The Story: Remnants and Rush Sykes
In ancient times mysterious artifacts, referred to as Remnants, were discovered all over the world. Existing in forms as diverse as gems, beasts and even weapons, they were so numerous and their power so great that the civilizations of the world sprang up around them. But as people diverted the power of these objects for their ends they eventually caused a rift in the world's balance. Now, thousands of years later that balance must be corrected, and the story of The Last Remnant begins.

Rush Sykes and his sister Irina are children of scientists researching the esoteric Remnants. One day, Irina is kidnapped right before Rush's eyes. Determined to rescue his sister, Rush joins forces with David Nassau, the marquis of a small city-state called Athlum. Together they are determined to pursue the criminals and save Irina from her strange captors. Meanwhile, the world is thrust into confusion as ruling powers bicker over dividing the Remnants' powers. Soon a mysterious man appears calling himself the Conqueror. His presence escalates tensions as everyone eagerly attempts to answer the question: Into whose hands will the power of the Remnants fall? Before he knows it, Rush becomes wrapped up in this international power struggle and realizes that he is somehow connected to the enigmatic Conqueror.

Combat Systems: Battle Unions, Morale and Deadlock
Battles in The Last Remnant are fought between multiple friendly and enemy unions -- groups of up to five characters who fight together and share resources and goals between them. Players give commands to unions as a whole, which then carry out the actions. Orders in battle are given in a command-select style that is familiar to most role-playing gamers. However, commands in The Last Remnant are not delivered with standard terms, such as "Item" or "Magic." Instead, players control unions with specialized commands, such as "Slam 'em with status ailments!" or "Do area attacks from afar!" Available commands change depending on the current battle situation or the distance and positions of friendly and hostile unions.

The Last Remnant also adds a Morale component to the gameplay. Players can check current morale via the gauge across the top of the screen. The higher the morale, the more damage is dealt and less damage is taken by friendly unions and vice-versa. When friendly and enemy unions go toe-to-toe and engage in melee combat, they enter a state called Deadlock. Once in Deadlock, the two unions must fight each other until one union has been completely destroyed. Enemy monsters roam the land where they can be avoided or engaged at will. When battle is initiated, the scene changes to a specialized battle map where friend and foe can fight it out. Horizontal lined icons labeled A, B, C, etc. represent the on-field battle unions. Players choose which hostile union they wish to attack on this screen. Players will also utilize a wide variety of commands that focus on dealing damage or executing defensive maneuvers. Knowing which commands are most suitable for each situation is the key to winning battles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game - Especially When Tweaked January 10, 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall I enjoyed this game greatly, especially after tweaking it...

PROS:
- The Last Remnant looks GREAT on a high end PC (circa 2008) and plays very smoothly.
- Awesome movie sequences.
- The gameplay can be addictive. If you enjoy leveling in an RPG, you'll find tons of that here (every stat levels as you fight).
- HUGE party size, you've probably never played an RPG with this many NPCs that can join you (there are over 40 of them that are 'unique leaders' and countless others)
- A massive number of quests (especially optional sidequests).
- Battles require some strategy (trying to win every battle with the same formation and attacks will not succeed).
- It's just FUN - between the slick animations and the strategy, these large scale battles are a lot of fun to watch and to play.

CONS (reasons it's not 5 stars):
- The addictive gameplay becomes repetitive gameplay at times.
- Certain game design decisions require you to repeatedly visit an area, just to spawn a special monster (with a random appearance chance), this can be very tedious for those that try to complete 100% of the games sidequests.

CONS YOU CAN REMOVE:
- You cannot equip your NPCs, only your main character (Rush) has editable inventory, but with a change of a line of code in a config file, all characters can be equipped as you see fit.
- With the right trainer (look for a "C# Last Remnant Trainer" on the web) you can change your BR level (which you should read about on the wiki [see below] before you go leveling your party excessively) along with MANY other factors - so the game will not become too difficult nor easy. That's why this game on the PC, when tweaked, can be a LOT of fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous! April 20, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Do yourself a favor and get this on PC. The visuals are absolutely enchanting. Works well with a gamepad or even a 360 controller with PC adapter, if you have one. I play it on my tv whilst sitting on the couch-just as I would, if playing it on the 360. The only difference is the graphics are much much inproved. The textures are very detailed technically and artisticly.
Story-wise the game seems pretty generic. The main kid, is the exact same kid from phantasy star universe and a dozen other JRPGs. The races the game has are very well done asthetically, but bland on personality. Gameplay wise its well done the combat is fast, entertaining as well as challenging.

All in all a respectable JRPG with very pretty graphics.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Last Remnant is meant to be the new forerunner franchise for Square-Enix(most likelly taken FF's crown once the XIII series of games is concluded, but only in theory...) and it gets off to one hell of a start. A lot of people neglected giving this game a chance on the 360 because it had rampent lag issues and texture pop-in throughout the entire game. This does take away from the game somewhat, but with that out the way now, there is nothign preventing this version from making it a strong 9.5 rpg title.

It is heavy on story(even if it gets off to a somewhat slow start) and indeed establishes an interesting universe and premise that SE can easily expand upon in future titles. The whole jist of the game itself is to start to reintroduce the tried-and-true turn-based combat style while also making it appear to be as close to real-time as humanly possible. They do a steller job of creating the most deep and interesting battle system seen in an rpg in a long while. It can involve as many as a couple hundred enemies at points and some battle easily span 30 minutes to an hour of gameplay and, yet, you never get bored. The music plays a large part as it is a huge part of the appeal for me. It is very much like a cross between Final Fantasy symphonics and Castlevania-esque japanese, guitar-laiden, metal riffage that is done with such a perfect flair for the overall feel of the combat. Once you understand the system well enough, you can easily get absorbed in the battles more than almost any rpg I've ever played.

The characters are all interesting enough and well developed as well, including the main hero. Of late, SE seems to have pretty-boyed the protaginists in most of their next-gen rpgs and it has not gone over very well.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I need to say right away the story is as cliched as all of the other Square Enix games. Once again we have a 15 years old boy, who doesnt know his parents, who will lead armies to battle, and who will save the world. Happily, the cut-scenes are completely skippable. I'll be really blunt -- None of the characters in the story are even a little memorable.

The great news is that Square came up with something a little different in this game with the combat engine. You lead armies rather than individual characters into battle. It will be 10 hours before you can create armies with lots of different combat abilities, but once you do, there is some genuine strategic and tactical thought needed to succeed at the battles. It can be fun and challenging to create different types of armies (strong magic or strong melee or a combo of the 2) to fight against a particular type of enemy.

Its important to note that you cannot directly control or directly upgrade your characters, except for the main character. This could be frustrating to same gamers but here I see why Square did it. There are so many characters that handling each one would be tedious and boring.

The graphics are a mixed bag. On the one hand there are genuinely excellent enemy models. And then there are large but bland outdoor areas. The textures repeat a lot in the outdoor areas and there is a notable lack of detail like trees or grass, just lots of cliff walls of differing colors. Over all, the game is stable and runs at a fact clip on my 9xxx Geforce card and nothing special Core Duo 2 PC.

This is turn-based combat and the game is easily 40 hours long, so I urge folks to try the PC demo if you arent sure about the gameplay.
