Nippon Ichi’s newly released PS3 RPG “Last Rebellion” has already been awarded the dubious honour of “Worst Game of 2010” candidacy.
Even just looking at its gorgeous PSP-level graphics probably does do the game justice:
The entire game is dubbed exclusively in English (the Japanese version is subtitled in Japanese), as Nippon Ichi intends to unleash the game on the rest of the world in February and March.
Possibly the game is intended to do well overseas as an “anime RPG,” explaining the reliance on English dubbing (which Japanese users complained was unnatural, coupled with the Japanese dialogue at least).
Players report poor acting, bad graphics, usability problems, bad map design, a substandard battle system and a lack of balance. Just about everything, in fact.
A Nippon Ichi employee reportedly bragged that the game could sell a million copies.
For the sake of Japan’s gaming industry, it would probably be best if no further games vied for the title this year.
