Crimson Gem Saga - Short Review

User Score

Presentation - 8.0
Gameplay - 8.5
Value - 7.5
Good game that utilizes the old school RPG battle system.


Good Characters

Good Battle System

Humor - This game has some pretty funny moments.

Solid OST - The main theme rocks.


Forgettable Story

Skill tree system - You can learn basically 2 or 3 abilities on your characters for the entire game, but in the end stretch it is just one constant grind.

Items/Weapons are way to exspensive.

Horrible, horrible HORRIBLE cliffhanger ending - I am actually in favor of these but this one sucked.


Difficulty - Not difficult as in extremely OMG hard. Where things are litterally impossible. But for like 75% of the game every single fight is an uphill battle that takes along time. I like a challenge, but every fight doesn't need to be that long and annoying.


Overall it is a pretty solid game and I would recommend it to anyone who likes JRPGs. As as side note, it is pretty funny to note that the two main characters of the game are the same voice actors for Snow+Serah in FFXIII.

That is so true. Its sad that many won't play it because it got absolutely zero hype or advertisement. You couldn't even reserve the title before it came out at gamestop :(

Best hope that this game at least sells a few hundred thousand copies lifetime. The Youtube Walkthroughs are rather populated with fans of the game.
