so has anyone played final fantasy: crisis core for the psp? was it any good? or just really short like all the other psp games seem to be. also, am i really the ONLY one who thinks they should remake FF7 for the psp with all the awsome graphics and stuff? that would be great, would it not?! :)

I mean they have so far remade
I&II GBA/ PSP
III DS
IV DS/GBA/PSX
VI GBA PSX

PS3 would be a better move. I don't think they're going to remake it though. I've heard they're moving on from FF7. Which is a shame, I think. Many would rather they didn't touch it anymore. But I'm all for a remake. : )

I got it a bit after it came out.
I donít think itís a bad game at all, personally because Iím a fan of FFVII.
But really, I think they should move from FFVIIÖ And try to make another good one. Considering X, VII, and VIII, were pretty much the best ones.

FF VI wasn't a remake..

They seem to be remaking them in order. So 5 and 6 would probably come before 7.

I'm somewhat in agreement with StabWound. I'd actually play FF Crystal Chronicles on the cube over VIII and X anyday.

What the hell you been smokin'? Shut up.

VII got too much hype...past the point it could handle. In addition, girls on forums obsess over the two emo characters which makes me lose respect for them.

VIII had the ever-hated "junction magic" system. In addition, you had to go through a painstakingly boring process to acquire Doomtrain.

lastly, Tidus from X looks like one of those participants in a gay pride parade during Mardi Gras. His fashion sense reminds me of Liberace. Compare, fool!!!

Next is the fact that flying creatures can't really be (if at all) hit by close quarters users. You can only use distance weapons or magic. Back in VII you could fight Zu with no problem because of the lack of flight handicap.

Lastly...Blitzball? Playing soccer/basketball in a sphere of water? I would've put in some good ol' football, not this Blitzball crap.

Alongside X-2 and XII, X is one of the crappiest of the crappy.

If i recall correctly, FFIII & VI are virtually the same?

No. VI was just called III when it first came here. The real III never left Japan until the DS remake.

yes it was there was new places on the map and new monsters

is that not a remake then ?

No. That would be a port with some addons.

A remake would be be something like how the first Star Ocean was remade for the PSP and the game was made using Star Ocean 2's graphic engine, the addition of fully voiced dialogue, animated cutscenes, and etc... GAWD I WANT THIS GAME.


And wth was Square thinking back then with the naming? "Oh let's name FF6 FF3 for the silly outsiders and them release the real 3 later under the name of FF3 to confuse the hell out of the world"

It's a port. Remake would be what FF3 and FF4 got on the DS. Or even bringing FF1 & FF2 from the NES age into the SNES age. So FF5 still "needs" that treatment and so does 6 before they get around to disappointing a whole new batch of people who have had 7 so hyped up but have never played it.

They were thinking "this is the third (or second) Final Fantasy game we're releasing there. If we call it Final Fantasy VI people will wonder what happened to the others."

But then I don't really know why they all of a sudden decided to call FF7 by its real number and not call it FF4...Perhaps to better globalize the brand.

Could be. From a marketing stand point maybe. I don't really know. I'm not a marketing major or an old Squaresoft employee. But in those days it was a bit harder to get info on games and RPG's didn't sell as well.

But then the Japanese also thought their RPG's were too complex for Americans for some reason. Guess they didn't realize games like Wizardy and Ultima were American.

Tidus' outfit literally drove me crazy. What were they thinking when they designed it?? And it didn't look very comfy either...

Lol!

As much bad rep as final fantasy X gets, tidus was actually a much better character the locke, squall, zidane, fighter, and Vann. I mean ugh vann.

but like on Final Fantasy 7...the way its going you could see a Cait Sith Casino game

just let it end. It's more like FInal Fantasy 7-9001

When I think about it,

-Cloud's weapons are way too heavy according to the amount of meat on him. He's got scrawny arms so how can he wield a large sword with due speed and precision?

-Zidane had a tail...'nuff said...

-Vaan's abs look like they were penciled in and are smudging. (Yes, I own the game and his name is spelled with two "a"s)

-Tidus had weird fashion sense and kept dying easily in the game.

Squall and the gunblade he uses are about as close to real as you can get. It's possible to make a gunblade capable of actually cutting. Firing, no.

In addition, Squall has the best fashion sense out of any of the other characters you mentioned. Leather jacket, white undershirt, black jeans, shoes/boots (I can't really tell), a chain, and a belt with some decent-looking hair.

The gloves are slightly over the top but I can understand why he uses them...You could get callouses and/or blisters on your hands from wielding the gunblade too often for long periods of time.

in responce to sataned, it doesnt suck. its actually pretty good with the materia fusion and mini missions and what not. u even get a cell phone type thingy...and...uknow what...just look it up somewhere cuz it is a really good game :)

They should have just stopped at the original VII.

You are a delusional twit to think that the game is good.

