Summary: After reading a number of reviews and liking a lot of what I saw, I decided to give this game a try. Since I have a Steam account, the installation for me was simply entering the DVD Key Code and waiting for it to download. After that I cranked it up to see what I had.
Summary: The disc itself works BUT since this is a USED COMPUTER GAME it needs a product key # to work. Basically only the original owner of this disc can play this game. So I purchased something which I could simply not use. The seller was really understanding and gave me a full refund.
Summary: I bought this directly from square-enix.com for 50% off recently. ($7.50). Overall: It certainly has its flaws, but being a fan of games like Final Fantasy 3, 7, 10-2, and 12, Phantasy Star Universe, Xenosaga (PS2), Dot Hack games (PS2), and so on and so forth, this game is pretty good.
Summary: Read above. But for all that, price is encouraging, and you get another sponge to take your man-hours, never letting you get 'em back. Eh, if you're a gamer, you'll play one of these periodically. People say combat's unique here. No, it's not.
Excerpt: Once upon a time, a company developed an game engine called the Unreal Engine III. This beast of a game engine let games shine with detail and has been used in several stellar titles. These titles include Gears of War, Mirror’s Edge, and Lost Odyssey.

Summary: "The Last Remnant" is a strategy RPG (with more of the latter than the former) produced by Square-Enix using the Unreal 3 engine. It stands as a bit of a departure from regular Square-Enix RPGs in a lot of ways, and while it has its attractions as an overall product it's somewhat disappointing.
Summary: I love RPGs. I thought Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, Fallout 3, and Oblivion were all great games. But Last Remnant is only an ok game in my opinion. I downloaded the game to my hard drive to try to fix the technical problems.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game since i'm a huge jrpg-fan and the only really good one i got to play on the 360 so far was "lost odyssey". unfortunately, not story, not graphics, not gameplay could keep up with "lost odyssey" by a long shot.
