Carl B. of iNintendo.net writes, "I've been tired of JRPGs for years now, especially after playing the filth that was Final Fantasy 13. I haven't been able to get into any JRPG for a long time, whether it is Chrono Trigger or Breath of Fire II. The only exception to this has been Atlus' Radiant Historia – a game that broke the traditional JRPG mold with its ambitious time travel mechanic. Sadly, while Radiant Historia may have sold well on Nintendo DS, it never received the large main stream attention that other recent JRPGs have gotten. There's one game, though, that has re-kindled my faith in the JRPG genre: Nintendo and Mistwalker's The Last Story."
