Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time


Echoes of Time is the 4th in the Final Fantasy spin-off series Crystal Chronicles. Available on both the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii, Echoes allows multi-player connectivity between the two devices and has certain minor additions and streamlined spell...

Online multi-player with 3 other DS/Wii gamers ; Switch between solo and multi-player modes anywhere you find a crystal ; Easy to grasp weapon and spell controls ; Numerous quests ; Write your own phrases

The small dual screens are the same for the Wii & DS versions ; Basic graphics ; Online play sometimes has lag ; Online players often want to pursue different quests than you ; Can't see very far in front of you

Apart from the odd dual-screen setup, Echoes of Time is a fun little RPG that quickly draws you in with its cute little SNES-like heroes and monsters. It never gets bogged down in the spell/weapon details like, say, Sacred Angel, and the multiplayer...

‘ll be honest with you, folks–you know I always am, but this time I have to be particularly blunt about what I'm saying.  I always get a little freaked out whenever I hear about an RPG for Nintendo's Wii.  There's just something so very…not right…about...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time


Given all of the misses lately, you may not remember that Final Fantasy is a top tier franchise. While the numbered sequels never disappoint and there are the occasional spin-off surprises (Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII springs to mind), most of the...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is more than a really long title, it's also a multiplayer game with a whole host of game breaking problems. It is a game with a small cast of unlikeable characters, a boring story, lame locations and did...
