Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Catch-All

I didn't see a general topic about this, so.. here we go.

Did anyone pick this up? I had heard that it was receiving stellar marks, and considering the last PSP game I bought was Jeanne D'Arc I decided to give it a whirl.

So far.. I like it. It's picked up the Final Fantasy VII atmosphere easily, and it's great to see some events unfold that you only read about in Cloud's story. For example, I received an email while walking around the city that stated that Rufus Shinra "has been happily instated to the Vice President position". I thought it was rather amusing, yet creepy since many of us who will be playing the game know what happens later down the road.

I like the story, love the voiceovers and cutscenes, but the battle system and leveling take a bit to get used to. Rather, the battle system will take an hour since leveling is completely out of your control as far as I can tell. It's more of a slot mini-game that will sometimes nab you leveled up abilities or stats, but usually just give you immunity to damage or a chain-like "Limit Break" attack.

The battles also seem sorta easy to me, which hopefully will be amped up a bit as the game progresses.

Well, I already did this in the other CC:FFVII thread:


I don't know why that original thread doesn't show up using SEARCH... but oh well. If people want to shift over to this thread, I guess I'll just cut and past my impressions over here.

Maybe this thread should become the home, if it shows up on search.

Sorry for not seeing it in the search. It's not my fault. Blame Certis!

This thread does show up in the search, by the way. I just checked.
