It's tough really to find a place to start with this review.
I will start by saying aside from the RTS kit graphics this is by far the best rpg maker made game I have ever played.
It captures a lot of what was good about Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger on the SNES. (It actually has some semi references to those games as well).
The combat system is not too fancy but the mechanics behind it are pretty well done. Status Effects and Conditions are really big in Last Dream you really have to pay attention to what is going on it's not your typical keep spamming attack type jrpg if you do this you will likely die.
Leveling up you choose where to put your points in terms of stats and you choose which skills to unlock as well.
If you are a fan of puzzles you definetely want this game some of them have had me banging my head on the keyboard for 30 minutes or higher.
I do not really want to go in to too much detail because I feel it might spoil some of the best aspects of this game.
I will end this by saying forget the fact it's made with rpg maker, forget that it's rts graphics. If you want to re-live your childhood with some old school jrpg feel this game is where it's at. A LOT of content, TONS of sidequest and cutscenes (which can be disabled). New game plus, reborn mode, Diffuculty level for those who like a challenge (can be changed anytime).
