Guest reviewer for Evolved Gaming, Molotov Cupcake, overall on Crystal Defenders is, "If you're a die-hard Final Fantasy fan like myself and you want to see what all the fuss is about, this XBLA title is well worth a purchase. If you enjoy tower defense, you should give it a look as well. It's a very well-paced, delightful little diversion with plenty of challenges to satisfy even the most elitist of tower defense gamers. Plus - moogles. How can you resist?"
