    Lost Kingdoms may not have much of a plot, but the battle system makes it a fine game worth the attention of all action/RPG fans.
  2. The urge to complete the card collection, to beat up on lowly demons with monstrously powerful cards, or to indulge in the two-player affair is enough to keep most people coming back for more.
  3. One of the most interesting and odd games that I have played in recent years.
  4. As an RPG, Lost Kingdoms lacks a lot of the depth, scope, and production values that makes the genre so compelling.
  5. A good game with a rough exterior.
  6. There’s some incentive to replay the missions (to attain better scores and complete your card collection) but when similarly priced RPGs offer 50+ hours easily, Lost Kingdom’s value for money has to be questioned.
  7. Barely saved only by its sense of strategy, Lost Kingdoms is a lost cause if you’re not into card games.

    This game is one of the most addictive games on the GameCube system. Sure it lacks alittle plot and Katia runs abit on the slow side but This game is one of the most addictive games on the GameCube system. Sure it lacks alittle plot and Katia runs abit on the slow side but overall, loved this game. I especially liked the way they integrated the music in the second to last stage. Get this game!

    I liked being a girl, the card system reminded me of Tarot Cards which was neat but I found the card system combat very distracting from I liked being a girl, the card system reminded me of Tarot Cards which was neat but I found the card system combat very distracting from actual game play and frustrating to figure out at first. Once I figured it out, it was easy to beat the game and it did not appeal to me for replay at all. I liked collecting the different cards but many seemed completely worthless in combat to me. I found the save system clunky & awkward too. Expand
