Random Game #28 – Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearer [Wii]

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles The Crystal Bearers

When you have a video game collection like mine, it can be hard to play all of the games. This is especially true when additions are made on an almost weekly basis. Still, I appreciate nearly every game I’ve accumulated for this reason or that. In the hopes of improving my writing through continuous effort and promoting ongoing learning of these games, I’m going to compose brief, descriptive articles.

I’m drawing on a blank on where and when I acquire this game. I’ve played this game with a friend as it has limited co-op functionality. We played for about an hour, so we didn’t complete the game or anything, but what we experienced was enough to make me want to revisit it. Rather than a traditional Final Fantasy RPG system, or a Crystal Chronicles action-RPG system, this game was an action-adventure affair. I ran around as the player-character and interacted with a variety of objects, inspecting them and using them to fight enemies. My friend could do the same. There seemed to be a lot of diversity in the gameplay, a well-presented story, and colorful graphics and designs. A game I’ll have to revisit.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers was developed and published by Square Enix. It was released for the Wii in North America on December 26, 2009.

I’m very happy about last week. I was able to throw a lot of posts up and made progress in the games currently on my docket.

I believe I’m in the final stages of Grandia Xtreme. Before I began playing the game I read a few reviews and one of them mentioned a one hundred floor dungeon. Well, the dungeon I’m currently in seems like it’s going to go on for a long time (there’s been a teleport back to town every five levels so far) and it being the final dungeon would coalesce with where I’m at in the story.

My friend and I also played a couple more hours of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers, but we’re still pretty early on in that game.

I think I will write my first impression/review of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP this week. I’ve played it off and on for a month or so now, but it has been frustrating me recently and I’m going to write about it and be done with it. Although I’ll probably play it when I’m bored in the future…

I began playing a lot of Halo 3 last week. I remembered I recently renewed my Xbox Live Gold and began playing it with my friend. We also played a good deal of NBA Jam on the Sega CD and that game is awesome!

So I should post something about Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP this week, and we’ll see what else.

I took the week off from work last week and I really enjoyed my time off. Visited Eureka Springs, Arkansas among other things. Conveniently enough, I played some video games too.

I’m still moving along nicely in Grandia Xtreme. I’ve put about ten hours into the game and really dig the long, fairly challenging dungeons. The combat is fast-paced and I enjoy it so the time really flies by.

Besides that, my friend and I began playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers for the Wii. It’s an action-adventure game that has minor co-op integration. It looks very nice but doesn’t control all that great. Most of the gameplay so far has stemmed from set pieces that utilize the unique features of the Wii.

I’ve got a few demos I want to play so I will post some first impressions this week.
