RPGamer writes: "Although it is riddled with annoyances and oversights throughout, The Last Remnant is an addictive game. Battles require much more strategy than the usual rock-paper-scissors approach that is so closely tied to turn-based JRPGs. The story and characters, while not consistent, are polished and provide an interesting backdrop to an excellent battle system. The learning curve, high difficulty and heavy reliance on luck that persist throughout the game require quite a bit of patience in order to get the most out of the experience. For those able to muscle through, however, the addictive battle system and 50+ hours of available story show that there is quite a bit to love here. For those on the fence, an English Demo is readily available to help you decide if it's worth the $40.00 price of admission".
