  • Summary: LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is a sequel to the award-winning WiiWare launch title LostWinds. Enril the Wind Spirit returns to protect and guide young Toku by powering his jumps, aiding his glides and smashing his enemies. An evil adversary binds the fate of Toku's mother, Magdi, and the ancient Melodia civilization. To save Magdi, Toku and Enril must face new foes, enlist friends old and new, and wield incredible new powers - including the ability to switch the very seasons themselves - as they explore the diverse, richly interactive Chilling Peaks and Melodia City areas of the magical land of Mistralis. This enchanting, exhilarating, explorative game play experience is bursting with new ideas that make exceptional use of the Wii Remote controller. The awesome power of the Wind is back in the palm of your hand. Expand

    A spirited platformer that shouldn't be missed by fans of the genre. Fire it up, lean back, and let yourself drift.

    Featuring much improved controls and a more robust story, Lost Winds 2 is everything we could have hoped it would be.

    Lostwinds 2 evolves the enjoyable formula of the first chapter introducing better controls and graphics. There's still something that doesn't work, sometimes, with the touch screen and the frequent backtracking could not be appreciated by someone, but the game is still delightful, simple and poetic like a little fairy tale.

    LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias offers a varied and beautiful game world, never frustrating puzzles and a smart way to take advantage of touch controls.

    LostWinds2 is remarkably well-suited for iOS, and the game remains as nice and fresh as it was in the Wii.

    A relatively successful attempt to liven up a (still) mediocre game.
