Apr 24, 2011As an avid Lost fan, I got this game as a rental to see if it was any good or revealed anything about the TV series. I was more than disappointed. This is a game that is an embarrassment to me as a fan of the Lost TV series. It's clunky, poorly designed and although it looks quite good, the island is so 1-dimensional that you can rarely go off a set path. The characters were not voiced by their TV counterparts and you play as a nobody. You go around taking photos of the island and in the end it's just totally boring. This is one of the few games I cannot recommend anyone play, Lost fan or not. 1/5, just plain bad.… Expand
May 11, 2012This is a game that MIGHT be worth a rent if your a hardcore fan and very forgiving. However if you happen to have standards it will leave you either irritated or bored with only a easy 1,000gs completion to make the pain go away. Apart from offering no challenge, it never offers up any inside scoop to island secrets or character revelations. The new protagonist is dull, the voice acting is bad and the game mechanics border on clunky to laughable. Worth a rent if your desperate for more lost, but do so with the knowlege it's mediocre.… Expand
Dec 20, 2011Let's go straight to the bottom, Lost is basically is a lost of time you get when playing . Repetitive concept of taking of photo and doing nonsense, and, I understand that the series is interesting and have neat stuff. But when we talk about this game, you have three options : Kill yourself of boredom , break the CD or spit this review because the guy who reviewed this game, doesn't like it as much as you.… Expand
May 5, 2011This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. With no shadow of doubt, this is the single worst game I've ever played - and I'm counting the legendary Atari 2600 ET in that list. Primarily due to the complete lack of any effort made with regard to the source material. Lost is one of the best produced, most expensive TV shows there's ever been. This seems to have been phoned in by a couple of unenthusiastic interns who couldn't be bothered working on it until a few days prior to deadline and realised they had to actually produce an engaging storyline, plot and characters, none of which they succeeded in.
It has all the interactivity of an on-rails shooter. The ridiculousness of some 'plot points' goes beyond the banal (you can't get access to a new area because someone is standing in your way and won't let you, while there's a whole beach front of access), prior to finishing the game you find a large batch of items which normally you could trade or use, except there's nobody left to trade with and no need to use them. That's the level of design and thought that's in the game. None.
Sure as a Lost fan it's nice to see a few behind the scenes areas and rummaging around the places we've become familiar with in the series can be fun, but that's not the basis for any form of interactive entertainment.
In all, a tedious, linear, one note and pointless experience that was a thorough disapointment.… Expand
Jul 29, 2013the story was par for the course but it was not fun to play very limited linear story challenging puzzles.
It compliment the shows story mainly but still bites on the replay ability Beat once never played again and I'll lock it in a vault an forget after sometime passes or i watch the show.
