    The dialogue frequently doesn’t make sense, then, and the plot often makes even less.
  2. If the words "the death of Aeris" don't bring a tear to your eye, then dropping $40 on Crisis Core certainly will.

    Fighting system is very addictive. Amazing soundtrack with brilliant guitar pieces. Story provides some good sections but mostly it's unfocused and questionable. Full Review »

    I like Zack Fair. It has great graphics and gameplay. Controls are very smooth. I often laugh about Zack's crushes in the game. Aerith and Tifa were so young and beautiful back then. Full Review »
