Last Remnant is the first game from Square Enix that uses the Unreal 3 game engine. Originally released on Xbox 360, it is now coming to PC gamers. Overall the game appears to be solid, allowing us PC users to experience some good RPG action from one of the premier RPG designers.
The Last Remnant, the latest new IP developed by Square Enix, attempts to up the ante of previous Square turn-based titles by cranking up the scale of the combat which, in turn, leads to one pretty epic story. Not that other Square titles don’t already have epic stories, the Final Fantasy series have some of my all time favorites, but The last Remnant’s combat just seems to be contagious with everything else in the title: graphically, sound design and the game’s epic story. So now, with one of the game being such a large input into its other parts, the last remaining question is how good is the gameplay?
