Despite not having fully finished Crisis Core. I found the game really uplifting, primarily due to the fact that Final Fantasy - one of my favourite games of all time - has been revisited somewhat. The action is not turn-based but follows more in the footsteps of Final Fantasy 12. My only gripe is the lack of control with summoning, and limit breaks. These and any bonus upgrades, being controlled by a lucky 7 fruit machine style system. The cut scenes are spectacular, and the opening visuals are top-notch. Probably one of or the best games available on the PSP.
