Lost Dimension is an incredible title, with a constant sense of escalation and drama. It’s the frequent trips to the judgement room that keeps you playing, continuously playing mind games as you try and figure out who needs to be taken out of the team. With the aforementioned traitors being randomised with each play through, Lost Dimension has a truly intimidating replay value to round out what is set to be one of the most under appreciated games this year.

A fun detective-esque RPG that punishes and rewards at the same time through its original story and game mechanics. Lacking RPG fundamentals like side quests and super-powered equipment will turn off some genre enthusiasts, but those who give it a chance will be captivated.

Lost Dimension is a unique, innovative RPG that can pride itself on fantastic characters and an engaging combat system. While the narrative isn’t fantastic, the NG+ features and intricate Gift skills will likely have you coming back for seconds. A fantastic addition to the Vita library.

Overall, Lost Dimension was an unexpected treat, and is definitely a hidden gem on the Vita and PS3. The game looks really good; however, there were times were I was experiencing slowdowns when there were a lot of enemies on screen. Once you get past the loading times and the shallow voting process for the traitor, you have a very well-crafted hidden gem that is the combination between visual novel and TRPG that you didn’t think you needed.

As a raw turn based SRPG, Lost Dimension would not be particularly impressive. The x-factor that makes it so interesting and different is the traitor-system that adds layers of intrigue, strategy, and makes the entire experience much more interactive and robust.

It’s actually a fascinating metasystem, which, in coordination with the engaging combat, makes Lost Dimension well-worth playing.  The game’s story and other systems are very much in service of this core dynamic of forging relationships and weeding out traitors, which is a bit disappointing, as there is the potential for an interesting narrative and world here.  Still, it’s a fun single-player RPG experience, and a fair investment for PS3/Vita owners.

Like I said, keeping your friends close and your enemies closer could not be more apropos in Lost Dimension. The depth of this game makes it a pretty solid addition to the Vita library, even if it does come off a little heavy handed about some life lessons.

Even if you’re not a fan of Atlus’ usual Japanese RPG fare, “Lost Dimension,” thanks to a manga-esque storyline and a fun tactical battle system, can eat up hours of time on your dormant PlayStation Vita.

Lost Dimension is an atypical JRPG that looks, sounds, and feels like a typical JRPG. Originally released for the PS3/Vita, this two-year old game finally has a more accessible steam port for the plebeians among us that didn't choose the proper game console. The premise is straightforward enough, in that there is a collection of unique cast members that take the form of diverse and varied characters, a clear and obvious antagonist, very clearly defined rules, and absolutely no real surprise to the plot.

What this title may lack in the more memorable qualities of classic RPGs, it more than makes up for with its clever gameplay and cast of characters — while it may not be filled with grand, epic moments, Lost Dimension instead is filled with situations and events that will make you think twice.

Lost Dimension is a game with great ideas, entertaining and different, presented in a very basic way since it does not look or sound spectacular, but if you give it a chance can give you many hours of fun trying to find traitors. If you are a fan of RPGs and graphic novels and you have a PS Vita give it a chance.

Lost Dimension is an engaging action-RPG. I would like to complete it to see what The End and SEALED’s relationship is, and why The End has put the world into such disarray. I see potential in Lost Dimension as a series, but better hands and creative eyes need to work on it going forward. Although I like the concept of exposing a traitor within your ranks, the SEALED characters aren’t great. I don’t really care about them, but I do care about the plot. Lost Dimension is a solid first step towards something much better.

Taken as a full product, Lost Dimension is one of the most unique Tactical RPGs that I've played in a long time. Although not everything about it is 100% perfect, enough about the game is unique and interesting that it can easily be recommended to both fans and newcomers to the genre.

Lost Dimension is greatly held back by its inability to keep up the pressure of the disappointing betrayal system and its poorly written story. Still, this RPG manages to find its footing with its excellent combat system and interesting character abilities. Though the enemy balance frustratingly swayed from time to time, it was genuinely fun to come up strategies to overcome each levels challenges.

Lost Dimension is a well thought out tactical RPG, but it’s the traitor system which is the star of the game. It constantly makes you second guess your choices as you progress, but it comes at the cost of a compelling story. If you’re looking for a tactical RPG on PS3 or Vita then Lost Dimension is worth a go, but don’t expect it to blow you away.

Lost Dimension isn't a game for the impatient. Learning the combat system and paying attention to each and every line of dialogue requires a large amount of focus but can feel massively rewarding when you get it just right. Those willing to invest will find that the loveable characters and attractive art style provide more than enough incentive to replay the game multiple times, but the generic story and often frustrating judgement system prove to be traitors at times.

Still, the game is an enjoyable romp, especially due to its inclusion of the turncoat mechanic into the mix to freshen up its more standard JRPG elements. If you're looking for a solid Japanese RPG that's a tad different from the norm, Lost Dimension is worth taking a stab at.

'Lost Dimension' really had the chance to be something special. The premise, and story itself are actually quite interesting, and paint an interesting world outside the tower the characters are trapped in. However, when the core of the game is rotten, it's hard to salvage the whole title, and therefore it's very hard to give this Atlus title a recommendation. If you're an RPG fan that really doesn't mind battles that are slow as molasses, you might want to give it a try, though—sitting around fifteen to twenty hours for a playthrough, it's pretty short for an RPG and may be worth a weekend romp.

Lost Dimension certainly doesn’t make a great first impression. On the surface, the visuals aren’t up to scratch, the plot is fairly hackneyed and the turn-based RPG battles aren’t exactly revolutionary. However, there is one particularly unique gameplay mechanic that somehow manages to keep pushing you forward, eager to progress.

Lost Dimension has an interesting premise that the character writing can’t quite support, although the unique, possibly unintended tone that paints Sho as a complete sociopath certainly doesn’t hurt. The tactical turn-based combat is competent and the changing traitors force players to experiment with different psychic abilities.
