Summary: This game simply is boring and almost sad. I like the idea of the whole survival aspect but all you really end up doing is constantly looking for food (which the characters don't like), resting (really fun...), stopping for water, and trying to figure out why you bought this game. It can be sad in the respect that your characters always seem to be slowly dieing and all you can do is find random food items, cook and eat them ( doesn't help them much), and then going out...
Summary: I got this game expecting an open ended style game. But there really is just one way to succeed. It was difficult at first to find the balance you need to survive but it wasn't fun enough to stick it out. The actual game play is clunky and the graphics are poor.
Summary: maybe its just me but im finding this game impossible.you are cast on a desert island and need to light fire,find food and cook and eat it,trouble is,you have to eat every 30 seconds or you start to die! the minute you find food you must rush back to the cave you shelter in and cook it.unfortunatly you need a fire that goes out when you leave the cave,so you need twigs,but you start to starve while piking up the twigs,i cant get past the eat or die stage so i give up on...
Summary: Needed lots of SAVE's. If you save and your levels are down low etc. your stuck, so you have to start from the beginning, this game needs hints, for it to work. One of the very few I've not finished, which if improvements were made I would of completed. Tried cooking mushrooms, to survive but would not work, needed hint as to what else I could of done. Hope Lost in Blue 3 is better.
Summary: I'm so disappointed with this. Like a previous reviewer, I thought this would be exactly my type of game - and it would, if I didn't die every five minutes. I'm sure it's perfect for skilled gamers (which I'm not) but personally I prefer games which allow you to use your brain and skills without imposing a crippling energy scale or similar which constantly needs replenishing.
Sadly marred by ridiculous food/water/energy levels

Summary: This is exactly the sort of game I thought I would love. The story line is great. However Ive only had this game 3 days and its driving me nuts already. You have to explore the island to get any further in the game, yet the characters food, water and energy levels plummet spectacuraily every time you leave the comfort of "home" so it makes it near impossible to get far without dropping dead! It totally ruins the game because of this.
