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.

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.

I must say, i always like this type of game and playstyle, and there aren't that many releases for this type of RPG, which is turn based. The play should be far better than is it, it's kinda linear at some point. However, i really enjoy playing because you have so much to learn and soo much too do, like Final fantasy series. (which i can even compare, of course) Mechanics and a bit awkward at first, but it's easy to control after you understand the skill, and the motavation bar. You have more than 80 unique leaders, chosen by you, all diferent in some point. Tons of weapons you can craft, more and more chalenge and rare monster to deafeat. Not the best, but not the worst. I still recommend who likes to play FF series.

Last Remnant is a JRPG that tries, however, be appreciated by Western audiences. In an attempt to do so, ends up being a middle way that fails to excel: the technical sector is mediocre, the timing of the narrative as well, strategic combat and interesting, as well as the original, but definitely boring. The random battles are replaced by monsters scattered around the maps, a solution that does not satisfy aficionados, nor newbies.
Soild JRPG experiece for the PCInvasion808 | Sept. 15, 2013 | See all Invasion808's reviews »
The Last Remnant is a classic JRPG game that has a few things that set it apart from other Square-Enix games.
The learning curve can be either shallow or steep depending on how in-depth you want to take the game. Changing into certain character classes can be complicated, and the leveling curve can be unforgiving at times.
Without spoiling anything, the storyline is pretty much your standard JRPG story with a few curve balls thrown in.
The Last Remnant offers a unique take on the classic turned-based JRPG battle systems. Instead of controlling a party of characters, you are put in charge of teams of characters; as large as 15 or even more.
Although the graphics can be nice, there is quite a bit of pop-in (due to the Unreal engine) and several of the animations can look stiff. Some people have stumbled upon a few glitches in the game, but I haven't found any yet.
I also own this game on the Xbox 360 and the PC version is superior in every way: better performance, more content, more customization. The only negative I can think of about the port is that the developer didn't really update the UI for the PC, and Xbox controller buttons can sometimes pop up during gameplay. This doesn't really bother me because I use an Xbox controller to play anyway.
Overall, The Last Remant is a fun, and sometimes complicated, JRPG for the PC.
A good RPG experience nonethelessOblaque | July 30, 2013 | See all Oblaque's reviews »
It was a very good game, although there are some little complications and a so so storyline and dialogs, well the game play makes up for that. What hit me the most was how the music blended in with each scene or map, the music was one of the best in RPG games, most games from Square Enix have good music though.
