4.0 out of 5 stars The Last Story (Limited Edition) 3 Mar. 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If one wants an illustration of what a good collector's / limited / special edition of a video game should be then The Last Story on the Wii provides a magnificent example! For £10 more than the standard edition asking price (though I ordered my copy when it was even less at £8) you get a considerable amount of added value. What's more, it's a beautiful antidote to many other so-called 'limited editions' of video games where they think that 'exclusive downloadable content' like weapons, armour, map packs e.t.c. somehow constitutes towards a good release, often being used as justification for an average £20-30 price spike on top of the original £40 RRP.

Those of you who are reading this are probably already aware of what the extra items are that are included in this release, but just to be boring I will reiterate the information because it's so much fun to do so!

* The standard white Wii game case that contains the game disc and an english
language instruction booklet (amongst other bits & bobs of paraphernalia)
* A hardback art / illustration book that is roughly the same size as a CD case
* A soundtrack CD that contains selected highlights from the game's superb
soundtrack (the disc is contained in a CD case with its own artwork)
* A superbly designed steelbook case that can house both the OST CD and the game
DVD (the artwork on this case is wonderful incidentally)
* A beefy instruction manual (sure, much of it are the same instructions expressed
through different European languages, but when it's as substantial in size and
weight as it is, you can't help but admire (and remember) what traditional game
manuals use to be like! It smells good as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic game with a great combat system 24 Feb. 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Last Story is from the creator / father of the Final Fantasy series, and it really shines through - this is a classic style JRPG set in a beautiful world (even with Wii graphics!) and I enjoy playing it a lot.

I've been playing the asian version for a while now, and decided to base my review from that since it's excellent.

SOUND / MUSIC :
The sound design / score is done by the japanese composer who worked on the final fantasy series, so expect beautiful piano style scores and a wonderful mix of emotive music while playing. The character themes are great, and the main theme song of the game is fantastic. I would recommend getting this limited edition for the soundtrack CD alone!

STORY :
Very typical (some may say cliche) to the JRPG's of old, classic setting up of a troubled, orphaned mercenary who dreams of a better life, his gang of upbeat friends and of course, the lovely princess who has a lot of secrets. All mixed together in an overarching plot that features twists and turns and evil oppressors. It all feels very familiar but in a 'coming home after a long trip' kind of way. Very nostalgic to the earlier JRPG's such as the FF7-FF9.

The only down side to the story, is the main quest only lasting about 18-20 hours. If you add in all the side quests though there is easily 40+ hours here, and I havent even tried the multiplayer. The story is somewhat lacking in the usual 'fluff' and long dialogue scenes that are typical to this genre, favoring a faster paced and more action orientated story. There is never a dull moment and honestly, the story is fantastic. It will not disappoint, even though it's only 20 hours.

GAMEPLAY:
The combat system is awesome, the best I've seen on the Wii and probably in any RPG for some time.

4.0 out of 5 stars great game 10 Mar. 2012

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this game for my teenage son which he received this morning and he's been playing it non stop for 13 hours and is addicted to it. The graphics are excellent, controls and sound are also superb. The limited edition is pretty cool, comes with a soundtrack cd, a really nice steel case for the game disc and soundtrack cd, an art book and a full instructions booklet.
In my opionion i think the limited edition is well worth the extra ten quid and would make a really cool gift for any teenagers and adult gamers!

4.0 out of 5 stars A story of things to come 15 July 2012
By Jay
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Last Story is a tale of mercenaries with a dream of being knights. The story unfolds on Lazulis Island. A fortified city located in between two warring continents. The story begins with the group of mercenaries trying to increase their standing, but it quickly escalates into a quest to find the reason behind the worlds decay. It's the latest RPG from Mistwalker, the studio behind the Xbox 360 epic Lost Odyssey and the Blue Dragon series. The Last Story is the first game Hironobu Sakaguchi has directed in 20 years. It represents a distinct departure from the traditional turn based titles of his past as he steps into the faster paced world of Action RPGs. Is this quicker, leaner style of game, a natural fit for the Maestro behind Final Fantasy or is it just one step too far.

Well let's start with the important bit, the battle system. For the majority of the game you will be controlling wannabe knight Zael. Before you even take control of the plucky hero, you should choose whether he auto-attacks by tilting the analogue stick or attacks manually via a button press. I've tried out both control setups and they seem pretty much equally effective. The only issue with auto-attack is sometimes when a posse of enemies surround you, the game struggles to differentiate between attacks and movement. Once you've decided which control method to use, it's not just a case of slashing away. There's a combo system at play, the basic idea behind it is, if you attack as a team you cause more damage than attacking alone. To increase your combo, you need to alternate attacking an enemy with a party member. You attack, he attacks, you attack, and then he attacks, and so on. If one of you attacks twice in a row the combo is broken.

From combos to cover systems.
