Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is both a remake and a remaster of the classic PlayStation Portable game, as it updates the graphics of that game massively, overhauls its combat system, and throws in a few new ideas into the mix as well. It’s a more digestible Final Fantasy game owing to its existence as a PSP original, but it’s an essential chapter in the tale of Cloud Strife as it shines a light on his mentor Zack Fair and his nemesis Sephiroth.

“Much like protagonist Zack Fair himself, the story of the self-proclaimed country-boy-turned-SOLDIER-First-Class is not one shrouded in mystery,” Jess Howard wrote in GameSpot’s Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion review. “If you’ve engaged with Final Fantasy VII or any of its various spin-offs, prequels, remakes, or animated movies, chances are you understand the weight of his legacy–which is, coincidentally, only rivaled by the weight of his sword. However, if you’re looking for the definitive way to experience it, look no further than Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion.”
