The Last Story review [Nintendo Universe]

Nintendo Universe writes:

Though some denounce the Japanese role-playing genre as having fallen from grace, The Last Story stands tall as a shining beacon that exemplifies the very best of what it can achieve.

A heartwarming tale of love, friendship and betrayal proves a resoundingly storytelling experience, accompanied by an inventive battle system that is as accessible as it is immersive to behold. One can only hope that The Last Story won’t indeed be Mistwalker or Hironobu Sakaguchi’s last to grace a Nintendo platform, as the craftsmanship on display here will be sorely missed. (The Last Story, Wii) 9/10

No real gamer says japanese rpgs have fallen from grace. Most see they are the only rpgs worth playing, as they are the most original, and have real whimsy and soul

i think the stupidest thing anyone can do is define a genre or subgenre by where the game was made. Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2, Witcher etc... are some of the best RPGs you will ever play. the last of us looks awesome, and is definately heavily inspired by the mmorpgs found on pc. One thing i will agree on though, games found on xbox are often intentionally dumbed down greatly because publishers think xbox gamers are dumbasses.

Hmm...so by your logic real gamers must love rpgs from the east and ignore the others from the western market.
