    It's simply a solid addition to the inaugural batch of WiiWare launch titles that tries a few new things with some uninspiring results.
  2. LostWinds isn't something that will impress friends or provide hours of replay, but it's an enjoyable and enjoyably discrete experience that made me glad I downloaded it.
  3. I doubt it’ll get much talk time for “hardcore” gamers. It is a fun game, and it is a steal at 1000 Wii points. If you’re looking for a fun game that’s easy to start playing and the family would enjoy you can’t go wrong with this game.
  4. LostWinds is brimming with potential, but the result leaves a lot to be desired.
  5. With charming graphics and a great control scheme, this title is a premiere example of WiiWare titles that are all but cheap hand-me-downs. Controlling your character by manipulating the wind is great fun and easy to understand. This is a short experience though, easily being beatable in one sitting. No replay value whatsoever lowers the score of an otherwise great title that is definitely worth it's price tag.
  6. None of this will bother kids, who'll dig the game's ease, the non-threatening boss, and the chance to actually finish a game that's a fraction as long as say, Okami.
  7. LostWinds reeks of wasted potential.

    They didn't like it either. They wanted to play more interesting stuff on the iPad.

    Go figure. Quality game. Not.

    Really didn't think that much of it to be honest.

    The graphics are passable, but nothing special. Do yourself a favor, buy Zelda

    Do yourself a favor, buy Zelda Twilight Princess instead!
