I also "need" to buy Last Express. You people keep going on about how great it is and I want to jump on the bandwagon.

Excellent!

If you can buy from America, there are sources here (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004C8S2/qid=1034977196/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/002-0894561-6084822?v=glance&s=videogames&n=507846) and here (http://www.chipsbits.com/cgi-bin/order.cbi_home?&source=84191&page=&newpage=infopages/LASTE.IR.html).

Incidentally I found a scanned in Last Express ad, which can be seen here (http://www.mobygames.com/game/covers/gameId,1172/gameCoverId,2767/) and here (http://www.mobygames.com/game/covers/gameId,1172/gameCoverId,2768/).

In fact, take a look at all those (http://www.mobygames.com/game/covers/gameId,1172/) box arts.

Thanks! Now I can see if this really is the best game ever. Let's look at my new list for non LEC games.

Last Express
Discworld sieries
Myst sieries
Broken Sword sieries
Little Big Adventure sieries.
Any places to buy?

For Myst go to your local EB and you can find a 3 pack with all 3 games for 30 bucks.

I also recomend Syberia, its the only game the Adventure Company has ever released thats any good at all. If you like Longest Journy go get it. Its new so check your local Game shop, its only 30 bucks.

I only played Discworld I and Discworld II.

Is Discworld Noir any good?

Discworld Noir is by far superior to the other two. It's like a longer Discworld II as opposed to the illogical things in I although there are so VERY tricky puzzles in there.

Yeah, it's an AMAZING game. One of the best games ever, and fully worth ever penny (or Euro, for that matter).

Still not as good as Last Express, though. But that's just my opinion. Oh, and Broken Sword I is a very good game. And Simon The Sorcerer 1. Get them now!!!!11

Never mind about Myst. I've read the reveiws. Not good.

I think myst is still the best selling game ever. I just don't like those first person, pre-rendered games. I dunno why, but I hate em.

Nah, The Sims is now.

Myst series: I never know what I'm expected to do next. I don't like the puzzles. Gave up on Myst and Riven (for the time being).

I don't know why I didn't buy Broken Sword 2 earlier, since I liked part 1. You should try both. I got the Revolution pack with Beneath A Steel Sky and Lure Of The Temptress at eBay.

That Total Revolution pack? Thats great, I would've got it but since I own all those games anyway I didn't. I think its unavailable now, which is crazy. it was only out for less than a year.

Came out almost 3 weeks ago. Its pretty good. Its point and click which is a plus, it appears to be quite long(I hope) the puzzles arn't incredibly interesting but solvable.

Few Negitives, lots of document/book reading in game, and Blah diologe

if you're craving Adventure get it.

I think the structuring of Riven is genius. It's ****ing frustrating but that game is brilliant. It must have been hell designing an adventure game that is basically one gigantic puzzle instead of a string of small ones.

Syberia is not a good game (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/reviews/reviews_story.php?oid=80641&pid=20020918153756).

Riven is a great game (http://www.cdmag.com/articles/006/150/riven_review.html).

It all depends on what kind of gamer you are. I've played all the Myst games, and regard them as excellent, if not completely my cup of tea. I agree with Jake. You just need to be ultra-patient, and take your time over puzzles. A bit like a crossword.
