Об этой игре

Mitra, yama, qsiti, sovani...
These four races exist in one world.
A world filled with Remnants — mysterious artifacts from an ancient era.
Who created the Remnant? How long ago? And for what purpose?
With these questions left unanswered, the Remnants became beneficial tools used for the good of civilization.
The world was at peace...or so it seemed. Who was to know such darkness lay in wait?
The powers of the Remnants slowly began to change the world's balance.

This game abused the ♥♥♥♥ out of me. I love this game for various reasons, but I can't recommend it. The leveling system is overly complicated. If your Battle Rank is too high at certain points and you can't go anywhere to stat grind, you're ♥♥♥♥ed. The battle system itself is definetely interesting and worth checking out- but be sure to prepapre yourself by reading guides before actually attemping the game. I cannot honestly recommend it, but I understand why others enjoy it.

Кто в ласт ремнант играл, тот в икскоме не матерится.
Сюжет удивительно скучный и смотреть его стоит только ради отлично анимированных и поставленных роликов, это стоит отметить сразу. Что особо странно с учетом того, что в игре есть действительно занятные сайд-квесты. Зато в сайд-квестах нет даже озвучки реплик (даже в японской версии). Так что любителям сюжетов лучше пройти мимо.
Боевая система требует привыкания, выглядит она очень похоже на финалочную походовку с командами, но впечатление обманчиво. Не исключено, что игру придется начать пару раз заново, пока не научитесь качаться (подсказка - гринд вреден) и формировать отряды (подсказка - пять по три лучше, чем три по пять). Даже читы не помогут. Тем более что игра не помогает - половина статов скрыта, часть навыков совершенно бесполезна и система рандомного выбора допустимых команд иногда подкладывает свинью, например, в последней битве мне приходилось тупо убивать свои отряды об забаффанного на пять атак за ход противника, потому что игра не давала мне возможности постоять в сторонке, предлагая только действия ближнего боя.
Тоже плюс, нынче модно жаловаться, что игры копируют друг друга, вот вам необычный экспириенс. А на рандом мы ответим викой. Это не читерство, честно узнать иначе из кого что выпадает нереально.
Собственно сильная сторона игры - это радость манчкина, прокачка навыков, улучшение оружия и охота на боссов. Завоеватель подождет, мне нужно собрать две шкуры харпилии (вероятность получения - 10% на пойманного монстра, вероятность поимки монстра - 30%), чтобы обменять их в гильдии на журналы, позволяющие собирать чешую мух, нужную для апгрейда ремнанта Герцога Гора. А опциональные боссы здесь в лучших традициях, например, мазафака, кастующая армагеддон всему миру на десятом ходу боя. Положительные эмоции все в этом - увидеть, что на локации после перезахода появился нужный монстр, выбить из него нужный ништяк, услышать "Теперь у меня полный набор!" от одного из подручных, скастовать АОЕ-атаку и одним махом уничтожить все войска с подкреплениями.
Поскольку таких игр на ПК не особо богато, монстер хантерами нас не радуют, то любителям качаться и обмазываться таблицами пропускать не стоит.

There is a lot to like about this game. I definitely recommend the game, but I wanted to give a warning to potential buyers. This is one of those games where you can run into a brick wall of difficulty in several places. Make sure you take your time, get all the generals you can get, spend the time to get the best gear, and learn all the different aspects of combat. If you aren't use to tactical positioning, you will end up crushed in a few places. If you aren't use to using statuses (negative and positive) you will get stuck. If you rely too heavily on ultimate attacks, you will lose. Take your time and learn the game well, or you will get very frustrated.

7.5/10 Fun, but you can get stuck very easily, leading to restarts.

Awesome game, I had it on xbox and I bought it on here just to write a review, its an old school Jrpg and the story is passable and enjoyable to play through, it's a bit hard at the start but after that it slowly gets easier and more enjoyable!

An experimental game from Square Enix. Essentially it's a squad based semi-tactical JRPG. Why semi? Because unfortunately it heavily relies on RNG component rather than real tactics. You'll command a mini-army of 18 characters (units) divided by 4-5 squads, the problem is that you can only give them a set of commands (like, "attack with all you've got", or "help the others") and which skills/spells to use they'll decide on their own, for example if you want to bombard a certain enemy with a certain spell than you'll have to rely on luck, your units may decide to use them, use something else or even just simply attack with their weapons. There are few workarounds (essentially just having 3-5 people in a squad with a desired spell will boost chances of casting it or switching targets to get another set of commands) but sometimes it could lead to a very unfortunate results in your battles. I think it's the main reason why this game was not very well received.

