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.

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.

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

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.
