    I had some difficulties with it in the beginning, because I am stupid.
    But after that it all went smoothly and now I'm overly enjoying this wonderful little game.

    I actually beat the game but only found 19 of the 24 statues. Very satisfying game!

    It's a nice game, I don't like it that much but yeah, it's good.
    But, this game just screams "DS Game!"

    besides the statues , is there any replayability in this game ?
    seems like after finishing it , besides being an epic , theres no reason to keep it on your wii (takes 260 blocks ) when new games come out.

    I appreciate the different feedback from you about LostWinds. [​IMG]

    Gamespot gave is a 5ish (mediocre)

    Do they actually know what they are talking about?

    something smells bad (for a long time now) when it comes to gamespot.
    I stopped visiting their site, how can you give 5/10 to a game so innovative , polished , with great ambiance , saying it lacks personality?

    I wont give it a 10 , but 8-8.5 would be enough.

    Yes I've noticed that.

    They seems to be giving really low scores lately. (FYI IGN gave it a 7ish)

    I used to rely on reviews from there, but lately any review I want to read it's judged 'mediocre'

    FFCC:MLAAK got 5 ish
    DQ:Swords got 5ish

    Seems they have some hatred to Nintendo.

    Yeah, I'd give it a 7.0, it's a good game worth getting.
    Gamespot really don't know what they're talking about

    Gamespot fired a reviewer because he didn't say what the advertisers wanted him to say. I personally don't like gerstman, but that was really low from his bosses.
    So, why pay attention to them? Lost winds is worth its weight in GOLD.
    BTW, i got 23 statues. Damn.

    Why is Gamespot still taking into the avarage on gamerankings? They should only stick with professional reviews.
    Gamespot's review scores never mean anything for the game. When they're paid by the creators of the game it gets a high score even if it's crap. (or if not it costs someone his job) If they don't get paid by the creator the score depends on what other sites give it and they give it a whole other rating to show you they "dare to be different".
