This is a game that harkens back to the classic days of the SNES and original PlayStation. It is not fancy, it does not break new ground or thrill you with sparkly graphics. What it does do is tell a solidly written story with an intuitive and easy to use combat system. In these days of games with more flash and sizzle than substance this game is a polished, workmanlike affair. If you want an exotic feast of a game this is not for you, but if you are looking for a comfortable meat and potatoes game that satisfies without overwhelming please give Mistwalker Studios a chance.
I liked the combat system and the story line was pretty good, but it was mostly cutscenes which drove me crazy! I loved the characters! Except for Calysta whom I wanted to push off of any hights that we found ourselves on :P All in all, I'm glad I ordered it.
All the other games from Gamefly have operated without any problems. This game ,The Last Story, doesn't play. I have consultated my WII manual and could not find a problem with my machine. I have no idea what the problem is, but it is not my machine. I had just finished playing Harry Potter Leggo and it gave me no problems. I really enjoy the service provided by Gamefly and look forward to many more games in the future.
