Lost Horizon is your classic 3rd person point & click adventure game. Story + puzzles + inventory items = progress, yet LH is head & shoulders above allot of adventure games of this type that i have played over the past 7 years or so, and hopefully my review will reveal why. Set during the 1930's around a time where the Nazi's are searching for mythical weapons/objects to help them crush their enemies, you see where this is getting like Indiana Jones, yes ? well thats part of it anyway.

LH story starts off somewhere in Tibet around 1936, in a Monestery, where some British soliders(unkown to them) & the protectors of an unkown weapon, kept secret for so long, are under attack from Nazi forces, to gain control of this weapon & use it to crush their enemies. However things dont go quite to plan for the Countess, a German scientist in charge of gathering these mytical objects, as our games hero has something to say about that, his name...Fenton Paddock. Visualy Fenton looks almost identical to the iconic Indiana Jones character, minus the Fedora hat & whip of course, plus he is an ex-british solider. Kind of like the british version of Broken Swords lead Broken Sword: Trilogy (PC DVD), Geroge Stobbart, witty, cocky & yet a more charming character, along the lines of say 007's James Bond. Fenton, dismissed from the army years ago due to a tragic set of events, is now a smuggler(Hans solo type) who has found himself in toruble with the Hong Kong triads due to his new line of work. and after a lucky escape, is asked by his old commanding officer to go on the search for Fenton's best old friend, Richard.

It''s good to see that adventure gaming isn't dead yet. This game is very good - interesting story, simple controls and puzzles that actually make sense. When you combine inventory items, it's never a random "combine item A with every other item because I'm at my wits' end" type of deal - you know why you are combining item A with time B. Having said that, it does tend to make the puzzles somewhat easy and you find yourself drifting along without being challenged in any way.

Graphically, Lost Horizon doesn't break any boundaries but it's pleasant to look at, and on the whole, the voice acting is performed well.

I would recommend this to fans of the point and click adventure genre. I also found that it took elements from the Indiana Jones movies (Raiders of the Lost Ark in particular) and the story/some scenes were reminiscent of the old Sierra/Dynamix game 'Heart of China.' Worth a look!

The Broken Sword games were the benchmark for adventure games, i have gone back to those 3 games often simply because no other adventure game suited me. But Lost Horizon makes up where others failed. It's easy to get into, good story, great graphics. Most puzzles are straight forward although some are tough but if you get completly stuck you can use the in-game help or a walkthrough from the net. Brilliant stuff!

I loved this game.

I have been playing point + click adventure games since the first Monkey Island, and Simon The Sorcerer, and Lost Horizon is without a doubt one of the best I've played. Like most other reviewers, if I have to choose a downside, it would be that it is just a tad too easy, but then this does allow the game to move along at a swift pace, akin to a film of the genre.

Broken Sword is one of my all time favourites, not least because of George Stobbarts fantastic characterisation. Some adventure games tend to have a hero or heroine that is lacking in personality, and this can prevent you from becoming completely immersed in the story. I've got to say that I enjoyed playing as Fenton paddock (the hero in Lost Horizon), and there is more than a nod to Indiana Jones (at one point, he is surveying the scene from a window, and says "Nazis....I hate these guys". Fenton Paddock is humerous, the voice-acting is really good, and one of the most important points of all - HE DOES NOT HAVE TO INGAGE IN INNANE BORING CONVERSATION TO ADVANCE IN THE STORY. Sure, there is character interaction, but NOT A WORD IS WASTED in the exchanges, I actually enjoyed the chat. Even with Broken Sword, sometimes I just felt I DON'T CARE ABOUT ALL THIS CRAP THE CHARACTER IS TALKING ABOUT, HARPING ON ABOUT STUFF IN THEIR LIVES THAT HAVE LITTLE OR NO RELEVANCE TO THE PLOT.

TAKE HEED ADVENTURE GAME MAKERS! This is how you keep character interaction interesting, and not over-long. You even get to choose your answer sometimes, which is a nice touch, and it can certainly can change the way you complete a puzzle. This is really only evident earlier on in the game though.
