As a Die Hard Lost fan I was enthused to see the new lost game coming out. I pre-ordered it and played it straight through the first day I got it. I have to say the cut scenes are amazing with the high quality graphics and interaction. The story line does not infringe on the Lost TV series whatsoever. You play a completely new character that has their own amazing background. There are six episodes in this game each continuing off the last. In each episode played you have flashbacks which you must interact in and complete the task given to regain that part of your memory. On the island you can see most of the main characters. Jack, Kate, Lock, Sun, Jin, Hurley, Sawyer, etc… The interaction between you and these characters is not what it needs to be. For example you can Trade items in the story mode, a prime trader in Sawyer. Sawyer from the show is a very solid character with catchy phrases and witted style, in the game his character lines are really bad and just not the same feel as the show. The same thing applies with most of the regulars on the island. Although this interaction isn’t what it should be, the scenery and key places from the TV series are adequately displayed. The very luscious tropical forest, and key areas such as the cockpit, and the Black rock make this game seem very realistic in light of the TV series. Another Creature never really explained in the series is very key in this game. The “Black Smoke” is a very horrific creature that chases you throughout the forest while running to your next objective or area. In the end you have many interactions with the others and the original characters of the Oceanic Flight 815, which to any fan is eye candy, considering Lost keeps you coming back for more. The sound in this game is pretty amazing. You start the game off in the plane, and when story starts to role it displays some amazing sound effects with the forest and plane itself. The sad thing about this game is I beat it in around 5 hours. Which for me doesn’t say much because I purchase a game and try my best to beat it, but one thing with this game is that there is only one difficulty level and once you get the feel for the Lost Via Domus game it is a pretty easy spill of animation and graceful island controlling. I also got all of the achievements for this game only going back through once, which for an Xbox 360 game doesn’t say much for the use that other games take many repeats to achieve even achieve half of the points allotted. This Game to me is more suited to be an amazing episode of lost more than an actual game, with it’s short story and limited interaction. I still advise any fan of the series or someone just wanting an easy pick-up game to get this one. Anyone could enjoy this game because it doesn’t exactly leave a lot of mysteries alone, but does mess your mind up in the end like any Lost episode.
