A trip through Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked is like playing through a Major League Baseball season. It is a bit of a grind and certainly has its less exciting days. But in the end, you appreciate just how far you've come. The series is one of the more original console offerings out there and worth the time for any gamer looking for something a little more real.
Island exploration's enjoyable, as you're constantly rewarded with exotic plants, fruits, and resources.
All the extra content and intriguing exploration aspects are rendered null and void by the fact that you'll spend the majority of your time babysitting health bars, though. The developers at Hudson nailed the survival aspect a little too well -- now they just need to work on making it fun.
Your adventure can span across 101 days, each passing at the rate of an hour per minute, so even considering that you can sleep entire days away, Lost in Blue can certainly keep you occupied for quite a while. And once you're done, if you'd like, you can start all over as Lucy or play an unlockable mission-based mode centered on a pair of supporting characters, but neither of these options improve the game in any way. Surviving and making a life for yourself on a tropical island would be hard work, but playing a game about it shouldn't be quite so hard. And while the island has its share of secrets to be discovered, they're just not worth the effort. It's easier to eke out an existence on a tropical island than it is to squeeze much enjoyment out of this game.
