    Side Quests Galore...

    Awesome! 10/10! I've always loved the NES and SNES era of RPGs but there seems to be a significant lack of those types of games in past years. Last Dream takes the best of what I loved about those old Squaresoft games and adds amazing new features such as it's AP distribution system to build unique characters or the massive achievement system.

    Another thing I love about Last Dream is the ability to choose my own characters. It's very rare to have such an ability in RPGs but it adds a great deal of strategy and replayability. Sometimes, I'll sit at the character selection screen pondering the different strategies I could use with a variety of party combinations. And importantly, the character classes are very well balanced. You can tell the developers spent a great amount of time play testing and balancing the skills of the various character classes.

    The developers have been wonderful with updates to the game that have added additional features such as the ability to toggle the window size of the game or a new fast forward feature to blast through easy battles.

    Last Dream is great, and if you loved games like Final Fantasy I, Secret of Mana, and Chrono Trigger, you should definitely check this one out!

    Last Dream is brilliant in game play, and stunning in music - I literally turn on the game sometimes just to listen. Very well thought out, and better/deeper with each passing hour. Totally, totally solid game! Definite 10/10. Expand

    I have not enjoyed a challenging and vast RPG like this since Final Fantasy. Fun puzzles, great flashback cutscenes, good battle system, interesting story, awesome characters, super music, and just well made. My highest recommendation and a steal at $10. Expand

    Last Dream is a solid RPG game built in RPG maker, although the game does not play in full-screen, it is still very expansive with lots of abilities, attributes and different characters to keep you immersed. Incredibly similar to the early Final Fantasies, It is a 2D experience, and my personal recommendation would be aimed at players looking to relive the glory days of a simple graphical experience that will keep you playing for hours.

    Very good game that reminds me of earlier final fantasies. Very high amount of customization and very expansive. One thing Id like to see is a full screen option though. Right now you only get a very small windows to play on Expand

    A solid retro-styled RPG with a lot of character customization options available, unlike most JRPG you actually pick which stats you upgrade on leveling and what skills you buy. The combat is your typical turn based affair and there are options to change the battle difficulty and encounter rate so you can tailor things to your tastes. The story is quite interesting once it gets going too with quite solid writing. There are also various paths through so there is some replay value there and a new game + for repeat plays. Expand

    I would wait a bit before diving in to this one. It looks pretty deep and offers some interesting customization options, but is still quite rough around the edges. A day after the game was released, they released a new patch that had the magnificent effect of deleting your game saves. An obviously large amount of work was put into this game though, so perhaps it would be worth buying in a few months once they've worked out the problems. Expand
