Forums - Microsoft Discussion - IGN Reviews Last Remnant; Ouch

5.0 Presentation
Unfriendly and disjointed, anybody new to the RPG genre will find themselves quickly confused.

5.5 Graphics
Some of the backgrounds look awesome. And sometimes the game moves like a slideshow.

6.5 Sound
A mixed bag of nice orchestral music and sorely limited voice acting.

5.0 Gameplay
Confusing game progression and limited role-playing. The union system has promise but isn't fully fleshed out.

5.5 Lasting Appeal
There is a lot of gameplay here. Most people won't make it through all of it.

Mediocre OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average)


Anybody here play it? If so, how is it? 

GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.

Wow, S-E is really hitting some new lows

"Dr. Tenma, according to you, lives are equal. That's why I live today. But you must have realised it by now...the only thing people are equal in is death"---Johann Liebert (MONSTER)

"WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives"---Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler

It cant be that bad, can it?

"The accumulated filth of all their sex and murders will foam up about their waist and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

 ....and I'll look down and whisper  "no."

Wow, talk about a terrible rating, especially from ign.


Reader's Average is 8.1

Rent it first and judge it yourself. This generation there has been no love for JRPG for some reason.

Castlevania Judgment FC:     1161 - 3389 - 1512

3DS Friend Code:   3480-2746-6289

Wii Friend Code: 4268-9719-1932-3069

Japanese RPGs are in such a depressing state right now, at least on home consoles.



Very amusing times. Good to see that that a company that is blaming consumers for the sinking market is real responsible by releasing bad games.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

Fullfilled Prophecies

Oh wow,

I was expecting 6.5 - 8.0 from IGN, but not this low. It seems when IGN is harsh, they're really harsh.

TLR could end up with a lower Metacritic/Gamerankings score then Infinite Undiscovery....who saw that coming?

I'm leaning more towards just waiting for a PC/PS3 release and hope that SE fixes some of these issues by the time it hits the PS3. It's not like there is a lack of quality games out there, so I can wait.
