|He almost dyed!.... Get it?... No?... oh.|
Fantastic adventure games have suddenly become hard to come by. Usually, all you had to do to acquire one was to look upon the "PC Games" isle at a local, inconspicuous department store. Rare and precious, like rectangular-shaped gems, these little boxes hid amongst the many other "regular titles" that you'd grown to ignore. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. Upon visiting the desperately out-dated "PC Games" isle, the most you'll find is a brand new copy of Norton Anti-Virus 2002 or one of those ridiculously stupid hidden object titles that I will always continue to refuse as real adventure games for as long as they exist. Considering that the base mechanic of hidden objects titles is an exploitation of a problem that plagues adventure games, I can only concur that anyone who enjoys playing them also enjoys watching paint dry. To my delight, however, Lost Horizon was not one of those horrible abominations associated with the genre of adventure gaming... or a cleverly repackaged Norton Anti-Virus 2002 CD. Lost Horizon, was actually, in many ways, the great real adventure game I had wanted for a long time.
