Videogame adaptations from the TV are hardly blessed with a wonderful pedigree. The fact that the developers aren't allowed to reveal any new bombshells is also of concern, after all, we're hoping for an experience somewhat more interesting from a story perspective than simply a re-hash of the first three seasons through the eyes of a new character.
Still, Ubisoft did a wonderful job on Peter Jackson's King Kong, so perhaps we should have more faith in the game's creators, especially as they're working directly with the producers to make the game an authentic Lost 'episode' (albeit somewhat longer than usual tantalising 45 minutes).
The game is due out soon, in fact, and should reach the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 at the end of the month in some regions, yet despite this, the publisher's have been remarkably quiet. Hype has been contained to a few images, a couple of interviews and a trailer or two. Why? Well, for a start, the developers probably don't want to give away too much story or indeed gameplay prior to release - an air of mystery being at the heart of what makes the TV program so compelling. Of course, critics might also say that this is a sign that the game won't live up to fans' expectations.
