ScrewAttack: "It's not that The Last Story has good ideas that aren't done well, it's that The Last Story doesn't have any good ideas. It attempts to sling a veil of strategic combat on top of a button-mashy mess with little depth. New abilities are gained few and far between and do nothing to keep you engaged in the constant fighting. The story is drab, the characters, while beautiful, are cardboard cutouts of characters we've all seen before. Could have it been something more? Possibly, if given more time or maybe a stronger system. But what is here isn't very good, it isn't very fun, and it isn't worth creating an online campaign to bring stateside."
