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.

  • 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.

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...

  • 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. Indeed, we could easily wax lyrical about how gorgeous, how clever, how economical and how utterly charming this game is for the next 20 pages. That would be an indulgence though, so we'll see what we can achieve over the next 400 words or so.

  • Summary: Zum Launch des WiiWare Kanals gab es einen kleinen, aber feinen Download, der auch bis heute noch als Referenztitel für die ganze Wii herhalten kann: LostWinds. Für 1000 Punkte, also umgerechnet ca. 10 EUR bot das kleine Stückchen Software soviel Freude und Innovation, wie es die meisten der unsäglichen Minispielsammlungen und Ramschprogramme des Wii-Katalogs zum Vollpreis nicht schaffen.
  • Pros: Stimmungsvolles Design, liebevolle Details und Animationen, Innovative Steuerung, Wiimote kongenial eingesetzt, Motivierendes Spiel-Prinzip mit zu lernenden Fähigkeiten, Sehr Atmosphärisch
  • Cons: Stimmungsvolles Design, liebevolle Details und Animationen, Innovative Steuerung, Wiimote kongenial eingesetzt, Motivierendes Spiel-Prinzip mit zu lernenden Fähigkeiten, Sehr Atmosphärisch

  • Excerpt: Судя по обещанию «to be continued...» после победы над главным и единственным боссом LostWinds , игра в любом случае должна была обзавестись продолжением. Вот только ждать одного лишь анонса пришлось почти год, а самого сиквела – все полтора. Но он того стоил! Игровой процесс все так же схож с двухмерными Metroid и Castlevania , где требуется не добежать до конца уровня, а исследовать одну огромную карту (доступ к некоторым участкам ограничен начальными возможностями...

13 December 2009
  • Summary: Mit dem Launch von WiiWare im Wii-Shop erschien eines der bis heute besten WiiWare-Spiele, Lost Winds. Es bot eine tolle Steuerung, sehr gute Ideen und eine wunderbare Grafik, doch war es nach nur zweieinhalb Stunden schon vorbei. Frontier, der Entwickler von Lost Winds, versprach Besserung in Form eines zweiten Teiles. Nun ist dieser zum Jubiläum als hundertstes WiiWare-Spiel erschienen.
