LOST: Via Domus is going to create a stir, like most things that JJ Abrams touches of late. The game takes place along the timeline of series 1 - 3, so cleverly enough, playing the game will not spoil anything for fans.
You play a new character in the story - a photographer with amnesia and (as we learn quickly) enemies on the island. As you journey the island trying to uncover your identity, you will interact with all of the main cast - from Jack and Sawyer to Charlie and Hurley.
Annoyingly, and quite bafflingly, they didn't use the original actors' voices, which seems strange, given that the game has close links to both the ABC network and the producers. That aside, there are some great puzzles to solve and you get to relive key moments from the series from a new perspective. Also, each level is episodic, which is a really nice touch - so before you start the next level, you hear 'Previously on Lost..' and are shown clips from the last level. That, I loved!
I am no longer watching the show, I gave up; but I still thoroughly enjoyed the game.
Replay Value: 2/5
Overall rating: 4/5
