In the end, Lost: Via Domus works for neither fans of the show, nor fans of adventure games. Folks who have been watching the show from the first episode won't find any new answers about the island, and those used to a more robust adventure game experience will be put off by the boring, simplistic game play.
At five hours, the game isn't worth a purchase, especially for the 360 or PS3 version which retails for double the price of the PC version, as it has no replay value. Uncovering Elliot's story can be interesting at times, but those looking for a fantastic Lost adventure would be better off taking the time to watch the first three seasons on DVD. This is one game that should get lost, and stay there.
