Final Fantasy is one of the longest-running series in console gaming history. There have been new Final Fantasy titles coming out continuously for more than fifteen years. Nonetheless, this is a unique moment in the history of the series. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles represents the series' return to Nintendo, a long-term partnership that vanished after Final Fantasy VI. It also represents a departure from the traditional gameplay style that has been the identifying characteristic of the series since day one. Let's face it--how many times have you heard a menu-combat system being described as "like Final Fantasy's?" Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, on the other hand, is a fast-paced, open-ended action game. You can attempt it alone, or you can play with up to three other people in a truly unique and innovative multiplayer mode that ensures cooperation.
As you make your way through the desperate world, teetering on the brink of destruction, you'll visit strange towns, learning news from the locals. You'll visit murky swamps, ancient ruins, and fiery volcanoes. You'll delve into underground fortresses, and battle your way across windy deserts. The strange travelers you'll meet on the roads may offer you dinner, or they may offer danger.
Luckily, you won't have to face this dark, dangerous world alone; you have the GameSpot game guide to Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles there to help you every step of the way. Inside you will find advice, hints, tips, and statistics to help you create your alter ego, fight your enemies, and perhaps even live to tell about it. You will find comprehensive listings of spells, items, and strategies for each and every creature you will encounter. If all of that isn't enough, a comprehensive walk-through will guide you through every room, every corridor, of every dungeon. It is written so that you can use it as a literal walk-through or as a general guide as you find your own way through the dangerous world of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.
