    But it's the seamless transitioning of the single-player to the multiplayer (you can hop in and out from one to the other at any save point) that really seals the deal.
  2. It's a great game for the DS, and well worth playing. Avoid the Wii version though, I can't really stress that enough.

    This is probably one of the best Crystal Chronicles entries. The graphics and mechanics are good, and the story pulls you forward pretty well, even if some points are rather predictable yet unavoidable. The battles are usually pretty balanced, but it's always better to at least have an AI team back you up as soon as you can. My major gripe with the AI is that it will follow who you're playing as at any given moment, making team puzzles difficult as they won't stay in place after you switch characters. It's just unfortunate that you will probably not find any online co-op or help in this game so long after its initial release.
