1/24/08 - First gameplay from the Lost video game.
I mean on the one hand it looks halfway decent...
BUT...given the fact that NOBODY knows what the he11 is going on with Lost to begin with I find it hard to believe they are going to let a video game spoil the ending of the show before its all done. And if that is the case...then whats the point of playing a game with a broken or incomplete ending to it?
I guess I will have to wait and see on this one....
If I remember correctly, I read in a previously posted preview that this game is based on the first two series, as when they started developing the game they hadn't started the third. So the game will likely be based loosely around the on-goings of those episodes and I'm sure they'll throw their own made up stuff in there too.
Man if that is true that makes me even less likely to want this game. So they are basing the game on the first two seasons? So...no real ending...no real resolution in terms of Lost. I suppose they will have some seperate story line that will intersect with the first two seasons ... but even still.... the same mysterys about the island should be present in the game for accuracy...and again I dont think they are going to answer any of those questions in this game.
So a cliff hanger ending is almost assured.
Yeah, I've found the preview. It's from Eurogamer and is a pretty good read. Regarding what I said earlier:
"Rather than simply retelling the events of the TV series, Lost opts to tell the story of an entirely new castaway - a passenger on the ill-fated flight who wakes up in the jungle along with everyone else, and has his own pathway through the story of the show. The story of the game covers the first two seasons of the series (with certain landmarks, such as the Flame Station, from Season 3 - "when we were making the game, they were just starting to film season three," explains the game's producer) but tells an entirely new story that only crosses over with the antics of the central characters at key points."
have you guys played find815? its pretty cool. Obviously its not going to have a ending. I bet is has some weird twist of fate ending like the episode expose. Doesn't mean its not going to be fun. I guess rachet and clank, halo 2, and gears of war sucked because it didn't wrap up.
Maybe the end of the game is you playing out that sequence, though we never saw how they did it.
They said there wouldnt be any spoilers as far as the upcoming seasons, but they will just go deeper into the mysteries that already bug us.
One week! Cant wait for the new season.
yup! can't wait! just sucks were only getting 8 episodes. damn writer strike better end fast. Anyway its cool because they are going to show more of the smoke monster and show that magnetic room in the hatch which they can't really touch on the show now ( since the hatch imploded)
not my type of game
Chase a carrot for 20 hours only to be disappointed at the end... and thats just the show.
umm lost has ended yet
I love the show so I can't wait to rent this game. They messed up on the kate character and now i'm pissed.
The graphics just plain suck.
Can we just get Season 4 and forget this game exists?
What I saw in gameplay are 1) running away from black smoke, 2) typing in the numbers, 3) taking pictures.
Might as well save up for the DVD or HD boxset. :-/
wow you miss the whole point. Lost the game really is just a interactive episodes of lost. Its not about shooting anything ( unless you count the camera) or leveling up your character. Its finding out why the character is on the plane/island and what is is backstory. Some people just forget lost really is a show about the characters first and mythos second, even though everyone really wants to know about the mythos first. lol.
I see, thanks. :)
So much for uncharted.
I get dissagree's?, we'll see what the combat gameplay's like but this kills uncharted graphically. go look at the pics in pending stories.
Uncharted is on the cartoony side, the foliage is much more true to life in structure and true to life in many other ways in LOST .
put the Uncharted pic on one tab and the Lost jungle pic one the other tab and compare them. The texture in Lost isn't so patchty its small and tight. Lost is just more photorealalistic.
Why look at pics when you just got a video? It does not look as good as Uncharted.
Says you. I can tell and this is crappy quality video.
Can't even have an honest opinion about anything without have to prove your opinion?.
Because your opinion isn't honest...
You're trying to convince the world that LOST looks better than Uncharted.
That's like saying Doom 3 looks better than Crysis.
PoG...I think you might have something here. Those screen shots of Lost look great...and they do trump Uncharted. BUT...will it look that good in motion/reality? Well...we shall see.
It kind of resembles Uncharted, only much darker, and a lot more boring.

If you really believe that this game "kills uncharted graphiclly" then you are a f*cking retard. Although, I wouldn't expect much from an Xbot who can't even spell the word GRAPHICALLY. Idiot.
UPDATE: Wow, a disagree. I wonder who that's from? LMAO. What a f*cking loser.
Thats why so many people are saying its just ok or it looks like a "rent" you have no idea what this games has to offer its just some footage of a dude explorering. lol
WOW THX7168 you have some mental issues you need to see somebody about.
Calm down loser its just my opinion. These are just games. Go get some help. Standard Sony fanboy.
i think its goona be really good or really poor, i dont think there is middle ground with this
the thing that really annoyed me was that the characters didnt sound like the ones from the show, that part is always a disappointment in games.
The game hardly looks like it's being made for the PS3 or the 360.Plus who the hell is the protagonist,and why are we controlling only one person...since everyone stranded on the Island have their own experiances.
