En tung anbefaling her altså til alle de som setter pris på eventyrspill. Cryo Interactive visste åpenbart hva de holdt på med og Virgin Interactive gjorde rett i å vise interesse for denne alternative historien om dinosaurer og mennesker som er lett å like og bli oppslukt av. Vi sender med vår «Golden DOS Spirit»-utmerkelse som hjelp i gjenoppbyggingen av «The Lost Eden».

Det är en oerhörd känsla att glida fram över landskapet på ryggen av en pterodaktyl och bara njuta av att delta i handlingen.

Si vous débutez et cherchez un jeu pas trop complexe qui vous en mette plein la vue, foncez, vous ne le regretterez pas. En revanche, si, l'expérience aidant, un jeu est avant tout un défi à relever en un temps record, attendez-vous à faire le tour de ce paradis en un petit week-end.

Although Lost Eden has wonderful animations, remarkable graphics and an out of this world soundtrack, it fails to keep your interest high throughout the game, except for when you discover new animations.

With its gorgeous graphics and original story, Lost Eden secures Cryo's reputation as top adventure designers.

Für mich ist Lost Eden einer der Kaufgründe für ein CD-I und kann es dementsprechend jedem nur ans Herz legen, der sich für Adventures begeistern kann. Lost Eden muß sich dabei hinter großen Namen wie 7th Guest wirklich nicht verstecken - die tolle Story und der großartige Soundtrack werden euch so einige Stunden unterhalten!

Les joueurs confirmés reprocheront à ce titre sa facilité, mais pour les débutants ou les jeunes utilisateurs, quel plaisir !

Overall, this is a fun and entertaining game that is not overly long. Not as well-known as some of Cryo's later games, it is certainly different and amusing and worth picking up if you see an inexpensive copy available.

Multimediapelien tapaan Lost Eden ei ole järin avartava. Seikkailu etenee melkoisen vaivattomasti viemällä esineitä oikeisiin paikkoihin, ja syvällistä vuorovaikutusta pelimaailmaan on turha etsiä. Adamin seuralaiset ovat niin avuliaita, että omat aivot voi vaihtaa välillä vapaalle. Lost Edenia voisikin luonnehtia koko perheen seikkailuksi. Ei turhan vaativa, mutta tarpeeksi viihdyttävä.

A highly enjoyable adventure game with a surprisingly easy-to-learn interface. The cinemas that follow every important action are interesting and fit well into the story line, while the relaxing background music lest you unwind as you adventure in the mystical world and attempt to make the dinosaurs and humans co-exist in harmony. Lost Eden may appear to be a bad B-movie at first glance, but it is challenging and enjoyable all the way through.

Ein originelles, grafisch hervorragendes Abenteuerspiel. Die Puzzles sind etwas zu einfach, der Spielverlauf viel zu geradlinig. Allerdings fesselten mich die gerenderten Grafiken so an den Bildschirm, daß ich das Spiel am Stück durchspielen mußte - auch wenn es nur vier Stunden waren, es war beste Unterhaltung.

Myst fans who love the puzzle elements of point-and-click text adventures will really dig these dinosaurs, but be prepared for some lengthy discourses to keep you occupied. Although Lost Eden takes a bite from the RPG apple, it probably shouldn't talk with it's mouth full.

Lost Eden features three things that make an adventure great: a good story, beautiful graphics and a sweeping soundtrack. Add an easy interface and a bunch of nasty-looking ogres and dinosaurs and what you've got is an adventure game that's a cut above the rest. This game will pull you in and keep you playing for hours.

הגרפיקה מאוד מרשימה, המוסיקה כאמור מעולה (מזכירה קצת את החומר של "אניגמה") ומי שאוהב את הסגנון הזה אולי יהנה, אבל אישית הרגשתי קצת מרומה.

All in all, the game is not too difficult, but if you do get stuck there is a magic shell that allows you to communicate with a deceased old wise man and he will let you know what you should generally be doing. The game itself is fairly straightforward and, although you can change the order in which you do things, be warned, you do run the risk of someone important vanishing before you get to them. I found no sub-quests and most things could be solved in one, and only one, way. Compared with Dragon Lore, it is a little disappointing because of this lack of complexity.

The game does have some problems. For one thing, it has only three game save slots--sacrilege! Also, the gameplay does allow you to get into some dead ends, which I'm never fond of. After making a couple of mistakes, I had to go back to a saved game from much earlier in the story to be able to successfully complete my missions. However, this is a charming, offbeat little game that I recommend you get your hands on if you can.

Noch ist Eden nicht verloren - wohl aber die Zeit, die ich mit diesem zum Aussterben verurteilten Such-den-Saurier-Langweiler vertrödelt habe. Für Styling-verliebte Einsteiger, die jeder geistigen Anstrengung aus dem Weg gehen wollen, mag's vielleicht erträglich sein.

Das Gefährliche an „Lost Eden“ ist der anfängliche Reiz, der sich jedoch schnell verflüchtigt, wenn man das postfuturistische Adventure bis über das erste Drittel hinaus spielt. Dann erst machen sich grobe Schnitzer in Präsentation, Story und Spieldesign bemerkbar, die den anfänglich guten Eindruck in einem Morast aus Enttäuschung und purer Langeweile versinken lassen: Digitalisierte und wieder verfremdete Menschenwesen fügen sich dann nur ungern in die gezeichneten Personengruppen und Hintergründe ein. An angeblich verschiedenen Orten, die jedoch allesamt gleich aussehen, ergehen sich Story und Rätsel in unablässig wiederholenden Puzzlezeremonien. Lediglich die gut gelungenen (und werbewirksamen!) Zwischensequenzen, die größtenteils solide Technik und der mitunter sehr atmosphärische CD-Soundtrack retten „Lost Eden“ ins untere Mittelmaß.

I like to think of myself as a very experienced gamer, but to finish this game in four hours without getting stumped once? Let me just say this, if you are a beginner to the adventure game genre, Lost Eden is an excellent "foot wetting" game. But for all of you other experienced gamers out there, save your cash for a more challenging quest, 'lest your funds become extinct!
