Filled with that glorious old-school arcade feel, this game amps up the classics that made the turn-based combat genre what it is today. The Last Spell is lengthy (with 60-80 hours of content), and full of detail-heavy combat that will leave magic and strategy fans highly satisfied. It's tricky, and clearly set up to encourage users to fail – but moreso, to learn from those failures and continue in their quest to bring down enemies. Despite this, several difficulty levels exist to accommodate players who are interested in the plot, but who may not have the combat experience to enjoy the game's trials.

At the end of the day, The Last Spell will be a difficult game for younger players who are unfamiliar with this genre. Understanding the game from the beginning is difficult enough to thwart players who are looking to be drawn in immediately. That's not to say that it isn't a good game – and it certainly is, visually, technically, and creatively. Whether or not The Last Spell is a good fit will depend almost entirely on the player's experience and ability to be patient while working through the trial and error process. But, players who are willing to face the challenge head-on will almost certainly have a blast! Full of dynamic visuals, advanced skill set and point systems, and a straightforward plot, there's tons of fun to be had here. With an adrenaline-pumping instrumental hard-rock soundtrack guaranteed to keep your energy up, The Last Spell promises intensity and consistently delivers.