Despite all that it's still a very fun game to play, there are a lot of everything in this game: characters, weapons, skills, equipment etc. Believe me - quantity of everything is just enormous. Skill system is pretty complex but once you get a grip over everything you'll be pretty satisfied. There are also a lot of customization options for your army, you can hire generals, soldiers, make different formations, farm rare monsters for materials to upgrade weapons of your soldiers or simply craft them yourself.

I guess you have to try it to understand whether it suits you or not, cause you wont be able to answer that question for yourself by watching related media and at this price I can certainly recommend this game, especially if you're into JRPGs and not afraid to try something new.

My final score is 7/10.

Square Enix managed to draw the stunning beauty of the world , to make a pick-up rollers and come up with an unusual role-playing system . The Last Remnant losing the most important - because of unleavened script at all this beauty is very boring to watch .

I don't understand this game. Why is it trying to keep you away, from a truly epic ending, by any means necessary?
Annoying main character, that i only liked once, in the very end of the game. Forgettable sidekicks/companions, expect for a few, particularly Dave, he really reminds me of King Cailan, from Dragon Age, and i'm glad he didn't die, in some "epic" plot twist.
Cheating. Yup, i said it. The game cheats. I don't have a problem with a tough challange, but i hate when a game is either buged, or so ridiculously keen on punishing you, that it resorts to dirty tricks.
Some say this game is like Dark Souls. But that game requires skill, this heavily relies on luck, not skill, or tactical foresight.
Repetitive luck-based battle system, backed by repetitive music, and aimless wandering around the map, to connect all of this.
After some point, i realized, the only reason i start this game up, is because i want to be done with it as fast as possible. I rushed and exploited my way through half of the game, to be done with it.
Would i start a new game+? No. Why would i? To grind through the same linear story, and risk the possibility of a brain aneurysm? No thank you.
You might have more luck with this game, than i had, but i definitely recommend reading a few guides before starting.
So go ahead, the beautiful scenery, and climactic ending, might be worth the hussle.

5/10

Personal Rating: I liked the game but it's flawed.
Classic Rating: ★★★☆☆

✓ Why did I like it?

Well, this is the second JRPG game I played in my life, being FFVIII the first one - and I loved that, spent an insane amount of hours couch-playing with my PSX.

The Last Remnant is not a masterpiece: graphics are not that good but not even bad - you can smell a console game a mile ahead; story is quite nice but I haven't completed the game yet, so I don't have a full view - I loved all of the cutscenes so far though, they add up a lot to the game; characters (mainly your party) are not so deeply developed but you get a quite well detailed picture despite everything.. Music, voice acting and sound effects are quite good too, they fit game play but also get repetitive (boring?) after a decent amount of hours spent in combat.

✘ Why is it flawed?

Because... You already know, don't you? This cannot be the first review you've read about this game.
Anyhow, combat/inventory systems are flawed, it's not just a tough game.

Fighting can be a PITA because the game offers you only a limited set of choices: what I found terrible is that most of the time I had to battle a Boss I couldn't heal, because there was no option to do that.. I could only fight. And you can believe me that when a Boss strikes, it can take away half of your HP and that's not all... There are attacks and counter-attacks, so you might receive additional damage in one turn and if you're not given an option to heal as soon as you need it, it's game over - no workarounds.
Basically you'll have to grind in order to fight Bosses and I understand that's part of the game, levelling up while doing side quests and so forth, but it can be annoying too.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=660411472

Inventory is half broken too because you can't manage your party's. Say you have some objects sitting in your inventory - a potion, a weapon or anything else - you can't trade it to another companion because it's not possible at all. They can only request you things after you have harvested or crafted them: I read about a hack which lets you edit/use inventories the way they are supposed to, but I personally didn't want to take that route.

Most of my friends warned me about these issues I've been talking of, but I didn't want to listen before actually trying myself.. You know how it went, I have to agree with them.

I won this game in a giveaway, so I am not regretting buying it but I can't recommend it anyway (especially if you're not a true fan of the genre) even if my actual feelings about The Last Remnant are mostly positive.

