Having been a member of GB since time immemorial- or since 1998 - I now face a dilemma.
I think that a lot of my brain cells have given up the ghost, but I would really like to test the few that I have in operational conditions against a new game for which I have happy memories of their predecessors.

These two are Lost Horizon and Syberia.

I note that Lost Horizon 2 and Syberia 3 are out there and feel that I should test my failing faculties against one or other of these.

GB have provided me with some info on each of the candidates - some good and some less good - but I would really appreciate input on which one I should choose.

Any thoughts?

If it HAS to be one or the other, I'd say Lost Horizon 2.

Syberia costs nearly 3x as much, both of them are not a worthy addition to their IP so I don't think either one are great choices. But I'd go with the cheaper one.
Don't feed the Trolls

I agree with Ana, but if memory serves (someone please correct me if I am wrong), there are a couple of action sequences in Lost Horizon 2 that I remember some players here having trouble with. Just mentioning it in case that might be an issue.

Marian is right. There were people who couldn't get past the action sequences in Lost Horizon 2 and were asking for saved games in Hints.
For example ***here***.

You might be better off replaying the original versions of Syberia and Lost Horizon.
