The Last Remnant is an oft-overlooked gem from the Xbox 360 era of JRPGs. It had its problems when it first came out, but the recently released remastering fixed a lot of them. And right now you can pick it up from the App Store for the cheapest its been in a good long while.
The game features a really intriguing battle system that mixes together elements from a load of other Square Enix classics into something fresh and exciting. You need to think about the morale of your team, and use your commands smartly to take down your foes.
Some of those foes are absolutely massive. There’s a scope to The Last Remnant – not just in terms of the boss battles – that’s definitely going to leave you breathless. Oh, and the soundtrack is pretty darn awesome too.
And on top of – or around of – all that, there’s an amazing story too. It revolves around four different races – some of whom look like cats – and an endless war over fabled objects called Remnants. Basically there’s about a week’s worth of game here, and it’s all really good.
