Lost Kingdoms review

Reviewed July 20, 2002

Jason Venter says: "It's got none of those elements that make someone sit up and notice. Instead, Lost Kingdoms relies on that 'diamond in the rough' sort of theory. If you can get past the somewhat rough exterior, what lies inside is a true gem. The problem is that getting past that exterior takes enough effort that the overall experience isn't as rosy as it might otherwise have been."

Now that better RPGs came out on Gamecube, The Lost Kingdoms series quickly faded into gamers' memory. Can't blame them though, as Lost Kingdoms is a very forgettable game. Its short length, shallow storyline and non-intriguing quest give a bad first impression of it. It's clearly obvious..."
