Lost in Blue 3
this game is fun. so far I've got to the end where you have a portable radio and have to find the frequency for it. I might have to start over though because I saved my game and now there's a wind storm that keeps me from going out and getting water and my characters wont sleep and let the storm pass because they are too thirsty, but that was my fault for liking to save a lot. I also wish this game was a little longer but not bad for only $4.99. (bought it used) lol
Would be a great game if it wasn't sexist
As far as the storyline and challenge of this game goes I do not have a problem. It has been very enjoyable in that respect. What I have a problem with is that if you choose to play the female character she can't use or create half the stuff available in the game. Claire can create a number of items she can't use, like the fishing pole or bow and arrow. Since when are females incapable of using a fishing pole? She can't even go diving...she has to bring a male along to do it for her. I don't even know why she is able to make half the stuff available if she can't use it and none of her group will either. She can't make rope, rafts, or furniture without a guys help. The only thing the males can't do is basket weaving...and that is left to the only female character in your group that you don't find till much later in the game. Also, the males are able to attack animals whereas my female characters only option is to put up her fists and run away. It is unrealistic to think a female stuck on a deserted island wouldn't/couldn't do these things herself. I didn't find this out until I was more than halfway through the game and did not feel like starting over, but I am disappointed that I am missing out on these other features just because my character is a girl. I can only give this game 2 stars as a recommendation for the reasons stated above.
Lost in Blue 3: No reason to get bored
Lost in Blue Three is a video game that has a different experience from many other games. I was always happy to find good spices, logs, and even the occasional coconut was fun to cook with. The game had very many features, and even if the story line was the same as the previous two in this franchise, it felt better, thanks to the graphical improvements. Fans of this franchise might have been disappointed from the last installment in this series, but worry not, Lost in Blue Three fixed many of the errors from the previous two games, while still keeping all the fun game play features. I went fishing very often, and I always cooked the food with different varieties of spices to see how good each one was for hunger. Lost in Blue 3 made the story good for previous fans, but easy to pick up for newcomers. The only minor problem with this game was that the cooking didn't have enough difference with the spices that you used (although there were some minor differences in hunger, nothing major).
Maybe third time's the charm?
I steered clear of the first two because from what I read, keeping your braindead companion alive made the game a chore and really limited your ability to explore the island and have a proper adventure. Maybe they'll get it right this time. I'd love a good, open-ended exploration/adventure game for the DS.
response to a customer
i think game will be great. I missed the first one but I really enjoy the second. The game and the tv series are two totally different stories. I think the tv series is awesome anyone who doesn't like it keep your opinions to yourself, you don't know what you are talking about. This a preview about a game so quit talking about tv shows that a child like you doesn't know anything about.
They ruined it
I have both LiB 1 and 2 and I love them both. Yes, they are challenging at first but once you figure out how to hunt and cook efficiently the game gets very exciting. The third game looks like they went soft for all those people who complained about the old games being too hard and they went all cartooney and kiddish on this one. I will try it but I have my doubts.
LOST in blue?
The Lost in Blue series are actually the continuation of the GameBoy color game Survival Kids which was released in 1999. Which, of course, is a full 5 years before the horrible, horrible TV series came out in 2004. The games are about real survival, not some fantasy, polar bear mystery crap. Anyway, the games have been fun, but for some reason I still like the original the best. It was a simple, 8 color game, but it was fun and very unique. I'm looking forward the new chapter.
for those who have watched LOST, they will see multiple similarities to the show. a plane crash, flashbacks on characters, and even the names are similar. like James "Sawyer" and Claire. just another attempt to get money if you ask me.
I played LIB 1 and 2 and they were basically the same game. At first I really enjoyed it. The graphics are great and the environments are huge but to me it was impossibel to play. Your skills decrease so fast that by the time you find the food your already hungy again. Theres no time to do anything. I play this game with cheats but that just makes it boring so overall its ok but I just find it really hard to find time to actually progress in the game.
1, great, 2 great, 3?
I've had the pleasure to purchase L.I.B.2 and i absolutely loved it and still play it. I like the fact that there's so much interactivity. I believe that 3 will be just as good, if not, better. The fact that there are more characters this time around is a plus. Perhaps there will be more elements in terms of an actual storyline if the description is accurate. I can't wait!!!!!! A must buy!
