Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core

Final Fantasy VII has a lot to answer for

Import review:Crisis Core is a game associated with the most highly regarded PlayStation RPG of all time. No pressure, mind, because FFVII fans were probably already expecting nothing but mediocrity after the PS2's middling Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus. Well, here's the good news: Crisis Core is not an average game. It's an exceptional one.... read more

YAY! Go CVG for giving this the score it deserves - this game rocks!!! :P

I've been playing the Japanese version since it came out and I'm loving every minute of it!

It's definitely a game worthy of a PSP purchase, and I know I'm going to love it even more when the English version finally comes out...whenever that is!

I clocked this in Japanese it's a top game even though I didn't have a clue what was going on. However it is an all out action RPG that's much more linear than traditional Final Fantasy games. It also has the best CG sequences I've ever seen in any game.

Why on earth do you play these games in Japanese and not know what is happening?

Eventually I will buy a PSP, I've been holding off for the slim-lite version. This is one game I would get a PSP for - hope they do some sort of bundle with it.
Victory is just a prelude to the next battle.

I agree - there was no way that I was waiting until next summer for the chance to play this game!!!

this is the first time that I have imported a Japanese RPG and despite being quite text heavy it's not actually that hard to play. I am about two-thirds through the game now and have only got stuck a few times.

Don't knock it before you try it! :P

No Way!

Postby juggaloking13 » 29 Nov 2007, 23:44

First of all, I would just like to say that I don't actually own this game, my neighbor does. I have played it extensively though and I (IHMO) would have to disagree with the score given. I would have maybe given this game a 7 or an 8. The controls could have been better and, to me, the gameplay felt a little dull. I've had my PSP since a month after the US launch and I still havn't found a game worthy of upgrading my firmware, from 1.5, to play current games. (emulators FTW!) Tempted by GTA:LCS, but I figured that it would come to the PS2 or Xbox and I was right. (about the PS2 that is) If recent sales of the PS2 are anything to go by, I should expect to see this game on there as well. However, if $ony wants to sell a few more PSP's they should end the PS2 or not allow game developers to port PSP games to the consoles. Just my opinion though.

I personally think it's worthy of CVG's score, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I am sure this will get mixed bag reviews when it is released in the west.

My personal bug-bears are the camera which can be a bit annoying - it's easy to loose your bearings after those random battles and the DMW for me feels a bit hit and miss sometimes...

Were you expecting no answer at all?

FF7 has been dead to me since Advent Children. Wish they'd leave the franchise alone now- it was a brilliant game, with a superb story (though I remember plenty of typos!), it's a shame they've crippled it. Crisis Core maybe descent enough, but can I really trust this review? Square haven't made descent FF game since... well, 7!
