Customer Reviews


Haven't finished yet, but love it! I'm so happy an iPad port was created, might never have experienced this masterpiece otherwise. Insightful exploration of political tensions just pre-WWI. I have become obsessed with listening to the wonderful voice acting in every conversation I come across. I'm Serbian and speak French, so love the range of languages used, truly an immersive experience, I search for games like this daily! Amazing achievement, especially for a game from so long ago. Don't let the slightly clunky controls and simple animation put you off, these small issues fade to the background within 10 minutes of gameplay.

Epic game

This game is huge, I nearly ran out of space installing it but it is worth it.

Still unique after all these years and will remain a classic. This is like an interactive movie, you will love it if you enjoy a good story with interesting characters.

Don't expect too much action or fast pace gameplay, this game is all about relaxing on a couch and immersing in a historic journey of adventure.

This is missing a crucial feature

This a word of advice to the developers. If you're strapped for cash and want to make a quick buck, here's a hot tip. Add subtitles to the game. I've been warned by friends who are either deaf or hearing impaired to not download The Last Express, as it is impossible to play without knowing what the characters are saying.

It's a shame because this looks exactly like the kind of game I love. If this ever gets re-released with subtitles, you can bet that I and all of my deaf friends will come RUNNING.