TLR is a JRPG from Square-Enix with a few flaws and a predictable storyline but is beautifully done.

From the get go, you might have control issues, I did and I had to google how to fix it, but after that it should be a breeze. There isn't a very steep learning curve, but you will most certainly miss things on your first play through than you would if you had known a few things. For example, there's some side missions that unlock certain playable characters that are amazing but they're only open for a limited time, and if you progress in your story you will miss the opportunity to recruit them.

As far as battles go, the fighting is pretty simple, you can set up your characters to form unions (or squads) which pool stats, which I thought was a little disappointing because I really wanted to be able to attack certain characters differently
and position mine differently. Not a bad point, just different from what I'm used to. They have a sort of Limit Break attack move for certain characters like most Square games.

If you do get to check this game out, be sure to play through without a guide first, then check out what you missed, I had a load of fun this way.

Incase you decide to check the guide out first or run through with a guide:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=113566410

In short, I would recommend TLR because it's different but still has a Square uniqueness of fun to it. It has some flaws but the flaws are overlooked by the game's overwhelmingly positive pro's to it's con's.

Могу сказать, что игра просто невероятна!!! Я не знаю больше таких игр как the last remnant. В ней хороший сюжет, хорошая графика ( для своего года ), превосходный жанр игры. И ещё +, это то, что игра очень сложная. Что бы идти на боссов, нужно прокачаться, а с прокачкой вы получаете новые умения. В общем игра великолепна ))) Хочется все таки 2 часть игры =)

The Last Remnant Full Game Review
One of the games that lot of people haven't heard about when word Square-Enix gets tossed around. The Last Remnant is a JRPG that innovated the Battle system a lot with its Union mode, while some of the other parts were somewhat lacking, its still great bang for the buck offering +100h of gameplay and re-playability for people who seek for it

Strong Points
  • For its time pretty great graphics, has aged well
  • Lot of cool character designs and lot of characters you can recruit throughout the game
  • Plenty of sidequests and overall grinding to do (Also offers NG+)
  • Decent Soundtrack, solid entry to JRPG universe
Weak Points
  • Lack of control in fights sometimes
  • Perhaps too much RNG elements
  • Sometimes unfair and too hard game to beat
  • Rather mediocre and uninteresting story

To get more insight to my review please check out the video

I always enjoy Square Enix games, especially this one, I haven't finish the game yet, but I found it really enjoyable. The Last Remnant is a JRPG that seems similar to Final Fantasy although I never actually played it. There is a touch of grinding inside this game, but I wouldn't say it was boring or time wasting, more of entertaining. I have really low standards for most games so I don't think I have a well made opinion on games. However, the graphics, in my opinion, are eye catching, there are some unique looking characters once in a while which I really liked. The sounds and soundtracks are well made and catchy. Only thing I dislike is how the main character is the typical implusive idiot, that rushes in without thinking, it gets boring when most games today has that type of build for the protaganist. Anyways, I found this game pretty good and I wouldn't mind paying full price for a game like this eventhough I bought it during the sale. Would rate 9/10.

SquareEnix released this game back in 2011 for PC (on Steam) and 2009 for the XBox360 - and it shows. Below is a comprehensive list of Pros and Cons, as well as some Middling views after beating the game.

PROS:

+ Story
The story is fairly simple, as is the main character, Rush. He's introduced running into a battlefield while two armies fight - anybody that dumb is surely the main protagonist I want to root for. But, all kidding aside, the story has the basic elements to make it interesting enough to grab ahold of your attention.

+ Graphics
The scenery is absolutely beautiful, and you can tell a lot of detail went into the water/background effects, the way that every city or town has their own unique architecture, and every cave or open area feels both wide open and yet closed off simultaneously, as if something is just over the horizon.

+ Music
While the battle music does fluctuate randomly (more on that below) the tracks themselves are very good at what they do. The sad music is appropriately tear-jerking, the Uh-Oh music is ready to make you panic a little, and the fight music makes you want to swing a claymore through somebody's torso at times.

+ Gameplay
A much-contested portion of this game, based on numerous Critic- and Reader Reviews online, is that the battle system is very interesting. I have to agree - "Interesting" being the operative word here. Some battles are over before they begin, for good or ill, and that makes some fights tedious but mostly it's fair enough to not have to re-re-fight something for the umpteenth time because that one character is too slow.

