Trivia

In the Japanese version of Crisis Core, if Zack is KO'd during a side mission, it is a Game Over. In the international versions, the game treats it as if you abandoned the mission and return you to the save point. This actually leads to an exploit where you can steal an infinite amount of otherwise rare Phoenix Downs from the Bonus Boss and use them to max out your cash and all your materia. See more »

Okay game, but in the end it just increases my desire to see part seven remade on a more powerful system.
29 July 2008 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

Yes, I want to see part seven remade and this one kind of shows you how that might look. Not only would the graphics be improved, but they could add voice overs too. Not that this one was not good, but it was not really all that great game play wise. An action rpg which is fine seeing as how Zack is the only character you control, the main problems stem from the various missions in the game. They total 300 and anyone who completes all of them could probably beat the final bosses blindfolded as I had no trouble with them and I had completed only half. I would have rather have had more game play in the main story. More locations would have been nice too. Also, pieces of this story don't really fit into what was established in part seven of Final Fantasy. One would probably be correct in assuming that none of this was thought of when they were making seven. Still they did an okay job with the story. What is the story, basically this one tells the story of Zack as he makes his way through the ranks of soldier doing various missions. He is tracking a rogue soldier operative named Genesis. Along the way you meet many of the characters from Final Fantasy VII including Seipheroth, Cloud, Tifa, Yuffie and others though the main one for Zack is Aerith. The fighting is a sort of encounter the enemy and then fighting them action rpg style. It is a bit annoying to try and use potions and such in this one, still it is a very fast paced combat. So for a nice little back story of FFVII play this one as it may have a lot of faults it still has a very memorable and sad ending.
