This is a real hidden gem of a traditional point and click adventure. On seeing the title screen it becomes obvious how much care has gone into every aspect of this game.
The plot and cinematic style of Lost Horizon are a homage to adventure films of an 'Indiana Jones' type. It's all about a reluctant hero saving the world from Nazis who are after powerful mystical secrets and has everything you'd expect: biplane fights, secret mystical locations all over the world, ridiculous car chases and cutscenes of implausible fights on Nazi trucks. Oh, of course, the spunky irritating sidekick/love interest - I suppose nothing's perfect.
If you have played the LucasArts classic 'Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis,' you'd probably find this is really similar in writing, plot depth and gameplay style and there are other things that will make you think the writers were trying to bring back the old Lucas Arts classics. For those who haven't...
The best bits
-The plot is daft but fun and interesting with lots of mystery, pseudoscience and silly cutscene action.
- This is a properly long game. Really good value for money. 12-15 hours gameplay I'd say.
-The puzzles are mostly combining inventory items together or with objects in the environment. These are (with a few glaring exceptions) very logical.
- The visuals are gorgeous.
-The voice acting is excellent.
-The music was good though not hugely memorable.
-The interface was easy to use with one exception (see below)
-Some of the puzzles cannot be solved until you've examined an object to death because your player character is a fool that needs everything spleed out to him.
-There seems to be a minor bug where when you try to solve a puzzle correctly with an object, the game doesn't recognise which object you're trying to use. It always works by the third attempt.
- The two cursor interface can make some puzzles a bit easy.
Highly recommended, particularly if you like inventory based point and clicks with engaging plots.
