Excerpt: Lost is something of an oddball franchise these days. Many fans couldn’t be arsed following every single plot thread and snippet of info, teasingly fed out of the intricate plot and as such simply abandoned the show. Others enjoy the twists and suspense, picking holes in every bit of dialogue, while attempting to decipher everything they see on screen, in the hopes of unravelling the islands’ many mysteries.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is an offshoot of the TV show Lost . Like the show, there are moments of moderate violence and terror: characters are shot, blood is shown, and the player gets chased by a scary "smoke monster." Profanity is limited to what you might hear on primetime network television. The only part of the game even remotely sexual in nature is a woman walking on a beach in a bikini posing for a picture.
Conclusion: And then your alway being shot at in the jungle and there is this "black smoke of death" I am a smoker in life and I have survied more smoke then that. And hey how about not being able to run with DYNOMITE! Honestly this game sucks. There are better games to get a easy one thousand on. Avatar two minutes and no garbage and crappy story.
Excerpt: We first heard that they were making a Lost game probably about 3 years ago now, and since then it has been delayed and pushed back until it was finally released back in late February 2008. Everyone was expecting a good title because of the developers, Ubisoft, who do have a name for making great games. A game which rides completely on the back of a TV series which hit phenomenal success meant that I had strong reservations about this title.
Excerpt: Lost: Via Domus, which is based on the hit ABC series Lost, arrives on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I had the opportunity to review the Xbox 360 version of the game and upon receiving my review copy my first thought was what does Via Domus mean? Via Domus is apparently Latin for 'The Way Home' which is briefly explained during the game. Now that we are all enlightened I have to tell you that I was somewhat skeptical of what this game could offer.
