LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias Review

Cheat Code Central

  • 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. The visuals, heart-tugging themes, and stellar level design come together to make for a truly magical journey. Though it might not trump the first game, Melodias is its equal in every way.

LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias Review

  • Excerpt: It's easy to think of LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, the sequel to last year's enchanting WiiWare platform puzzler, as yet another inspired game from UK developer Frontier. It's spell-bindingly beautiful, packed full of wonderfully designed characters, and has an eerie yet entrancing atmosphere that forces its way under your skin. But it's the fact that it improves upon its predecessor in almost every way that makes it a better game than the original.

LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias

  • 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. Well, it’s finally here, and all I can say is it was definitely worth the wait.

GameSpot
19 October 2009
  • Excerpt: LostWinds was a WiiWare launch game that was full of promise, but despite some genuine innovation, it failed to deliver across the course of its adventure. Now one year later, the sequel, LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, is a vast improvement over its predecessor. The controls have been tightened, the dull indoor sections have disappeared, and the game has been lengthened.
  • Pros: Great art style, Well designed puzzles, Innovative controls
  • Cons: Disappointing ending, Some controls are poorly explained

LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias WiiWare Review

DarkZero
12 November 2009
  • Excerpt: When Nintendo’s WiiWare service debuted in 2008, its initial launch of original download titles ranked between decent time-killers (such as Final Fantasy: My Life as a King and Defend Your Castle ) to forgettable fodder ( TV Show King , Blackjack Casino ). The most memorable of WiiWare’s launch titles, however, was LostWinds , an original episodic effort by Frontier Developments that featured a lovely marriage of classic 2D gameplay and Wiimote controls, with some...
