Lost Horizon was a very enjoyable experience. This game has it all, nazi's, evil scientists, Tibetan monks, henchmen with weapons, and beautiful women. The main protagonist is Fenton Paddock, a down and out pilot who finds himself trapped in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is quick witted and often hilarious. One of the main drawbacks of my recent adventure game purchases has been the quality of the voice acting has been very low. This was not the case with Lost Horizon. The accents of the different characters are convincing and the delivery is very smooth. Nothing can kill my immersion faster than a character speaking who sounds like an actor reading a line. As far as the puzzles go, I did not come across any that required a guide, as they all seemed very rational. Overall, if you enjoy point & click adventures with puzzles that aren't illogical, voice acting that is top notch, and en exciting story, you need to pick this up!

You can tell a lot about the game by its ending, or - more precisely - by the feeling you get when you've reached it. If you feel like "at last! my suffering is over", or "and that's it?!", or "wtf was that?!", it means the game probably did not deserve to be finished at all. If you forgot where you are or who you are and it was you who was that guy who kissed the girl in the end - that is the sign of a great game. But when it comes to _good_ games, one can always be recognised when you feel sad that it's over. And that's exactly how I felt when I finished Lost Horizon.

The game is safe from anything edgy or grandious to be an outstanding title, and that's probably why I have completely missed it when it came out. But with its beautiful art, solid feel, enjoyable puzzles, super easy mechanics and pretty good voice acting, it's far from being a waste of time. I'm sad it's over not because I'm disappointed, but because I enjoyed the process of playing it. It was not an epic rollercoaster ride, but a journey equally pleasant all way through. With this game you get the kick in playing it, not in getting it finished.

Influenced heavily by adventure films and games of the past, but not making a direct adaptation of the Lost Horizon novel, developers played safe to avoid a disappointment. It feels as if they are saying: "We are not making revolutions here, we are just following the great tradition". Lost Horizon will not shock you, will not turn your world upside down, will not break the grounds, but if you like the classic feel of adventure titles, you will enjoy it. It will not insult your intellect, or upset your ear with speech impedimented voice actors. It will please your eye with the striking beauty of its backgrounds and sometimes will give you a chuckle or two with a clever joke. The idea of hand-drawn backgrounds and 3D-animated characters seems to be the perfect approach. The only thing that stops this game from being great is that developers did not have a megalomaniac urge to make the best game in the world. They just did a good game, and that's what it is. And I think, it is better to make a good game and succeed at that, than try making a great game and fail to deliver.

So, if you like old Indiana Jones games, or the Broken Sword series, you will most likely enjoy this one. Just don't expect much - and you'll be pleasantly surprised on every corner. I was!

Love this game. Filled with smart and sarcastic humour and great puzzeling situations that are not al easy, but not overly difficult to figure out either. Great story line too and really is just a lot of fun to play.

To start of I loved this game! and it's a worth a try for sure. Someone said this is like an Indiana Jones rip-off, and to be honest that what I liked about it. It feels like you ARE watching an adventure movie where you get to do some of the directing, and it does feels like an Indiana Jones movie. The main character Fenton is quirky, full of himself, and sometimes an ar$e but that what made interacting with objects and people much more fun -I couldn't wait to hear what stupid and pompous things he has to say. The story is interesting. The puzzles are simple at times and they mostly do follow common sense. Two things I had been a bit disappointed about: I would've liked to see more of Kim, and a more climatic ending -having an epilogue would've been nice.

An extremely high-quality adventure puzzle game with very good art design and voice acting. The story and setting itself is similar to a 1930's pulp novel and perhaps more specifically, to the Indiana Jones/Romancing the Stone type of adventure action movie. It's great.

Overall, I thought this was a fun point and click adventure. It doesn't compare to classics of the genre such as Full Throttle or The Longest Journey, but I still found it entertaining.

Pros: Beautiful artwork. Plenty of challenging and rewarding puzzles. One play-through took me about 11 hours. Fairly stable product (only locked up once).

Cons: The story is so-so, and I found a couple of the jokes offensive. A few early puzzles were far too easy, and a couple puzzles later in the game made no sense at all; I beat them only by trying things totally at random. Also, the main character is kind of a jerk and not particularly likeable.

Overall, though, a fine game at full price ($10) and a steal if it's on sale for less.

