A great variation on the classic game Oregon Trail. Instead of heading west to start new cities and find Fame/Fortune, you are trying to escape the Zombie apocalypse and reach Safe Haven.

The game is about resource management and does a great job of staying true to the original, with fun variations. You travel with 4 friends in a crappy station wagon. Your car can be upgraded and repaired with spare parts when it breaks down. You can scavenge for food while avoiding and shooting zombies. And ofcourse Random things happen while on the Road, some bad and some funny.

Overall a fun game.

Very fun twist on the classic game. Thought it might be boring at first, but has more story than I expected, and plenty of easter eggs/collectibles/achievements. Even better to name the characters after people you know in real life.

9/10

I spent many an hour in my elementary school computer lab playing Oregon Trail, we always felt like our class had won the lottery because we got to play video games in school! I know it was supposed to be secretly educational, but looking back I learned nothing of any value playing it. Regardless, I loved every minute of it.

I picked up Organ Trail for something like 27 cents (I don’t remember the exact amount but it was low enough that I could recoup the loss by picking up change in a parking lot) and when all was said and done I got exactly what I expected of it: a silly, over the top interpretation of the classic Oregon Trail formula. I bought supplies, hunted zombies instead of the buffalo/duck hunt mini game, repaired my station wagon as opposed to an ox drawn wagon, and had everyone in my party die of the same disease as my settlers did all those years ago.

If you’re looking for a quick, silly re-imagining of Oregon Trail you would not regret picking Organ Trail up in a sale.

If you loved the DOS Oregon Trail that was out about 26 years ago and crave the nostalga, then this is for you. The ending is anti-climatic, but I find myself playing it over and over anyway, loving all the extra goodies you can unlock and have fun with. A helpful tip would be to scavenge often in low danger zones, it gives you stuff to trade ad buy supplies later. Worth every penny.

There is no f*cking around with this game, you got to really buckle down and get your $#it in order. It is ruthless. If on easy mode, the average length you would go is to maybe just past halfway, depends on how the game is feeling that day. It is very unpredictable, and your whole crew can die in a fraction of a second. If you hit a bump when someone is ill, then it's the end of the world, zeus rains bolts of lighting, the sky falls, it is over for that person. On the contrary, the game, is fun, but challenging as holding in fart when you need to cough.

Named the crew after people i know in real life and... I shot Kaycee right away cause i dont like him. Killed Kyle because he broke his leg and i got mad. Mason was using to many of my medkits so i shot him. Only me and my BFF Kincaid made it to the end.

I really enjoyed my time with Organ Trail: Director's Cut. It's like Oregon Trail (I have fond memories of playing this in computer class when I was in grade school in the early to mid '90s), and the game even has a very retro feel. Instead of the new frontier theme of Oregon Trail you'll be treated to a dark and somber Zombie theme... although the game is littered with some light humor. It'll take some wits, skill, and luck to get across the US. Overall I thought the game was a lot of fun, and it's a game I know I'll come back to every so often. I even have it on my tablet and played through it (it takes roughly 2 1/2 hrs to clear... if you can make it) in the hospital while I was waiting for my daughter to arrive. I think a lot of people would like Organ Trail, and I especially recommend it to the people that have fond memories of playing the original Oregon Trail.

Really a good game. The shooting is kinda hard to do, but the concept is original. There are many random encounters and you will have to make lots of important decisions. Overall, the best 5$ I have spent on a game. Get it scrubs!

I somehow missed this game when it was released (which is kind of strange). I just played it for a couple of hours, and it's a really good game. Will play it alot more.

I wish there was a modern remake of this one, would love to try it out.

If you are a fan of the original Oregan Trail game back in the day this is a must buy for you! Instead of traveling as a pilgram ventruing in the vast West to calm your fortunes, you are instead trying to get there while survining a zombie apocalypse.

К своему стыду я не играл в оригинальную игру, родителя Organ Trail, хотя и подозревал, что это название ведет своими корнями в эпоху четырехцветных старых игр. Как выяснилось, предком был Oregon Trail, первые два релиза которого, состоялись еще до моего рождения в 1971 и 1974 годах. «Седобородость» этой игры не должна вас пугать, ибо игровая механика очень проста и как это нынче модно говорить - аддитивна.

Геймплей очень прост. Зомби-апокалипсис. Вы бежите, куда глаза глядят (точнее едете на старой развалюхе) и просто стараетесь выжить. Попутно заезжая в города и селения, выполняя работу, если таковая имеется, торгуя на рынке, или останавливаясь на привалы чтобы перекусить. Быть может починить машину, подлечиться или порыскать в поисках каких-либо припасов вокруг. Вот собственно и всё. «Всё» - помноженное на случайные встречи, происшествия, досадные оплошности и спасительные находки.

В самой игре вы можете взять себе четырех спутников, и дать им имена. Мои спутники – это мои друзья. Тем тяжелее слышать, что программист целый час тошнился в кустах, единственного и неповторимого друга уволок в лес грабитель (и мне повезло, что я, кинувшись за ним, не промазал, когда его спасал), а жена единственного и неповторимого сломала ногу, отравилась печеньем и случайно выбросила в окно две аптечки.

Если вы при слове «уволок», «выбросила», «бросился» живо представили аркаду или шутер – забудьте. Стрелять вы, конечно, будете. И довольно часто. Но делать это будете в стиле старых аркад того времени. Случайные события на дороге - это строчки текста, досадные оплошности – те же строчки текста выдаваемые на пути из Ада.

Я очень рад, что индустрия двинулась отдельными своими членами в правильном направлении, ставя во главе угла, в первую очередь, игровой процесс. Быть может в скором времени мы увидим еще несколько хороших классических игр вернувшихся к нам с того света. Рекомендую всячески.

С этого обзора я бы хотел ввести маленькое новшество. Субъективную оценку от нуля до ста баллов. Так как бинарное «рекомендовать» или «не рекомендовать» меня мало устраивает. Его довольно сложно ставить в отношении больших игр, но мое мнение оценку 100 баллов может иметь как Bioshock так и Digger. Ведь важны не бюджеты, длинна игры или графика, но в первую очередь удовольствие от игры, ее глубина и геймплей.

Примечание задним числом: Поиграв в Organ Trail вы, возможно, ощутите, как обостряется ваша фантазия и дорисовывает события, сопровождаемые скупым текстом. Игрушка скоротает вам немало времени, особенно в дороге. Играть в «дорогу» в дороге, довольно таки забавно.
