    Lost Sea is an overall fun survival game, but it has too many flaws that keep it from being as good as it could be.

    Overall, Lost Sea is a good amount of fun. It would likely be great for players who don’t take kindly to constant barrages of enemies, branching skill trees, and other relatively complex gameplay hurdles.

    The game can be fun to play for a few hours here and there but repetitiveness filters through to the presentation, too, with reused music and visuals that become draining after a while.

    The lack of multiplayer, the lack of save data and the lack of a defined genre prevent Lost Sea from achieving something bigger, as it's clear that it has some good ideas and solid foundations.

    Although Lost Sea provides fun, laid-back gameplay alongside a colourful, cel-shaded world, a lack of depth and some restrictive design choices may limit the scope of the game.

    Lost Sea harbors (see what I did there?) a good idea and bright visuals with flawed execution.

    Lost Sea has some good ideas. Exploring randomized islands alongside talented crewmates sounds exciting and it looks like an enjoyable swashbuckling adventure, but the annoying music, repeated areas, boring combat and terrible AI sank this game long before the ship reached its destination.

    The game sports great vsuals, challenging enemies, and very good musical score. Things that hurt the game are lack of save/continue,The game sports great vsuals, challenging enemies, and very good musical score. Things that hurt the game are lack of save/continue, worthless abilities (the dash will actually get you killed most times) and brain dead crew members. The character selection is nothing more than cosmetic. Having the characters with different stats or abilities would have added replay value. This would solve the other issue, in that your main character is very weak, gaining damage bonus only with ally crew members. Having the choice of a stronger character or faster character may have alleviated the frustration. Slow xp progression means a marathon play of the game to unlock most abilities. A story mode with xp progression and save/load feature would have been ideal, and perhaps a marathon mode that starts the player with a limited loadout (or even a choice of a few specific abilities) would better suited to appease both types of players, the 20 minute session or the 2-3 hour play through. All in all it is a game with a lot of good promise, and perhaps with a few updates could really be a solid title. Expand
