  • James Enk

    any input about The Last Remnant?

    • Amber XLeonhart

      It’s one of my favorite RPGS from square enix. I didn’t think I’d like it so much. I love everything about the game honestly. People have different of opinions though. I’m thinking of buying it since on regular steam price it was like $60. I thought they were crazy..

    • Daigure

      I was about to ask that, but at it’s current price, I’ll go with it

      • James Enk

        i was thinking about getting it for a long time but i wasn’t sure if it was a good game

        • Pablo Sanchez

          its a really good game

        • Tiredman

          Its a unique game. I enjoyed it, I have it for the Xbox 360. Its a bit of a pain with its leveling system, but the characters are cool, the big battles are cool, and once you get the hang of it, there is a lot of depth.

      • Freud_Hater

        I’d wait for it to be at 0.99 $. That’s all it’s worth.

        • onyhow

          Plain bull, sorry. The game is worth way more than $1.

          • Freud_Hater

            Fair enough, difference of opinion. I just… I didn’t even pay full price for my copy and still feel I wasted my money for veeery little enjoyment.

          • onyhow

            Mind if I ask why didn’t you enjoy it? It’s generally better to elaborate (or run risk into misunderstanding, like what I did last time, so sorry!)

          • Freud_Hater

            Well, like I said it really comes down to opinion: I hated the combat system, I found the characters boring and uninvolving, the music was only just meh and the story had already been done hundreds of time (And that’s not even much of a hyperbole, here) The graphics were pretty good but… the game was glitchy like hell, man Oo It might’ve just been my own copy since it was second-rate (Though it wasn’t scratched up or anything) but the game kept freezing at pretty random moments and the graphics would get oddly corrupted, some enemies or even characters becoming invisible until they were killed or entered a cutscene. And the ending is soooo bland and generic ¬¬ So yeah, just my personal experience (and, to be honest, it was probably worsened from the constant glitches I was experiencing) but I totally hated the game. Glad you had a fun time, though ^^’

      • Ngolem

        Like any rpg worth caring about, it takes a few hours minimum to really “get”, which explains the wildly mixed impressions. About 80% of the game isn’t even visited in the main quest. mastering the battle system becomes addictive.

    • Andar

      Simply put, the battle system in the game is a mess, as well as everything that is tied to it. Even just managing equipment and levels across your party ends up being both vague and difficult. And the further you get in the game, the worse it gets.

      The characters are interesting, and what I got to see of the story was alright, but battles are generally your primary gameplay mode in a JRPG (with ‘field’ gameplay serving as a vehicle to move you from one battle to the next), and when the battles are tedious or just don’t flow well, it really kills the game as a whole.

    • Spirit Macardi

      It’s a unique game, that’s for sure.

      The battle system is a bit nebulous, but it works. There’s a ton of item crafting and material gathering if you’re into that. The main character is pretty likable and you can have him develop his fighting style as you please.

      It’s certainly not for everyone but there’s a demo available if you want to test it out.

    • Eilanzer

      If you like a good story, a good main character and a good gameplay…Look elsewhere ^^
      At least the game has good side characters and the japanese audio included /o/

    • vault2049

      It is a good Strategy-RPG game. Gameplay is solid, the story and characters are lacking though. Good replayability value.

      I got this game for 10$ back in the day and I still think it’s a steal. For 3.99? Sure, go for it with your eyes closed.

    • Asaoko

      People are going to tell you that the battle system is a mess but really, that’s how battlefields are! Messy! Sure, it’s a real pain in the arse not being able to heal your other party members, but if you think about it, you’re not going to like seeing your characters running through an enemy troupe any better. That’s just stupid.

      …I mean, I really like the game. Very good. It’s really good. For me. Yeah. D;

    • Ferrick

      the battle is solid, easy to manage, but the story was a mess halfway through

    • Sydney Losstarot

      The PC version is much better than the console version. You can speed up the battles in the PC version. Get it! For a price as low as $4, I don’t think you will regret it.

    • SolRevr

      I would say if you are the type who likes trying weird games because they are interesting to you then go for it. $3.99 is a great price. I paid $10 for it in a sale and spent maybe 12 hours on it. Didn’t finish it, but I enjoyed the experience and have no regret.

      The battle system is definitely unique, and one of the reasons I tried it.

    • James Enk

      Ty for your answers

    • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

      It was $2.49 on GMG 2 weeks ago, I grabbed it then. The story seems to be the draw, the battle system is a War based one, but seems poorly executed. You have squads and you choose who to attack. In one sense it feels like the Total War games but with more RPG elements, and not such a grand scale. You have flanking bonuses, morale and the like. It’s interesting and you can put the game in Japanese as a nice plus.

  • Kornelious

    I was holding out hope for a while that The Last remnant would be released on the PS3……I guess that’s like having hope for tales of Versperia at this point :(

    • Firekitty

      Yeah, me too…I think I might snag a copy now that I finally have a decent computer to play it on, though…

      • Kornelious

        My PC doesn’t even meet the minimum requirments :( So enjoy it on my behalf.

  • idofgrahf

    TBH they are going to have to pay me to play The Last Remant again not the other way around. But then again I usually play for the story and this one is sorely lacking.

    • Tiredman

      I enjoyed it myself. Yes, it was a rough game, but it was interesting. Story wasn’t stellar, but, I don’t know, it was just enjoyable for me.

  • mikanko

    I wish the Soul Reaver games weren’t such a hassle to configure controls for on PC.

  • Monterossa

    Buy the Last Remnant if any of you people never played it yet.
