The Last Remnant -Xbox 360 by Square Enix

This game has a lot of potential but in my opinion it needs some work so overall I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. If you’re thinking about buying this game I implore you to consider what it is you really like about RPG’s then go on online and look up some gameplay footage to see how it this game plays out firsthand. When it comes to video games, I think it’s better to watch videos as opposed to only reading reviews (especially when the game is an older one so there’s lots of input about it already online). I bought this with a lot of excitement in my heart unfortunately after only a few hours of gameplay I found myself yawning and I have to say I’m more than a bit disappointed in this. 

The opening of the game did grab my interest a little… and only a little and all this talk of Remnants kinda makes you curious but it is no Final Fantasy so don’t go in thinking you’ll get that kind of gameplay or storyline out of this game. The graphics are decent most of the time (a little glitchy at others). The battle system is okay but leaves a bit to be desired. You pick a command but it is super general (You don’t get to choose fire, steal, blades of fury, etc. Just choose magic or combat, use heal, or wing it) the characters act as a big confusing group, then your opponent’s attack as another group, and then it’s your turn again. I won’t go into any more detail than that. Like I said in the beginning, it has potential but in my humble opinion it needs some work to be truly gratifying to hard core RPG lovers like myself.
