Eurogamer Sweden- "If this is Sakaguchis final fantasy, it would be very sad, since it is only in that he seems to have found quite back to his top form. It's a nifty, emotional story that is told in a fast pace with strong (albeit partially archetypal) character, moral doubts and delivered with precision.
The biggest problem with The Last Story? Too few will bother to play it. As with Xenoblade Chronicles is released it to a dying platform, much too late."
