LostWinds review for the WII


Almost too breezy, but enchanting anyways.

Aesthetically disarming, mellow visuals; Great music and sound effects; Pleasing platforming and puzzles

Snack-sized; Puzzles are a tad easy; Toku could run faster; Waiting for the second installment

The tale is so nicely innocuous that it doesn't affect anything one way or another, but it sets up some innovative controls. Instead of having a dedicated jump button, you toss Toku about with a gust of wind, which you trigger by holding the A button...

LostWinds - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games


It's so easy to take for granted. The wind, I mean. Science explains it as the reaction to pressure between two adjacent air masses. Nothing more, nothing less. But for the folks that have a bit more imagination within their grasp, the wind can be...

LostWinds (WiiWare)


While nothing is ever as truly cut-and-dry as that, it would be impossible to review LostWinds without saying simply, this is what we were hoping for from WiiWare. Considering it one of the service's premiere launch titles (right alongside Final...

Looks fantastic ; Great music and effects ; Simple and fluid controls

Short. Real short ; Latter portion feels rushed ; Voice acting is sorely missed

Almost any problem I have with LostWinds can be chalked up to its length. Price seems a little high? Well, that’s because the game lasts only three hours. Story seems to end rather abruptly? Well, that’s because the game lasts only three hours. Game...

Woot!!! thars another one!!!!

If this is how WiiWare games are going to be, then I approve. It's a great buy for 10 dollars. It's fun, addictive, fluent, beautiful, and all around a good time.

LostWinds - WiiSoftware


WiiWare justified in a single game

Very enjoyable, very satisfying action-puzzling ; Unique and brilliantly implemented controls ; Gorgeously realised art design

The fact that we had to wait eighteen months for it ; The fact that very few Wii games use the system this well ; Not much else

LostWinds Preview


After seeing this upcoming WiiWare video game, we're convinced that everyone needs a wind spirit.

It's too early to pass judgment, but we see lots of potential. LostWinds is a cool little game with a lot to offer, and we look forward to downloading it as soon as it goes live.

Developers don?t have a whole lot to work with when it comes to Wii Ware. Certain developers so far haven?t shown too much with their games on Wii Ware, but that is about to change. Frontier Developments have gone ahead and taken this short task and...

LostWinds is the best valued game on Wii Ware right now. For only $10 you can buy this game, its incredible how Frontier added so much into this game with the slim space that was provided from Nintendo. If you haven?t bought a Wii Ware game yet, then...

LostWinds [WiiWare]


Frontier Developments puts an elemental twist on traditional side-scrolling platform games by letting players harness the power of wind in LostWinds, one of six games released for the North American launch of Nintendo's WiiWare digital distribution servic
