Welcome to The Final Station; a game built upon an interesting take on the apocalypse, and it all happens on a train that you must maintain to keep operational. It’s not an entirely complicated game as far as the gameplay mechanics go, but the story is what’s important here, but it doesn't necessarily leave the best taste in your mouth.

The Final Station has a nice look to it and the generous checkpoints mean you will worry more about supplies than a surprise death. It’s a bit short, clocking in at about five hours, but worth a look.

Can you save humanity from a post apocalyptic world by using..... a train?

This game is so minimalist, yet so full of dark, foreboding atmosphere that I spent the whole time hunched over, tensed up as I made my way through this science fiction horror.

The Final Station is a decent train simulator with just enough craze to it that makes this title completely unique.

"There are some that would say there is nothing more soothing than riding the rails. You set off on a train and explore the countryside and relax, letting the world pass you by. If leisurely pursuits are your goal, then The Final Station from two man studio, Do My Best, and publisher tinyBuild may not be for you. If you're looking for an intense, 5-6 hour experience, then all aboard! The infected are coming."

I wish I had more nice things to say about The Final Station. It’s not a particularly great horror game, its story is initially interesting but ultimately disappointing, the exploration is nearly 100% linear, the combat is bare bones, and the train sequences are painful.

The Final Station may be an exhilarating and atmospheric ride, but it's repetitive structure and shallow gameplay screeches it to a halt.
