The Last Story Review: Deconstructing Fantasy Heroes

 

A lively cast brings one of Hironobu Sakaguchi's finest fantasies to the Wii.

20 hours seems like a ridiculously short amount of time, especially when it comes to caring about someone. Making a friend or falling in love takes much longer than that. 20 hours is nothing compared to the length of a life; yet games, at times, can...

The Last Story

 

In a world ravaged by war and conflict, the story follows Zael and his friends as a swords-for-hire mercenary group, solving problems that would otherwise go unsolved. Business is as usual for them until they get mixed up in something bigger than they...

I sure hope it isn't his Last Story!

A JRPG that's hugely innovative; Emotionally affecting characters; Amazing ending; Did I mention innovative?; Fantastic gameplay; Fine-tuned controls

Chugs on Wii hardware; Minor camera issues

There might be a tiny bit of a joke in the name The Last Story. Early in his career, Hironobu Sakaguchi was fed up with game design and decided to quit. He went to his boss and asked to do one last game before he left. That game was the original Final...

Review: The Last Story for Nintendo Wii - GamerTell

 

Great use of character and story, innovative and engaging battle system, solid graphics, fantastic music, proper use of sidequests, manages to avoid some annoying JRPG tropes

Camera placement can interfere with battle, auto-attack can’t tell when you’re retreating, no sidequest journal

The Last Story

 

Many complain over the staleness of genres in gaming, especially the now more generic first person shooters. Role playing games are suffering a

By the end it can be hard to care, even if the plot is far more interesting. Couple the mediocre story with the less than fulfilling gameplay, and you have an experience that drags to begin with in both story and gameplay, discouraging you from...

The Last Story Review

 

The Last Story is a brilliant role-playing game that's as rich and emotionally affecting as the best in the genre.

Rich narrative with characters you actually care about ; Innovative and fast-paced battle system ; Beautiful visuals push the Wii to its limits ; Heaps of side quests ; Great localization

Minor frame rate issues

Despite being set in a single city, there are still a wide variety of quests. One moment, you're fighting off hordes of enemies in Lazulis castle; the next, you're enjoying a quiet drink in Ariela's Tavern before being whisked away to explore musty...

The Last Story Review

 

It's been a long time coming. Does Mistwalker's latest live up to the year-long wait for a localised Western release?

The Last Story has no significant shortcomings apart from a slight lack of verve; it’s not the JRPG revolution that Xenoblade Chronicles was, and its setting and story remain within safe territory, but great characterisation and an excellent,...

Mistwalker's latest finally comes to the states. Was it worth all the hype and petitions? Our full review.

Great characterization ; Deep customization ; Nice character graphics ; Interesting battle system

Unpolished gameplay ; Forgettable soundtrack from a master ; Environments can be very plain looking ; Flawed camera

The Last Story

 

Co-Op is a lot more fun. The same combat from Deathmatch is present, but dying carries a higher penalty. And you can only be revived if another player comes over to you. Each Co-Op fight is in an arena with a powered-up version of one of the game’s...

The Last Story- Wii

 

The Last Story is a glorious homage to the traditional RPG, but with enough modern twists where it matters to offer a compelling reason to dig out your Wii just once more.
