Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that in this survival sim game, shipwreck victims stranded on an island must gather resources to survive - if they don't receive enough sustenance they will collapse and the game will end. Weapons like bows and spears can be crafted and used to hunt animals like fish and chickens to eat.
Is It Any Good?
Mini-games like hunting and combining different ingredients to create tasty recipes are fun, and the idea of using whatever primitive materials are on-hand to survive is a challenging one, but the daily grind of keeping all of the people healthy can start to wear thin. Traversing the island can be a slow and tedious process, and some important locations (such as fresh water sources) are inconvenient and time-consuming to get to. It's not always clear what you're supposed to be doing next, and there aren't quite enough points of interest on the island to make random exploring consistently rewarding. While Lost in Blue 3 certainly has its moments, it will take a patient gamer to stick it out to the end.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
