  1. It is innovative and uses almost all of the handheld’s non-standard features without seeming the slightest bit gimmicky.
  2. It's innovative and interesting, though it can be very frustrating when you can't quite think your way around a dilemma and there's no obvious answer.
  3. While the game isn't flawless, there's enough fun and charm involved to make it definitely worth playing.

    It's okay that the title's pace is slow and methodical, but it lacks the hidden dangers one would expect in a strange and unknown place. [Nov 2005, p.112]
  5. 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.
  6. Technically speaking, Lost in Blue is a very annoying, and often clumsy, but the emotions it often invokes - the feelings of hardship, reward and companionship - are, at times, second to none, making it very much worth the laborious effort. [NGC Pocket]

    It's at times annoying, but mostly just challenging, presenting American RPG players with a welcome, exciting, and unique new arc. [Jan 2006, p.89]
  8. Lost in Blue is an ambitious game that offers some quirky gameplay.
  9. As I like to repeat, if you have trouble with micro-management, Lost in Blue isn’t for you.

    It worries me a bit that I'm starting to enjoy all this tedium.
  11. This game tries to as accurately as possible replicate the feeling of being left for dead on an island. This means no tutorial whatsoever, so make sure you read those instructions before diving into this blue.
  12. 75
    Lost in Blue has its appeal, especially to those folks who enjoy the Harvest Moon series, or those who enjoyed Survival Kids on the GBC. There is comfort in repetition, and it's really not all that bad once you get the story rolling.
