Conclusion: Not a bad game if you like lost but just as confusing as the tv series. approx 8-10 hours game play. All you do in the game is walk about the island completing various clues and talking to passengers from flight 815. If you want an action packed game this isnt the one for you.
Excerpt: We all know by now that the majority of film-to-game adaptations don't tend to push the medium all that close to its limits, but an increasing trend of late has been for developers to have their turn with TV series adaptations.
Summary: This game is terrible. Most of the game is basically a walking sim, just following waypoints around till you get to your destination. They have managed to make this a little more tedious by forcing you to stop to wait for some smoke to go past every 15 steps.
Fans may enjoy more stories from the island, but that's about all there is to enjoy.

Excerpt: Lost has finally returned to our screens, and no doubt you're just as confused as I am with where the plot is going. Thankfully you can now fill in some holes, or just make yourself more confused than ever, by playing through Lost: Via Domus.
Excerpt: Ok, unless your a die hard fan of lost, then you would do best to stay clear of this game if possible. Developed by Ubisoft, i must admit i expected better things.

Summary: this game was a complete and utter let down. i am a huge lost fan and i have been an advocate of the series since it's arrival on the television and i was so looking forward to playing this game. i was however sorely disappointed.
Summary: I'm with most of the other reviewers ... this is a very expensive game for very little. I am a fan of Ubisoft so am particularly disappointed. The game is short. It's barely challenging. The only redeeming feature for me was the electrical circuit challenges.
Summary: DON'T buy this. DON'T buy this. DON'T buy this. DON'T buy this. Shameless cash in on the popularity of the tv series. I stopped watching the series after 2 episodes of the new series..These guys are really taking the P and this game is just the latest instalment of mediocrity.
