Step aboard the 1914 Orient Express in this award-winning mystery adventure from Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner.

Described as one of the best adventure games of all time, The Last Express is an intrigue-filled adventure set aboard the luxurious Orient Express. In July 1914, on the eve of World War I, as the train departs on its final journey from Paris to Constantinople, the player steps into the shoes of Robert Cath, an American doctor with a mysterious past. A fugitive from French police, Cath boards the train in answer to an urgent telegram from his best friend – and plunges into a maelstrom of conspiracy, romance and murder.

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? =/

The Last Express es una aventura diferente, de autor, y esto se nota en todos sus aspectos.

Que esto sea bueno o malo depende del jugador pero tiene mucho merito la apuesta que hizo el juego en su dia por ofrecer una alternativa distinta a las clasicas aventuras de point and click que copaban el mercado.

Lamentablemente es un juego que no ha envejecido del todo bien. Es completamente jugable y disfrutable pero tiene un interface desastroso y un sistema de inventario y guardado algo confuso. Por otra parte lo que en su dia fue pura innovacion y un claro reclamo para las ventas, esa tecnica de cinematicas dibujadas sobre actores reales, chirria un poco hoy en dia.

El juego transcurre a bordo de un tren y toda la trama se va a desarollar en apenas cinco vagones, Si bien la premisa puede parece muy arriesgada el juego lo resuelve con solvencia gracias a la trama, los personajes y la mecanica de juego. Apenas tendremos inventario y apenas tendremos que interactuar con el entorno. La mecanica jugable de The Last Express es bien distinta. Aqui se trata de estar en el momento justo en el lugar justo para actuar en consecuencia y sobre todo hablar mucho con los personajes.

Una mecanica jugable que es el alma del juego. Aqui el enemigo final es el tiempo porque el tren esta vivo y los acontecimientos transcurren a tiempor real. Depende de donde estemos oiremos una conversacion, presenciaremos un suceso o podremos actuar si es necesario. Asi de simple...y asi de desquiciante. Desquiciante porque el juego nos pone muchas trampas que acaban con la muerte del protagonista y porque muchas veces no sabremos que hacer. Pero poco a poco, iremos relacionando sucesos a su debido tiempo para salir airosos.

Una trama exotica y unos personajes a la par estan mas que bien. En una Europa a punto de entrar en la Primera Guerra Mundial, el Orient Express es un crisol de nacionalidades e intereses politicos que el juego sabe explotar muy bien para presentarnos una aventura con tesoros, asesinatos, combates, agentes secretos y un final a la altura de una buena novela de espias.

Una pena que sea tan corta. Cuando mas empieza a divertir es cuando llega el final y uno se queda con ganas de mas.

Muy recomendable para completistas del genero de las aventuras, nostalgicos y amantes de lo exotico en general.


7/10.

This is a fantastic adventure game you can not miss, if you enjoy this genre of games you will love, The Last Express.

A murder of a friend in The Orient Express, combined with a thriller based on the preambules of WWI.
Many characters to discover ant interact, misteries to solve, in a brilliant gameplay, in wich every decision you choose, means for the succesfull of your journey.

This is a re-release of the lates 90s game, so do not expect a marvelous graphics, anyways the game is pretty damn beautiful and had a pretty good time playing it.

Price is ridicolous, an as i said, if you like this kind of games, you should buy it, you will not regret it.

Lo bueno: Personajes muy ricos e interesantes. El hecho de que estando en un lugar te puedas perder acontecimientos que ocurren en otro, y que cada partida se aleatoricen un poco.
Lo malo: No tienes ni idea, nunca, de lo que pasa, tus objetivos, tus posibilidades... La usabilidad de este juego es más pobre que la del primer Monkey Island, con una interfaz desastrosa y un reloj que no es fácil de comprender. Totalmente inabordable, deja al jugador desamparado sin saber qué hacer o qué está ocurriendo a su alrededor.

Conclusión: Por muy buena que (dicen) sea la historia, recomiendo verla en youtube. Me sentí abandonado desde el principio como jugador, y me hizo perder por completo el interés.
