Overall, the game was enjoyable and challenging whether you were one of the kids or the psychos. This is definitely a good game to play with friends; but if you don’t have any of those, the quick match option will get you into the action in no time. Enjoy!
Every match of Last Year begins with a cutscene of the students poring over a blueprint of their escape, a rudimentary roadmap of the adventure to come. At this point, that feels like the development stage Last Year is currently at. The core gameplay offers moments of undeniable excitement, but without more depth, variety, and some sense of progression, Last Year won’t survive long against the competition.
Last Year: The Nightmare is a solid take on asymmetric survival horror. The class-based gameplay makes each successful escape feel like a well-earned victory, and the versatility and over-the-top brutality of the killer makes playing as the bad guy wicked fun. Respawning during a match may take away some of the fear of death but prevents a round from feeling like a foregone conclusion until the last, terrifically tense moments.