MIDDLINGS:

~ Travel
You start off the game by running through a cavern. And... that's the entirety of the game. At least, so it seems for the first hour or so. You run here, run there, watch a cutscene, run somewhere else, more cutscenes, finally explore a cave or castle and... more running. Thankfully, once you've discovered a city/cave/dungeon/area, you can just warp to the main entrance directly from the main map, so it's not a huge slog all the time.

~ Areas
The scenery is beautiful, but it's so empty. Every open field is huge - really, really big - and you feel so small. Great, right? Well... no, not really. You can sit and stare at the walls for so long before you want to get to where the story or the fighting is going on, but first you need to run down huge expanses of empty field or desert to get there.

~ Fighting
If the battle system is great, that means that something has to be wrong with the fights - they're interesting enough initially with a small number of people and a semi-large group of enemies (2-4), but that quickly becomes tedious. So they increase the amount of "unions" (groups) available, making the micro-managing element reappear in a shiny new suit. But it's still the Final Fantasy XIII method of winning most of the fights: Mash Enter/Space/X/A to win.

~ Music
The cities and towns share music. The dungeons share music. The only places I know of that have their own musical scores are the optional places to go visit, and even then the music is pretty bland after three hours of it. Battle music especially is annoying, seeing as how it jumps based on how the fight is going. Going badly? Bad music; good fight, good music. Bosses are notorious for this at times, with notable exception being the final boss.

~ Characters
Loads. Almost 300 named characters, each with somewhat distinct characteristics. That "mitra" (human) is a healer, this one's a sword-and-board fighter, and that one uses explosives. Varied and interesting enough for the Generals - that is, the Unique characters you can assign/recruit - to make it so you know who's who right off the bat.

~ Voices
The in-battle and after-battle dialogue is especially tedious after the 20+ hour mark. You really start to hate the way somebody says something about "needing the other one, the other one!" every time they level up. To be fair, hearing Pagus (a main character) give you a backhanded comment on how that spell was "effective" is a nice touch.

CONS:

- Grinding
This game is tiring, and that's because about 85% of the game is running around killing the same enemies hundreds of times for that one item you need to make the one piece of gear that's a slight upgrade to the piece you're already wearing. Not to mention Mr. Diggs (albeit the best character in the game) is necessary to acquire the ores/metals you need to upgrade or create most of the gear you want, so that's also a factor.

- Diggs
The aforementioned Mr. Diggs is a unique aspect to the mining process - a weird rabbit-like creature with huge pink round eyes that dances when it gains a level - but it only adds to the grinding nature of the game. You first acquire him with 5 digs available - he can mine grass or rocks 5 times before you need to exit to the world map and come back in. That, in of itself, isn't so bad; the bad part is that the digsites, and what you acquire from them, are randomized every time you load up the map.

- Crafting
No game from Squeenix these days seems to be complete without some kind of Creation gimmick, and TLR is no exception. The gear you make is better than what you buy, and what you buy is the base for what you make. So you've done your 3+hours of Digging and killing monsters and finally have enough materials to upgrade your weapon for a... +3 attack damage output. That's just ludicrous, and not in a fun way, either.

- Parties
You start out with a small party of about 3-5 people in it, reasonable enough when learning the game, but you don't actually increase the size of that initial party until a good two hours into the game. Seeing as how you go up against bosses and groups of enemies (6-7 groups at most, with about 3-4 enemies in each group) with your small team, it almost seems unfair the lengths you need to go to survive encounters.

So you've crafted that unique 2-handed sword for your beefy tough guy? Too bad, you can't equip it on him manually. Everything is done automatically for you, when the game decides it wants to let them have the item. And even then, without memorizing who's who, you may accidentally give that new weapon to your healer and not your damage dealer.

In combat, your main group could be near death and the others are at top health. There is no "heal me" or "heal them" option available unless the game decides it wants to give one to you. The micro-managing aspects that people said have disappeared from this game are what make it so annoying at the same time. There are times when yes, I really do want to use certain attacks by a certain character on a certain enemy, because I know it'll work really well - but the game decides that said character is going to try and level their fighting ability and not that healing spell I'm trying to increase.

- Combat
The game already takes forever in terms of grinding, and thankfully, the PC port has given us the ability to speed up the fights. It is wonderful - and yet, the sheer volume of fighting negates that entire wonderful feeling. You're going to end up seeing the same monsters again, and again, and again, for nearly the entire game. There is only one part of the main quest where Giants come into play, and only in that one section. The rest of the time, it's generic enemy models.

