Is this game really worth purchasing at all? To me it doesn't seem like it. Anyone have an opinion?

No, It's pants. And I'm a fan of the show.. just started episode 5 so far and its a big pile of doodoo. Not even adventure fans need apply (me included :-P)

Totally not worth the cash imo. Completed it way too quick.

I'm a huge Lost fan, but after reading the reviews online I wasnt about to spend $60 for it. I picked it up on ebay for $40 which probably still is too much but I couldnt help myself. It would probably be worth it buying used for like $20 but other than that I would wait.

Only buy it if you collect LOST Memorabillia. Or your just gonna trade it in.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. It is short as hell, has absolutely no replay value, and is pretty boring overall. Rent it if you must (if you are a LOST fan like me you might find some interest there... I didn't find anything interesting at all to be honest). Easy achievements if you are a loser who is into achievement boosting I guess.

Make sure you have the guide that's available at this website. Even repeating these missions is boring.

Why does it say Lost:The Videogame on the cover of the game, and here it says Lost:Via Domus?

I'd rent it, but too bad I can't rent where I live.

Purely a rental, imho

this game is so boring and it sucks... :uzi:
one play through to get the achievements and never touch it again...

If you enjoy it, go for it, but for me it was less than a 5 hour game, so not nearly worth anything more than the $5 Family Video fleeced me for.

This is one of the few games I have ever played that pissed me off due to its stupidity.

I wouldn't pay more than 2 dollars for that piece of crap game. By far the worst 360 game I have ever played. I might even throw it in as the worst xbox game I have ever played. I picked it up on e-bay and am praying I can get something close to what I paid for it.
FYI: I love the show which is the only reason I gave this game a chance.

If you want this game, it reminds me of a new age Broken Sword.
And yes i have played and completed all the broken sword's.
Ive never onced watched the LOST Tv Series, but i picked this game up today for 30.
I think its a great game.
Definatley one for the Broken Sword genre fan or fans of LOST obviously.
:)
STOP THE NEGATIVITY!

Well if your from the Uk. Lost is currently 15 plus free delivery from www.play.com (http://www.play.com).

If you want to buy I suggest you buy this before the price goes back up.

Im a big fan of the show but this game just doesnt look like something that is worth $60. I'll just rent it.

Wow I am oversea's right now. Games are kinda limited. As soon as a release hits it sells out. I should have know then, because there were like 20 of them on the shelf. Not only that it was marked to 30 bucks.... After reading the ad in a game mag a few months ago i was excited because I like the show. Too bad I didn't look online before I bouht this. This game wasn't even worth 30 bucks.. Maybe when I get back I can go to game stop and get a decent price, but I doubt it... I imagine there are plenty of these at the game store already.... such a boring game... Just can't believe the got the rights for a game like this........

I just bought this game, but I haven't played it yet. By the looks of it I, I have a feeling it won't be that good. But I'm obsessed with the show so I had to play. Lol I bet thats what these developers were counting on.

Hi,
I can have it for 20 € --> 15$ and I like the show.
Is it a good choice ?

Nah, I wouldn't spend more than however much a rental would cost. The game is extremely short (4 hours with the guide).

Yeah, the game is really short. The only people who should've bought it were game rental companies.

Well as far as GamerScore Whore games go id recommend it its pretty painless and very quick

Dont. Rent it if you are a fan of the show, want cheap points. Besides that its pretty darn boring.

I don't recommend the game at all... Its terrible on so many levels. First off...It's boring... its just a bunch of running around taking pictures. Secondly, you need to follow a guide. There is no way to go backwards if you forget something (ie pictures) along the story line... unless you don't mind multiple play throughs.

It is a bad game, and to makes matters worse-it has temperamental achievements that glitch. Damn game still owes me 10 points. I hate my 990 in it.

SPOILER ALERT......
did you get the picture inside the dome, level 4? i am sure you did.
turn on uv lights and then only open second door (B), walk thru and take picture of map on the wall. thatwill be the 2 pics needed on level 4 for the "mapping the island achievemnet". level 6 picture is on table in the room right before you open door to shoot beady eyes dead.

hopefully you can get your 10 points with that info. i was missing the same 10 points until i figured it out.

I paid $5 for the lost game. it took me about 7 hours or so. i bought the game 18 months ago and read the reviews. the reviews were so bad i did not play it. then i heard it only takes 5 hours to play thru. so i decided to pull it out of the bottom stack of games and give it a try. i think i would give the game a 7 but i think my score is higher than the average 5.5 because i paid $5 and not $60 like most fans did when it came out.

i generally only play games rated 9.0 and above. its rare for me to play games rated in the 8's so this shows how much of a lost fan i am to play the game, even if its only 7 hours....

Honestly this game wasn't bad at all...I should finish it tonight, but so far no problems. The story line is nice and feels like the show. I paid $9 for it and it was worth every penny. It had some potential to be a great game, but over all i say if you can buy it for under $10, it's worth it.

07-20-2010, 10:16 AM
Well I got it for 2,90€ used, so it's not so bad for a quick 1000G...

I've been debating this one for months. I just saw it at gamestop for like 9 dollars. I'll probably pick it up just to give it a go. I'm seriously needing to be lost right now...

If you're gonna get it for under $10, knock yourself out. Easy 1000.

That's where I got mine and if you play it straight through you can return it with in 3 days and get your money back and full 1000 gs.

this game isnt great but if u are a lost fan i suggest you must buy it. its not too expensive since its an old game an everyone knows its not great you can pick it up for less than a fiver but if u are a fan of lost an lets be honest whos not (lost is awsum) its worth at least a few quid, worth a play.

rent it.. not worth much else unless you are a fan of the show and even then it's a bit hard to get past the voice acting as most are not from the original actors

Shadow Warlock
09-03-2010, 04:51 PM
Haha, picked this game up for 2 (about $4) and i'm a big fan of the series, so far it's AWFUL :P least 2 is cheaper than a rental price!

Depends on how bad you want GP. Pretty easy 1000. I like the show, but the game didn't have anything to do with it. It tried to do like The Godfather did and run parallel to what everyone knows, just did it less successfully. I didn't like the game but i liked the GP. Rent it or Gamefly it...don't buy.

NO! this game is awful it is so boring, i wasted around 5 hours of my life getting the 1000G on this game and to be honest it's not satisfying at all!

and i absolutely adore the TV Series, i love it! but this game is awful, PERIOD.

Panic!
12-11-2010, 09:49 PM
Rent it, tbh. Good buy if it's priced from 2 - 10 tho although if it's priced at 20 or even 15 don't even bother buying it. Good game for 1000G.

I bought it for 3.00 off Amazon, and I am now going to put it on eBay to see if I can make my money back! :)

Possibly the easiest 1000g EVER!

No it's a terrible game :L The easy points is it's main selling point to be honest. I borrowed it off a mate who bought it for like 3 in CEX :p
In my opinion you shouldn't pay for gamerscore so no, don't buy this game, only borrow or rent it for the achievements.

TBH I never got into Lost and only hired this for the points. I had the guide next to me the whole time and used it whenever I had to think twice about what to do next. I can't even remember half the game lol

I'm a fan of the series and a fan of this game only because its Lost.

I was told how bad this game was before I played it... but I think they were wrong. While this game wasn't amazing, I definitely enjoyed it. Of course, I got it for free... so that probably helped.

Anybody that was a big LOST fan should find this game fun. It's not a top of the line game by any means but it is fun to play as one of the survivors.
