The Last Express
The Last Express

You play the role of Robert Cath, a fugitive American with a mysterious background, who is on the final journey of the Orient Express from Paris to Constantinople before World War I. Cath, already wanted by the French Police as a suspect of the murder of an Irish police officer, is contacted by an old friend Tyler Whitney through an urgent message in a letter to join him on the Orient Express. The said letter states that there is a possible exit from all of his troubles. Cath boards the train via a motorcycle while it was traveling from one station to another. As soon as Cath boars the luxurious train, he finds Whitney dead, killed by someone else on board the train. To blend in, he disposes of Whitney's body and takes his place, becoming involved in a web of treachery, lies, political conspiracies, personal interests, romance and murder.

Originally released in 1997, The Last Express was considered by game reviewers at the time to be one of the best point-and-click adventure games ever produced, though it was ultimately something of a commercial disappointment.
