Susan is back for yet another epic adventure in Lost Lands: The Wanderer. This time, Finuer Steelburn from Lost Lands has come to Earth in the form of the captain of the Grey Flounder to ask Susan for help. His real body has been trapped in eternal slumber in Lost Lands and the worlds might collapse if Susan doesn’t wake him up fast enough!
The core concept of Lost Lands: The Wanderer has been done countless times before, but what makes this game such a stand-out is the flawless delivery. The storyline in The Wanderer develops at just the right pace, with just enough actions to keep you entertained and sufficient explanation to justify for any seemingly-illogical behavior. Not only are the landscapes fascinating to explore, the characters are also very engaging. You will get to meet a range of characters, from friends to foes, from human to inhuman, all of which add complexity to the storyline and to the experience as a whole.
Lost Lands: The Wanderer adopts for FIVE-BN’s signature art style. The visuals are very realistic and are nothing short of stunning. In addition, we were beyond impressed by the animations and the cutscenes in this game. The quality is top-notch, with high frame-rate – kudos to the developer on this one! On the other hand, Lost Lands: The Wanderer falls a little short when it comes to the sounds. This is a very quiet game, perhaps, too quiet. The music is almost nonexistent, which makes the game a little dry at times. Still, the voiceovers are great and complement the characters quite well.
Gameplay wise, Lost Lands: The Wanderer doesn’t do anything unexpected. Advanced players and fans of the series will find the game to be exquisitely-made, but very predictable. The hidden objects scenes are all of a single type, which is the progressive silhouette format – they are entertaining nonetheless. Similarly, the puzzles are mostly familiar, nothing extraordinary.
Luckily, Lost Lands: The Wanderer impresses with its extra content. The Collector’s Edition comes with a solid bonus chapter, a strategy guide, a satisfying range of collectibles, morphing objects, achievements, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, videos, replayable hidden object scenes, replayable puzzles and 20 bonus puzzles.
