This is the BEST game on Wii, bar none.
I have not touched any other games since buying it.
Do not believe the low ratings, this is a MUST HAVE for any Wii owner, any FF fan and any fan of FUN GAMES.
The characters and story is compelling and interesting, Layle is by no means your average introverted FF character. He is wild.
There is so much to see and do on this game it is truely incredible. I have been playing for 17 hours now and I still have litterally hundreds and hundred of things to do, including the main story.
Crystal bearers plays more like a Zelda game than anything, LOTS of side missions and secrets, you really get drawn into the game and want to become a part of it.
I am a huge fan of RPG/Adventure games and I have very high standards when it comes to being coaxed into parting with my cash for games. But this was well worth it.
People who bash this game simple have not put the time in to get used to the controls. This is a totally new and refreshing expirience, plays unlike any game you've played before. It will require practice to master the combat, which is not going to happen on the first day.
As for the camera I don't understand how anyone can say there is anything wrong with it. You can complete control over the camera functions and can position it anywhere you like. It works perfectly.
Imagine free fall sky diving while using your kinetic powers to control a gigantic machine gun to shoot dragon type creatures straight out of the air. Thats the first mission. And its replayable, as are all the missions, once you reach a certain point in the game.
BUY IT BUY IT BUT IT!
If you don't you are missing out.
The world is EMMENCE.
Unlike anything I have come across before in any game.
Just buy it and you'll see.
