Tokyo Game Show 2022 has come and gone. Some presentations like Xbox wowed viewers with a well put together show that highlighted a wide variety of games in a concise way. Others, like Square Enix, divided their presentation into multiple broadcasts with presenters that didn't offer any real insight into the games. Crisis Core FF7 Reunion was one such game that fell victim to this.
Three comedians handled the bulk of the presenting duties for Square Enix, covering Forspoken, Crisis Core, and Star Ocean. They went through set pieces of demos, offering banal observations through monotone translators.
The Crisis Core demo showed off two segments. The first was an arena fight against two creatures that resembled Oni. The second was more of a compilation of shots, showing off character interactions, summons like Cactuar and Bahamut, and the slot system.
Overall, Crisis Core looks good. It's a blend of the original PSP gameplay with updated graphics that nearly put it on par with Final Fantasy VII Remake. For those who never got to experience the prequel, it will fill in many gaps, especially with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth coming out next year.
