The long awaited Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is out! Was it worth four years?

If you have played previous Crystal Chornicles games, you will find a different game waiting for you here. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers moves away from multiplayer RPG and focuses on single player adventure.


Compare and Contrast

Like other Final Fantasy games, there is a huge world for you to explore in Crystal Bearers. As well, there is a rich story, impressive graphics, and epic battles to amaze you. However, unlike other Final Fantasy games, side quests and equipment seem mostly unimportant. This is because most fighting is action-based. You do not hit people with a giant sword, but instead run around and pick things up to throw for damage. This means that actual gaming skill is more important than good items. Still, there are some interesting aspects of the equipment system, such as miracle gems.


Goods and Bads

Crystal Bearers is a pretty easy game, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on your tastes. There is no penalty for failing anything and there are lots of auto-save points in the game to help you on your quest.


The biggest complaint has to be with the camera, which is controled with the D-pad on the Wiimote. This awkward location makes it hard to do things like platform jumping and can get pretty frustrating, especially if you have small hands.


The mini-games in Crystal Bearers are pretty cool and fun, but do not really add to the story much. Like everything else in the game, you cannot fail these. You do get a score, but you will not get anything special for having a good score.


Bearable or Unbearable?

Overall Crystal Chronicles is a decent game. The start of the game is particularly fun, with a great shooting mini-game. Though enjoyable for the most parts, some of the frustrating things about the game, such as the camera and repetitive combat, will make the experience a little less fun.

    I really agree with --Kat-- when she says she's bored of seeing "First to #" and "Last one to say "Etc" wins" threads. She decided to make a thread about Boys vs Girls thread which is pretty smart! So here it is, a game where different continents have to say a country from their Continent. You keep going until someone repeats a country someone had already said, then they're out. Who's gonna be the last one standing? Rules: -Please don't post more than one country per person because it gives less chances for other people in your Continent to post a country. -Don't post unnecessary things, stay on the game's subject. -This is only for fun. The winning Continent, please don't boast to other people. In America, States can be said as a country as well. That's it, have fun!
