Game Vortex: Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Review

Game Vortex writes: "So far, Square Enix's attempts to build around the popularity of Final Fantasy VII haven't been that successful. Dirge of Cerberus, the Vincent-focused shooter, was met with mediocre reviews and Advent Children, the CGI movie sequel, was fun but in the end, it was really just a pretty movie with little in the way of (understandable) plot. The lack of VII-related success has probably helped fuel the desire for a full-on remake of the original game, and while Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII isn't the remake most fans seem to be clamoring for, it does one better.

You'd be hard-pressed to bring up anything Square Enix related without first mentioning the amazing production values. Crisis Core combines Advent Children's visual style with Kingdom Heart's look. Overall, it looks fantastic and ranks alongside Chains of Olympus as one of the PSP's graphical powerhouses. Several locales from the original game are faithfully recreated, which should give fans a nostalgic chill the first time they see them. Much of the original's fantastic soundtrack is featured, though most have been reworked into remixes or re-orchestrated to make better use of the PSP's sound capabilities." (Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, PSP) 95/100
