  • Conclusion: Overall, Lost Horizon is good game that falls a bit too short in some areas to really be great. At its best the game is fun, there’s no question of that, and the graphics and music hold up their end of the adventure easily.

  • Pros: Logical puzzle solving that is both challenging and enjoyable. Brilliant Backgrounds. Enjoyable characters despite voice acting issues.
  • Cons: 3D characters and artwork clash at times. Voice work sometimes doesn't match with what is occurring in the game.

  • Conclusion: As I watch the introduction sequence of Lost Horizon , a travel montage ripped straight out of an Indiana Jones film, I found myself humming John Williams' famous theme tune. And the theme is almost the only thing missing, as the game could have been based on a forgotten script hidden away somewhere...
  • Pros: Nice pacing, inviting locations, good for beginners.
  • Cons: Not challenging enough, random puzzle solutions, the story fails to grab our attention.
