Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII CG Artwork

Few role-playing games have left a bigger footprint on the industry than the influential, instrumental Final Fantasy VII. You can't toss a Buster sword into a crowd of gamers without hitting a few who'd call themselves true fans, and it's nearly impossible to find a player who isn't at least vaguely aware of the title despite the fact that it came out eleven years and two hardware generations ago. Without VII leading the charge, it's hard to imagine that RPGs would have taken off in the domestic market the way they did, and just about every spiky-haired amnesiac who's come down the pike since then owes at least a small debt to Cloud Strife and company. With this legacy in mind, it's not hard to see why Square would want to capitalize on the VII mindshare, but the fact is that none of their recent efforts to cash in on that landmark effort have done justice to, or truly enhanced the source material.

The latest attempt, Crisis Core is no different.

Putting aside all concerns of characterization and storytelling for the moment, as far as I'm concerned, Crisis Core is a complete failure in terms of mechanics and gameplay. There's no arguing that it's probably the most beautiful PSP game produced thus far, easily eclipsing the vast majority of PS2 games when it comes to visual sweetness, but once the sugar high wears off, it's hard to ignore the repetitive combat and absurd design choices that keep it from being anything but fanservice piffle.

Best described as a hybrid between real-time and turn-based combat systems, players control main character Zack Fair much like any other standard action game, the difference being that he auto-targets towards the closest enemy in the direction he's facing, and the type of action taken (attack, minor magic, healing, etc.) is selected by moving a cursor back and forth on a menu in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.

This setup seemed clever at first, perhaps a way to compensate for some of the PSP's physical drawbacks. However, the more I played, the less involved I felt—and the more toothless the combat became. Since clicking the Attack command makes Zack automatically move towards the target and execute the command, there's no need to master timing or worry much about positioning. Occasionally hitting the Dodge or Block button will help against tougher enemies, but this auto-combat setup means it's entirely possible to win most battles by spamming the attack button—looking at the screen is optional.

Taking even more out of players' hands, the designers have created a bizarre slot-machine called the Digital Mind Wave to handle leveling up, Summon spells and other magic that enhances Zack or his abilities. Instead of being able to cast the powerful, cinematic incantations that have been a Final Fantasy trademark at will, the game constantly spins three wheels. When the wheels match portraits of characters, the action stops and a spell occurs whether you want it or not. When the same wheels match numbers, it will randomly level-up the item you had equipped in a given spot, though you never know which one will get the boost.

I'd like to go on record now as saying that the DMW system is one of the worst ideas I've ever encountered—is Square-Enix under the impression that their audience is incapable of managing basic functions that have been central to their games and the genre for the last decade? By removing my ability to choose, not only was I left hanging when I needed some high-caliber backup during boss battles, the game kept "hitting the jackpot" and casting spells I didn't want when trying to get through generic enemies that my auto-fighting would easily destroy anyway. Being interrupted every three seconds with unnecessary spells and being forced-fed unskippable cutscenes is not my idea of entertaining gameplay—automatic assistance can be a great option when players need to manage multiple things at once, but when all I'm doing is hitting one button and yawning, I don't need the computer to usurp my decision-making.

(…And at this point, I'm sure some readers are outraged that I haven't yet mentioned the "added value" side missions that occur completely apart from the main narrative, existing only to "reward" the player with extra items and a longer completion time. Since the quality of Crisis Core's gameplay is terrible I don't see how giving more of it is a good thing, but there is a ton of monster-killing and repetitive side-questing here for those who want it. FYI.)

With the gameplay a flop, the only thing left to discuss is the plot. One of the key twists in Final Fantasy VII involved the hero's lost memories and his relationship to a character that was only seen in revelatory flashbacks. Zack was that character, and Crisis Core chronicles the events immediately preceding VII. The mileage gained from this supporting adventure will entirely depend on the amount of love the player has for VII. Personally, I haven't sat down with VII since the week it was released, I didn't think the original twist necessitating this game was well-done in the first place, and I can't say I've been waiting on pins and needles for this bit of backstory since then. Nail-biting drama you can't take your eyes away from, this isn't.

When I buy a PSP title, I want something interesting, original, and above all, something that's entertaining to play. Hardly the blockbuster system-seller it's made out to be, Crisis Core is a puffed-up minigame that could easily fit inside a larger RPG alongside snowboarding, a few gambling diversions and a Chocobo breeding quest. Without harboring a socially crippling VII obsession myself, I could only endure it for twenty or thirty minutes at a time before becoming painfully bored, and when I walked away from it, I immediately forgot what I had been doing. After several such sessions, I started to wonder why I was even bothering to come back to it—so I didn't.

