Lost Kingdoms – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Violence

Parents have nothing to fear. Despite the combat-oriented action, there's no blood or gore at all. Likewise, there is no sex or questionable language. My only heads-up would be to the more religiously conservative parents, since a few of the creatures are demonic in nature.

Gamers in general are in for a fast-paced, easy to learn action game that will not disappoint. The fantasy theme is done right, the monster-collecting is addicting, and the entire game is very simple and easy to get into. It's on the short side, but it's a winner.

Fans of Magic: The Gathering will want to take special notice of Lost Kingdoms since the game has similar themes, similar creatures and plays better than any of the other Magic: The Gathering action titles.

RPG Fans should stay away from this game. There are practically no elements that are qualify it as a console RPG, and the fast arcade-like action will be a turn-off to people who prefer turn-based systems. Don't be fooled by the advertising.

Fans of FromSoft will not be disappointed. While Lost Kingdoms is a bit of a departure from their usual formulas, their standard of gameplay excellence comes shining through. Another top-notch game from the world's most underappreciated studio.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have no difficulty with Lost Kingdoms. All information is presented in full text, and there are no significant auditory cues.
