Dec 5, 2010TLDR Version: This game is awful. Rent it, bang your head for a few minutes and move on with life.
The non-TLDR version: The greatest strength of the Internet is also one of its shortcomings. People with access to the internet can write whatever they want without facts to back it up. People who barely have an idea of how videos game were over the years can pick up a copy and get satisfied that a particular game meeds their mediocre standards and then write glowing reviews on the web. That's what you see from the other reviewers here.
Graphics: Mediocre at best - 4/10
Voice Acting: Very poor imitation of the original voices - 2/10
Storyline: Decent but weak and stretched way too much - 3/10
Gameplay and Control: Exceedingly annoying at times with invisible textures stopping you at key moments. Camera angle and movement is a pain to deal with - 2/10
Environment: Very poor. Very fixed and restricted paths and cannot explore anything beyond your immediate vicinity - 1/10
Ending - 1/10
The bottom line is this feels more like a fan based half-baked product instead of a professional video game (lol @ you Montreal Ubisoft). As to all the professional critic reviews here that gave this game a 70+, shame on you, grow a spine and adopt some standards.… Full Review »
Mar 22, 2014I picked this game for 7 dollars. And I got to tell you it’s pretty bad. So the premise is, you’re stranded on the island from Lost, but you’re not one of the TV serie’s characters (you are some other guy who by the way is probably the least likeable character of any video game in history). You need to find your way out and to do that you have to navigate through the jungle, fix electrical panels (a boring mini-game that you have to beat about half a dozen times) and do other pointless stuff.
The controls are the lousiest I’ve seen in a game. Doing something as simple as walking is a miserable experience. Navigating in the jungle is a pain in the a$$, the graphics are an eyesore and the voice acting sucks. Most of the action in this game is running away from the black smoke (you also get to fire two shots with a gun). I loved the TV series but as a game this has no merit. The cave mission was fun but that’s about it.
If you liked Lost and can get this for 5 bucks, go ahead. If not stay away, not worth your time.… Full Review »
