Summary: I have played FF 6, 7, 8 ,9, and 10. Then stopped bothering as from 9 onward, things got progressively worse, so the ones I have enjoyed the most are 7 and 8. With this in mind, I'll review Crisis Core accordingly. Pros: 1.stunningly beautiful cinematics.
Summary: While this game does expand on FF7, it's only by story. The battle system is no longer turn based, and instead replaces by more of a star ocean style system. This means, you basically use attacks to constantly juggle the enemy.
Summary: Took like 6 hours to beat, game physics aren't great. Battle system is oversimplified, and specials are random. Not an RPG, more of a hack and slash, and there are not really any real explorable areas. Lots of missions though. Anywho, gave it a 3 out of 5, didn't hate it, but sure didn't love it.
Summary: Before buying this game, I played God of war: Chains on Olympus on my Psp and I must say this game has nothing in comparison to that. GOW has cool Graphics, matured story line, Great gameplay and is soley intended for adults. On the other hand Crisis Core has nothing good to talk about.
Summary: If you are a FF7 fan, you probably have the game already, if not then get it. If you like RPG games in general and wondering about whether to get it or not then read on. RPG is my favorite genre (along with turn based strategy games) and I picked this game up thinking that it would be good.
Summary: Unfortunately the gameplay is very repetitive and bland. The bummer is, it does have a decent story, and it's really neat to play in the FF7 era again. The graphics are beautiful. It's very bittersweet. The feel is great, it's so nice to see Aeris alive again and such.
Summary: I'm not a big fan of androgynous teens, where you can't tell whether someone is a boy or a girl unless you focus on their chest. It probably makes a whole lot more sense to fans of the Final Fantasy series of games and anime.
Pros: Great graphics in the cut scenes. Good graphics and sound effects in the actual game. A quite big game for the money, giving plenty of hours of play time. A "clean" game, well suited for younger teens.
Cons: Difficult to control camera. Auto-targeting leaves a lot to be desired, especially as it's linked to camera control. Confusing mix between spoken dialogue and on-screen dialogue -- you'll get cut scenes with a dozen sentences spoken out loud, followed by a couple that you have to read, followed b...
Summary: Story (8/10): Great story as it relates to Zack but contains gaps in the plot for the other characters, leaving the overall experience not quite connected. Graphics (10/10): One of the best for the PSP. Sound (10/10): Usually I zone out the sound on most games but not this one.
Summary: OK. So I bought this with the assumption that I would be given more insight into the world of Final Fantasy VII. Finally, a revisit to the world that ultimately kept me going on RPGs through the PlayStation era.
