The Last Express reviews and comments

Hardly an enjoyable game on any level. The game is lacking, often crashing, and it's hard to find even remotely entertaining. The controls are difficult, finding your way about the screen is confusing and the interaction is limited to the point where I just feel like I'm walking aimlessly around waiting for the game to show me what to do and move the story along. Now, I don't know what I could expect from a game run on an iPod touch, and I did expect something more along the lines of a Agatha Cristie murder mystery, so maybe it's not just the game that is wrong here. Even so, while they do get a few things right, and excluding the griefs already mentioned, this game is still boring as hell.

A classic from 1997, but the game could just as well be released yesterday. It is not a traditional adventure game, or a traditional game in general, but if you are open to the specific style and design of the game (everything takes place in real time, and freedom is total) you will be rewarded with one of the best gaming experiences Ever. The Story unfolds regardless of whether you are active or not and at each playthrough you can experience new facets. There are therefore several inferences, but of course only a "real". It works really fine on the iPhone, and you even get more help along the way than in the original. For The best experience, you should use headphones-you can, for example, Choose to listen to an entire classical concert (45 min.!!!) along the way on the trip if you like. It requires a little more patience than Angry Birds, but it's the whole trip worth it! Great game without any straight

Last Express is a unique game of its kind, and for once the unique adjective is entirely appropriate. The game interface based on real time is original, just think that the characters interact with each other regardless of the presence of our on the scene. The clock that allows you to go back when you run into a premature end can be frustrating at times, but once you have taken your hand, repeating or changing scenarios, you can grasp every nuance of the complex storyline of the adventure. The game was developed by an unusually full-bodied team coordinated by the ingenious Mechner, is well-cared for in every detail and, unfortunately, its engine was no longer exploited to give life to other similar titles. For me it should be placed in the top ten of the best graphic adventures of all time, this porting does not add anything to the original game of ' 97 but has the immense merit of making it available again to all lovers of the genre. And Despite the age does not disfigure, indeed, it confirms a masterpiece.
I first played and completed this in 2017, almost 20 years after it had been released, when I was looking through well rated games on GOG, immediately falling in love with the story of this exceptional, maybe one-of-a-kind adventure.

It is a first person adventure playing on a train on the historic Orient Express route from Paris to Constantinople. You are traveling on the train where a murder takes place to start the story. While the game runs, real time is running also and events take place at different places on the train at any given time. You have to solve the nature of the murder.

My time nowadays for games being very limited, I wasn't able to explore this game fully as you cannot possibly see what takes place on the train in one playthrough since you can only be in one place at a time. I saw a new Gold Edition was released which might be incentive enough to play it once again.

Engaging story. Recommend it to anyone who likes the charm of these long gone times.
