A real shame, with a bit more freedom and longer gameplay (I finished it on the tube journey home from work) this could have been a very decent conversion. Hopefully this is just a little blip from the usually reliable Gameloft and the next instalment of Lost lives up to the quality and longevity of the series itself.
If you're looking for an island-based action-adventure, our preference would still be for Stranded, but of course fans of the TV series will opt for Lost every time, and chances are they'll enjoy what they find. Like the TV show, there's every chance this game will spawn sequels in the future, so perhaps more grizzled mobile gamers can hope for something a little more taxing then, too.
Lost is an extremely linear game that never allows you to step outside a very preordained path between plot points. Because you are replaying highlight scenes from the show, this design decision makes sense, but with the Lost universe apparently so rich with character development, intriguing locations, and mystery, being "on rails" is kind of a disappointment. I have to recommend Stranded above Lost because of this, as it has a greater scope that offers more game for your money.
Overall, the foundations of Lost are nothing we haven't seen before: a well-built, consistent action/adventure game with some variation. However, for a game based on such a gripping, suspense-filled show, some people may feel as if Gameloft haven't reached their full potential here, creating an entertaining yet seemingly half-hearted game.
