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. But avoid what I went through, don't buy this USED PC game.
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. No Japanese RPG will ever be unique, because "new" mechanics are always simple mash-ups of previously released titles. Slowly robbing the uniqueness from older titles far more deserving of your spare time.
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. Now it’s Square-Enix’s turn to have a crack at the Unreal Engine III.

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. TLR plays like an RPG, except that every "unit" is actually a small squad made up of 1 to 5 people.
Summary: At least for the PC its an average game. If you love RPGs like I do its worth playing. There is alot to do and the game looks great as far as graphics (on a high powered pc at full settings) The problem is that on a pc the controls are a little tricky and the only guide I found was for xbox (which I dont own} and all the controls listed was for xbox controls. Also, you dont have a lot of freedom to go out and look around.
Conclusion: Graphically this game Is beautiful and nice but not as great as something like Oblivion. For whatever reason you require a powerful graphics card with a lot of ram attached to said card to get a decent frame rate. Do not bother buying if you have a 256MB card, you will experience slowdown/framerate problems. Not sure if its a coding problem yet people who can run games graphically superior to this, have problems getting the game to run as smooth as what theyd like.
Summary: A la vue du nom de Square Enix, certains d'entre vous ne pourront s'empêcher de penser à Final Fantasy. Oui, mais malheureusement, ne vous attendez pas à un jeu de l'envergure de ce dernier. En effet, même si la durée de vie est plus que louable, le scénario, autant que les graphismes sentent trop le réchauffé et on a du mal à vraiment rentrer dans le jeu tellement les combats sont longs.
Pros: La durée de vie, La bande son
Cons: Le système de combats, Le manque d'originalité
