The Last Remnant Remastered (PS4) Review | GamePitt

Rob Pitt writes: This year has been amazing for fans of last generation’s popular RPG games. The year opened with a great remaster of Star Ocean: The Last hope, brilliantly brought to us in resolutions up to a full 2160p at 60 frames per second. A few weeks ago I had the honour of playing and reviewing Resonance of Fate, yet another brilliantly remastered game from tri-Ace with all the same settings and features as Star Ocean.

Now, Square Enix has pulled The Last Remnant from the Xbox and Steam stores in order to give us The Last Remnant Remastered as a (currently) PlayStation 4 exclusive!

Y'know, I'm really digging it.

I'll admit the beginning portion had me rolling my eyes, but the characters grow on you. I am following a guide though because I read up that over-leveling in this game can make bosses too tough, but I've also heard that's fixed for this version of the game. Anyways, if you're interested you should really check it out.

Yeah, I loved it back on the 360 and even more when it came to PC a few years back. This version is even better with it's newly updated textures and visual quality along with the run button - such a simple mechanic which makes getting around so much easier!

The voices are a bit cringe-worthy still though. I had completely forgotten about the 'English accents' they try and pull off. Regarding the difficulty, that's probably why I kept getting slaughtered when I originally played it? I would always get so far and then become far too weak to take on anyone. I'm kind of surprised Square Enix didn't put in a 'cheat' option as they did in their FF remasters, but I'm glad they didn't.

If you like this game though, I highly recommend Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Resonance of Fate, both are awesome PS4 remasters and quite cheap. Resonance has an unusual combat mechanic which is a bit like Valkyria Chronicles, but they are both brilliant remasters from tri-Ace as they both ran on their custom engine.
