Summary: If it were at all possible to give this less than one star as a rating, I would be all over that. The game-play leaves much to be desired, and while the general idea may have been interesting in theory, the execution is simply a mess! The controls are shoddy, clunky, and overall convoluted. When it comes to story, I felt like chucking the game out of my eleventh story dorm room window!
Summary: Brief Summary : Last Rebellion is a good example of a game that had a good idea, but failed in the execution. I can think of no better description than that cliche. I only recently started playing the game and am in the 2nd half after only a few hours (less than 10), but I wanted to write a review while my opinions are fresh in mind. Good -------- + The illustrations / art is nice.
Summary: A lot of people don't give this game a chance. Most give up when they turn on the game because they don't like the battle system, or they hate watching the cut scenes. But if you give it a chance you'll find that it's an easy and overall fun game. (Also it's short, so keep that mind. With that being said, it's super easy to get the platinum trophy.. You could get it in a few hours.
Summary: I could say a lot about this game but, I'll start with the basics. It's an NISA game with late PS2 graphics. The graphics are only that way because of the shading that the game uses. Besides, if you're one of those gamers that can't play a game if the graphics "aren't GREAT", then go to FF13. Back to the review. The story starts you off in a fight against some ogres. Nothing crazy or anything, just something to get you familiar with the unique battle system.
Summary: I have to agree with Mattaclysm on this one, as much as I love NIS this is a disgraceful game that shames the industry we know and love. For a start I beat the game in 7 hours, and there is NO bonus content, I admit I used a guide (lazy sod I am) but most people seem to complete it within 15 hours, needless to say its very short.
Poorly rated, but a passable game for current pricing

Summary: It's interesting how badly this game is generally rated, yet I didn't find the approximately 12 hours I put into the game all that horrible. Sure the graphics don't push the limits of the PlayStation 3, and the game could certainly have been released for the PlayStation 2, but given the current pricing of the game I'd argue it's worth a purchase. The story isn't all that bad.
