Just picked it up. Really nice limited edition packaging,Love the color scheme. Also came with a brief soundtrack not included in the actual packaging. The battle system looks like a lot of fun. I am just worried with how generic the story sounds. Multi player sounds interesting.
Yeah, the story isn't all that great, but the game scores higher in the character department. They don't get a lot of development, but the banter between the mercenaries is frequent and entertaining. The battle system is easily the best part of the game. Which is good, because you'll be fighting A LOT.
The game is also only 20-30 hours long and doesn't overstay its welcome.
I have no problem with hearing good things here then picking it up. But between school, work, other games, and a skill I want to improve that isn't thumb twiddling on controllers... I guess I only have time for so much. As is, Xenoblade is collecting mad dust as much as I want to play it.
If you're going to play a Wii RPG, play Xenoblade. The Last Story is a nice game, but everything it does, Xenoblade does better.
