Don't get for the 360!
17 December 2010
Summary: This game runs absolutely horrible on the 360! In the first few hours of playing, I had a headache. If you have a reasonably decent PC with a good GPU then consider picking it up for that. There's even a benchmark program out there for free so you can see how well it will run on your PC first. The gameplay and story are great but the technical issues on this platform make it unreasonable to play.
Summary: I'll start by saying that I generally don't play Japanese RPGs, but I thought I might start with this one, as it seemed to get high reviews on other game reviewing sites. A big mistake. This game seems to have got everything wrong - it can't decide whether it wants to be a strategy game or an rpg, you can't customize your character, no open world(which seems to be becoming a given in rpgs these days), awful weapon variety, bad graphics in general, cliche dialogue and...
Summary: GRAPHICS---10 TEN SOUND-----10 TEN MUSIC---10 TEN GAME PLAY---1 ONE I love Square Enix ever since Dragon Warrior one however this game has been a VERY BIG DISAPPOINTMENT ---soo sad you do not control the combat hardly at all DURING COMBAT YOU WATCH IT LIKE A MOVIE--THEN AT KEY MOMENTS YOU PRESS A BUTTON, A BRIEF WINDOW WILL POP UP DURING COMBAT THAT LETS YOU KNOW WHAT TO HIT YOU HAVE TO HIT THE RIGHT BUTTON REALLY FATS TO GET THE CREDIT--BASICALLY ITS CHECKING TO SEE IF...
Summary: It's like Square and Microsoft brainstormed every possible way to ruin a strategy game and still have it be sorta fun. Concept: 9/10 The Last Remnant is turn based strategy game set in a fantasy universe created by the masterminds who created Final Fantasy. You play as a young adult named Rush. Rush's sister has been kidnapped by villains that want to use her innate magical abilities to take over the world. You can access areas through a World Map.
Summary: Square Enix should be ashamed to have their name on this game. It looks like a PlayStation 2 game with poor production quality. Even with the terrible graphics, the game manages to run into framerate problems. The battle system is absolutely horrible.
Summary: I have an idea! Let's create a Strategy Game in which the player doesn't get to decide where his characters stand or what they do. And even if the player DOES get to choose a good option the character might decide to "Reassess" and do something else anyway. This game is more based on random events than any kind of strategy. I'll try to keep this brief because I already wrote a 4 page blog about all the things that piss me off about this game.
Summary: Yikes! A great game, but horribly marred by huge slowdowns thoughout every battle sequence. It feels like SquEnix didn't even try to optimize this game for the 360. I installed this game to the HD right away, but sadly, things didn't get noticably better. Wait for the PS3 version... I'd say this is worth $20 tops or a rent to see some mega-slowdown and texture pop in action. This thing plays, looks, and feels rushed, like some bad leaked beta.
