It's a bad movie that keeps asking you if you would like to continue.

Summary: Was not expecting much when I bought this game; just wanted a good RPG game with a story that I could pass the time with. The only way I can keep playing this game is when I' am completely drunk out of my mind, it's that boring and lame.
Summary: I'm not a huge fan of Japanese RPGs, but I played enough Final Fantasy in my day to understand their premises. This game, however, is NOT Final Fantasy. At least Final Fantasy let you know what was going on, although weird and outlandish it might be. Last Remnant is like reading the fifth book in a series; it does little to tell you who the characters are beyond 'this is there name and they are now your friend'. Kind of odd, if you ask me.
Summary: Tried the PC demo. This game could have been good on the PC but the port job was horrible. It was as if Microsoft paid off Square Enix to support their 360 controller and completely disregard the mouse. I could have lived with not being able to assign move forward to my right mouse button like I always do but when the game started the mouse was useless. You move your mouse thinking you could look around, nothing.
Summary: I was excited when square/enix was coming out with a new RPG but this was a huge disapointment. Typically I don't concern myself too much with a game's battle engine because an effective engine should be intuitive and effortless. That is not the case here. Square tried to shake things up a bit by going to a more "strategic" engine where you give basic commands to platoons of troops such as attack, support allies, heal, ect.
Summary: Well when I preordered this game I saw nothing about steam in the review. I now have 3 games that use steam, Last Remnant, Dawn of War 2 and Empire Total War. So Basically I have spent over $100.00 on games I can't use. I have tried steam, between it telling me that my credentials have expired and that the steam servers are unavailable I have not successfully entered 1 single product registration code successfully into it. I am currently in Afghanistan.
Summary: Haven't played this game yet, though I've heard it isn't bad, and I won't!! Not because of the game, but because of Steam. Buying games that install top-heavy programs-so called "download managers" and such, like Impulse and Steam- that insert themselves into your PCs startup routine is a little like getting home from the supermarket, opening the can of chili you jsut bought, and finding bug eggs in it.
Summary: This game should be awesome in and of itself, don't have a broadband connection to install steam and download your game from the net? Don't buy this game! No where does this game mention steam is required, on the package, on this amazon website. Square-Enix, please remove the dagger from my back!
Summary: Well, I don't understand why so many of the game manufacturers lately decided to shoot themselves in the foot. But the fact that they now require some kind of 'ware' (and yes, it does collect information) software to be installed on your PC in order to play something that you have purchased, is beyond ridiculous. Of course they don't put the warning on the box or anywhere else about this either. You just find out when you insert the disc into your DVD-ROM.
