Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - The Crystal Bearers

released on Nov 12, 2009

A thousand years have passed since the events of the original Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. The destruction of the Yuke Crystal during the Great War, with the Yuke Tribe suffering apparent annihilation, had at last brought the victorious Lilties dominion over the world as they bring it into a new age of science and reason through machines called "crystal reactors," with the use of magic outlawed and rule over the Clavats and few Selkies who comply to the new order. In this new era of imbalance exists a rare breed of powerful beings called "crystal bearers", whose seemingly magical abilities have led them to be feared and scorned by the public.

You can throw any random NPC off of any building. What more do you need?

Cool ideas and interesting mechanics. Considering it's something a little out of the comfort zone from Square Enix and exclusively for Wii you gotta admit it was a very daring interesting move.

Weird to think that this one is one of the few CC games single-player only.

I think this game was unforcantely forgotten for the final fantasy series. It's a nice action adventure game if you are not looking for anything intaully in your face RPG like main like FF or a multiplayer centric game like Chronicles.

While I havent played anything else in this series, I believe this game is a cool standout game that I lump with the experimental side series like Last Story. It was a pretty fun time to play with the physics, making everyone or the enemys explode.
Plus this is one of the few times quick time events didn't bug me. Its strange at first how you can skip leveling or getting items, but I like the freedom it gives for people to play the game in different ways their one time or for multiple runs. One of the only complants I'll give is I was you could have trigger Maisma yourself at some point to make getting health easier.

Other than that it had an exciting story reminding me of some older FF games while making something new!! Strangely this was one of the finals fantasy games that didn't stretch on forever, which was refreshing. I still love that in FF though.

I want nothing to do with Belle though, she makes me angry. Although it balanced out by another awesome Non-binary character with Amidatelion, they just came out of no where as a fun character to see on screen be methodical and bring a different pace to half way through the game. I felt every main character got their moment to do something.

Also as a last thing the game looks pretty for its time & had some of the best animation I've seen on Wii! It's pretty beautiful how the game gives you subtle expressions without directly speaking their mind.

I really loved a good bit of this game.
If you want to play something small, please give this a try, it was fun streaming!~ c:

Gameplay et qualité graphique sauvés par une manette Switch Pro et un texture pack dans Dolphin, le 1er point surtout tant c’est lourd les déplacements de caméra avec Wiimote/Nunchuk.
Côté histoire, très sympa à suivre sur la 10/12aine d’heures de jeu.
Des regrets surtout dans les phases motion gaming pour certains mini jeux liés à l’histoire, et un gameplay télékinésique qui n’évolue pas (la même chose du début à la fin)
C’était pas si mal au final, mais conseillé en émulation plutôt qu’en version d’origine.

I remember it being kind of cool when I was 10 but I also do not remember anything about the actual story and gameplay. I do remember being able to throw random people though, that shit was funny

This is an alright game.
Soundtrack is different from your usual FF but it's nice.
Character wise it's a bit all over the place, protagonist is ok, side cast is nice, the villain is literally one of the best designs ever like holy shit.
Just wish this wasn't too dependent on the Wii motion controls cuz half the time they are unneeded to progress due to exploits on fucking D-pad XD
