FF Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time Copy Protection Methods

Another day, and it’s another look at the copy protection placed on yet another Square Enix game for the Nintendo DS. This time is the brand new Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time. Now, rather than have you adrift a sea (download a copy of Dragon Quest to find out), the developers chose a two step approach should you choose to download the ROM and run it.

First up, the game will not allow you to save at the check point:

And if you actually try to be a smart-aleck and forgo saving altogether (with all due respect to those who can finish a Final Fantasy game on the DS in a single sitting, I think that is totally nuts and a damn good case of nothing better to do), the game will just stop, and right before you get a taste of combat too…so near but yet so far! 😛

As always, if you really want to enjoy and appreciate a beautiful game like this, well, buy an original copy! It certainly saves the hassle of going through all this shit in the first place. Interested in purchasing the game? Click here for details.
