Let's get something out of the way: this is an amazing game, a delight for experienced adventure game players with an awesome, complex and rich story.

HOWEVER.

On this "gold" edition they completely ♥♥♥♥ed up the interface and they tried to dumb it down to a level that makes me twitch. Unsuccessfully - this will never ever be a game for casual gamers or the "hey I feel like trying a point & click game" kinda guy, no matter how much they destroy the game's atmosphere with their stupid tutorials, pop ups and help icons.

In summary:

I 100% RECOMMEND THIS EPIC AWESOME ONE-OF-A-KIND GAME. Plus 1%.

I 0% RECOMMEND THIS RIDICULOUS GOLD EDITION. Don't support their views that they can make more money by ruining something that was never broken in the first place. You don't need the stupid achievements, you need to experience this amazing gaming and cinematic experience the way it was meant to be experienced!

You will fall in love with it.

Just a series of short opinions that aspire to be reviews with the noble goals of examining every more or less "adventurous" game on steam and keeping my engrish a little less "r".


A game that feels "fresh" even almost 20 years later thanks to the real-time mechanics and an evocative story about the society on a brink of World War I. The setting is brilliantly detailed and Cath's misadventures are interesting enough to follow even if you (like me) won't care much for the erratic love story or will have troubles accepting a pretty absurd conclusion to the main murder mystery. Everything is more about that stunning atmosphere than an actual story. I'd like to specifically point out an amazing work with the voice acting, when despite a game's crazy language diversity, every actor is a native speaker. It adds a lot to the overall experience.

With the release of this "Gold Edition" and its hint system The Last Express can now actually be enjoyed even by those who are not prone to hours of aimless wondering. TLE is closer to the modern walk-and-talk approach and doesn't feature any obscure puzzles, but the problem is that an original game gave you little to no direction, betting almost everything on the timely and lucky eavesdropping. So you may just walk in circles for a while, not realising that you've missed a key event and need to rewind the time. Some may argue that it was a part of the special charm and added to the immersion, but it clearly averted quite a few less hardcore lurkers from the experience. Still while I wholly support the inclusion of the hint system itself, in the reality it has been added in a rather... ugly way, seriously damaging game's aesthetics. Sometimes it almost feels like you are playing some sketchy shareware hidden object game.

The Last Express deserves to be played even if only as an example of probably the most ambitious adventure game of the late 90-s. Especially since now it's a lot more accessible to the not so dedicated gamers. Just live through the tasteless design decisions that followed.

3.5/5

PS: I really wonder what would happen in the end if I didn't find that random beetle. Would the intended finale simply become unattainable? Would I never be able to hunt people with my glorious жар-птица? =/

모든게 실시간으로 흘러가는 최초의 어드벤쳐게임.
영화에는 "닉 오브 타임"이 있다면 게임에는 "라스트 익스프레스"가 있다.
당시에는 꽤나 획기적이었고, 각종 리뷰의 찬사에도 불구하고 제작사와 유통사가 망해버린 탓인지 별로 팔리지 않은 비운의 명작.

기차 안에는 여러나라 승객들이 탑승해있는데
기본적으로 자막이 없는데다가 주인공이 알아듣는 외국어만 자막이 나와서 원어민이 아닌이상 앞으로 어떻게 행동해야하는지 어떻게 이야기가 흘러가고 있는지 이해하기가 힘들 듯하다.

대신 골드판에는 힌트가 포함되어서 막히더라도 힌트를 누르면 어떻게 행동해야하는지 상세하게 알려준다.

몇가지 단점은

스토리가 잘 나가다가 후반부에 뜸금없이 삼천포로 빠진다.

몇몇 등장인물도 동해번쩍 서해번쩍한다.
분명히 중간역에서 내려서 마차타고 떠났는데 후반부에 뜬금없이 나타나서 주인공을 방해한다.

등장인물의 이동시나 전투시에는 움직임이 초당 약 30프레임으로 부드럽게 흘러가지만
이벤트 영상 때는 초당 1~2프레임정도로 흘러가서 답답한 느낌이 있다.

골드판의 문제인지는 모르겠지만 이동시 한칸 이동했음에도 불구하고 더블클릭한 것처럼 계속 이동하는 버그가 있다. 특히 시간이 촉박한 시기 때는 환장할 노릇.

해당위치 클릭에 따라 전진, 후진, 좌, 우, 제자리회전을 하는 방식이라
잘 전진하다가도 화물칸같은 꺽어진복도 같은 곳이 나오면 제자리 회전하는 경우도 있다.
덕분에 가끔씩 방향을 잃기도...

도움말이나 현재 위치를 알려주는 자막이 뜰 때 폰트가독성이 너무나 떨어진다.

이거만 제외하면 괜찮은 게임.

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.

The Last Express is a classic adventure game with a riveting story and brilliant atmosphere, it is perhaps my favourite story told in a mystery adventure rivalled only by some of the LucasArts classics.

I've played through this game multiple times over the last decade and I always enjoy the experience, it's like watching an excellent mystery movie, with interesting narrative and likeable characters and conversations which stick with you even after the game concludes.

However.

DotEmu has sacrificed what made this game a 'must have' in any collection, marred the game play with tool tips and icons which ruin the atmosphere of the game.

Sure, it plays in a higher resolution, and has compatibility with newer operating systems, but in the process DotEmu seem to have removed sound effect files such as the bustling wind from the carriage windows when they're opened.

I know it seems silly to nitpick on such minor details, but these minor nuances are what made me fall in love with this game.

Back on the subject of tool tips, the achievement icons that pop up in the middle of the screen when cinematic are playing.
And these can't be turned off. Not at all.
There is no option to turn off achievement or character bio/unlock popups, and they linger on-screen for up to 10 seconds.

The inclusion of (but to merit the ability to disable) tutorials is an insult to this game. Sorry you had to take the time to write them into the game, sadly they don't scream "GOLD EDITION" when the original title was a test of wits and observation skills, rather than telling you that the person you needed to talk to was currently having breakfast and you should annoy them.

I wouldn't recommend this VERSION of The Last Express solely that there are better, unadulterated versions available from other distributors, and simply put the term GOLD EDITION only exists because of a unlockables screen, which ultimately ruins the experience.

If the above could be toggled on/off or even removed, or even a purist setting, which disables on-screen prompts and hints, I would instantly regard this as the best version of the game available.
