Should I get this game along with the complete series?

I want to watch lost now that its over, I'm never home when its on so I've decided to buy all the seasons on dvd and watch on my schedule. Anyways, does this game add anything to the overall story of lost or is it not even canon?

No. Unless you like being kicked in the face with disappointment.

Then tossed down a well. Dropped rocks on. Tossed into the ocean and eaten by a shark.

Is it that bad? I don't care if the gameplay is terrible but does the story fit into the LOST series at all?

I wasn't talking about the game. 
 
Also, it doesn't matter if the game's story arc fits into the LOST series. 9 out of 10 story arcs of the series don't even fit in there.

From what I've see and read, it's not an awful game, but it's not very good either. Think mediocre. I would recommend watching the series, but skip the game.

Just like half of the actual series, this game isn't canonical.

It's great for a minute, maybe two, to think, "Hey! I'm walking on the same beach as Locke! There goes Vincent! Hey Michael, how does it feel that you'll basically be written out of the show in a couple of seasons?" but that quickly wears off. What you're left with is some of the easiest Achievements you'll find this side of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

@RE_Player92: I got it with seasons 1-5 in a deal i could not pass up, the game is SHORT, and maybe a 1.9 out of 5

That's my favorite feeling in the world.

I spent $10 for it. I thought it was alright... for $10.

The game has an interesting ending but otherwise, no, you shouldn't. Go ahead and buy the series though. Some of the first few seasons is some of the best television ever made.
