Summary: It needs a console controller, which would be fine if that was clear before purchase, but it wasn't. Lots of games are ported from a console, so most of us are used to the keyboard/mouse workarounds, but I couldn't get a menu open, couldn't get to any options, even after hitting every key on the keyboard, and couldn't get out of the game because the escape key did nothing. What a mess. It's a shame. The game looked fun.
Summary: This might be a great game, but I was too frustrated with the clumsy PC controls to give it more than 30 minutes of playing. The camera is clumsy, the controls are not intuitive, and the menus are either too large for the screen or too small to read. Perfect example of how not to port a game from a console to the PC.
Summary: I have not been able to play this game much since set-up option and game does not save. Unless you have game controller, keyboard will be your only source since mouse is rendered completely useless (as mentioned above). I have been in contact with the support with Square Enix for almost a month now. They do respond (very slow) but so far, solutions for my problems are: 1) update your driver - DONE, but no fix.
Summary: Upon first starting this game I discovered that it does NOT support a mouse, only keyboard and XBOX game controller! A PC game that doesn't support a mouse? COME ON !!!! I read nothing in the reviews that mentioned this, so this came as a complete surprise and disappointment! I really feel that this was a giant ripoff for not stating clearly on the description that no mouse support was provided. Trying to play without a mouse was a completely unacceptable experience.
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.
