Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles:The Crystal Bearers Review

 

The latest in the Crystal Chronicles series, this is more of an action/adventure game than a RPG. Be aware.

This game has some missed potential, and I have hopes for a sequel that uses more traditional RPG elements. When you are trying to introduce something new into an established franchise known for its unorthodox gameplay (Crystal Chronicles requiring...

The Crystal Chronicles series has generally enjoyed favourable reviews to date. From the original Gamecube title to the DS instalments, Ring of Fates and Echoes of Time, the series continues to satisfy fans who enjoy an action RPG title bearing the...

Crystal Bearers is a fun game for the short time that it lasts. Though I was very excited about the game, the camera and pacing issues detract from the game's overall appeal with little to no replay value. It's worth a rental for fans of the series but...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers review for the WII

 

My fantasy is that the waggling can stop.

Graphics as pretty as the Wii gets; Controls are easy to grasp

Large, open spaces; Story is a snore; Don't have to battle

Let's just get this out of the way: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers. It's a mouthful, even if I knew where to put the colon. Through the review, for everyone's sanity, I'll generally refer to the game as "The Crystal Bearers,"...

And cows that shoot milk beams from their udders. Naturally.

I'll say this about the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles franchise, Square Enix isn't afraid to radically change them up from game to game. If it wasn't for the package telling me that The Crystal Bearers was part of the series, I would have never...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is full of fantastic ideas, unfortunately it's marred by repetitive gameplay, questionable gameplay decisions, terrible voice acting and unlikeable characters. If you can get over those problems...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers

 

Square Enix has had plenty of time to experiment with the Final Fantasy franchise. Spin-offs, re-imaginings, and tactical games have been explored at great lengths, and now, in the form of The Crystal Bearers, we're offered something completely different

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers ends up taking it's place on the figurative shelf of failed experiments. It deviates too far from the classic adventure genre (in a negative way), and piles on some extra problems.

Final Fantasy CC: The Crystal Bearers Review

 

Final Fantasy. For most gamers, these two words probably conjure up thoughts of sweeping, war-torn realms, legendary heroes, near-perpetual narrative gravitas and other really heavy stuff. As the series has grown-up and evolved (along with Square...

It may not be the huge, serious undertaking we’ve generally come to expect from most Square games, but Crystal Bearers is still an entertaining and worthwhile investment (it’s also one of the prettiest Wii games yet), particularly for the more casual...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers

 

The vibrant world and exciting story of this action game are at odds with its repetitive and frustrating gameplay.

Richly detailed and diverse world ; Exciting, well-told story

Shallow, repetitive combat ; Absence of map makes it easy to get lost ; Character customization is uninvolving

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers

 

It's Final Fantasy, but it's hardly RPG. That doesn't make it bad, though.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is really a Final Fantasy game in name and setting only. It features almost no role-playing elements and focuses much more heavily instead on exploration and adventure. It doesn't even really fit...

A beautiful world beset by boring combat.
