Best Game Everyone Hated But I Loved: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers


the crystal bearers


I don't know if people really hated The Crystal Bearers, but it's 67 Metacritic score is way below what I would give the game. Part of this might be because I am not as bogged down by Square using the title Final Fantasy as many reviewers seem to be.

As someone who tends to shy away from playing the Wii, even with some of the greatest games on the system, I found that the level of variety and how something new was always happening kept my glued to my controller more than almost any other Wii game. That is really saying something too, since I have come to abhor the Wii Remote and Nunchuck.