Materia was not meant to be fused, just split after mastering one. All games have side-quests. Cellphones in a world that really wasn't that technologically advanced doesn't make sense. I doubt anyone would give a crap about it.

Good game? Yeah, okay.

Crisis Core was good game but...I don't know, it seems like it could have been better. I liked most of the stuff that was in the game but I did not get much of a kick out of it. I feel as if I would have enjoyed it more if it was on the PS3 or something or made into a movie like Advent Children (with all the cut scenes, they might as well have made a movie and called it a day:rolleyes:).

Um...what? We are talking about the same thing right? Look, I love FF7 as well, it was an awesome game. I tried to like Crisis Core, I really did until the awful truth struck me deep inside. It was garbage.

Sure it looked pretty, it sounded pretty, but that doesn't mean that in it's whole that it was great. It sucked. I'm sorry. It's games like this that carry the name FFVII that makes me scared for a remake. I'm really glad I didn't pay money for that game because I'd just be irate. Thank you modded PSP. ^^

I feel the same way as you do. Screw that stupid materia fusion crap.

I understand if people want to know more about Zack but COME ON!! It's like they threw random crap in a bag, shook it up, and had one of the employees pull it out. Genesis? Materia Fusion? Angeal? Why is it that I'm finding out all this crap out now around 12 years later from when I first played the game? My heart's broken...that's all I gotta say.

I thought they where making a remake of 7 for the ps3?
Or where they just saying that if you play FF:7 it looks slightly better?
Anyways,
FF7:Crisis Core
was okay.
I mean the gameplay was alright
But the story was phenomenal
It ties 7 together
And it really is sad.
Especially the end
Though that is my opinion.

Several points:

1) Final Fantasy VII is an overexposed slab of expired beef at the moment. Wait a few years then rerelease it on the PSP.

2) Rerelease FF IX. All y'all is just haters. That game was one of the best in the series, but because the main character wasn't emo and the graphics were more cartoony a lot of people dismissed it as inferior. The story goes deeper and is generally better-written than both of its PSX predecessors, yet everybody overlooks it. About the only bad part about it is the final boss.

3) Crisis Core is fun for non-sexual fanservice purposes and pretty much nothing else. Being able to watch Zack's story would have been preferable to actually having to PLAY Zack's story, however. The game wasn't grand by any means, but if you find it for 20 bucks and have 20 bucks to spare I'd say pick it up.



So it was written, so it shall be done. Go now, all of you, and enact my will.

ok, last thing im going to put on this thread.

FF7: i dont give a damn bout what anyone else thinks, this is a great game. sure the graphics were a little sucky, but it was released in like 1993, so what do u expect. the emo characters are a little quirky and its annoying when people obsess over them but whatever, do what u gotta do.

Crisis Core: watching zacks story is preferable to playing it but it was still a good ride. there are a few tear jerking scenes and it also gives aerith (or aeris..whatever) a little more backround. again, dont care if u hated it or not its a good way to kill some time if u have it and i definitly did not regret playing it.

thats it, thankyou ^^

SquareEnix is running a beautiful thing into the ground and it's not cool anymore. It use to mean somethiing, but now it's just "ZOMG, I NEEDZ MOAR MUNNIES! QUIK, MAKE NU FF7!!" It's pathetic...SquareEnix is just re-make city and the garbage they're pumping out these days isn't worth what SquareSoft worked so hard to achieve.

Thank you. I'm so glad I'm not the only one. FFIX was a great break from, I would hate to say it, the emo characters. It was great in 7 because Cloud was a effed up individual, it was perfect in 8 because Squalls hormones are all out of wack and he's an angsty teenager. It works. Zidane was an awesome character, tail or no tail. People don't get the fact about the big head/little bodies bit though. Before 8, that's what characters looked like on screen. Big heads and little bodies. FFIX was SqaureSoft's return to their roots with the series and they were underrated in their endeavors.


3) Crisis Core is fun for non-sexual fanservice purposes and pretty much nothing else. Being able to watch Zack's story would have been preferable to actually having to PLAY Zack's story, however. The game wasn't grand by any means, but if you find it for 20 bucks and have 20 bucks to spare I'd say pick it up.

I hated it. It sucked. Who the hell is Genesis? Who is Angeal? What the hell is materia fusion? I agree with you on the fact that it's better to watch Zack's story. FFVII: Last Order touched my heart more than Crisis Core. Short, sweet, to the point and not to mention...the truth. It's what happened, it's the way SquareSoft wrote it, please keep it that way. It's tedious and it's repetitive. I tried to like it, I tried to force myself to like it because of the namesake, but I couldn't lie to myself anymore. In my opinion, I wish SquareEnix would just leave FFVII alone. The horse is dead, stop beating it. Or else remake FFVII with their gambit systems and please the masses and then leave it alone.

What sucks more...
SquareEnix isn't done raping yet.
They're making another FFVII spin-off.
