Last Stop Reviews
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.
Variable State surprisingly managed to create a really unique and vibrant world in Last Stop.

Annapurna Interactive has quickly become one of my favourite publishers with the wide variety of inventive titles on offer. So when Annapurna’s latest title promised a mystery narrative title set in present-day London, I was eager to uncover the secrets of Last Stop.
This game is a little gem with a lot of charm.
Even among fans of dialogue-driven adventure titles, I couldn’t possibly recommend Last Stop.
Last Stop is three interesting stories tied to an entirely pointless set of gameplay. The narrative drives the game and holds your interest, while the gameplay veers between pointless and distracting. Overall, it is an enjoyable romp for anyone who's fond of narrative-driven games. It's hard to escape the sense that I would've enjoyed an animated movie or television show more, but Last Stop is a satisfying, if not very interactive, story.
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 serves up a strong narrative, mixing existentialism with the lives of ordinary people, but it forgets to be a game at some points. The interaction and story bits keep you invested at the cost of choices and navigation segments that do nothing for the adventure. At its best, Last Stop should be enjoyed as a casual narrative-focused experience, but asking anything more of it may have you exiting before the end of the line.
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 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 is an engaging piece of entertainment, but not really an entertaining game to play. The fun of the narrative can't overcome the lackluster gameplay and nonexistent player choice.
Last Stop is a very fun indie that allows us to enjoy three completely different stories, showing us the harsh reality of everyday life with three characters who have a lot of personality and who will end up meeting in the last chapter.

Last Stop goes to great lengths to build a story that mixes fantasy and absurdity with everyday family dramas. Even though it succeeds in its central objective, the title fails as a game, it offers very little to those who are following the fate of the characters on screen. With uninteresting minigames and few ramifications in the narrative from the choices we make for the characters, the game frustrates more than enchants.

Last Stop tells a weak story where your choices doesn't really matter, with minimal and guided interactions.

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.

Variable State's sophomore effort reaches a boring destination due to uneven writing and game design austerity.
Last Stop is more like a drama than a game. Choices have little influence at game play, but its story is no less interesting than other dramas. However, 'Last Stop' is a game, not a drama. It would be better if it held narratives putting more characteristics of games.

Last Stop has an engaging plot, a wonderful cast of characters, and some excellent presentation. The game sadly doesn’t do much when it comes to the gameplay, and player choices. It has an intriguing narrative that you will surely want to see through, but not because of any mechanical depth offered as a game. Recommended for fans of the genre, hoping to enjoy a great story without much when it comes to gameplay.
A twisting and engaging portmanteau tale of the unexplained, set in a London that's refreshing in its finely observed normality.
