About This Game

LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias is the follow-up to the award-winning title ‘LostWinds’.

In this new adventure players are able to instantly transform Mistralis between Summer and Winter, harnessing the brilliance of nature: frozen winter ponds and waterfalls become deep, teeming summer pools and chambers in which to dive and unlock secrets, enemies can be frozen or doused, and the very air itself used to form snowballs or moisture-laden clouds.

Other amazing new abilities include the cyclone, which can be used to transport Toku, smash powerful enemies and even drill through the rocks of Mistralis’ diverse, richly interactive Chilling Peaks and Melodia City areas.

Incredible game. I purchased the game on wii-ware a long while ago, and I enjoyed it thouroughly.

As for the game itself, I would say it is much better than the previous installment. It continues where it left off, but if you are forced to play only one game, I'd say play this one. The season change mechanic merges wonderfully with the metroid-vania style exploration gameplay. It makes the game, as a whole, a wonderful and unique experience.

As for the port, it's a competant port. It works completely fine: No stuttering, visuals are still wonderful, and the mechanics/controls are slightly updated. However, it does seem to lack very many general options such as keybindings, graphical options, etc. But that is most likely due to the fact that it is a wii-ware port.

Yes I know its an metroidvania platformer: a genre often critisized for oversaturating the market. But its "wind" mechanic and wonderful exploration puzzles show a remarkable appretiation for craftsmanship that are rarely seen in games.

lost winds 2 winter of the melodias is a good game
and sequel of lost winds it take's place after the first game
once you get to ice mountains you will need fire to survive untill you get get the suit to keep you warm.
controls are good but a bit floaty at times
there are plenty of secrets to unlock if you are desperate to find everything.
recommend lost winds was good but i think the sequel is better

This is nice game. Its abit longer than the first. I finished the game in about 4 hours. Once I get all he collectables, I doubt I will play it again.

This game need sound controls badly. The music while beautiful, is too loud compared to the sound effects. The same control issues in the first game are in the second.

A great series of games here. I played them both when they first came out on the wii. They were the only 2 games I ever bought on WiiWare, except for the VC game Paper Mario 64. I would have to say the price of 15 dollars for both games is fair enough, they are both beautiful and atmospheric experiences. You can finish both games together in less then 5 hours, but I always found them nice to come back to every once and a while when I had them on the Wii. If 5 hours doesn't sound worth 15 dollars to you, wait for a sale. Keep in mind the puzzles are not hard, but the atmosphere is great. The first game is very linier, while the second is more open ended, yet still very linier.

Basically more of the same. There are some new mechanics, most notably changing the seasons between winter and summer, and some new enemy types, but nothing feels radically different from the first game. It's even almost exactly as long, which means this is also a recommendation on sale. No attempt whatsoever is made to explain the plot of the first game, and your old powers are available from the start with little explanation, so I'd strongly suggest playing LostWinds first.

New pros and cons for the sequel:

- There are a few new music tracks
- You get a parka-style suit about 30 minutes in that's adorable.
- Season changing generally adds to the puzzles
- The story is a bit more developed, although it's still little more than functional.
- The god-awful helicopter seeds from the first game only make one appearance.
- The puzzles have a bit more variety, although the number of different mechanics is still limited.
- Easy 100% if that's your thing - I got almost all of the collectibles without trying, and the other achievements are required by the story.

- There are still far too few music tracks
- Enemies are still almost entirely annoyances rather than challenges.
- The two main enemy types are just Glorps that can't be killed without using fire/cold.
- There's a follower you get towards the end that's unbelievably slow compared to you. It's used for some decent puzzles, but waiting for it to catch up is frustrating.

All in all, it's not going to change anyone's mind. Get it if you liked LostWinds, don't bother if you didn't.

I recommend buying this sequel IF you have played the first game. I wouldn't necessarily play this as a stand-alone game.

- Stunning graphics
- A lot of attention to detail (as you can interact with the background and surroundings)
- Beautiful and relaxing music
- Tight controls (even tigher than the first game in my opinion)
- New well-implemented mechanics
- Defintely reminds you of its roots (Don't fix what ain't broken!)
- The end boss fight was actually a lot of fun!

- The story is... simple and cute, but it would not be enough to carry the game. Maybe I was just disappointed that it is not linked with the original's story.
- No character development or background descriptions as the game assumes that you know all the protagonists which appeared in the first game
(- This game is a relatively easy and short platformer as I 100%'d it with the above mentioned time)

The cons aren't a big deal if you know the first game - as this is a very enjoyable sequel.
