    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 Game is very boring, not at all like the original gamecube game, and has no replay value.

    This game is awful. The controls are unresponsive and combat was bland and confusing. Every character's voice was grating and their personality even more so. Even the music contrasted horribly with the game.
    Really, the only high point in it was the graphics, but it's not enough to save this trainwreck.

    I do not see why people even praise this garbage.

    Cons:

    1. Bugs and Glitches are on par with Sonic 06

    2.the story is even worse than final fantasy XIII

    3. the whole game is a mental chore to play unlike sonic 06 where you actually have something to poke fun at this game sucks your soul out.

    Pros:

    You will realize just how good you have it with other final fantasy tittles.

    **** 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.

  1. After a cool introductory sequence, things go downhill immediately. [Jan 2010, p.85]
  2. The absolute best part of the game is all of the stuff you can do besides the main plot. Not that the main plot isn’t fun – it’s just that the minigames are limited to chases, jumping puzzles and the occasional weirdness like ballroom dancing.

    While the game's main adventure was off to a good start, and even manages to be truly entertaining at times, these oddly paced, often poorly controlled pit stops really bring down the game's more appealing core mechanics.
