The Last Remnant, the latest new IP developed by Square Enix, attempts to up the ante of previous Square turn-based titles by cranking up the scale of the combat which, in turn, leads to one pretty epic story. Not that other Square titles don’t...

Taking the game for what it offers makes for a nice diversion in the single-player RPG genre. The game has a few failings, certainly, and those occur in repetitious, grinding battle sequences, a storyline that takes a few hits as you move deeper into...

The first things that’ll strike you about The Last Remnant, after its perplexingly long install process on Steam has completed, is that the menu system is a confusing mess. All the information is there, but navigating is a pain in the posterior....

The Last Remnant's initial release on the 360 was...troubled. But Square Enix listened to the criticism leveled at the game and produced the PC game that, while not perfect, is what should have come out in the first place. At first, I was skeptical...

The PC has not provided a home to many Japanese role-playing games, and when it has, the results have been uneven. How refreshing, then, that The Last Remnant is such an entertaining experience. It features a rich, original fantasy world, obviously...

The herd of single-player role-playing games on the PC seems to be thinning as the years pass by, with subscription-based and free-to-play, pay-per-item massively multiplayer games filling in. While the online games can certainly scratch the itches of...

You soon get introduced to the combat system in the game and it features heavily throughout, for new comers to the Japanese RPG it may be a little daunting at first but its nuances are easy to pickup. You explore the world as dungeons, or...

The Last Remnant was a blessing to play, especially after my last review. While the graphics had many frame rate and texture popping issues, they were just stunning. Luckily, the PC version of the game corrects most of these issues and even adds some...

International Review By Evilgamerz on 73

De RPG is een genre dat al vele verslaafde slachtoffers heeft gemaakt. De magistrale verhalen zijn vaak zo meeslepend dat je er bijna niet meer achter weg bent te krijgen. De laatste jaren is het genre zich ook op andere gebieden gaan evolueren. Zo...

International Review By Gameswelt.de on 79

Die Xbox-360-Version von The Last Remnant war technisch gesehen eine Enttäuschung. Nun steht die PC-Umsetzung frisch im Regal. Schafft Square-Enix die Wende und räumt das Vorurteil der lieblosen Portierungen endgültig aus?...

International Review By Technic3D on 92

Technic3D meint:“Endlich mal wieder ein Rollenspiel aus dem Hause Square Enix für den PC, so etwas hat leider Seltenheitswert, doch The Last Remnant zeigt, dass die Japaner ihr Handwerk noch immer hervorragend beherrschen." Offizieller...

International Review By GameCaptain on 83

Selten kann eine direkte Konsolenportierung auf dem PC mehr überzeugen als im Original. The Last Remnant ist so eine Ausnahme. Die Entwickler nahmen sich die Kritik zu Herzen und behoben teils elementare Fehler wie den stark schwankenden...
