Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 is the revised version of the PSP classic, which is finally appearing for modern consoles after almost 15 years. Here you can find out how long it takes you to complete Zack’s adventure and what optional content awaits you.
Season of Crisis Core: FF7 Reunion
- Story Playtime: 16 to 18 hours
- Story + main side missions: 30 hours
- 100% Completionist: 60-70 hours
- Platinum Trophy: 40-50 hours
At 16-18 hours for the main story, Crisis Core is surprisingly short compared to other JRPGs. However, the PSP roots of the game are also evident here, because the story itself was not changed in the remaster. Only the shorter loading times and skipable sequences shorten the playing time a bit.
Time waster side missions: The side missions take up quite a bit of time in Crisis Core, after all there are 300 of them. But they are all short and never last more than five minutes. But if you want all the summons, equipment slots and the best equipment in the game, you can’t avoid a few side missions.
Platinum takes time: If you want to get the platinum trophy, you have to plan a lot more playing time. For this you have to complete almost everything that the game has to offer and you can miss many trophies.
All chapters of Crisis Core: FF7 Reunion
Total there 11 chapters in Crisis Core: FF7 Reunion, counting the prologue. So after the short introduction there are 10 numbered chapters left.
How long are the chapters: The length of each chapter varies between about one to two hours if you do not complete any side missions. An exception here is the prologue, which only takes you about 20 minutes.
