Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


When you hear someone talking about JRPGs, you?ll think of Final Fantasy but more precisely, Final Fantasy VII (FFVII). Hate it or love it, you just have to admire what Final Fantasy VII did for the genre. It?s no surprise Square was going to release...

Without the annoyances and one feature in particular, Crisis Core could've been great.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


Seeing that Final Fantasy: VII is generally regarded as one of the greatest games of all time, it's not surprising that devlopers Square Enix can't stop themselves from relentlessly diving back into the story from every angle possible. But with a CGI...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Review


Final Fantasy VII returns to us once again with Crisis Core, a pocket sized prequel to the 1997 classic...

Great Story ; Innovative combat system ; It does the FFVII saga proud

The DMW system may frustrate some gamers ; Excessive cut-scenes that can't be skipped ; Save points that are infrequent at times

For any fan of the Final Fantasy games, or Japanese RPGs in general, Crisis Core is a must play purely for how well the story is crafted. Square Enix has been bold with the game's combat system, integrating some original features that gamers will...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


Like so many of the games that have rounded out the world of Final Fantasy VII, Crisis Core is a prequel to the classic PSone RPG. Much like the cell phone game that captivated Japan, Crisis Core is a game that tells the story before the story we all...

Action RPG battle system works and captures the essence, if not the gameplay, of the original title ; A visually stunning PSP title, a showpiece ; A satisfying prequel that fills in a lot of backstory for several key characters, especially Sephiroth

Terrible game camera ; Leveling up is too random ; Side-missions feel nonessential to the rest of the game

Crisis Core probable won't make most people stop wishing for a true sequel to Final Fantasy VII that retains the classic turn-based battle system and follows up on the post-FFVII events in the lives of the surviving heroes from that game. But in the...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (PSP)


From opening to close, every note in this game plays well, and anyone that owns a PSP, even if not a fan of RPGs or Final Fantasy, should give Crisis Core a chance.

Tremendous sound; great gameplay; amazing story

The DMW system leaves something to be desired; active battle system may not be for everyone

Crisis of Conscience


Is Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII awesome because of nostalgia, or awesome because it's just good? Either way, it's plain awesome.

Absolutely stunning in every way. The models are emotive to a level no handheld game has ever been able to accomplish (and may not for years to come), the CG is insanely gorgeous, and the overall presentation is fantastic.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


Final Fantasy VII has been overhyped and played-out. Included are Before Crisis, which never came to the Americas; Advent Children, which made little to no sense; Last Order, which told nothing anyone who had played the game didn't already know; Dirge...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Review


For four years, Square-Enix have teased us with one of the most eagerly anticipated games across any console. It's been almost exactly four years since Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII was announced, and it took over three of those years for the game to...

nbspIn the end, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII lives up to my personal expectations. It is precisely what I had imagined it to be, an addictive Action-RPG that ties up loose ends from the Final Fantasy VII past. It plays like a dream, blurring the...

Product Specifications

The Shinra Company is rapidly increasing its influence through its monopoly on mako energy and military might. With the burgeoning city of Midgar as its base and symbol of prosperity, Shinra is on the verge of establishing absolute dominance over the world. SOLDIER is a group of skilled combat operatives within Shinra. The elite within the group - those strong enough to be deemed SOLDIER 1st Class - are respected and idolized by the citizenry. Zack is a young SOLDIER 2nd Class who aspires to become a 1st. He spends his days carrying out assignments under the guidance of his 1st Class mentor, Angeal. During an operation in Wutai, a large number of SOLDIER members, led by 1st Class operative Genesis, go missing. The severity of the situation prompts Shinra executives to deploy even more SOLDIER operatives in hopes of bringing an end to the war with Wutai - and conducting an investigation into the mass desertion. The ones assigned to the mission are Zack, Angeal, and the 1st Class hero who is known the world over as Sephiroth...
