    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is another instalment to the FFCC series. It is very similar to its DS predecessor although with many updates and changes. The player still controls the characters through the arrow buttons and use interactive abilities (attacking, magic, or holding). You can also play cooperatively on your Wii through a Nintendo DS which is a good addition.Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is another instalment to the FFCC series.

The player still controls the characters through the arrow buttons and use interactive abilities (attacking, magic, or holding). You can also play cooperatively on your Wii through a Nintendo DS which is a good addition. The game still uses each tribes' combat system, mostly an overhead real-time hack-and-slash form of fighting; however, it added in a new weaponry system, in which all tribes may use a variety of weapons and have abilities which range from two to three types of weapons. New weapons have also been added. The main problem with the game is that it is way too similar to the DS version. The Wii version of the game contains all of the major elements of the DS version, but must be played on a single screen. To compensate, the Wii version has two adjustable in-game windows. Each window has a maximum size that is approximately 40% of the total screen which can make the text (on both the play and item windows) difficult to read. I would advise getting the DS version instead or FFCC: The Crystal Bearers. Expand

    I am a huge fan of the entire FF Series dating back to the original. I must admit when i saw this game on a preview trailer, i wasn't expecting too much from it. However i went out on a limb and decided to get it on the wii and i must admit it got me hooked. The movement is quick and it's not long before you find yourself fighting your first boss. The graphics are not THAT great. That isI am a huge fan of the entire FF Series dating back to the original.

The movement is quick and it's not long before you find yourself fighting your first boss. The graphics are not THAT great. That is because of it being a transfer of the DS verision, however i have never been fussed about the graphics, and the gameplay will not disappoint you if you have played FF-CC: Rings of fate as it is the same style for battles and movement.

    The only true drawback i find with this game on the wii is the dual screen. It is a bit annoying and if you play on a small tv you might find the text hard to read. Other than that though, SE have, IMO, made a fun game that you can party with 3 others in a team of 4 and dungeon crawl till your hearts content.

    Portability and touch-screen functionality give the DS game the edge. [Apr 2009, p.84]

    An excellent adventure for Wiimote wagglers or stylus junkies - and even better with both. [Apr 2009, p.62]

    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.