If the words "the death of Aeris" don't bring a tear to your eye, then dropping $40 on Crisis Core certainly will. here's hoping the inevitable VII remake fares better than this game did. Rating: 3.5 out of 10

I was doing ffvii marathon since the end of 2015(yeah, i’m a bit late to play them but there was I playing). I started with the original FFVII on my psp. With the problems and the successes of the game i enjoyed the experience, so i was very motivated to play Crisis Core. But after 15 hours of gameplay I really coundn’t like it. I thought i was the only one in earth that didn’t find to like this. Thank heaven i found you, Brad and other players with nearly the same sights about CC.

Well I can’t say I don’t agree with alot of Brad’s review, but I do have to say that I truely enjoyed FF7CC. The CGI in the game is some of the best I’ve ever seen! The ingame grafics are outstanding! And I loved the music. But like Brad said, I thought the DMW system was strange. It took just to much control out of the players hands. But in the end, I just couldn’t help but love this game. It has a certain charm that just completly engulfs you. I would have to rate this game 8.5 out of… Read more »

I loved this game, I didn’t care for the ending but it was the best game ever at least to me next to Dragoneers Aria. I wish my PSP worked still. After I played the game I ended up dropping my PSP and it broke *Cries* but its a great game! Unless you have a stragtegy RPG playing two year old. I wouldn’t recommend it for them.

I bought the game for 10 bucks, and I don’t like it. The developers did not put much thought into the environments. For example, Sector 8 has areas that are blocked off by a red dotted line, and streets that have invisible walls. I contest that the graphics do not look that great, as Sector 8, like many of the environments up to that point, were cheaply made; look at the red velvet ropes in front of the huge loveless poster. There are also very few random characters walking around … Midgar should be busier, I think. Perhaps everyone was… Read more »

I only got a PSP a little earlier this year (hand me down from my bro), and I’m unashamedly a huge fan of FF7, it was my first RPG & I’ve enjoyed few RPGs as much as it. So naturally I want to play the prequel. I was really looking forward to it, I was. But Brad’s review really sums it up. The side quest things are boring as hell and have nothing to do with the story – which itself is pretty lame. I’ve played at least half of the game & there’s been nothing that seems to have… Read more »

I’ve not been a big fan of the Final Fantasy series in general. From what I know most games pick up in plot and poignancy later and later in the series. It was with quite some hesitation I decided to pick up Crisis Core. I believe it to be a worthwhile purchase. I’ve been a fan of the shin megami tensei series as well as star ocean and this game fits in a lot with the latter. The “random” advancement from the DMW is not really all that random. It seems to just be a kind of crazy visual to… Read more »

im going to assume that this reviewer played the game on the easier mode, because just spamming the attack button on hard will get you killed by most of the generic encounters. I dont think the battle system is top notch, but it is a lot more in depth then this guy lets on. +materia fusion is pretty neat, im constantly leveling up my materia just to see what i can make next.

Hi, I’m just inputting my opinion here. I completely agree with Brad’s review of DMW. It really is not worth putting in and I think it would have been better if they stuck with the original Turn-based system. In FFVII and FFX the battles with the monsters were also repetitive and boring so I don’t really think it’s fair for you to criticize FF7 CC for that aspect. The plot I found was really good but perhaps they didn’t explain it in the best way and it isn’t completely terrible. And the thing about the sidequests is (IMO) mainly for… Read more »

Looks to me that Square Enix is just milking the Final Fantasy 7 franchise even more. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the original Final Fantasy 7 game. Instead of making all these knock off Final Fantasy games, Square should just remake Final Fantasy 7 [Same exact game] with newer graphics for the Playstation 3 or Xbox 360.

I find this review and many of the comments made here comical on both sides. There seems to be an awful lot of assumptions going on. For one, I find it amusing that the reviewer is apparently not allowed to dislike the game. Just because the reviewer’s opinion differs from the majority, it doesn’t mean that he “needs to get real,” or that he is “blind.” He simply has different tastes.

To make it clear, I LOVE final fantasy to bits. I’ve played it from 6-10. But this Crisis Core is only good for one thing: showcasing the sweet, sweet romance between Zack and Aerith. Brad, you were 100% right on the money. The gameplay is so horribly uneven and dull that it detracts from the whole experience. I almost threw the PSP against the wall every single time a stupid grunt casts Death on me, and I died. Then I’ve got to restart the whole mission, mindlessly x-bashing from Point A to Point B.

Everyone needs to step back and chill out. This is an opinion on the game from one perspective. Aren’t people allowed to formulate their own opinions without being attacked over them?

I just started to play CC and I am enjoying it quite a bit. I agree with Brad on his take on the combat system, although you can put more strategy into it if you wanted to. But for the most part, he is right, it is not necessary and you can just spam attack. I don’t mind this and am enjoying the game anyway.
