Last Express, The box cover

Last Express, The screenshot
One of the most original and atmospheric adventures ever released, The Last Express is a masterpiece that exemplifies what storytelling should be. You are Robert Cath, who boards the train in Paris to meet a friend only to find him dead. The list of innovations in the game is endless: from the surprisingly effective comic-book-meets-art-nouveau graphics style, exciting real-time gameplay, and gripping story, you'll be playing and re-playing this game for days to come. The lack of challenging puzzles and some frustrating combat didn't prevent it from being a true classic. If you love adventure games, you owe it to yourself to try this incredibly innovative and absorbing game - one that will compel you to replay more than once as you follow optional paths and try to unravel the mystery. A must-have.
