Summary: When i bought this game, i assumed the characters you would play would be from the TV show. The character you play is a random man from the plane searching for clues. I found this game boring and very very quick to get through, my younger brother completed it within the hour. Even though the game has good graphics for when it came out, I would not recommend this game.
Excerpt: Games that come about from movies and tv shows generally turn out to be a disappointment to fans and I went into this game expecting much the same. I'll start of by saying that if you are not a Lost fan then this game is definately not for you. The game only really serves as giving fans something new based around the happenings of season 1.
Excerpt: Games that are adapted from either TV shows or films are notorious for being just down right terrible. Lost: The Video Game is no exception, a poorly made, if ambitiously premised game that just can't deliver the same level of intrigue, suspense and intelligence as the TV show can. Despite impressive visuals, it's a pretty limp effort that's just not very much fun to play ultimately.
Ubisoft probably could've harvested this goldmine much better.

Excerpt: OVERVIEW: The video game for one of the biggest television programs of the century. GRAPHICS: What can I say? The game is absolutely stunning graphically. To begin with, you are met with the plane crash; perfect realism, the jungle looks amazing with grass and leaves moving with your body. The beach looks beautiful with a realistic camp. Faces, on the whole, look really good. Some look a bit odd and some are just poor when light is reflected on them.
Conclusion: I remember picking up a copy of this last year. I was bored after an hour and it seems rather repetitive. Some of the convo's are interesting, and the story itself is quite enjoyable, but the gameplay doesn't back that up. I would actual give this game 4 stars for the story and even the graphics aren't too bad, I actually liked them. But the gameplay really let's this game down. It's a shame because I was really excited for this game coming out.
Summary: massive lost fan hence me buying it on release. dissapointed though after just 8 hours of playing because i completed it. fun while it lasted which like i said wasn,t long. just when you thought you were getting somewhere it ended!!!! not good value for money at all. plus points though are nice graphics, great music, some tricky puzzles, nice gameplay (apart from annoying flashback sequences). whatever you do, don.t pay a lot for this game.
Unless you like burning money, i wouldnt bother with it

Excerpt: In Lost Via Domus you take the role of Elliot, a journalist with amnesia, throughout the game you find out about your past and learn that there is a reason your on the island. The game has stunning graphics that at some points in the game are truely breathtaking, however, the character models are terrible, the look and sound of some of them are so bad you struggle to think who it is.
Summary: Ok, there have been a lot of poor and good reviews of this game. Overall, it is a good idea and for the lost devotee it does give a few insights into the island and the whole lost experience. Its just a shame that you do not have the freedom to go where you want, or do what you want. This is because of the set storyline that is unflexible, so much that it is frustrating at times.
Summary: This game disappoints on nearly every level. The communication and interaction with the survivors (who all have horrible voice actors) is minimal and dull. At the very beginning I thought it may have some potential in that you'd be able to pick out your own path by choosing what to say to people, but that soon went out the window. As well as this, the majority of them look pretty bad. The graphics on scenery and the black smoke look very good, mind.
