especially if you fall into one of two categories: if you've never played a Lost in Blue game, or if you have played a Lost in Blue game and can't get enough of the same gameplay.
  5. The game is not very difficult, and as soon as players grasp the standard controls they should have no problem progressing through the game. Lost in Blue 3 does not deviate much from experience of the first two games. The game still provides a relatively fun experience, but nothing we haven’t seen before.
  6. Sadly, Lost in Blue 3 has lost it’s charm or sense of adventure that made the first game so refreshingly appealing to Nintendo DS owners.
  7. Games Master UK
    Hasn't changed much since 2 and still needs an overhaul of the partner AI. [June 2008, p.71]
  8. Lost in Blue 3 is one of those games that starts off well, but eventually you realize that its mundane elements are never rectified and it becomes a grind.
  9. Nintendo Power
    Everything is a struggle in Lost in Blue 3. [Apr 2008, p.90]
  10. Lost in Blue 3 recycles the series' gameplay mechanics, assets, and flaws.
  11. 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.
  12. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    Repeating the same mundane tasks every day so that I could do what I actually wanted to do--go exploring, which was great--really got to me. [May 2008, p.87]
  13. n-Revolution Magazine UK
    Does little to improve upon the franchise’s inherent faults. This is one series that should not survive to see a fourth outing.

    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 withI 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. Full Review »

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