It might look like every other Japanese role-playing game (JPRG) on the surface, but this title's unique story, multiple characters, and deep, engaging gameplay should really please gamers. For example, the clever "traitor system" keeps you guessing who the real threat is as your party members are constantly whittled down. What's more, it's completely random, so you'll never know who it is from game to game, and you can replay this numerous times and always be challenged. Lost Dimension also gets better the more you progress through the story and increase your strength and abilities.

Gamers will appreciate the unique backstory and personalities of each agent, not to mention her own unique powers to keep things fresh -- be it freezing enemies and items, teleportating, or stealing someone else's powers. Using tactics on the battlefield adds more depth to the combat as well. There isn't much to complain about, other than some very difficult scenarios that will have you using trial and error to replay missions a slightly different way. The graphics are so-so, but players should be forgiving given the great story and gameplay. Overall, Lost Dimension is a deep, enjoyable, and unique game for those who prefer tactics weaved into role-playing action -- including its sci-fi take on a classic whodunit.
