The Last Remnant | Game Review
The first things thatíll strike you about The Last Remnant, after its perplexingly long install process on Steam has completed, is that the menu system is a confusing mess. All the information is there, but navigating is a pain in the posterior. We even resorted to plugging in an Xbox 360 pad, which promptly failed to work. Finally we found all the options we wanted and there was an intriguing nugget hidden away in the clutter: you can play this JRPG in Japanese with English subtitles.
Sadly, the game never really manages to be anything other than average, even with the speed and graphical improvements made since the console version. Even though Remnant is powered by Epicís Unreal Engine 3, it looks ropey. Now, weíre not saying that graphics mean that much, but when the gameplay canít make up for a lack of flair in the visuals, youíre in trouble. The root cause of the problem is that the combat is just plain dull. Itís also both baffling and very simplistic at the same time.
Numerous other problems with The Last Remnant include unskippable cutscenes, confusing union creation systems, dreary locations, an auto save slot that doesnít get used, awful music, no voices outside of cutscenes, to name but a few.
