Last Stop Reviews
Last Stop tells three interesting stories, but lacks enough meaningful choices or consequences to create investment in its drama.
A smart, funny, heartfelt narrative game that tells a killer story, but doesn't do much beyond that.
A twisting and engaging portmanteau tale of the unexplained, set in a London that's refreshing in its finely observed normality.
Last Stop blends classic British humor, the contrast of human mundanity, and the chaotic nature of the supernatural flawlessly
I had a great time playing The Last Stop. While I don't think the end of the story comes together as well as I would have wanted it to, I would still recommend playing it. If you've liked Telltale's brand of narrative adventure games in the past then I am sure you would really like this. I was instantly hooked, and I can't wait to see what Variable State make next.
Last Stop feels like a glorified interactive cutscene, though a cutscene I was eager to continue watching. It's just unfortunate that the gameplay comes across as an interruption rather than anything that lifts the experience.
With three heartfelt stories about the meaning of the relationships framed in A Twilight Zone atmosphere, Last Stop is an ambitious interactive comedy-drama which succeeds to deliver its message, even if sometimes at the expense of gameplay experience.

Last Stop does a decent job of hooking you into its story, but the ending lets it down. The journey of characters is more enjoyable than where it ends up.
Burroughs and Holland do hit on a fine idea: that, if we could peer into the other lives sharing the pavement, like idle channel surfers, we would surely register a jarring shift of genres.
Last Stop was unlike any narrative driven game I've played. The stories were all unique, with fully fleshed out characters, great dialogue and voice acting, and a highly entertaining, if ultimately a bit of a letdown, story that finds satisfying ways to intertwine all three characters. Fans of Telltale's game series will find a lot to love in this mature narrative centering on life, love, loss, betrayal, and redemption.
Last Stop takes a lot of risks, and for the most part, it succeeds. It's a game about interconnectivity in a modern world, but a few flaws keep it from rising to the heights it wants to.
Variable State surprisingly managed to create a really unique and vibrant world in Last Stop.

Variable State follows up the wordless weirdness of Virginia with a far more talkative, and more grounded, supernatural drama with Last Stop. The focus on its three protagonists' everyday problems over the underlying odd phenomena helps to make each tale more engaging, and in turn, makes the stranger things that occur feel more captivatingly mysterious in their initially limited use. It's a little light in terms of traditional player control, but Last Stop tells a hell of a good story that you still very much feel like you're in the director's chair for.
Last Stop’s anthology-based approach to storytelling is great and helps to keep you engaged throughout. Even though your choices don’t really impact the story, it’s a lovely journey that touches on some interesting themes. Unfortunately, the conclusion is disappointing as it delves a little too far into the realm of science fiction. Regardless of this, the grounded characters and interesting cast are worth meeting.
Last Stop is all about the story, making its three storylines the centrepiece of the experience. Characters introduced by them quickly become staples as their personalities and unfortunate predicaments take hold, all the while the overall plot takes shape and builds to a crescendo. It's disappointing that the vast majority of your decisions have little to no impact, but the ride Last Stop takes you on is worthwhile regardless.
Neither lengthy nor particularly interactive, Last Stop succeeds on the strengths of its writing, narrative, and characters.
Last Stop has something special in there to share over its six-or-so hours. Well worth having on the wishlist until the time and price are right for you.
It's an unmissable work if you like graphic adventures and good series. Its bizarre plot in the purest X-Files style and its characters will take you on a nice journey to the denouement of this story full of green light.

Last Stop should best be reckonned as a strictly narrative game, as its interactive scope is way too clumsy : full linearity, no impacting choices and bland QTE sequences. The variety of atmospheres (comedy, drama, mysteries) makes it intersting to play though, and the game is carried by a nice and fitting soundtrack.
