For me, the best video game remasters manage to strike a specific balance. They bring together quality of life improvements on the technical level, that makes it enjoyable to play next to modern games, while still capturing the experience we remember. While Crystal Chronicles looks decent, the gameplay feels like a step backwards through time in the worst way. 

With no quality of life updates to mention (even more bizarre considering the few delays it had) and a multiplayer system that’s more frustrating than useful, it pains me to say that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles isn’t worth picking up. As one of my favorite games when I was in high school, it’s frustrating to see the Remaster get so much wrong.
