Dated design, clunky multiplayer systems, and unacceptable load times make playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition a terrific chore.

The original was hardly viewed as a classic even at the time and while a lot of work has gone into this remaster it can't hide the game's intrinsic shallowness and repetition.

I imagine Square Enix will get the online working consistently in due time, negating a huge chunk of this review. But even if it does someday become consistently available, I worry it won't greatly improve on the final product. Too much of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is tied to an experience that is no longer available. The moment in time that made the GameCube original possible has long passed, and trying to capture that nostalgia with so many missing pieces, is a fool's errand.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition retains plenty of its original charms, enhanced by updated visuals and audio, but with its defining local co-op diluted by clunky online play, it simply doesn't stake a strong enough case for its return.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered is a lot of things, but a classic is not one of them.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is perfect for those who want to preserve the original game, but have too much elements that are aged badly.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was never the best Final Fantasy. We can't even say that it was the best spin-off of the series. However, it was and still is a very special and magical game. And it offers a more than remarkable cooperative experience. Back in the day, the limitation of having to use multiple GBAs for multiplayer was a handicap for many. The current problem is that the online of this remaster does not quite solve it, putting obstacles through an absurd progression system. Despite everything, it is still a very fun and addictive title. As a remaster, I could be more careful.
