Horrible

The Last Story Is A Real Sleeper...

I tell you what, I put this game in my Wii drive, and it put me to sleep no longer than 2 hours of gameplay. Where did it go wrong? Let's start with the boring controls. You don't attack, you just run up to an enemy and it attacks for you. Simple enough, right? Well each character gets five lives, so if you have been playing RPGs these past 10 years, you will not die, ever.

Gameplay:

Boring, but better gameplay than NMH 1 & 2.

Voice Acting:

Atrocious. XSEED didn't take the time to change the PAL voices to USA voices. What this means is that when it was localized, they pretty much just ported it over from the UK version, doing absolutely nothing different. This game came out six months ago in the UK, they've had six months to make changes to this game to localize it in the US.

The voices don't follow the lips. It's like watching the old Godzilla movies in English. What's worse? It's poorly translated. Japanese people don't call their moms 'Mummy'. The acting is terrible in general, not just the voices, but the characters.

The fact that you can speed through the annoying cutscenes of everyone by holding A (A does everything in this game) is great, because even after doing so, the game is still utterly boring.

BGM Arrangement:

The only thing this game has going for it, the music.

Multiplayer:

Pretty boring. I can think of a few other wii games that have more interesting multiplayer than this one. Honestly, I'd rather spend my time playing those games instead.

First off, my attack is automatic? That ruins a lot of the fun. Second, the controls. Third, boring.

Aside from The Last Story I had only played Skyward Sword on the Wii. I had read some mixed reviews of the game early on and when I got a Game fly account this was actually the first game I rented.
It did not disappoint. Sure the visuals were a little fuzzy but the action was fast paced and the story kept me entertained the whole way through. I hope to see more games similar to this one in the future. Probably won't be seeing any sequels, but then again look at Final Fantasy.
