Mitra, yama, qsiti, sovani... These four races exist in one world. A world filled with Remnants — mysterious artifacts from an ancient era.
Who created the Remnant? How long ago? And for what purpose? With these questions left unanswered, the Remnants became beneficial tools used for the good of civilization. The world was at peace...or so it seemed. Who was to know such darkness lay in wait?
The powers of the Remnants slowly began to change the world's balance. A rift slowly formed between those who ruled and those who obeyed. This was the dawning of a new era — an era of countless frays that would be brought upon the world by those enslaved by their own lust for power.
A thousand years later, the journey of one young man begins.
Featuring an enthralling story, countless characters and an intricate battle system, Square Enix brings the RPG experience known as The Last Remnant to the PC. Discover new strategies in the improved battle system.
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-
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.
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.

When The Last Remnant came out in 2009, I decided to put it on my to-play list, considering how much I love RPGs. However, thanks to the overwhelming number of great games nowadays like the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series, and due to the lack of time, I didn't get to try The Last Remnant...that's until one month ago i decided it's about time to give it a try, and it didn't disappoint ! The good things in The Last Remnant cold be summed by: - epic story - attractive design style - addictive combat ( once you know what you are doing ) - long series of satisfying boss fights - tons of varying monsters and opponents, each requiring a different strategy to beat - Replayability: I've spent about 120 hours playing this game, and tried (not too hard) to be a completionist, but despite that, it seems that I have missed a lot of quests and much content. Beside that, the hard mode is unlocked once you beat the game, and you can do a second replay of the game without losing your stuff, so it is tempting to do a second replay. The shortcomings are: - Limitation of customization: you can only change the equipment of the main character, Rush Sykes. - Despite the good cut-scenes, there tended to be long pauses between the speech - You have to do too much fighting to raise your battle rank so that you can face the ridiculously tough bosses - Lack of a proper documentation or manual explaining how exactly the combat mechanics work, and you have to do a lot of searching in the forums and Wiki to learn detailed information about weapons, formations and combat mechanics. I've had a lot of fun playing this game. However, it can be true that this game may not suit everyone, because it's not your typical role playing game. I kept thinking of this game as a deck card game in first person.
Interesting take on the genreKingTed | April 23, 2015 | See all KingTed's reviews »
The Last Remnant tells the story of a teenage boy and his sister who got both caught in a war involving the so-called “Remnants”. Those things are ancient relics with monstrous power that some nation which to use as a weapon of mass destruction. It’s a pretty interesting story with likeable characters like David or Emma. There are also a few races of beast-like creatures among the characters. I’m pretty fond of the Four-arms- Panther-men guys! The game’s presentation is well executed. The soundtrack offers many epic songs and the graphical issues that plagued the console version are almost all gone here. On the side of gameplay, The Last Remnant is very original for a JRPG. First of all, you can have up to eighteen characters in your team at the same time. Why? Because your main characters are in facts generals and each of them has a few soldiers under his command. So you get to fight using several squads at the same time. There is not much to do with them, though, since you can only order them to do certain things like “Attack using your magical skills” without being able to select which spell you want them to use. However that’s not a problem here. You have just enough things to consider during battles (There are a lot of features here like deadlock, flank attack and so on...) and the enemies can be quite tough to beat! You have to use a good strategy to win most of the time. Out of battle, you can recruit new soldiers just like in any Tactical RPG which is kind of unexpected for The Last Remnant. There are also a lot of side quests to do. The Last Remnant is certainly not the best JRPG ever made but it’s a solid package of fun and challenge.

The last remnant is a good JRPG experience. It offers pretty graphics (still very pretty in 2014 standard) and story line akin to the likes of final fantasy. Switch the voice to Japanese and it's like watching a 3D animated version of your favorite anime. Well, with game play. The comabt may look simple, but there's actually quite a bit of complexity to it. Instead of focusing on stats for individual characters, it makes you focus on the synergy of groups. Lots of experimenting makes group management interesting (not just equipping the best weapon/armour to your characters). The stand-out feature for me are the boss fights. Imagine dark souls boss fights in turn based fashion.. now throw in the addition that your character may freak out due to low morale. This really provides the sense that you worked hard for the victory. Bottom line, worth checking out for all the JRPG fans on PC.

The game it looks like a anime movie. It very simplistic, reminds me of the old 2d games but you can enjoy the story which is the reason i actually bought it. The story of the game is interesting, especially if you enjoy this kind of thinks, not to mention you can put to hear the Japanese language and have english sub making the game better The game play it different then any other game that i played but i can actually say that you need more a console then a keyboard, you will enjoy it more and it not that complicate.

Last Remnant only holds the namesake of a Square Enix title. I can't say that I really enjoyed it. It falls into the stereotypical JRPG story and characters. The combat itself is a little different to the typical turn base strategy, but it doesn't do enough to hold my interest. If you're in the mood for a JRPG with a slightly different combat system, then The Last Remnants wouldn't be a horrible choice, particularly if you can grab it on sale. Otherwise, there are better games that are worth your time.
