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


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 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 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...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


Hey, what a surprise. The PSP has yet another RPG for you to waste another 200 hours on while staring at your handheld's screen. But what makes Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII worth your time? Well, you can't just say "It's a FFVII game, it has to be...

I can probably go on to make more assumptions about Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, but I'd rather beat the game before I say anything else. I can't say that the concept of the game is anything new, but hey, people still buy first person shooters. I'm...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


Crisis Core is an exciting and poignant journey that every fan of role-playing games should take.

Incredible and poignant story, starring a likeable and complex hero ; Every aspect of the production design, from cutscenes to voice acting, is utterly amazing ; The DMW is a weird but fun way of levelling up ; Enjoyable and addictive combat

Combat is on the easy side ; Player has no control over limit breaks and levelling

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII is a game you must play if you own a PSP, if you like RPGs, or if you want to get lost in a gripping story. Like most Final Fantasy games that came before it, it has its quirks. However, this is one of those cases where...

Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII


In the age of Halo, GTA, BioShock, Guitar Hero and their assorted mass-market familiars, games matter. They matter a lot. They probably matter as much as music, or film, or literature; although the old-fashioned mass media might tell you otherwise....

Plot is understandably key, and Square-Enix are eager to control the manner in which players moves through Crisis Core. If you find you're moving through the main game too quickly, there are a range of side missions that can prove entertaining...

Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core (PSP) review


Final Fantasy VII remains one of the most loved and respected games of all time, widely considered by fans as being the best of the now highly prestigious RPG series. I can't argue with this praise, as FFVII still remains one of my all time console RPG...

Whilst it does have its undeniable charms, first and foremost Crisis Core is designed to be fan service: Whilst the weight of the FFVII hallmark gives the game an undeniable sense of gravity, at times it feels as if it also smothers it.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII


As a prequel to Final Fantasy VII - regarded by many as the best RPG ever made, and a game that helped make the genre popular outside Japan - Crisis Core has a daunting legacy to live up to. But even though the experience is tainted by a handful of...

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...
