Wasn't Half Bad

Summary: This game wasn't half bad. I actually enjoyed it a lot. The thing I like about it is that it is a full co-op game. Granted with most games there are negatives, but with this game you don't really pay attention to the negatives. Granted the one thing I didn't like is that in order to play co-op, each player must use the GBA (or in my cousin's case, a GB Micro) and use the GBA to GC link.
Summary: A long time ago I owned this game, but sold it, and I still can't figure out why! While I do think there are some great aspects to the game, I think those are highlighted enough to be left alone for now. So how about what bothered me? You may notice I gave an 8/10 for character customization, because at the beginning of the game you decide what "tribe" your hero will be, what they'll look like, their gender, their father's occupation, the name of the home town (this one...
Summary: This is a Final Fantasy game, so you should expect it to be good. If you did, you won't be disappointed. While definitely imperfect, this is my favorite game in the series for the following reasons. The name of the game is Crystal Chronicles, and rightfully so-- right at the outset you receive a very large blank book dubbed 'the Crystal Chronicles' in which your caravan records all its adventurous memories.
Summary: This was a good installment to the Final Fantasy series (and I was so happy that Final Fantasy FINALLY returned home to Nintendo), but I was pissed that Nintendo creating such a marketing scheme around it. I mean, you have to buy 4 Gameboy Advances to play multiplater mode with everyone. What a rip-off! The one player mode was great, but jeez ... aren't they making enough money anyway???
Summary: I got this game for under £20 and I found it an alright game to play. I played this in single player and found it more difficult than it would be in multi but still a lot of fun. The good points is that the game has great music, graphics are really nice for a cube game. Also there was some humor as well and some cute character design. The bad points is that there is hardly a story in this game compared with most square-enix games.
A diversion for the FF series, which is by no means bad.

Summary: Crystal Chronicles may have its flaws, but it's still a game worthy enough to be played in a wide time-span. The character selection is actually quite interesting in the way that you are not restricted to one character to fight through the storyline. You can choose to specialise in strength, defence, magic, speed, and you even get a variety of looks to choose from. You gotta admit that's quite cool.

Summary: This game is superb and a must have for all RPG lovers or Final Fantasy fans. The game is based on you travelling in your caravan to each place collecting myrrh from myrrh trees.Each drop of myrrh(you gain one drop from each tree) fills a third of your chalice. When your chalice id full you complete that year and return to your home town to revitalise your crystal which protects your village from the deadly miasma, so does the chalice you carry everywhere.
Wonderful for multiplayer, single players may get jealous!

Summary: Bizarrely, alot of people reviewing this seem to have had a problem with Square's first outing on a Nintendo for quite some time. Did these people not catch reviews of the game? A quick glance at the blurb on the back of the box? Or did seeing the words Final Fantasy splashed across the front of the box make their hands fly in an uncontrollable spasm to a greasy wad of notes to puchase this game? I don't know.
