If you want to add a bit more pizazz to your party, now you can!" In our review of the original Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, we said "The bottom line is that Crystal Chronicles is a fun multiplayer game if you own enough GBAs. There are some problems, more than I'd like to see from Square, but overall it's a fun experience. The single player game, on the other hand, isn't nearly as fun."
