If there is one thing Square Enix knows how to do, it is match art direction with technical prowess. "The Crystal Bearers" is not any different. The title features an abundance of color, detailed character models, as well as the usual effects and touches common throughout all factions of the series. "The Crystal Bearers" is a bit different in regards that it is both an entirely 3D world, but also features full camera control. This is a welcome addition as it really helps solidify the title as a true adventure game, and not a linear experience with carefully orchestrated set pieces. To be fair, not every area of the game looks great. However, even the less impressive locations at least look passable.
