    thought i'd start a thread where people are'nt ranting about the 'security' issue and actually discuss about the game.

    OMG HOW AWESOME IS THIS GAME ?!
    I've finally found the DS RPG i've been looking for xD.
    I've never played the other GC Cyrstal Chronicles before but i really like the DS one.

    Graphical character customisation & item synthesis > all

    xDD .

    We seriously do not need any more threads on this game.

    But to be fair, they're all about the security issues. This is a thread on the actual game.

    I'm really enjoying it. Really takes me back to some good Secret of Mana times. I could stand for a quicker magic system, but the enemies are dumb as nails so it doesn't matter too much.

    I love the game so far, my only gripe with it is no wi-fi multiplayer so i'm missing out on a huge portion of the game =\

    @DarkUli
    You don't really use the stylus very much at all. Touch screen is really only for selecting which Magicite/Potion you want to use, and switching characters.

    My only beef with the game is the AI for your teammates. Dumb as nails doesn't even begin to describe. They should at least use their tribal abilities on their own.

    Stay on topic, please. If you need some help with that, use this thread. If you don't want to search the forums around before posting, that's fine, but try not to disrupt other topics with your questions [​IMG]

    From what I've played (five or six areas with bosses) it's very easy. But don't let that get you down, it's a GREAT game.

    This game honestly surprised the crap out of me. I picked it up for $30 as I was dumping a finished dusty DS game with zero replay value.

    The opening movie was cleaner than past SquareEnix efforts so I actually bothered to watch the entire bit, and it was cleaner both in audio visual so it got me curious. I remembered the rants of the FF4 Remake quality, and I'd swear this game is the testbed.

    Upon entering the game opens up with a massive fully spoken run of dialogue and in game animation of the characters getting basically a first lesson in life. From there you end up doing that first mission and the detailing everywhere in town, your home, the caves, whatever is notably more detailed than what FF3 DS offered really showing off the revisions of that engine from FF3->DQM Joker->this game. Every monster motion is fluid, lots of fluffy magical things going on with intricate detail you'd expect out of a very late era Playstation game say like Final Fantasy 9. The music, the sound effect, and the already mentioned verbals are very clear, crisp, no hissiness to it at all which is nice.

    Gameplay quite excellent for sure, controls are smooth and top notch, but the one thing that is a bit odd is the need at times to touch the magicite and drag it into the open area so you can toss it as you got to keep that stylus in between two fingers as you play. Unlike most games it's not clunky and as of yet 3 stages into it (in the mountains I am now) it hasn't got me slapped around yet. The unholy crap that made the GC game so miserable with the inability to keep magics in each stage and items, the bs of carrying the miasma jar, the overly random wretched random waste of time scenes on the map, and the rest of it...all dead. It basically is like Final Fantasy light...handled much like the bigboys, but done in an action-rpg mess more like Zelda but with a lot more depth you'd get from FF in items, gear, buy/sell, magics, etc.

    I highly recommend it...and also for those who can wrangle up some friend codes, it has a 4P online multiplayer that while I hear has a bit lower of a framerate so it can be played it supposedly is pretty damn fun as a mix of a feel with the items/upgrades/quests of say Guild Wars(very lite) combined with Zelda 4 Swords mentality of group work.

    For your information, If you hold R and tap the screen you can do a special move which does loads of damage and makes bosses a lot easier.

    I like this one but I enjoyed the original FF:CC a lot more. The miasma added in a large strategy value to the gameplay and without it makes the game too easy.

    Interesting game. Nothing really new. You can kill everything with one char. My pet rock has more AI than FFCC:RoF.
