Story
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 had at once brought the victorious Lilty Tribe prosperity, the defeated Yuke Tribe apparent annihilation and the world a new age of science and reason. In this new era 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. The young mercenary Layle is one such crystal bearer, who has been hired to escort the new passenger airship Alexis, the pinnacle of Lilty technology and a symbol of their current dominance. However, when the Alexis is suddenly besieged by a horde of monsters, Layle comes face-to-face with an adversary thought to have vanished from the pages of history that's on a quest that may threaten the future of the world.

Gameplay
FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: THE CRYSTAL BEARERS provides a fresh take on the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES series as it combines the storytelling depth, expansive world and graphical quality of FINAL FANTASY with motion-driven, real-time action gameplay. In this world, realistic gameplay and fantastical art direction are brought together for a truly unique experience for Wii users around the globe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game but may disappoint some... December 29, 2009
By TLH
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a bit hard to review -- you have to look at it from two angles:

1) If you are looking for a classic RPG Final Fantasy game then you will be disappointed. This is not typical Final Fantasy. Don't buy this game if that is what you want. I'd give it 1-2 stars for a Final Fantasy game... but it should be noted, like all FF games they push the graphics and limits of the console and pay close attention to the story.

2) If you are looking for an action/adventure game in the same spirit as Zelda: Twilight Princess then this is your game. FF: The Crystal Bearers feels like a cousin to Twilight Princess and relies on much of the same strategy/game play/experience. I'd give it a solid 4 stars for a fantasy based adventure game.

If you go into this one with no expectations then you will probably be pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag for sure, but all's well that ends well. January 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I originally pre-ordered this game, then watched as numerous negative reviews flooded in when it came out. This worried me, but in the end I kept the order, played the game, and am glad because of it.

The combat takes a bit of getting used to, but eventually ends up being quite different and subsequently, very fun to play around with. You use telekinesis in battle to toss aside, pick up, or throw enemies and objects. You can throw enemies into each other, throw objects at enemies, etc. Experimenting on the best way to damage and destroy enemies is intriguing, and the various objects have different effects (i.e. throwing manure at a beast or throwing a bomb into a goblin for an explosive effect). In a time plagued by games that are essentially visually different concept copies of one another, this introduces something new. A fun little quirk is that your telekinesis also works in towns, so you can try messing around with the unsuspecting townspeople as well. I liked this realism; since Layle isn't exactly the most moral main character, it makes sense that he would not restrict the use of his powers as soon as he enters a town (unlike many other games that prevent you from any such actions within the town/city atmosphere).

I do agree with some of the other criticisms that the controls are hard to grasp at first (especially getting the hang of raising enemies above you), but these difficulties typically disappear and the controls become intuitive after playing for an hour or so. I suspect that those who still have trouble after this time didn't even glance at the manual; I don't normally do this, but the controls in this game are so different that I felt it necessary to do so.

4.0 out of 5 stars A game for open minded FF fans - An unpolished diamond December 31, 2009
By Sherms
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, i haven't received my order yet, but i have been playing this game with a friend's copy, and to this point, i think i can give my personal views and impressions on the game.

This game is very hard to review with objectivity, mainly because is a huge letdown to some, a good and fun game to others, and a great hit game, at least for me and a lot of people i know. It just depends on your expectations (mine were none) and your adaptation to change.

Having played almost every FF game released on USA and Japan, with the notable exception of Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core, I'm OK with Square-Enix shifting of genres and concepts, and i feel comfortable playing old school RPGs as i feel with playing action games.

This game is on the RPG section. Well, the first thing you have to accept: This game is not an RPG, i never expected an RPG though, Square-Enix never advertised it as a pure-in-spirit role playing game, just as an adventure game, that was OK for me, and that's what i wanted. Genres changed so much since 8-bit generation, so the only thing i expect from a game is fun and enjoyment, and believe me, for this generation of videogames, these are VERY HIGH expectations.

I can classify this game as an RPG flavoured Zelda-like adventure. That doesn't mean you have to lower or raise your standards with respect to other FF games, you just have to accept is DIFFERENT in almost every sense.

The story is like a really deep pond. A thousand of years have passed since the original Crystal Chronicles, Lilties went on a war with Yukes, Yukes went extinct. Magic vanished from the world, and now everything relies on crystal technology.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem January 5, 2010
By Brian
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game has its flaws, and many reviews gripe about those. If you take some time to get a real understanding of the controls and battle system you'll find a very solid game for the Wii.

For those of you who may be old schooler gamers... the way I tend to describe this game is that it's like Secret of Mana for the SNES. Both SoM and this game seem to be in the shadows of their "big brothers" from Square Enix, but if you accept what the game is, it really is a very solid title.

Pros:
1) A very solid and engaging story line. You will find yourself caring about what's happened and going on in the world.
2) Innovative and unique battle system
3) One of the most graphically impressive Wii games to date. Sometimes it's genuinely worth it to just stop and look around at the world. And if you see something you like practically any time in the game (including cutscenes) you can take a picture and save to your SD card, which is a nice feature that I hope future Wii games will copy.
4) Plenty of optional mini-games. While you might not find many you like, you're bound to find at least one or two you find addictive, no matter what sort of player you are.
5) BEST WARNING IN ANY INSTRUCTION MANUAL: The instruction manual specifically warns you not to simulate in-game actions, and specifically tells you not to throw people around.

Cons:
1) Voice acting is a mixed-bag. Some of it's very solid. At times it seems a bit off. Nothing terrible... I'd rate in on par with FFX. Not as good as I hoped, but just don't expect it to be perfect. Some lines may sound out-of-place.
2) It takes time to figure out the battle system to really make it enjoyable.
