    This is the breakout, must-buy hit that WiiWare needed to justify its existence. LostWinds is a beautiful and unique exploration-based platformer that takes full and natural advantage of the Wii's control setup.
  2. Ultimately, though, Lost Winds is a wonderful little game, and a great promise of what’s to come.
  3. Despite the unfortunate length of LostWinds, it is a remarkably good game, an adventure with broad appeal that takes a simple idea and brings it to elegant fruition.
  4. Feels like a real-deal Wii title, so a purchase is a real no-brainer. [Aug 2008, p.71]
  5. In terms of longevity, LostWinds is no hurricane, but its quality is as refreshing as a cool breeze on a hot summer's day. Simply magical.
  6. 80
    This really is a mini-masterpiece.
  7. LostWinds is brimming with potential, but the result leaves a lot to be desired.
