Guardian Cross



    Guardian Cross's review

    Published: 2013-11-26, by Peter Warrior.

    Square's own CCG

    • Final Fantasy-like design
    • Non interactive battles
    • All the typical flaws of the genre

    "Final Fantasy collectible card game"

    Square couldn't resist the temptation of creating a collectible card game on its own, and here's Guardian Cross.

    First off, if you like Final Fantasy-like design, go ahead. This game is made by some FF designers, so many monsters and the overall tone will look familiar to you. However, this doesn't mean that famous FF characters have been featured, so look not for Cloud or Tiffa or whoever.

    In order to get the cards, there's a mini game called Hunting Grounds, which works like a sniping game. Once you got cards to build up a team, you can fusion and upgrade them, sacrificing the less powerful ones for those you like most sake.

    Battles, when your team meets an other player's or AI's, usually in some sort of a quest, are automatically solved by the game, and there's little, if any interactivity with the player. Everything's decided beforehand when you choose which cards will take part in the action. Some cards get bonuses for being aligned along others, and there's the strategy. Of course, some cards are more powerful than other per se.

    In conclusion, it's a good CCG game and has Square's mark on it. If you like this kind of games, this is a high quality one, though it doesn't bring anything new to the genre and the few new features are more a drawback than an advantage.
