Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles

Into Liquid Sky
12 March 2005
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is the first Final Fantasy game to be on a Nintendo console since back on the Super Nintendo days. It's quite a departure from what the normal Final Fantasy games are like, but is it any good?
  • Pros: Graphics, Control, Music, Multiplayer madness
  • Cons: GBA requirement, No deep story, Single player will get boring for some

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles

The Next Level
14 April 2004
  • Excerpt: The focus here is obviously on teamwork and helping each other, and so long as the people you play with aren't self-centered and recognize how to play as a team, Crystal Chronicles will make for one hell of a time. As a party of anywhere from one to four people (three or four being optimal), that group will be the hope of a town that requires them to adventure out and return with a life-giving force.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (Gamecube) Review

Vooks
12 March 2004
  • Excerpt: So Final Fantasy has finally come back to Nintendo after a long time of waiting. Fans should rejoice but not all is what it is seemed. For example this final fantasy does not have random battles, turn based combat or the excellent storyline, it just seems like a quite poor hack and slash when you play it for the first time and as you progress through it.

Expert Review

Kikizo
20 April 2003
  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles bares little resemblance to the Final Fantasy games seen on the Playstation or SNES, so to call this a return to Nintendo would be off the mark. It would be more accurate to say that this is a new branch of the franchise that will hopefully grow on under the Nintendo name.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles GameCube Review

DarkZero
23 May 2005
  • Excerpt: It’s been many a year since a Final Fantasy game has been booted up on a Nintendo console. It has been almost eight years since that little fallout happened between the two companies and now Square-Enix, under the guise of Game Designer Studio, brings Final Fantasy back to where it started. Some may even refer to it as it homecoming of a long lost friend. We all welcome someone that has been away for a while, but how much has our friend changed since it has been away?

  • Conclusion: Auch wenn Final Fantasy enorm viel Peripherie benötigt: Die Interaktion zwischen Gameboy Advance und GameCube funkioniert ganz hervorragend. Connectivity at it´s best in einer fesselnden, wunderschönen und lebendigen Welt voller Mythen und Zauberei - und das exklusiv auf unserem GameCube!
  • Pros: erstklassiger Mehrspielermodus, atemberaubende Kulisse, Action satt, fesselnder Charme
  • Cons: viel Peripherie nötig, zeitweise hektisch, etwas linear

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, le test

Nintendo
1 January 2004
  • Excerpt: Composé de 5 lettres, ce mot que vous crierez au monde entier alors que vous serrez votre exemplaire (collector pour les chanceux et avec le CD Audio pour les miraculés) contre votre cœur exprime tout le bonheur qui vous submerge. Ce mot est "enfin". Car, enfin, après de longues années d’absence sur une console de salon Nintendo, SquareEnix revient avec une petite perle, un bijou serti qui n’est autre que Final Fantasy : Crystal Chronicles et comme par hasard, c’est le...
