Ratings and Reviews
This was a tough one to write. I was looking forward to the sequel. It may be just me but the scenes did not all seem “equal”. I don’t know if a different process was used or if there artists that were added or left during production or what. Some scenes were gorgeous, others...a little more on the cartoony side. The IPad version seemed really twitchy...and several scenes required starting over ignoring there was a save. The end scene used a horrible animation of the child while the father looked more on the “real-ish” side. The end also seemed to be just kind of thrown together. Personally I prefer a “little” bit of logic to what you need or could use in a scene.... yes, you use could “possibly” do that you could do that but really??? I dare you try some of those little scenarios...a little bit of reality would be nice. Some of the contraptions were pretty out there. I also hate the touch this, run and touch that and figure out a long sequence spin twice, and poof a magic door appears. It ruins a story. I gave it three stars just because I was determined to make it to the end.
While I mostly enjoyed LH and LH2, in my opinion both games suffer from the same issues: Too many lengthy, somewhat boring movie sequences to explain the backstory where one can only watch but not interact. Using the inventory in close up scenes sometimes is horrible as somehow the items in the inventory get moved to the right and one has to close and reopen the inventory to be able to select an item propery again. I also do not care at all for the timed sequences, where one has to perform the necessay actions within some time. And the sequences where one could get shot are not my favorites either. Lastly there was at least one riddle I didn’t understand even after consulting the builtin walkthrough. It simply didn’t make any sense to me. But as I wrote at the beginning both games were still enjoyable and I played them to the end. They are quite long and the riddles differ and were mostly difficult enough for me. Thanks for reading.
What went so wrong?
Let me start by saying the first lost horizon was top notch in every possible way. From the length, the scenery to sounds, the puzzles were amazing n the voice actors really made it that much better. This game however left me scratching my head. For starters it made absolutely no sense. The characters are confusing as is the storyline. The voices are mediocre at best n don’t fit well. Most of all it’s the hidden objects n puzzles that don’t add up...literally there is zero rhyme to reason on what ur combining n why. When u finally figure it out...by simply combining whatever u can...it doesn’t make any sense. This makes it incredibly difficult to figure out n leaves you confused with no end to a means... This has the basics n could’ve been great, but feel they gave up on this one n didn’t put in the effort it soo needed. Ugh. So sad. Loved the first one,but this left me wanting more...not in a good way!
