This is one of the Best game i had ever played! I'm an Final Fantasy person and this is truly amazing game. This game is the complete storyline which you are the character in the story and what is even more you're responsible for the team to make sure they're in part of the story as well. Love this and would love to purchase this if i have the money to do it.

Dust off your Wii one last time, the Last Story is the last great game for the Wii. From the original creator of Final Fantasy, its got a lot of what you expect in a JRPG, but with also some new interesting features. Not everything works perfectly, the combat can be annoying, but the story and the characters will keep you interested until the end. Visually, this is about the best the Wii can do. Its not high def, and the colors can get muddy, but there are lot of little touches that you will notice in the environment and the models look good. Music is well done (original Final Fantasy composer too) and the British voice actors are charming. Its nice to hear a different set of voice actors from the usual ones we get in the US. There are alot of little complaints, but not enough to make it a big deal. Get the game if you love JRPGs.

Excellent

An Underrated Hit

I found this game while just looking through the list of games, renting it for the heck of it and not expecting much out of it. Days later, I was asking my parents if I can purchase it. This game was different from most RPGs in the way it cleverly blends the dungeons and battlefields into each level, giving you near-complete freedom to roam around even during a battle. The game featured an auto-attack function, but it is possible to switch it to manual if it doesn't suit your liking. The characters featured in the game were very well developed in terms of personality and backstory, and the storyline was brilliant and naturally flowed with little gaps or overlaps. That's what I personally look for in a game. The overall story and gameplay was enjoyable, so I was disappointed when it ended, but [spoiler] was pleased to find you can replay the story on a different file with everything you had gained from the last play through, including weapons, powers, and level gains, and the difficulty being increased. [spoiler end.] Of course, this game, like all games, has notable flaws. The animations were a little stag, with both movements and character mouth movement poorly done. Also, the game could have had more open world capability and more warning before a new mission starts. Also, there could have been an optional feature of replaying specific chapters, escalating from simply revisiting dungeons. The multiplayer was good, giving you the option to even play as NPCs, which was fun. Overall, the game was a great variation for its genre and highly recommended by me. I also recommend Xseed to make a sequel.
