    I was really surprised at how much I ended up enjoying Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King.

    Spin-off games tend not to be very good. As a spin-off of a spin-off, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King (MLaaK from this point on) should by all logic be a completely terrible waste of time and money. S... Read Full Review
