I've seen in in some of the favourite games lists in this topic so I'm probably not the only one who loves this game. Together with Ouendan and Phoenix Wright it's one of my Three Secret Best DS Games. However, it doesn't seem to get nearly as much attention as Ouendan and Phoenix. I think it should. It's so far more or less the only adventure game on the DS with a continuous gaming world to freely explore. It's what fascinated me about GTA, Outcast, Pokemon etc. and Lost in Blue has it, too. It's alive! Lost in Blue also has lots of stuff to explore, lovable characters, sexual equality but also clear role allocation, different endings... It's also got some small bugs, especially language bugs, and the controlls can be a little bit weird sometimes but it's not really annoying at any point. IGN and other reviews complain a lot about the repetetive tasks and they aren't really wrong. However, they are important for the atmosphere. You are always in danger and have work to do before you can go on exploring. Some people think the game is insanely difficult. That's not true. However, it plays different from other games. You can't play the brave hero, you have to be careful at all times and watch the values on the top screen. Get this game. It's awesome.