I adore this game. Yes, it's a recycled Indiana Jones knock off--but frankly, I wish there were a few more games like it. Lost Horizon is not complicated or complex gameplay, and the puzzles are kinda crazy at times, but it's just so much fun. The voice acting for Fenton Paddock was perfect--he had a lot of personality and was consistent through the game. One of my favorite lines toward the end of the game when you try to get him to fight someone is, "When have you ever seen me fight anyone??"

It's a classic point and click adventure, so if you're used to that kind of gameplay there will be few surprises. It's all about how engaged you are by the story and the voice acting. My advice would be to try the demo, and if you find it fun, this will be worth the buy.

Lost Horizon is a traditional point and click adventure game inspired heavily by Indiana Jones and the pulp action adventures of the 1930s. The game isn't ground breaking and there is nothing in it that anyone who grew up playing Sierra and Lucasarts adventures games won't have seen before, but the charm of the game makes it something worth playing.

Many adventure games fall flat on their puzzles, but Lost Horizon manages to make them both logical and easy to understand. More seasoned adventure game players might find them a little bit too easy, but they always make sense and leaving the player wondering how they hell they were ever supposed to think of that.

I recommend this game to anyone who has ever wanted to be a globe trotting 1930s adventurer.

Also you get to shoot down a Nazi plane using a bag of flour.

This game was great. Pure and simple.

This is my first review, so i'll keep it short(ish).
I struggle to find anything wrong with this game, but if I were to point at one thing it would be that some of the cinema-scenes were a bit long. Sometimes it felt as if you were watching the game rather than playing it.
That said I really enjoyed this. The puzzles were good (and I have played alot of point and click) and they did not feel to repetitive. They were also challenging but not over hard. Every time I got stuck I just had to rethink the situation, and usually the solution would present itself. I'm not proud to say this but I have a tendensy to use walkthroughs whenever I get stuck for too long. I only did that once here and that turned out to be a puzzle that used color. I'm colorblind so that does'nt really count....

I thought it was a good story to, and unlike some of the other reviewers I rather liked Fenton as the hero. He's a bit cheeky and a bit of an anti hero, but after playing many of these games I find that usually is the case. I did not find it laugh out loud funny, but I found his coments rather amusing.
I also liked all the different places one got to travel to. It made it feel like you really were on a quest, unraveling an ancient secret, unlike many games that just puts you right near the goal at the start.
The graphics were also very well done. They made the atmosphere complete and added to the story in a great way.

All in all this game really sucked me in from the get-go. It had a movie quality about it that really made me feel like I was there. It never felt boring and I was rather sad when it ended. (Thats a good thing.) I spent 17 hours on this game and thats not half-bad considering it cost me only about £8.
I never replay games, but I'm really considering doing it with Lost Horizon.
I give it a solid 9/10.
If you like adventure and ancient mysteries this is a no brainer.

One of my favourite jet-setting adventure games of recent times. Very Indiana Jones-ish with an entertaining plot that keeps you playing.

A surprisingly enjoyable game. Heavily inspired by Indiana Jones, the 1930s setting is a little different than most adventure games out there at the minute.

The graphics and backgrounds are beautifully drawn, and the voice acting is decent enough that you're not left cringing. Unfortunately, like the other games made by the publisher, the cutscenes can often drag on a little longer than necessary.

However, if you're a Indiana Jones/point-and-click fan, then I definitely recommend it.

The story of this game is... well... It starts out somewhat interesting and then just kinda go downhill from there. Like the Secret Files games, you get to travel to a lot of different locations around the world. In this game, it feels a bit farfetched at times and it seems the enemy always has you on their radar, no matter where you are.

There were way too many scenarios where characters are involved in lethal accidents which they survived unscratched. If you see someone in a lethal accident, your normal reaction is probably if the person survived at all. These characters don't react that way. So they don't even act mildly concerned even when they watch such things happen. I actually anticipated a character would die in an accident, but it's like nothing really happened. The people watching the accident doesn't even rejoice in seeing them again, as if just expecting them to survive such a thing.

