Storyline

Oceanic Airlines flight 815 crashed somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. You take control of an amnesiac photojournalist who was also aboard the fateful transpacific flight. During the game you must slowly regain your identity through completing quests, talking with the other survivors, and correctly identifying clues during flashbacks. Early on you find out you had a camera on the plane with you. Evidently one of your photographs made another survivor mad enough to want to destroy the photograph and kill you. The events in the story unfold in a great parallel to the TV series. Most of the game's storyline occurs during the first two seasons of the show, but characters appearing in season three of the show are also included in encounters and exposition.

Lost Via Boredom
17 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well to sum this game in a word - BAD! I shouldn't have been expecting much with a game based on a TV series - but had anyone from the series been involved this may have been OK!

I was hoping for a more GTA feel set through the current 4 series' and maybe even an additional medium of telling more story ala Matrix Game! But no - instead of walking anywhere u want, maybe borrowing Hurleys VW, go hunting, find stuff, join or fight the others and so much more they could of done, they failed.

You play an amnesiac passenger of Oceanic Flight 815, - no one seen yet from the show. You slowly learn your ID etc in a very short and pointless story. You interact with a select few of the survivors, with some of the worst voice acting ever! Locke annoys you loads, Jack is just a hate monger, Sayid is spot on, Sawyer is a cliché redneck who is annoying. Boone, Shannon, Ana Lucia, Mr Echo are nowhere and the surviving 40 + from the show become a surviver amount of 8 people!

Graphics: 9/10 To be fair to the game - the graphics are good. The characters look the business, the Island is very well rendered. This looks spot on.

Sounds & Music: 4 Though the music is crisp - it uses the same repetitive piano theme all the way through, which is the same as the show, it becomes very annoying. The Lost Theme - fails to make it in. The audio of voice acting is bad - it is so clearly not the main cast. Though Desmond, Ben and Sun do make it in - they are so underused and in it for mear seconds its hardly worth mentioning!

Game Play: 2 The controls are horrible and very jumpy. There is a constant delay between commands. The game style is broken into 8 'Episodes' which is the same thing over and over - Flashback which involves a photo, quick puzzle, find something or run from it, then end of episode. Its boring. The constant 'Previously on Lost' bits are annoying, you can die so easily and have to re watch the cut scenes which you cannot skip!

Replay Value: 0 Once you work your way through this, and finally complete it - with its horrible and pointless end sequence, there is nothing to go back for. No different ways to do the game, the extras are so small and rubbish you will almost guarantee to pick everything up first time - ie it tells you what to photograph! Once finished- which with dedicated play will last you a day! There are complicated puzzles involving setting the right amount of volts to a juncture. Its easy at first because it gives you an indication of the amount of volts. Later it doesn't and with the shear number of bolts to use - its a nightmare. Its not tough but annoying - cos it could be anything!!

Summary This game sucks! Don't buy it or play it. If it used any other game type it would of been a decent game - but no it went with the Men in Black style and sucks!!
