    In the end, The Crystal Bearers manages to be a somewhat simple but entertaining adventure, but one that is polished and put together with care, for the sole purpose of entertaining the player.

    Game is very boring, not at all like the original gamecube game, and has no replay value. It's the basic point and throw game. I felt like i was doing the same thing the entire game. On top of that, the second player has no say on what goes on in the game, they get very little control in the game as is. If you are looking for a real crystal chronicles game, look to the original gamecube game, or the early ds versions. Full Review »

    **** sucks. Almost every character is an anime stereotype, and the combat is just the worst. It feels like you're not doing anything to the enemies and you need to throw things at them so if you don't have anything to throw, you're useless. It does take you to some cool places, and it is pretty for a Wii game. It does interesting things with the story. Not good, but interesting. Full Review »

    this game is a WII Gem, the reason that its getting bad reviews is because people are looking at it like it should be a tratitional rpg game, there are interesting characters and an interesting story.

    the game is not meant to be fast paced, in my opinion the best way to play this game is by exploring the different zones and towns, finding secrets and Medal hunting (Acheivments)

    i think this game never got the attention it deserved, i certainly enjoyed it.
