Easy but good adventure game.

I really enjoyed this game, great and fun to play, good characterization, nice music, nice graphics, and the puzzles fit very well into the game. The puzzles are quite easy though, hence the notch down, you will never ever get stuck - but on the plus side, this helped the game story whizz along nicely. This game shows where point-and-click games need to go, better graphics, better characterization, and puzzles embedded in the game. It's not there yet, but Lost Horizon for me is definitely one the the better games of its genre to be got. If you liked Broken Sword, Syberia or Secret Files, add this to your collection.

I really enjoyed this game, great and fun to play, good characterisation, nice music, nice graphics, and the puzzles fit very well into the game (as commented by another). It's a point-and-click game, so my score is balanced to that genre.
