Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Price I Paid: Gift
If I’m being completely honest, I probably wouldn’t have played this game if it wasn’t a gift. I already know way to much about the FF7 universe, for someone who claims not to care about it, and I was sure I couldn’t lie with a straight face after playing another game in the controversial series. My desire to waste time got the best of me and I did jump into it.
The positives: It’s gorgeous (like most Square games), complete, and the story is more redeemable than expected. Zach is a fucking idiot, but somehow endearing.
The negatives: There is zero challenge, zero. Literally, zero. It might take a little effort to collect all the extras, but it hardly feels like it would give any sense of accomplishment. The battle system is simple, and the story is not really THAT interesting, just simply better told than you would expect.
Rating: 3 stars
