A 'Lost' Cause?As a huge fan of the LOST series, I had high hopes for this game. Unfortunately, it fell flat.
Why did it fail, you ask? For one, the game's main character is not a face you'll recognize from the series. In fact, to start, the character doesn't even recognize himself as you spend the first half of the game just trying to "find your identity".
One thing that I loved about the television show from the get-go was the fact that, as a viewer, you become very invested in the background and well-being of certain characters. You rooted for them, felt for them or even despised them. With 'Via Domus' I had no interest in who this new character was or how he got to the island... I was just interested in seeing how the game lined up with the world of 'Lost' I was already familiar with.
That being said, it was cool to see some familiar faces and to have the chance to explore the island a bit. I thought walking through the hatch, the fuselage and the jungle was a nice subtle nod to the beautiful scenery and architecture of the show. I liked the camp set up at the beach as well where you can chat with many different characters who you love from the show. Sadly, it's overshadowed by a clunky storyline that becomes old very fast.
The controls are clunky. You can't jump and it gets a little confusing sometimes on what you have to do next.
Overall: Worth checking out if you're a big fan of the series. Not worth checking out if you know nothing about the show. Has it's fun moments, but also has it's incredibly frustrating moments. I wouldn't say I hated the game, but I really wish I enjoyed it as much as I love the show.

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.

Good 4 HardCore LOST fansThis is a great game that i think all hardcore LOST fans should play. It gives me the feel of a Uncharted game mixed with a simulation tone of somthing like the Sims Castaway.

Love the game! Makes me jumpThis 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!

Huge LOST fan, disappointed thoughI am a HUGE LOST fan but when I played this game, it was extremely boring. Just taking pictures in the flashbacks felt like all I was doing and it was confusing. Sadly after just one day of owning this game, I returned it.

Huge LetdownI 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.
