Lost Horizon is loosely based on the novel of the same name by James Hilton, and infact has more in common with, and also appears inspired by, a typical Indiana Jones adventure. I just finished the game and I have a lot of positive things to say about it. The game nicely represents the classic point-&-click adventure genre. All the ingredients that the genre fans would look for are present: a solid story, good puzzles, good dialogues and voice-acting, great graphics and cinematics and some atmospheric background music. The rich, colorful backdrops for the various locations are particularly well-drawn and provide a great feeling of immersion. The cinematics are also of high quality compared with the usual standard for adventure games. Character animation can be a little off in places though.

Puzzles are mostly inventory based, often consisting of applying MacGyver-style logic to find solutions. The game consists of seven chapters of decent length that would require several hours to finish. However, despite the length, it may not take players longer than a few days of dedicated play to finish; the reason being that the puzzles are not all that difficult. Especially for experienced players, Lost Horizon may not provide enough of a challenge. A big reason is the fact that only a handful of scenes with few inventory items open up at a time, coupled with the fact that all hot-spot locations can be identified with the click of a button. On the plus side, players may hardly find themselves stuck on a puzzle for too long for frustration to develop. Another gripe I have is that there is very little character development. This is at least in part due to attempting to follow in the veins of Indiana Jones too closely, thus suffering from lack of originality and stereotypical characters.

While this game certainly isn't in the same class as the Myst series by Cyan, I found it very enjoyable. I played this game with my 13yr old daughter. The puzzles weren't too difficult so she didn't get frustrated with it. But, the best part of the game was the humorous dialog of the main character. We laughed quite a few times during the game and would try certain things just to hear what the response would be. The graphics weren't visually stunning and the characters weren't fully developed, but it wasn't that kind of game. It was more of a casual fun entertaining kind of game. And, it wasn't too short either.

This is excellent interactive fiction - exciting story, cinematic, eye-pleasing graphics, and with well-integrated MacGuyver puzzles. It can hold its own with classic adventures from Lucas, and for me was definitely more fun than say plodding through Nancy Drew's chores. If you are a reader and puzzle-solver and liked the Indiana Jones movies and games, you may find this to be one of the best games you have played in a long time.
I bought this as a digital download; that worked fine.

This game, which had NO connection with James Hilton's famous novel, "Lost Horizon," takes the player from England to China to Tibet to Kathmandu, to Germany and to Northern India and even to "Tropical India" in pursuit of an amulet and the "Eye of the Tiger," which will take the protagonist and his attractive oriental female companion to the fabled "Shambala."

This game is ALL ABOUT THE QUEST, which is what I just love, and there are no hidden object games to bog you down!

The game is replete with many interesting and moderately difficult puzzles and even a tricky maze that our hero, Fenton, must traverse.

All of the voices were superb, as were the music and graphics.

I highly recommend this game.

I walked into "Lost Horizon" not expecting much -- I bought it during Amazon's sale for only three bucks -- and was pleasantly surprised by the depth of both the story and the gameplay. However, while it's a mostly solid purchase with a lot to offer, the bland voice acting and sometimes meandering story lessen an otherwise entertaining product. The story itself is classic fare: a rescue mission turns into a hunt for a fabled treasure, then to saving the world from Nazis. The main character is mostly likeable, but his voice actor needs to learn how to act -- or at least how to read the damn script faster. Most of the time I felt like I was plodding along as Fenton Paddock read to me his thoughts on things, and the other voice actors are fair with a few bright spots nestled here and there. And while the story sometimes delves into over-exposition -- seriously, the information dumps can be really heavy here -- when the gameplay clicks in the game earns its stay. Puzzles steadily ramp up the difficulty by slowly becoming more and more complex; a nicely done learning curve. And they all make sense! Be prepared to look at the entirety of the environment, however, as some actions only become doable after Fenton has noticed what needs to be done. I had times where I knew what I needed to do, but I had to guide Fenton along first in order for him to put the pieces together. Not terrible, but sometimes annoying. There's also an egregiously convoluted plot point near the end -- I won't spoil it, but good lord they could have skipped a step and it would have been fine -- but otherwise it's entertaining enough to warrant a ten dollar price point.Read more ›
