    A great display of Wii Ware's potential!

    This game is one of the coolest games on the Wii Ware. You control a young boy and can make him jump by using wind (using the wii remote). The game is set in an ancient Japanese setting. This is also ...

    My 2nd WiiWare game, I was a little skeptical about this one. The sceenshots looked really good, but I thought about waiting for reviews. I'm sure glad I didn't, because this game is really good! Y...

    A great game with cute graphics and originality.

    This game is so fun to play and so nice to look at. Not everyone will enjoy it because of it's simplicity but for non-gamer it's a gem. The control are easy to use with a little bit of practice. With ...

    Good value, surprising quality

    Rated on May 13, 2008 by Darthmatt

    For $10, this game looks great, and the controls are smooth. Lost winds is a 3D side scrolling adventure with a visual style reminiscent of The legend of Zelda, the Wind Waker. It starts off pretty si...

    A much needed breath of fresh air.

    Rated on May 13, 2008 by edubuccaneer

    With the first crop of Wiiware games on the U.S Wii, comes LostWinds. Developed by Frontier, exclusively for Wiiware, it's one of the best looking games among the titles first put out on the service. ...

    Better than a lot of the more expensive games out now...and it's only $10!

    I don't know if it was the quirky introduction to this game's first trailer or the fact that you were going to be able to control the power of the wind, but this game had me intrigued from day 1. For...

    A short, but truly amazing experience from start to finish.

    The game will immpress you from begining to end, to bad the end part comes too soon, even if the game is only $10. I have to say, the music is wonderful, I just love the direction that they took, it's...

    This is the kind of game we all bought a Wii for.<br /> Very ambitious and promising.

    Rated on July 09, 2009 by evrdayblues

    This is it, a hell of a start to a new franchise that promises to entertain us for many years to come. In LostWinds you play as a boy named Toku and you quickly gain control of the wind spirit Enril....
