Crazy Credits

After the credits, we go down to the cave where Weiss is lying dead. He is approached by an unidentified figure who picks him up, and tells him that their work is not done yet, addressing him as brother. A wing then appears out of the figure's back, and he flies away, carrying Weiss with him. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (2007) reveals this character to be Genesis, a precursor of Sephiroth.

You're kidding, surely?
12 June 2007 | by IsakawaSee all my reviews

I absolutely and sincerely hope this is not the shape of things to come. I saw this played from beginning to end - twice - and dared not pick it up for myself. When I did, I can assure you I put it down again, sharply. Absolutely the worst kind of spin-off is one that does not draw on the original material to any level other than a superficial one, and this is about as superficial as they come. Set in Midgar and thereabouts - fine. Includes characters in a cameo form - okay. ... what? Is that it? Format is dreadful, voice-acting atrociously bad; I mean, does anyone actually finish a bloody sentence!!? Cringe-worthy from start to finish, with some pretty, mo-cap CGI FMV sequences thrown around.

Diabolical, SquareEnix. Fo'shame!
