So, I had never particularly thought about how a prequel should end itself. Having finished Crisis Core, I must say that the correct way it to say "to be continued in [name of thing that we're prequelling]".
Overall the game way pretty good. Unfortunately, the optional sidequesting led to the strange occurrance whereby I defeated all of the final bosses forms without being hit
once. Zero damage. I would say that I was probably over-leveled for the encounter (level 73), plus it probably didn't help that I had maxed out my strength. Plot-wise, however, it actually makes Final Fantasy VII make a hell of a lot more sense. Cloud's backstory vis-a-vis Zack was always quite muddled, probably due to the fact that Cloud's memory of events involving Zack were also represented as muddled. This led, however, to a problem of the backstory really missing a cohesive line that was "canonical" in some sense.
In a realted note, Aeris dies. If you were unaware of this, too bad. Final Fantasy VII is 11 years old.
