The Last Story

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: In trying to get Nintendo to release The Last Story in North America, I count myself among the most vocal of petitioners. As a fan of Mistalker's work and a lover of Lost Odyssey , I considered it the perfect swan song for the Wii, the kind of game that could embody everything good about the Wii (and there was plenty of good) one last time. When Nintendo refused to release it, I was among the angry and the riotous.

  • Summary: What started out as genuine confusion on my part slowly transformed into unabashed giddiness at a game willing to take risks and reap the consequential benefits.
  • Pros: Unique combat system with plenty of depth, Wonderful chemistry between characters, Great visuals and music
  • Cons: Main plot is forgettable, Surprisingly linear

The Last Story review

GameZone
14 September 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s something truly admirable about a video game that can really captivate you and make you care about its plot and all of its characters. This is the case with The Last Story , a fantasy RPG from the mind of the legendary Hironobu Sakaguchu. The game isn’t afraid to present a story that properly delivers a combination of serious overtones, humorous moments, and straight up WTF scenarios.

  • Conclusion: The Last Story is one of those games that everyone who is into RPGs should play, however its one that will only be enjoyed by those who are into JRPGs and looking for something different. When you step back and look at the overall picture, you can easily see that Hironobu Sakaguchi’s vision for The Last Story was well executed.

The Last Story

Game Revolution

  • Excerpt: I sure hope it isn't his Last Story! When I started playing Mistwalker's The Last Story I wasn't terribly impressed; the story seemed trite, the action simple and dull, and the environment a weird Wii -resolution copy of an Assassin's Creed city that you couldn't climb in. Then at about six hours in, I started to get a familiar feeling, something I hadn't felt in a long time. It was the same feeling I had playing Final Fantasy IV on SNES.

The Last Story

GameTrailers
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Last Story--an appropriate title for what may very well be the platform’s swan song--is an RPG from the original creators of the Final Fantasy series. The game’s unique battle system, multiplayer elements, and mission structure are a departure from the norm. A North American release seemed quite unlikely for a spell; is this story worthy of possibly sealing the Wii’s legacy? Love is the central theme of The Last Story.

Review: The Last Story for Nintendo Wii

TechnologyTell
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Last Story loves its battle system. The story opens with a fight, after all; you and a few members of your band of mercenaries battling Reptids in a cave system worthy of The Lord of the Rings . In fact, your first boss battle ends quite similar to a familiar battle in Fellowship of the Ring . I’m drawing the comparison for a reason. Many reviewers are content to compare/contrast The Last Story with another Wii game: Xenoblade Chronicles .
