Comment:"Surface wear to disc and slight wear to case, otherwise very good condition."

A triumphant return from a monster-infested forest marks the completion of the 16-year-old hero's coming-of-age ceremony. However, the hero's joy is short-lived as a young village girl is found to be afflicted by a mysterious illness known as "crystal sickness." Determined to obtain the cure, the hero steps out of the secluded village for the first time, only to discover a world in which crystals are merely artifacts of the past and no longer exist...

More than just the latest chapter in the Final Fantasy saga, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Echoes of Time is an innovative new concept in multiplayer gaming that enables Wii and DS users to play side by side for the first time. This breakthrough in gaming connectivity allows players on both Nintendo platforms to journey together in the fantastical action RPG flavored world of the beloved Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.

Utilising the new Square Enix Pollux cross-platform game system, Echoes of Time offers gameplay designed from the ground up to provide seamless, hassle-free in-game switching beteen single and multiplayer modes. Play anytime, anywhere, over your Nintendo Wi-Fi connection with anyone and experience a new level of connectivity previously unheard of.
  • Play anytime, anywhere, and with anyone. Multiplayer connectivity reaches new heights in Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Echoes of Time, where players can team up or compete with friends and players around the world.
  • The intuitive control scheme introduced in 'Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Ring of Fates' returns, now adapted to Wii for double the action.
  • Players can switch between single and multiplayer modes at any time while playing, enjoying two great gaming options in one integrated experience.
  • A personalised hero can be generated from a choice of the four familiar races of the series: Clavats, Lilties, Selkies or Yukes. Players joining from the Wii can also introduce their Miis to the world of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.
  • Create and customise materials, armour and equipment for characters with tailored appearances and abilities - no two heroes will be the same.
  • Players can continue to enjoy the game even after completing the main adventure, as the New Game+ feature provides increased difficulty and better items with every new round.
  • A vast selection of quests delivers hours of fun.

 final fantasty crystal chronicles echos of time

I bought this purely on the name only and that I trusted the content would be along the same vein as all the others. I've played most of the FF series on all consoles and I found it disappointing as FF games go, good for multiplayer but not really a good single player game as AI is woefully bad, and short story.

Also this version of the game is a straight emulation of the handheld version with no extra tweeks or improvements graphicly or otherwise.
Another point is the screen's split just like the handheld version and can be frustrating in the heat of battle with no fullscreen. If you're expecting a true FF epic I'd wait for the other consoles new title or the dedicated Wii FF later this year. If you have a handheld console I'd play this one on there as it has been designed prodomently for that platform being its sequel.

 Absolutely AMAZING

well, it's not one of the best FF games out there, but you should consider giving it a shot. It is quite fun, though i'm not sure what twistednibble is saying about FF and multiplayer seeing as there are more FF single players than multiplayer and they're excellent.

 Don't buy the Wii version

I loved rings of fate and this is the same game setting as rings of fate. I bought it for the Wii - however - do not - the dual screens make things overly complex and hard to see - despite the adjustments. This game is far better suited for the DS which I have nearly completed and found thoroughly enjoyable :)

This game can be described in 3 words: What went wrong?

The first major flaw is the graphics. They look like they've been pulled straight from the Nintendo 64 - good graphics for their time, but not for these days. I think we're past the immobile faces and block hands. The gameplay graphics are ok, but the cut-scene graphics are terrible - I think the graphics have actually regressed.

Also, the split screen idea on tv is terrible - you have to share the screen between the menu and the actual gameplay. These go no bigger than half the screen each - not even that, really. You have a border around the edge that cuts down on the size of the screens again. Not even the cut-scenes are full screen! You can barely read or see what you are doing.

To play multiplayer - which is the main reason why I brought this game because the previous CC game was brilliant for playing with friends - you need a DS INCLUDING DS CC Echoes of Time Game. Notice that it never states that you need the DS game anywhere on the packaging.

The reason why I gave this game 2 stars instead of 1, is because the storyline is ok. It warrants at least one star.

If you want a CC game, invest in the gamecube version and a gamecube controller/Gameboy Advance [or SP]. The graphics seem to be BETTER in the older game, the story is more interesting, and you can actually play multi-player without having to buy a £30 DS game.
