    Decent story, but extremely boring to play.

    The Last Remnant

    Decent story, but extremely boring to play.

    This is a square enix game, so it has some Final Fantasy polish to it, in the graphics and sound department. The environments are VERY similiar to FFXII for the PS2. Thats what this game reminded me of off the bat. As yo... Read Full Review

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

    A great game no doubt, but not all its cracked up to be.

    Yes, the game has great graphics, and yes, it tells an interesting story for fans of Final Fantasy and especially fans of FF7. But the game is pretty short for RPG standards, clocking in around 10 hours for the main ques... Read Full Review
