LOST: Via Domus
Short, But a Good Game
The game was not very long but was very enjoyable. There were seven episodes to play. It took me a little while to figure it out though. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a Lost fan. The plot was very well thought out. You play as an unseen survivior of Oceanic Flight 815, who does everything he can to find his way home. You do see familiar survivors, like Locke, Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Charlie, Claire, Michael and Hurley. You also see some of the others like Ben, Juliet, and Tom. Just like the show you have flashbacks, these are interactive though. To top it off you have to get your character to remember, because he forgot everything after the crash. Just as you would think, the graphics are wonderful. It looks almost real, very lifelike. At least they are on the PS3, I can't account for the Xbox 360. Overall it was a very fun game, pretty short, but I would recommend to LOST fans. I enjoyed it, played it, and beat it twice. To me it was very replayable, but that's just me.
Pretty cool game!
This game is alot better than the reviews its getting.So far iv only played maybe 35min but so far i like it.The game has all the characters from the show and they all look the same that they did from that episode your playing.The controls are pretty tight aswell.This is a fun game for any gamer.
ehhh, not impressed
ok, ive been watching lost since it first started, and i love it. and as soon as the game came out, i was extremely excited. It was a huge disappointment, though. There was so many errors i can't even begin. OK, first, the characters. most of the main characters looked like a 6 year old made them. they looked absolutely nothing like the real show. And there voices are just plain weird. they dont sound like the real characters, and its slow at times. another thing i didnt like was the fuses. i didn't even get what you were supposed to do. i ended up just placing fuses randomly until i got it to work. but then again, i guess you get what you pay for. overall, if you can afford ** ***** and you like lost, i recommend it, but the plot would be confusing and youd probably hate it if you didn't like lost. Oh, and btw, last season of lost coming up. shucks.
I bought this game awhile back and finally got around to playing it. I am a Lost fan and did not have much high hopes for this game. I was pretty much right because this game really is not that good. I think it was made too soon and needs action. With the series being wrapped up this seaon, I think they could try another stab at it with answering questions that the series did not get around too. You are not missing anything by not picking this game up. If you are thinking it would be fun to enteract with the other characters, it's really not. The game is pretty much is just a let down. Save your money or pick it up used or extremely cheap. There is no fighting at all. Just playing as an unkown survivor that was just made up just for the game.
Good, if you love the show.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of Lost, having seen every episode I enjoyed seeing the familiar characters (with pretty good renders) and locations, not to mention a few secret places. To be honest - apart from the lack of correct voicing, few locations and short length, it could be a great game. With the exceptions of the fuse puzzles (7ish) the game is incredibly easy. If the fuse puzzles weren't there you could probably knock an hour of play time. If you don't watch the show regularly or have seen many episodes (I'd say at least go to season 3) then you'll be confused the entire time. Dialogue can be extremely boring - without any sort of RPG element (simply ask all questions regardless), and once you get inside the hatch trading loses all challenge, considering the gun (that you'll only NEED to shoot 2 or 3 times throughout the game) is the only item that may seem out of reach. People will continue selling you ammunition though, you can acquire more than 100 unused bullets. Overall - the replayability is low - even for an avid fan you may not want a second look, the graphics are decent, the levels are uncreative and linear, but - it's a nice afternoon.
A great addition to the LOST franchise.
LOST was one of the better shows on TV. It had action, adventure, mystery, and great characters. LOST: Via Domus has all of the above, just on a slightly smaller scale.
The game begins with the main character waking up in the jungle. He has only some of his memories, and, in order to get them back, he has to remember important snippets of his life by seeing familiar objects.
One of the best parts of the game is the interaction. You get to talk with Locke, Charlie, Jack, Hurley, and more in order to get information. As the game goes by, certain characters feel closer with your character, while others grow to despise him.
Overall, this is a good game, especially if you like Lost. I would recommend it to anyone who likes survival games.
Never watched the lost series but now after playing the game I never will...the game was that bad. The graphics weren't great, the characters never changed facial expressions and the storyline was horrible. Pretty much all you do is run around, and i mean run because you can't jump except in one segment of the game. You walk around talking to people from the show and take pictures to help regain your memory. There's really no challenge since the only puzzles in the game involve fuse boxes. Would only recommend this game to someone who was obsessed with the lost show. I guess the only cool part of the game was you could pick stuff up on the island and use them to trade with other characters. Other than that the game was pretty much a waste of time
Love the game! Makes me jump
This game is amazing! The protagonist's story is entertaining to follow. I wish he was in the actual show Lost. That's right, you're not Jack or Kate, you're a completely new character that also crashed on the island on Oceanic 815. You have no memory of before the crash, and thats a problem: no one trusts you. You play your way through quite a few "episode" of Lost centrally focused on your character, but it follows the main story's timeline. I love playing this game, but I easily get scared when running through a dark cave, trying not to get shot in the jungle, and fleeing the smoke monster. Excellent game for an excellent price, now only $6.99 pre- owned. If you're a lost fan, give it a try!
The creators of this game also made assassins creed which was a great sandbox game. When I saw a preview of this game it looked like 1 exit to the gungle off of the beach. But Im sure this game will have great physics, not sure about gameplay though. Following the story and running from the smoke sound sawesome but I think its going to be a game where you play once and never play it again. Then again I can play assassins creed over and over like GTA. SO lets just hope.
It's LOST time? Is the game ready?
I think that this game might be one of the following: 1. Poor and nothing like the show's complexity 2. Impossible due to the number of "main characters" 3. Impossible due to the show's complexity. 4. Just all around sucks-ville. But that's just my take on it, I think we'll get a better understanding of it, as time progresses and we get to see more of a preview of the actual game. Not one of those crappy previews for next week's episode that is a total cliff hanger.
