Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Embroiled in seemingly endless conflict, the Empire has been slowly weakened by the relentless onslaught of enemy forces. Despite the debilitated state of the mainland, however, a virtually impenetrable last line of defense stands proud and keeps hope alive for all the land. That beacon of hope is Lazulis Island, ruled by the renowned Count Arganan. With the employment of an army of weapons that magically - and mysteriously- concentrates beasts into a single region, his island has become a small wonder for its powers. Among those coming to the island to seek their fortune is Zael, a young man who at an early age was orphaned when his homeland became one of the many victims of battle. Though he and his band of fellow mercenaries often face disdain and fear as they are perceived to be of a lower class, they manage to catch the eye of none other than Count Arganan himself. If they can successfully complete the tasks put before them by the Count, they may have a rare chance to gain the most honorable status that they have only dreamed of - knighthood. It is during one of these missions bestowed upon them that Zael discovers a hidden site, one which grants him a wondrous and yet familiar power to gather his enemies in one place. The Last Story marks the reunion of two luminaries that helped shape the RPG genre; legendary creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, and internationally-recognized composer Nobuo Uematsu. The genre is advanced with an innovative real-time combat system involving strategic party-based commands that include taking cover from enemy fire, destroying environments to gain a tactical advantage, and drawing fire away from your allies to give them time to cast powerful support spells. Once the battle system is mastered, players can test their skills online where co-op and versus mode for up to 6 players can net special rare items.

4.0 out of 5 stars One h*ll of a suprise Oct. 9 2012
By Chris
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a huge fan of JRPGs, have been for a solid 15 years. Lately though, I've been getting disappointed a lot over the past four or five years. I ended up purchasing The Last Story on a whim, my sister being a huge advocate of the "Operation Rainfall" fan movement that brought this game over to the NA region. Me wanting Pandora's Tower for so long, I knew of this game, but little else.

I was quite pleasantly surprised, needless to say. The combat system is very simple, and emphasizes tactical movement and fast decision making. Any JRPG where I actually enjoy getting into battles has clearly done something right. It's difficult to actually describe and do it justice, as it's so different from the action-based combat systems I'm used to. While a little jarring at first, within the first hour a person can get pretty comfortable with it.

Being the game is for the Wii, the graphics aren't anything to write home about. In comparison to other Wii games however, they are very good. The use of bloom and atmospheric lighting is very well done. Walking around the main city during the night parts, one can't help but feel the creators did the game a disservice by making it for Wii- this would have been gorgeous in HD! That's just my personal opinion though.

The music is standard FF-esque Nobuo Uematsu affair. At this point, I think it's expected to be good and full of life. After a while it can get a little repetitive though, especially the battle music. The calmer tracks are so pleasant to listen to though, enough for me to want the soundtrack.

But really, what any RPG comes down to is the storyline, and this is where I was most impressed.

2.0 out of 5 stars I did not like this all that much Nov. 24 2013

I liked the battle system at first but it got boring quick and the story was really crummy. And i know it's on the nintendo wii and i know graphics aren't everything but the graphics were not very good i would not say they were terrible but they were bad especially in the year 2012 when this game was made so in my opinion i would save your money and time on something better.

From a creator of the FF franchise, it is as we expect, a bit linear, but it is still a great game!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW Awesome Game Jan. 17 2014
By Lea
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was one of the best I played on the wii. At first it's kinda hard to get used to the fighting control since I'm use to ex: Zelda one where you move the wii controler to fight with your sword, wich is not the case in the Last Story. The gameplay is pretty good and not toooo cheesy. I also really liked all the magic tricks that we could do. The graphics aren't the best but I won't lower the game only for that since the scene and decor were still pretty nice. The customations you can do to your characters are also really nice and the side quests are really fun and helps you to collect some stuff like your health or your groups agility, + it's nice how you can upgrade your sword and your equipments !!!
