LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias UK Review

IGN
18 January 2010
  • Excerpt: There haven't been many download-only titles that have commanded the kind of breathless attention that Frontier's LostWinds has had, and for good reason.

  • Conclusion: LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is pretty much everything fans of the first game could have hoped for in a sequel, and it's more than inviting to newcomers, as well. The ending is a bit anticlimactic, but the game says a lot without words.

Hardcore Gamer
22 October 2009
  • Summary: The original LostWinds , which released alongside the debut of the WiiWare service, was one of the first games to truly demonstrate the potential of the Wiimote’s pointer controls. The game ended far too quickly, unfortunately, leaving players craving a sequel.

App of the Day: LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias

Eurogamer
15 May 2012
  • Conclusion: LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias isn't just good for an iOS game. It's as attractive and polished an adventure as you're likely to find anywhere. I still mildly favour the WiiWare version for its clever control scheme (where the Wii Remote guided the wind spirit, while the more traditional...

  • Excerpt: Lovely. Absolutely bloomin' lovely. That's our quick four word review of Winter Of The Melodias. It's all you need to know, but even so doesn't come close to describing what a sumptuous experience this is.
