Now I am a huge Final Fantasy 7 fan, thank god for my mum buying me the game for my birthday or I may have missed out on one of the greatest gaming experiences I've ever had. I loved that game, great characters, great story, great game play, Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core was the reason I got a PSP, and the reason I wanted Crisis Core was because of the original Final Fantasy 7. Let's just say, I'm not enjoying this game.
How the hell do I centre this image?! Anyways, I own Advent Children on UMD and DVD, soon Bluray as well. I also own the original Final Fantasy 7, a decorated piece of glass saying 'Ben's Final Fantasy 7' room, Crisis Core of course and a limited edition Crisis Core PSP.
Why do I dislike this game? Well first off let's talk about the combat, it's slow, boring, repetitive and requires almost no skill. I really don't know what they were trying to do here, I mean, I win most battles because of that stupid slot wheel thing. I think the combat just lacks variety over all, it's simpl: cast magic, cast magic, cast magic, cast magic, block and then maybe bash X if you run out of teh pointzorz.
I mean, I don't have much of a problem with the story, because it's not milking the franchise as much as say, Advent Children, because it's based on something that was touched upon in the original game, What I do have a problem with though is the introduction of a random character that has never been mentioned before 'Genesis' another girly faced man witch. I just felt like this character was introduced to beef up the plot, because he's certainly not important in the overall FF7 plot
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate this game, I'm just not a huge fan, and I think that's saying a lot coming from a Final Fantasy 7 fanboy.
