Traveler, I'm very much with you on the opening screen! Aside from maybe The Lost Crown, I have never seen an opening screen that was so impressive. It really accentuates the movie-like feeling of the game, and the entire set-up in general makes you feel as though you are actually in a movie. In fact, talking about it is making me want to play the game again. grin

Lotus, hope it arrives soon! thumbsup

Oh, meryl and traveler, I am so glad to meet you! I am playing The Longest Journey because "everyone" says it is the greatest game ever. I find myself getting bored with it even though there are some great effects in it and the story is intriguing. It has indeed been one of the longest journeys for me.

The Lost Horizon is waiting patiently in its folder for me to finish TLJ so I can start it. Now, after the great reviews on The Lost Horizon, I am even more anxious to get started on it.

Thanks to you all.

Did you ever play Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis ??
That has a great beginning bravo

I often used to play the intro a couple of times before getting down to business with the game laugh

Cheers.

And I wish we had more hunky heroes like Fenton Paddock. (sigh....)
If the majority of point & click gamers are women , why on earth do the developers imagine we can get enthralled by a stick insect with a silly voice. (Nancy Drew, you are an exception)
It's just dawned on me that another reason I prefer first person - apart from the fact that it is more immersive - is that I don't have to see the heroine and see how stupidly inadequate she looks to hike two miles let alone perform tasks of "derring - do".
Does this sound like a rant? Sorry. Just give me a Robert Redford or Harrison Ford please.
Lost Horizon "rocks"!

Mad, sorry I'm late replying to your post! I really need to check this part of the forum more often. slapforehead

No, unfortunately I haven't played Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. That game and The Dig are two older Lucas Arts games I want to pick up someday, as I've heard good things about them. I've only now started collecting the Broken Sword series, so I'll get to the old ones I missed eventually. smile I was more of a Sierra fan in general (though I loved Lucas Arts, too) so I have more of their games all in all. But even with their games, I don't have any Leisure Suit Larrys or Police Quests.

Ah, you guys don't know what you're talking about! The Longest Journey is one of the greatest games of all time, and everyone should know this. evil

(Only kidding, I know everyone has different tastes. wink I mean, I don't like coconut, and a lot of people thing I'm strange. grin )

Hummm, I don't like coconut either and I did enjoy The Longest Journey. As my Grandmother used to say, "Tastes differ." And Venus, my Lost Horizon arrived. Now if I can only screw up the courage to finish the last timed part of Still Life 2....!! rolleyes

Lotus, maybe there's something to that. lol

Glad to hear your copy arrived! Hope you enjoy it! thumbsup

How are the timed elements in Still Life 2? Are they very difficult? I have that game, but I haven't gotten to it yet. Still have so many games I need to get to. smile

Mad, that's the best way to be, I think. grin Did you also enjoy The Longest Journey?

Oh, I love Lucas Arts, too! Grim Fandango is one of my favorite games of all time. Still very interested in the Lucas Arts games I missed. yes

I always envy those who enjoy solitary first person as well as inventory based third person. Twice the adventure to enjoy. Of course, then it would be twice as expensive, too. lol

Hi Venus, Just saw your post and the timed parts of Still Life 2 aren't too bad until you get to the end. (Up to that point you can restart a saved game if you mess up.) I confess to using the WT a lot with this one and the last two are where things get kind of dicey. I think it is just me but I have been really weird about even trying to do this as if you don't make it there is only one more chance or the game ends in a bad way. So I have been stalling for about two weeks which is totally ridiculous. I need to just do it regardless the outcome and get on with Lost Horizon, lol!!! hardwall

I myself am in the middle of playing the game. I am enjoying the heck out of it. I love the "Movie" feel to it. Even my kids were watching me play and trying to guess at which crazy inventory items to use and mix. I have been laughing my rear off at the silly inventory uses and watching with anticipation the cutscenes. The scenery is beautiful and the dialogue fresh and spicy. I am taking my time clicking on things just to hear the comments. This one may become one of my favorites!! Oh and I also enjoyed the longest journey too. But , I love story driven games. Its just my own preference. I am waiting to order Dark Star as well. I love cheeesy sci-fi stuff. Should be fun to watch and play. Then again I will play almost any adventure game some good some not so good. I do like playing games I enjoy though. This ones a keeper and will probably replay it several times.


OK Correction , I finished the game and it is definitely going down as one of my favorites!! Loved everything about it. Will definitely play it again!!

Mad, I envy you and don't envy you at the same time. rotfl

Lotus, now I'm the late one who missed your post. lol Sorry about that! slapforehead Thanks for the Still Life 2 info. I'm probably going to play it through with a walkthrough just to see the story. I won it in a Gameboomers contest (which I was thrilled about, since my fiance had been wanting the game so badly thumbsup ), so I definitely intend to persevere with it at some point. I have a collection of games I have to get through, and it's among them. Fiance just likes to play games with me after I finish them anyway, so he doesn't have to solved the puzzles himself. lol The original Still Life is one of his favorites. Glad you enjoyed Lost Horizon so much anyway! thumbsup

Mgriffith, I also favor story driven games, which is why TLJ is one of my favorites. And Lost Horizon is way up there, too. Glad you enjoyed it so much. thumbsup
