  1. A little Lost goes a long way with diehard fans. So, while I wished there were some deeper gameplay moments or a longer adventure (the game clocks in at about seven hours), I couldn't imagine, as a Lost fan, not playing this game and loving what it has to offer.
  2. For a fan of the series it may be great to explore the locations and talk to well known characters, but even the greatest atmosphere is going down the drain if the lack of enthusiasm of the developers is so obvious. Sloppily created missions, repetetive riddles and unnecessary howlers in design make it difficult to enjoy the game.
  3. If you have the choice, check that you're really a huge fan of the show by reciting Hurley's winning lottery numbers, and then either play Via Domus on a PC or rent it.
  4. Adventure game fans have come to expect a lot more than this, and fans of the show, while they may enjoy this extra chapter of the story, are not likely to get their money's worth.
  5. Folks who have been watching the show from the first episode won’t find any new answers about the island, and those used to a more robust adventure game experience will be put off by the boring, simplistic game play.

    One gets the feeling that the show's creators are trying to wash their hands of Via Domus, awkwardly placed as it is in the series' now-sprawling legendarium. But above and beyond that, fans should approach it as a lark; it's not very accomplished as a game.
  7. A game that offers all the TV characters but gives you impersonators for the voices is a cheap, nasty rip-off. That is Lost Via Domus. Avoid it like you would Season 4 spoilers.

    I'm actually shocked to see that low critic scores for this classic.

As i was hardcore fan of the show and also hardcore gamer in 2008, this was one of my most anticipated video games of 2008. It wasn't perfect and had some annoying stuff, but it also had tons of good stuff. Graphics were really good for 2008 game, specially on pc. It had all the major locations from the tv show and most characters. It wasn't 90/100 but it wasn't 50/100 either. Expand

I laughed my way trough the This game is only for lost fans, the game is pretty good as a lost episode but could have been a lot better. I laughed my way trough the first few levels then it started to grow on me, but not all that much. The lost characters don't really like me too much other then Kate, not that I had any choice that I could tell and that made me start to get angry at Jack Lock and Siead*. I would only recommend Lost: "via domus" to lost fans that don't mind a trudge through a not so great adventure game to get at the lost content. I gave this a 7 because I liked the story. Expand

As with the show itself, the compelling flashbacks reveal more and more of the character until you discover that you may not be all that you wish you were. This parallel to the show's overall structure, in (excruciatingly short) miniature is an innovative way to get the emotional appeal of the show across in a (pathetically) brief time frame.

    In short, this would make a really great game.

    PS Hurley's comment when you snap out of a flashback is worth the price of admission for the die-hard fan.

    It's is a licensed game so it is bound to be rubbish it usually is always sometimes a bad idea to turn tv shows into video games.
