Ich fand das Spielkonzept doch sehr nett und die Story hat was, das muss man sagen. Die Animation ist ein Stück für sich, denn sowas habe ich noch nie gesehen, obwohl es doch recht verpixelt aussieht. Die Errungenschaften haben einen angespornt ect... was mich aber doch tatasächlich dazu brachte, das Spiel nicht zu empfehlen war, dass es OHNE GRUND abstürzte. Ich habe heute zwei Abstürze in ca. 10(?) Minuten bekommen und das kann wirklich nicht sein. Wenn ein Spiel so oft abstürtzt wie bei mir, dann kann es wahrhaftig den Spielspaß bremsen, daher habe ich mich auch entschieden das Spiel nicht mehr zu spielen, denn wozu spielen, wenn es eh abstürtzt? Oftmals passierte es genau an Stellen wo ich mir dachte:"MAN, da war ich doch gerade so WEIT!" Nichts desto trotz, werde ich schnell eine Pro u. Contra Liste erstellen, wie immer. :)
Es kann sein, dass das Spiel so 'alt' ist, dass es gerne Abstürze macht, aber sein wir mal ehrlich, selbst die Tomb Raider Reihen haben sowas niemals getan! Und die kamen auch in diesen Jahren raus, also da kann niemand mir weiß machen, dass das Spiel doch nicht bugfrei sein soll...

PRO
- Interessante Story, hätte gerne mehr gesehen....
- Gameplay ist halt ein Klick and Point Game, aber es sah doch relativ schick aus ^^

CONTRA
---- ABSTÜRZE! Bremst enorm den Spielspaß!

PS: Ich sollte sagen, dass mein Pc wirklich sehr gute Eigenschaften hat, also kann es wirklich nicht an mir liegen.

The Last Express ist trotz seines Alters ein sehr gelungenes Adventure. Die Story ist sehr interessant und wer gerne Hitchcock guckt wie ich kommt voll auf seine Kosten. Trotz der sehr veralteten Technik,fühlt man sich doch irgendwie in die Zeit zurückversetzt,da der Grafikstil bzw allgemein die Gestaltung des Zuges sehr altmodisch und gut gelungen ist.
Wer gerne Adventures spielt,kaufen,und lasst euch nicht von der Technik abschrecken :)

Released in 1997 during the final stages of the golden age of point-and-click adventures, the game was eventually a commercial failure and out of print nearly a year later. It was extremely expensive to make at the time, and a lot of effort was made to make it as historically authentic and convincing as possible. They even found an old abandoned Orient Express stowed away for 50+ years on a rail yard somewhere in Athens giving them first hand sources to make the legendary train come to life.

The game itself in a nutshell is a murder mystery. You have received a telegram from your friend Tyler Whitney to meet him on the train to take a journey from Paris to Jerusalem, as he has found something that might interest him there. Unfortunately the protagonist misses the train thanks to unforeseen circumstances with the law, and the only thing Tyler is greeted with is patrolling police on the lookout. Still that doesn’t stop the protagonist from boarding the train thanks to a friend and her motorcycle. On board you are free to explore the train, but your first task is to reunite with your friend whom should be waiting in his compartment. As you open the door you are met his mutilated and clawed up body. Determined to find out what happened you hide his body, take his identity ready to seek out and find the killer of your friend.

What makes this game so unique and not like anything you have ever previously played is how the whole game is played in real time. The clock is always ticking on the Orient Express and you have both passengers and crew going about their own things no matter if you’re there to catch them in the act or not. By making it this way you never feel like the game is tailor made for you. Just sitting in the smoking car eavesdropping as the passengers babble on might give you important information or clues to your case or impertinent discussions about anything 1914 related topics or just ordinary daily life stuff - which is still very interesting mind you thanks to some of the most realistic and deepest characters I’ve ever seen in a video game. Never have I played a game with this level of historical authenticity, you are immediately immersed in this game and convinced that you are a passenger on the Orient Express on the eve of World War 1.

Being in real time you will obviously miss tons clues, discussions, dialogue and events the first times playing it. Every time I come back to this game I always find new and undiscovered information. You are of course still able to rewind or fast forward the game at your leisure if you feel like experimenting with different routes. The game features a bunch of endings and only the most determined will make it all the way to Constantinople and find out the truth about the fate of his friend.

I highly recommend this game for any fans of point-and-click adventures who wants to try something different. It contains a compelling story, excellent characters and great voice acting who all speaks in their natural language; may it be Russian, English, German, Serbian, Arabian or French. The graphics are cartoony, but very stylish – I think it fits great for this game. All the characters are based off real actors who were mo-capped into the game so it still contains a very realistic look despite having cartoony colours.

A fantastic adventure from Paris to Constantinopolis. A unique gameplay where every action count. Robert Cath's story on the Orient Express can stop at every station. You will need to play it a few times if you want to know every detail about Tyler Whitney's plans and past. I never finished the game like it should when i was a kid so i'm really glad they made this Gold Edition.

There's really nothing to dislike about this little gem. All i'm hoping is that Jordan Mechner will make a sequel/prequel so Smoking Car Productions rises back from their aches like a firebird and make us a real adventure game. Not some mash button party.

It's such a unique game. There's no reason not to buy it!

What starts out as a murder mystery takes a sharp turn into a twisting tale of espionage, political intrigue, and danger in The Last Express, a mixture of Indiana Jones type adventure and Alfred Hitchcock storytelling in pre-war Europe. You are Robert Cath, a doctor-turned fugitive about to meet his old friend Tyler Whitney onboard the Orient Express. Upon opening your shared compartment, however, you find your friend has been murdered in a rather bloody fashion. To continue on the story of the game would spoil its magic. The Last Express features intuitive gameplay that is composed of mostly walking around the train, piecing together the lives of the people living on it. Your choices heavily impact the game, which is something that many games even today lack. You meet a prince, a Russian revolutionary, a German who appears to know you, and more witty and well written characters. There's no adventure game quite like it, especially now, and it's just damn good. Damn good.