- Enemies (field)
As stated above, the types of enemies shown on the field are very few in distinction. What is very aggravating are their hit-boxes; the area in which they can start a fight against you. It isn't well defined or even shown, and a gentle tap from a flying enemy above you where you can't see it starts a fight where they get a free turn.

BOTTOM LINE: If the game's on sale, and you like tactical RPGs, go for it. Otherwise, just play Final Fantasy.
(Or Blue Dragon for the 360, it's like this but better.)

This is a great JRPG. At first, seems a sub-Final Fantasy title (and, concerning story, characters and the world, it certainly is), but the stellar combat makes it something special. Also, it's a +100 hours game, even if you don't do all the quests and guild tasks. I played it for 103 hours and got to level 92, without grinding or being too much of a completist.

It took me almost 10 hours to get the hang of combat, but after I understood its system, the game became really exciting. At first seemed like the characters were playing by themselves, but you start to realize how important strategy is. The most important thing is keeping a high morale, by flanking and intercepting the enemy and not letting him do the same to you. And, as the characters learn new "arts", you have more options and the battles get way more interesting _ specially when you "link" several enemies and becomes outnumbered. You can also enable QTEs during combat, to perform critical hits and to parry or counterattack _ it takes a while to get them right and it will make you curse at the screen, but it's great fun.

There were some boss fights that appeared to be impossible, but became a breeze after I changed strategy. This is a game that's not hard at all, but fair: play it well and you'll have a good time. Besides that, there's a lot of customization, from items to military formations.

It's a pity the developers didn't add achievements and trading cards. I'd also love a sequel.

The Last Remnant, one of the best square-enix jrps!
I really love this game! Sadly, it is heavily underrated, unknown and underestimated, the Xbox 360 version didn't give it much popularity, but all the problems it had were solved in the PC version. This game is like an old school jrpg, it uses an evolved and funny to watch turn battle system where you can use up to 18 characters, the game features a LOT of playable characters, many sidequest, epic battles, fantastic cut-scenes, a good story, good voice actors, many playable hours and a very good replay value.
If you love jrpgs you can't miss this game!

From Squeenix comes a fairly fun, non-traditional JRPG. The graphics, IMHO, are stunning, and the gameplay is simple enough to gain good control over if you simply pay attention to the tutorials that pop up when they are needed. One word of advice: in battling multiple foes, take out the ones that would flank you first. Honestly a very nice game, pretty decent story and full of painfully funny dialogue. I don't know if it's for everyone, but if you enjoyed Final Fantasy in its day and want a fantastic graphical update with a lot of fun mixed in, it's one to consider

If you like the "Final Fantasy" then this game is for you!! Game takes about 20-30 hours to beat the main game. Now if you want to do all of the side missions, it will take you about 70-90 hours! This game is big and fun!

Pros
graphics
Many cool character designs and lot of characters you can recruit throughout the game
Many sidequests
Decent Soundtrack
combat system
Unique characters, some of which with backstory to discover in side quests.
main quest is long (20 hours)
Unique cities

Cons
Lack of control in fights sometimes
too much RNG elements
uninteresting story

Best part of this game is that everyone is okay with a giant sword coming out of nowhere and a gateway to heaven are perfectly normal things, but flying remnants are just outrageous.

4 hours into this game and I'm already loving it.
The combat is satifying, everything is sleek and smooth.
A great JRPG and nice soundtrack... Just get it if you like Final Fantasy or want something
different.

Had potential to be a great game, yet seems unpolished.

Story is fine. Enough to keep you hooked.

Gameplaywise it's fairly good.
Big fights with decent strategic freedom, although way too many formations to choose from.

Not to mention that the tooltips are pretty vague and sometimes even mistranslated.
Certain items effects don't do what they're saying in the tooltip, and others are plain cryptic
to you unless you go through the trouble of wiki-researching it.

Another mystery is the leveling system, which isn't anywhere near adequately explained in
the game. This can cause frustrations, since you don't really have a good idea of how strong
you are, until you get your head kicked in by a boss. Most of which are pretty tough.

It's a risky buy.
I can see how a lot of people would quit the game halfway through, given the negatives I mentioned.
But if it's 70% off, as it was for me, I'd take it.
