What's over the horizon?
The original Lost Horizon was a pretty decent little puzzle adventure that played out like a less clever but still quite fun Myst or Lost Files and which made for a fine choice for genre fans. This sequel however, is less impressive and is only really necessary for diehard fans of the original. The story picks up some twenty years after the first one left off, with our hero Fenton Paddock, a former British army officer, now caught up in mysterious events in Tibet, where he will face off against the dastardly Soviets in 1956. The gameplay will be familiar if you've played the first game or any other similar adventures. You get to pick from one of four characters who are chosen as the plot unfolds over six chapters. Most of the action takes place over static screens where you control your character and explore the scene for clues to solve the many puzzles which bar your progress. There are also QTE sections to complete to add some variety while if you get stuck you can access the handy in-game walkthrough. Lost Horizon 2 isn't a bad game but it's very much an average one that has little to wholeheartedly recommend it. The story is an interesting one, with a few twists and turns to keep your hooked to the end, while the game deserves some points for its setting and unusual themes. The puzzles aren't bad but aren't the most compelling of conundrums so seasoned adventurers might find the game a little disappointing in that respect. The visuals are solid but overall you can't help feel this is a little lacking.
