Lost: The Video Game aka Lost Via Domus is a very mediocre game with decent graphics, simple puzzles and little to know replay value.
You play as Elliot Maslow and navigate him through various levels, which normally require you to fix fuse boxes with screws as well as other boring things.
You get to interact with many memorable characters from the show, (Jack, Kate, Sun, Sawyer, Michael, Claire) and this is one of the few highlights of the game. Some of the cast from Lost lend their voices to the game. Other voice actors are used for the rest of the characters which is a shame since some of the voice acting is a little off, especially Sawyer who seems to give a slightly over-exaggerated southern accent.
Music is pretty good. You have a mixture of fast and mellow tunes which play periodically depending on the action that takes place.
Overall the game isn't really impressive. It plays more like a fancy tech demo than an actual game. The graphics are nice and the music is great but the gameplay brings it all down. Probably best to rent this first before deciding to buy. Hopefully when the show ends, a proper lost game with a compelling story and interesting gameplay will emerge.
Lost the videogame is based upon the popular TV show of the same name.
Instead of putting you in the shoes of an existing character from the show your given a new character. A photographer who has conveniently lost his memory. Over the course of the game you must figure out why you are on the island and who you are.
It sounds quite interesting but the gameplay is quite bad, you solve mildly interesting versions of the same puzzle that get harder as the game goes on. You can explore small areas which fans of the show will recognise, you also have to hide from the smoke monster, explore caves, push the button, and interact with characters from the show. There are also small sections gunplay but the game is more about exploring and solving puzzles.
Disappointingly they did not get the original voices from the programme which dilutes the experience. Fans of the TV show will probably enjoy this but if you're not crazy about lost then avoid this.
