The team clearly worked hard to make Lost Sea the best game it could be, and I’m here to confirm that they achieved their goal. The cel-shaded look is great for this one, and the gameplay mechanics are fun and will keep you coming back for more. I had a ton of fun doing my Lost Sea review and I will continue going back to the game as I aim to add that Platinum trophy to my collection!
I’ve enjoyed previous release from eastasiasoft, and I certainly had fun with this colorful release! During my time playing the game for this Lost Sea review I kept coming back to it to do a new run and then another one, learning along the way who the best crew members were, how to defeat large enemies without risking defeat, what skills are more useful early on and which ones I needed to save for right away, and more. If you’re looking for a fun hack and slash game, then you should definitely check this one out!
All in all, this game is very enjoyable to play and I would highly recommend it. It’s very easy to both just pick it up and play for a few minutes or sit in and binge on. I personally think this game would be appropriate for all ages as I fully believe that a younger person could pick this game up and run with it. The game isn’t complicated and is very easy to just run around and explore as you attack anything that moves and pick up anything shiny!
Lost Sea does provide endless replay value and always offers somewhere new to explore so great potential for extended gameplay.
Lost Sea is a unique title that provides a new, casual experience that holds its own on consoles. Though it is not suitable for long play times, it's a great game to kick back and relax with. The colorful world and unique mechanics leave the player with a sense of satisfaction-- until they die and all of that slips away in an instant.
This is a polished hack-n-slash with basic premises and enough grind worthy gameplay to earn some attention. Not as memorable as you'd expect from a trip to the Bermuda Triangle, but it's a great way to escape for a weekend.
Although I enjoyed Lost Sea quite a lot due to its relaxing exploration and rewarding gameplay, its glaring problems get in the way of it being a great game.
One of Lost Sea‘s strongest points, the soundtrack is thematic, and keeps you pushing forward through each island in the chain to reach the boss
The game can be fun to play for a few hours here and there but repetitiveness filters through to the presentation, too, with reused music and visuals that become draining after a while.
Overall Lost Sea is a great Roguelike that sticks to that concept very well without introducing loads of other features that bury the point. The search for the tablets can be an exhilarating or terrifying one depending upon which island you fortunately or unfortunately landed upon as the danger of death is always near very real with only ever having your weapon as a constant companion.
