Does the game get better?
Played it for half an hour, seems like a mediocre JRPG that's poorly optimized for PC, unsatisfing combat, and horrid writing.

Yes it does, the story gets better but the combat system just gets more complicated :/

Its not poorly optimized, you just have to change the settings to make it pc controls

Poorly optimized? You mean the graphics??

Looks like you've only played half an hour. You're still in tutorial mode at that point!

I've got it for the xbox, it does get a bit better in terms of combat. The story isn't that great, imo. I'd say it takes a good 6-10 hours for combat to start get really interesting, and it becomes pretty challanging about 15-30 hours in, depending on your skill, and you'll likely keep playing just for the fights if you make it that far

Depends what you define by "better", everyone has their own taste.

This game is similar to Final Fantasy XII, if you do not choose to do any / many side-quests or extra activities you can easily finish this game in under 6 - 8 hours.

However with that being said if do decide to invest time in this game and learn its mechanics, obtain leaders / union members, optimize your unions (parties), defeat optional bosses and other activties this can take you anywhere to a hundred hours (or even more!).

It's a game where you are in charge of your own union's strength:
  • How you decide to build them
  • What sort of formations you like to employ
  • Angle of tackling an enemy

It is definitely not a game for everyone, but for me personally 3 dollars for this game is way better than other titles I have bought for 30 dollars and put only 1 hour into.

This goes back to my first statement, it really depends on you.

I would say combat is more complicated at the start, until you get used to it. I STRONGLY recomend to turnn off turbo mode until you know what is going on.

Is it only like XII from the story side, or is the gameplay similar? It looks like FF 13 to mein the videos I see. XII doesn'tahve battle screens, and all those flashing numbers are exactly like XIII has. Big difference to me between the two games so I really want to know. XII is my favorite FF for gameplay by a wide margin.

Dude, it's a strategy game. You played HALF AN HOUR of it. 'nuff said.

It's Still better than FF13.

I like the characters in FF13, but the game itself is such a drag.

Civilization is a strategy game. Warcraft is a strategy game. Magic the Gathering is a strategy game.

The Last Remnant is a RPG.

Hardly. It has more strategic elements to it than anything else. Next you're going to say that Fire Emblem is also not a strategy game.

According to wikipedia, The Last Remnant is a RPG, while Civilization is a turn based strategy and Warcraft is a real time strategy. Can you not differentiate genres or something?

I would say Fire Emblem and FFT are examples of tactical RPGs, a middle ground between the genres.

Whatever you say, buddy. You played more of Last Remnant yet?
