Lost in Shadow


As the sun sets on the American branch of Hudson, the last gleam of twilight rays have cast a shadow upon the Wii. Perhaps the most interesting game ever made in the company's history, Lost in Shadow proves to be a nice ride into the sunset for the...

Lost in Shadow is a nice gem and a good bookend for Hudson. Gamers with a taste for innovation and unique concepts would do well to seek it out. Battles may be a bit stiff, but overall Wii has its first hit of the year.

Lost in Shadow


Lost in Shadow is perhaps the most literal interpretation of the phrase "2D platformer" since the Paper Mario series, as most of the action takes place in the background. You play as the shadow of a young boy that has been mystically ripped from its...

Lost in Shadow


Inspired greatly by the works of Fumito Ueda (Ico, Shadow of the Colossus), it's got an interesting look to it, but you can't help but feel like it's all done without heart.

Specifically for Lost in Shadow, I'd like an easy way to find each of the items you're tasked with finding throughout the game - cause you know, backtracking sucks.

Lost in Shadow


The shadow world must be an entertaining one as there are a bevy of games in the past couple of years, like Echochrome, Shift or Limbo, that use shadows to create characters, obstacles and puzzles. Hudson's Lost in Shadow can probably be pigeonholed...

Lost in Shadow


The strange history of Lost in Shadow, which saw the game begin as a budget downloadable title and suddenly switch to a full disc release, has brought about a very strange game. Its very compelling concept - taking control of a shadow that can only...

Lost in Shadow commits what I consider to be gaming's cardinal sin: taking a great idea and using its originality up in a bad game. This is a real waste.

Lost in Shadow Review


Poor pacing almost derails this imaginative platformer, but a variety of clever puzzles in the second half of the game make it worth sticking with to the end.

Hopping on shadows forces you to view the world in new ways ; Clever puzzles make excellent use of the core mechanics ; Rousing boss fights provide a dose of excitement ; Tons of content that is largely good

Uneven pacing leads to long stretches of boredom ; Basic combat is a drag

Uneven pacing is the biggest flaw in this otherwise enthralling adventure. Lost in Shadow can stretch on for more than 30 hours, and the majority of the experience is quite well done. The first few hours are new and exciting, brimming with all sorts of...

Lost in Shadow Review


The Wii's latest exclusive has arrived, but is this unique adventure through shadow and light worthy of excitement? Can a game that mixes Hayao Miyaza...

Lost in Shadow is a great experience that’s spread a bit too thin. Though the core ideas behind the game are remarkable, the game’s length and awkward pacing early on will frustrate some and might make others outright bored. And when a game is this...

Lost In Shadow Hands-On Preview


Platformers are always looking for new ways to renovate the genre, most of the time with middling results. For every Braid, there's a dozen games that didn't get it right.

Lost in Shadow


Lost in Shadow is a single-player platform adventure, with a rich ambiance and an unusual play mechanic, based on light and shade. While the game is set in a three-dimensional world, it is played in the two-dimensional plane of the shadows cast by objects
