• Responsive, fun magic casting
  • Strategy that requires thought
  • Addictive, challenging gameplay
  • Sometimes, it's just too hard
  • Hard to choose and control monsters
  • Learning curve is too intense
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.

    First! If they made a sequel to this, it could be the most addictive game ever.