As for the main characters, I honestly didn't like that Fenton was the main character and not Kim. He is quite a jerk and especially towards Kim. Kim was in my oppinion the one who should have had the focus. She has a good sense of morale, she is caring, brave and really kicks some ♥♥♥. Without her, Fenton wouldn't really manage. It really sucks that the characters are so obviously forced together and she is deliberately put in situation to make her the damsel in distress, to allow him to save her and make him a hero. It's a common thing you see in a lot of games and movies, the main character is so unlikeable, the only way you can force the love interest to like him is by ending up in some accident he saves her from.

The game is unfortunately a bit short. It ends quite abruptly and in a bit of silly way. It kinda feels like when they've finally put all the pieces together, even the game gets bored of itself. You get a really over-the-top ending and then the rest of the story feels very forced.

I do like that the game tried some new things involving the puzzle solving, where one character is driving a car and you have to respond to things with the other, while the car is in motion. It's done in a way where you don't get your character constantly leaving the scene/room in a short time limit, you get apply amount of time to figure out how to solve this incident. (Thankfully the streets of China are endless and there's no traffic when you need to escape from bad guys.)
There's also some creative ways to solve puzzles, a bit over-the-top, bit it was still funny to watch. The way Fenton deals with an enemy pilot is so silly it's awesome.
They also have the”control two characters at once” which is one of my favorite concepts. At one point, you get a rather tricky problem solving where you control two characters in two different times, affecting the other person depending on what time they are in. I thought this was brilliant. It's unfortunately a bit short though.

I am a bit so-so as if I wish to recommend this game or not. It's not a fantastic game, but it's not dreadful either. The controls are responsive, the graphics are nice and the voice work is acceptable. (compared to A new Beginning - Final Cut) There's some good humor and the game will last about 6 hours. I did like it much more than "Secret Files 3". I'd recommend buying it when it is on sale.

The first tier and the end of the game is a really good Indiana Jones like adventure, but the middle just look like a filler to increase the amount of gameplay hours. Sometimes, games should be shorter to get better...

Overall I very much enjoyed Lost Horizon. The story telling was good and the characters were mostly believable. Every now and then the dead sound of a character here and there made the dialog sound stupid. The setting is very much an Indiana Jones motif, one that I haven't experienced in a point and click adventure game since... well Indiana Jones. While some of the puzzles are a little challenging, most are relatively easy or straight forward.

If you are a fan of the point and click adventure game, this is definitely one to pick up and is great for beginners of the genre.

An enjoyable point and click adventure with a great Indiana Jones-esque vib to it. Logical puzzles, lots of exotic locations and an intriguing story with some heart to it. My only complaint was that I found it a little to 'talky' - too many long cutsceens to sit through - but they service the story so they didn't stiffle my enjoyment to much.

Fun, old school game that's cheesy at times but reminds me of an older version of Tomb Raider or Uncharted. I enjoyed the story and game play is simple with some puzzles mixed in. Not as good as Syberia (story depth wise) but still good overall.

Highly enjoyable point & click adventure game in the vein of Indiana Jones and Flight of the Amazon.

The artwork in this game is magnificent and every scene you step into looks astonishing and highly detailed. This is backed up with, for the most part, good animations as well.

As with similar games you get to travel around the world to interesting places to solve puzzles and clues to get to your final destination for a showdown. The puzzles are well thought out, creative and logical (to a certain extent). Apart from what seems a bit silly back and forth movement through scenes I found the puzzles and collecting quite entertaining. It is not very hard, but it's not a breeze either.

I found the game to be fairly long considering the lengths of other adventure games I've played. It is filled with a lot of storytelling and dialogue that might throw some people off, but for fans of the genre I would consider this game a must. I found the story iself both interesting and engaging for the most part, but it dwindled a little towards the latter part of the game. The story is mostly mature with a healthy dosage of cheeky humor which gave me a few laughs and nods along the way. I thought it suited the main protagonist, but some might find him a bit unlikeable. However, the voice acting in this game could be a lot better. It's not all bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I feel that better voice acting would have levitated the game to make it even more engaging and become more mainstream, though I can totally sympatize with development budgets for games like these at the time of release. Luckily we are entering a new era for adventure games that will hopefully raise the budgets of similar projects.

Not only is this game a must for fans of adventure games, but it should also be a good candidate for people wanting to test out the genre. I highly recommend it. I also look forward to the sequel that seems to be scheduled for sometime in 2014.

I rate this game 8/10
