    This game is only for lost fans, the game is pretty good as a lost episode but could have been a lot better. I laughed my way trough the first few levels then it started to grow on me, but not all that much. The lost characters don't really like me too much other then Kate, not that I had any choice that I could tell and that made me start to get angry at Jack Lock and Siead*.

I would only recommend Lost: "via domus" to lost fans that don't mind a trudge through a not so great adventure game to get at the lost content. I gave this a 7 because I liked the story. Expand

    This game is really not very good at all, but the score I'm giving it is due almost entirely to one thing: an approach to the "amnesiac player character" that has not been done before. As with the show itself, the compelling flashbacks reveal more and more of the character until you discover that you may not be all that you wish you were. This parallel to the show's overallThis game is really not very good at all, but the score I'm giving it is due almost entirely to one thing: an approach to the "amnesiac player character" that has not been done before. As with the show itself, the compelling flashbacks reveal more and more of the character until you discover that you may not be all that you wish you were. This parallel to the show's overall structure, in (excruciatingly short) miniature is an innovative way to get the emotional appeal of the show across in a (pathetically) brief time frame.

    In short, this would make a really great game.

    PS Hurley's comment when you snap out of a flashback is worth the price of admission for the die-hard fan.

    A very poor take on the show. Some of the characters personalities, most notably Kate, are nothing like they should be. All the references to events in the show feel very contrived and forced. A lot of the game doesn't even make sense, at one stage you are given a dharma lighter from Michael, yet at this stage of the story they haven't even come in to contact with dharma.

Graphics are pretty good in places, jack's face is pretty good but overall the graphics are nothing special. I love lost, i don't love this. Expand

    One gets the feeling that the show's creators are trying to wash their hands of Via Domus, awkwardly placed as it is in the series' now-sprawling legendarium. But above and beyond that, fans should approach it as a lark; it's not very accomplished as a game.

    At least it only takes five hours to reach the conclusion.
  3. This short adventure game nails the feel of both the show and the island on which it's set, but struggles with some of the characters.
