Summary: This isn't going to be an in-depth review. I thought the game was interesting. It played well. The story wasn't spectacular, but it was different. I feel like it took some of it's concepts from other jrpgs that I played in the 90s. Normally in games, I find the music gets boring and I turn it off. I really enjoyed the music. The voices were awful, sorry, but they just were. The main character played a stereotype that drive me NUTS. I really liked the gameplay.
Summary: The Xbox 360 version of this game was marred by problems, giving it a bad reputation. When they they changed, balanced, and enhanced it for PC (though thankfully left in 360 gamepad controls), it became something truly worthwhile. It almost feels like an MMO in the way that you go off to collect items, hunt monsters of varying rarity, and explore a pretty huge world (honestly, it's probably the biggest a big-budget Japanese RPG has had in the generation).
Summary: We don't get many JRPGs on the PC. This is one of the few. There's a lot to love in this game but there are some problems as well. The biggest problem by far is the interface. You can use your mouse and keyboard but you'll be forced to use the keyboard in situations where the mouse would make more sense (like the main menu). You'll get used to it but it's really sad that this wasn't supported.
Summary: Great game. Good Product. Installs ok with clear instructions. Had some concerns about the translations but it worked out fine. Hopwever, there is an issue with the vocal volume of the game where it is a little bit low compared with the background audio.
Summary: Overall I enjoyed this game greatly, especially after tweaking it... PROS: - The Last Remnant looks GREAT on a high end PC (circa 2008) and plays very smoothly. - Awesome movie sequences. - The gameplay can be addictive. If you enjoy leveling in an RPG, you'll find tons of that here (every stat levels as you fight).
