    I'd rather burn myself than play this game. And after receiving second degree burns before I say that rather seriously.Horrible slowdown, graphic issues, over complicated attack systems, jerky character movement, and not to mention horrible British accents. I really tried to play this game I really did but it was so bad that after 5 minutes I stopped

    Hard to level up.. you fight the same monsters over and over and over and over again.. Story line is Okay.. not great.. Not worth all the time spending to level up your characters. It has nice graphics and it can be fun but it takes too much time to do anything and fighting the same enemies is a drag.. I would not buy or rent this game.. stay away and wait for Star Ocean to come out on Hard to level up.. you fight the same monsters over and over and over and over again..

    While some concepts are cool, and the art direction is basic if not attractive JRPG fare, this game sucks. You more watch it than really engage in the looooonnnnnggggg battles. And in a game that requires so much grinding, that just too awful. skip it, avoid it. Its awful, and a continuation of square enix sulling its good name.

    Ok the beginning of this game was ok, it had potential. The graphics where decent, storyline was going well and i thought this might be a decent rpg. Nooooo, After 5 hours into the game i had 12 people plus in my party. The action battle sequences where hellish to watch, you just didnt know what was going on. The leveling system was also extremely poor. This is a game i would notOk the beginning of this game was ok, it had potential.

    Avoid this game at all costs the combat system is terrible, there is no level up system you can't give items to other units you control they ask you for items you need the problem is they only do this 9 times out of 10 better off catching the plague then paying for this turd of a game

    Plutôt joli ce jeu japoniais (pour un moteur Unreal) et avec la direction artistique bizarre et "particulière" pour ne pas dire de mauvais goût des jeux japoniais du genre (mais les Final Fantasy XIII sont tout de même plus réussis à cet égard).

The Last Remnant se paye tout de même le luxe de ramer assez souvent avec des ralentissements aussi inexplicables qu'incongrus pendant les combats...

    Des combats au tour par tour qui dans le principe semblent intéressants mais qui sont en réalité à des millions d'années-lumière de ce à quoi on peut s'attendre, nous, les Occidentaux (Heroes of M&M, King's Bounty, Xcom, Omerta...). Des points d'action ? juste une barre jaune impossible à quantifier. Des déplacements à gérer ? que nenni. Une vue globale du champ de bataille ? non. Est-ce qu'on peut au moins tourner autour de ses unités ? juste à 180° et encore ! peut-on dézoomer ? même pas ! pourtant Front Mission 3 sur PS1 était pas mal fait du tout... sans doute l'exception qui confirme la règle.

    On incarne un jeune con (on dirait un gamin de 12 ans) qui a le charisme d'un Kévin. Les dialogues (en anglais) ont la platitude d'un spot pour une lessive. Quant à l'histoire, elle est d'une niaiserie impossible à quantifier, elle aussi. C'est malgré tout un peu moins insupportable qu'un FF XIII tout en restant d'un ennui incommensurable. Une purge !

    There are certainly bits and pieces of decent storytelling hidden throughout the game, but for every ounce of beauty, you get three humdrum pounds of grind. [Holiday 2008, p.78]
  2. In short, The Last Remnant that has all the trappings of a game in the RPG genre, but fails to stand out from the crowd. [Dec 2008, p.119]

    It's really too bad that The Last Remnant is so uneven. For every one thing it does right, there is a glaring fault that ruins the fun.
