Crystal Bearers places you in the shoes of Layle, a hotshot telekinetic sorcerer of sorts, whom harnesses the intense power of said crystals. For your everyday anime fan, this actually sounds like a pretty cool story, but does it prove to be more than your typical fare?
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers takes a short departure from the formulatic JRPG formula, instead, taking on on the identity of a pure adventure game, similar to the the recent Gamecube and Wii Legend of Zelda iterations."
