Lostmagic can never quite overcome the fact that it's poorly balanced and difficult. Selecting the individual units you want when they're all bunched up can also be a problem, and they'll sometimes strike out on their own, undoing your planning. Between the speedy gameplay, the challenge and the control issues, you're going to die a lot. And that's a drag. But even so, there's a lot to like about this game. It plays to the DS' strengths, and when it all clicks, it's a lot of fun. Just be prepared to brute force your way through a lot of frustrating misfires if you decide to go for it.
