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

    The graphics are passable, but nothing special.

    Do yourself a favor, buy Zelda Twilight Princess instead!

    Yikes, really didn't like it at all. Although that's just me - I really bought it for the kids.

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

    Go figure. Quality game. Not.

    Here's a game that proves with smart play mechanics and a beautiful visual style that developers can do so much with 43 megabytes, let alone the disc space available for full Wii games. The game's got a fresh gameplay hook, mostly tight controls, surprisingly clean and polished graphics and perfectly peaceful melodies.
  2. A stellar start to the WiiWare's catalog, LostWinds sports great production values, charming atmosphere and delivers a calm, relaxing experience that makes good use of the Wii remote's pointer controls.
  3. LostWinds is a great example of what can be achieved on WiiWare. By combining a few simple gesture-based controls within a tightly focused platform-puzzling framework, Frontier has created a mini-masterpiece at the first attempt.
