The Last Remnant Review: Strategically Sound, Technically Flawed

East meets West as Square Enix releases The Last Remnant, their first attempt at creating a role-playing experience with both Japanese and Western audiences in mind.

The game follows the adventure of Rush Sykes, a small-village boy who gets thrust into global intrigue after his sister is kidnapped by a sinister man in a flying golden machine. It features a unique union-based battle system that supports large-scale encounters, a cast of memorable characters, and an antagonist easily as powerful as Square Enix’s more famous villains, if not quite as pretty. The whole thing is powered by Epic’s Unreal Engine 3, marking the first time that Square has reached outside of their own toolbox to develop a title.

So how did their first stab at a globe-pleasing RPG pan out? Read on and find out.
