Game Vortex: Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked Review

Game Vortex writes: "From our last memory of Lost in Blue on the DS, Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked is a nice improvement. The graphics are not top-of-the-line for Wii, but are respectable. Where the art style before seemed biased toward realism, Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked goes more toward a cutesy, anime look. It keeps the overall game feeling lighter, makes it easier when the story introduces comedic elements, and reduces any discomfort players might have projecting themselves into the situation of these survivors.
