Paleontologists and scientists alike have researched the existence of the dinosaurs. From time to time, it has been theorized and speculated about what would have happened if man and dinosaur had co-existed on the earth. Lost Eden, an ambitious title from Cryo Interactive, sets out to put this question to rest and to theorize on why the dinosaurs disappeared.

It is an age of unrest and the alliance between humans and dinosaurs is weakening due to an evil dinosaur that is set on ruling the earth. Adam of Mo, a human, meets with his father and finds out that he has the rare ability to unite the humans and dinosaurs. Adam, along with two dinosaur friends, is sent on a mission to protect the human/dinosaur alliance.

Lost Eden is beautifully designed and the cutscenes and 3-D polygonal graphics were way ahead of their time. On the other hand, the game suffers from the typical Cryo pitfalls [Underdogs' note: "typical" for Cryo's games made after 1994 - for examples of how good their games used to be, check out Dune and KGB on this site]. While great graphics and a beautiful trance-style soundtrack do abound, the game is overcome with repetitive puzzles, repetitive dialogue, and horrific voiceovers. The game is fairly short and is easy to complete within a few hours, making it a great title for amateur adventure fans.

On a good note, the game still holds up and has more than just a "curio" appeal. If you are open minded and don't mind a bit of easy adventuring, or are just looking for something a bit different from the norm, give this unique and stylish adventure a try.
