The Last Story is superior to FFXIII-2 in almost every way | Cubed3 Review

With only Final Fantasy XIII-2 as The Last Story's main competition here in Europe right now, gamers should definitely be looking to snap this up instead as it proves to be far superior in almost every category. Hironobu Sakaguchi can safely say his latest creation surpasses his first ever. (The Last Story, Wii) 9/10

Good to hear. Much better than that review that called it a poor man's Final Fantasy. Stoked.

I search for the reviews that mirror how I feel about something too!

Not really an achievement ...
GamingTruth  +   1367d ago
especially when its an untrue achievement which isnt really true at all

Needless comparisons in the title cheapen the review for me. Trying to hard.

Not really an achievement now is it? I'm just sayin, it ain't sayin much.

Sadly it's not. Final Fantasy has fallen pretty damn hard. Shame...used to be my favorite series.

Pretty sensationalized title in order to get hits. Even if this is true, would it honestly surprise someone that the creator of Final Fantasy makes RPG's better than his team of successors?

I just hate to see when good devs end up making an exclusive game for the Wii. Would have really liked to have seen this one on 360 or ps3. I just dislike my non-hd muddy graphics wii too much to even get games on it anymore.

So the Wii shouldnt get games anymore because it isn't HD. Nice logic.

My logic is that I, not "everyone", dont like playing games on the Wii simply because they would undoubtedly look better on other systems and often control better as well.

The wii obviously has some great games, but I think most of them would fare better on the other systems graphically. Imagine what the last Zelda (as pretty as it may be) could have looked like if the Wii was a little more powerful. We may have had a Zelda thats much closer in appearance to the WiiU Zelda demo.

so people complain that 'teh wii has no gamez!'

and then when it does have games, people now question as to why the hell games are on this platform.

i guess nintendo are simply in a lose-lose situation with you guys huh?
TheDivine  +   1367d ago
I agree kind of. I would of loved this on the 360 in beautiful hd graphics but every console needs its exclusives. The Last Story, Xenoblade, and Zelda SS are 3 reasons for anyone who skipped out on the wii to go buy one for dirt cheap and enjoy these epic games. Wii fans deserve some killer titles too, theyre gamers also.

Im really hoping Sakaguchi finds a home at nintendo after ms let (imo) the most brilliant jrpg maker on the planet get away. The 3ds would be perfect for his jrpgs (maybe Last Story 2) and the wii-u would be killer also.

Being superior to Final Fantasy 13 is not really that much of an achievement. With that said could you expect anything less from Nintendo Wii exclusive The Last Story?

When a person purchases a Nintendo console, it has already been driven into their mind that games like The Last Story would appear. Nintendo makes games with high standards and we expected nothing less.

Next up is the critically acclaimed Xenoblade which was already scored to near perfection by IGN.com and deemed as the greatest JRPG of this generation.


Only found on the Nintendo Wii.

Rated E for Everyone

no offense but praise from ign means basically nothing these days..........

greatest anything of the gen is just opinion

xenoblade is wonderful though and the wii certainly has nice rpgs, beyond the 3 people only want to talk about

general kaos, plz stfu, seriously ur disgusting, ur love for nintendo is ridiculous, they are a good company but they arent god.

when i think nintendo i think mario link and zelda, maybe some fire emblem, nintendo didnt make last story its just exclusive, what ur saying is like saying that since the ps2 was awesome it made sense that games like kingdom hearts came out. seriously, they are third party games.

last story is great yes, as are other wii games but the way u talk about nintendo i think even miyamoto would be creeped out
Knight_Cid  +   1368d ago
last story is great but theres some other mistwalker games I like better
camel_toad  +   1367d ago
I loved Lost Odyssey.
Knight_Cid  +   1367d ago
I was really thinking about ash archiac and the blue dragon trilogy
phantomexe  +   1367d ago
Same i wish jrpg would take a step back and look at what made them great.
Optical_Matrix  +   1367d ago
After Lost Odyssey, I have faith Mistwalker can deliver. My copy arrived at my University residence while I was back home this weekend so I'll go and pick it up from the parcel office tomorrow.

Saw it being played at Hyper Japan though and hot damn, it looks fantastic.

That doesn't surprise me in the slightest.
Chrono  +   1367d ago
Final Fantasy is not good anymore.
NeoTribe  +   1367d ago
Pretty crappy game to compare it to. Like saying bf3 is superior to duke nukem forever! Can u believe it !?
Hicken  +   1367d ago
Not a very objective conclusion, but rather a title written for the sole purpose of garnering attention.

It's perfectly possible to say that The Last Story is a superb game without comparing it to XIII-2, which it seems to have very little in common with, in any case.
GupX19A  +   1367d ago
I completely agree with you.
Run_bare  +   1367d ago
I hear a lot of good things about The Last Story, I just wish Sakaguchi develop it for PS3.

The other one is Xenoblade. I love the Xenosaga series on PS2, they should continue that for PS3.
LoaMcLoa  +   1367d ago
Or you could just buy a Wii.
Run_bare  +   1366d ago
I did, but I gave them away cause the game I really wanted did not arrive in Western Shore which was Project Zero Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.
TheMutator  +   1367d ago
even Beyond of the Beyond is better than FF XIII and XIII-2
