    Manufacturer's Description

    In ancient times, mysterious artefacts referred to as Remnants were discovered all over the world. Offering incredible power, they soon came into the hands of the covetous few, and thus was the world’s delicate equilibrium shattered. The people were divided into those who ruled and those who were ruled over. War was inevitable. Our story begins a thousand years later...

     Rush lives with his sister Irina on secluded Eulam Island, a place far removed from the ceaseless battle for control over the Remnants which rages on the mainland. However, his peaceful life is shattered one day when he witnesses his sister’s abduction by a mysterious group of soldiers. He immediately sets off after them, ill-prepared for the evils of the outside world but determined to find his sister at any cost.

    CUTTING-EDGE ADVENTURE

    Developed to take advantage of the latest advances in hardware, THE LAST REMNANT features groundbreaking visuals and bombastic sound. With the might of Unreal Engine 3, SQUARE ENIX’s legendary production values have been taken to the next level.

     A WORLD FILLED WITH REMNANTS

    The dynamic game world revolves around the awe-inspiring Remnants. They vary in size and shape and it is said that there are thousands or even millions to be discovered. Each Remnant contains a unique power that affects the abilities of those around it – but the powers of many Remnants remain unknown…

     HUGE BATTLES

    The game’s innovative command system allows 70 units to engage in a bloody and balletic battle to the death. In the midst of the carnage, with visceral finishing blows landing left and right, players will experience the exhilaration of a soldier on the battlefield.

     CAPTIVATING NARRATIVE

    First class writing is complemented by top quality vocal talent and direction, delivering spectacular drama which fully immerses you in the world of the Remnants.

     MADE FOR THE WORLD

This has got to be one of top single player RPG games out to date still not as good as FF7 (created by Square) but still it puts a whole new experience into battling monsters and bosses in a turn based battle system. Combat is based on Unions (groups of people in one group) if the Health of that Union gets empty the entire union is dead, this forces players to setup specific units in each union maximizing the unions potential.

The game aims on strategy when battling:
Characters stats
Weapons & Shields
Magic
Union Formations (key role in battling)

the game is well worth the money.

Pros:
Excellent battle fights
Timed button pressing while battling (increase damage or counter attacks the enemy)
Graphics are just superb
Story line keeps you interested (a true square story line)
Cinematic are great to watch
Great strategy setups
You can't out level bosses which means when you level up so does the bosses. Normal critters stay the same level though they do get boosted special attacks.

Cons:
Must have internet access to activate over steam (steam is a pain in the A** to setup but once up and running it's fine)
Controls can be fiddly (Don't recommend using the mouse as you do unexpected 180* turns)
Grinding for materials can get boring (to upgrade your weapons and shields)
Lack of control when in battles

9/10

First things first: from what I understand from what I have read, get the PC version rather than the XBox one. There are apparently annoying bugs in the XBox version.

To be honest, I struggle to review things I like, compared to those I have issue with. It's far easier to tear down than to build up, it seems, especially without giving away details which are so much better to find out as you play. So this is probably going to be a relatively short review. Because, quite simply, I love it. It's a hidden gem which, especially now that it's older and cheap, you should really give a try if you like jRPGs. If like me, you love(d until no. 13) final fantasy, then give it a shot. It'll have a lot of the things you love about that sort of game, and you have little to lose.

Obviously it's hard to judge some things in a game a few years old, like, for example, graphics, but to be brief - the graphics are fine, I like the music, the story more than adequate (and a lot better than some of Square Enix's more recent attempts), one cut scene in particular which I consider fantastic, but, sadly, there's what I'd consider some irritating voice acting from the main character.

Like most RPGs, and, possibly, stories in general, you start out with a lone character, and build up from there, and in a way that is a pity, because until you gain a large number of party members the battle system doesn't really shine. It's an odd system in some ways, which takes a little bit of getting used to, but once you start to understand it it really shines. You see, you don't control units. You control squads. (Although you can make a squad of one...)

Once you have divided your units up into squads, you give them general instructions, rather than specific ones.

Recieved this 3 days after ordering on standard delivery which was a surprise for one.
Been a good game so far, the graphics are good for the release date, maps are abit small though but the story is really gripping.
Good game overall, its fairly simple,however, perhaps abit too simple for my likings but overall i'd give this a 7/10.

Played the demo for this non stop, loved it, the game seems set to be very fun. Its been way too long since an rpg of this caliber has come out, its association with square enix still puts shivers down my spine.

Cant fault amazon on this one, got the game bang on 20th of march, the supposed release date. However after trying to activate the key, i find the release date is now the 9th of April and I am unable to play the game till then, this online steam activation really sucks.

So my advice to you is maybe don't go ahead and order this till a little closer to the release or you're going to end up sat in frustrated anticipation for 2 and a half agonizing weeks, like I'm going to. Its such a shame because steams demo download feature had me so impressed but a last minute delay on release is far from acceptable behavior.

Strange game. Everything you expect of an eastern RPG except that you fight with a number of groups of people instead of a number of people and you suggest commands rather than set commands.

If you select standard attack each person in the group takes a turn to hit an enemy in an enemy group.
If you select magic attack each person will standard attack unless they can do magic in which case they will do a magic attack.
If you select special attack each person will standard attack unless they can do special attacks in which case they will do a special attack.
You can sometimes let them do what they think is best which turns out to work well.
You can sometimes heal and attack which turns out to work well. (sometimes your group or sometimes another group)
You can sometimes heal and anyone who cannot heal stands still which can seem a disappointing suggestion if heal and fight doesn't show up in the list of suggestions. (sometimes your group sometimes another group)

Being able to select heal requires either a magic healer or a person with herb skills and spare herbs and a group that needs healing.
If you gang your groups up on a single enemy group you get flanking bonuses.
Groups of magicians do better magic commands, groups or warriors do better special attacks and mixed are mixed.

The fighting is all a bit random and sometimes you hit a wall with enemy difficulty after finding it easy. That is the games way of telling you to go elsewhere. The characters and graphics and story are all of a familiar style, it looks the part, it has a massive amount of flashy enemy bashing, but something about the game doesn't quite work. The story is about a brother and sister and saving people and blah blah heard it all before.
