How many missions are in Crisis Core?

Turns out there are hundreds of Crisis Core missions, so we’re here to explain all that and how long it takes to beat the game too

Crisis Core missions - various characters against a bright blue sky with spotted clouds. In the front, a dark haired, large-sword-on-back-having man with bare arms and firm black armour. On the right, a long haired sephiroth -- hair white, shoulders steely -- and then in back Cloud, blonde haired and slender compared to the others.

Crisis Core missions are the, uhh, core of the game. Well, they’re the core of any videogame, right? That’s true, but when a game has hundreds of missions, like Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, it can all be a little intimidating.

So, how many missions are in Crisis Core? And how long does Crisis Core take to beat? Well, we’ve got our biggest calculators out of our saggiest pockets to bring you some answers.

How many missions are in Crisis Core?

There are 300 missions in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion. This sounds like a lot, but when you know that missions are actually just the optional stuff, 300 missions is an unholy amount of extra content.

In reality, a lot of these missions are pretty speedy affairs – simple combat challenges, for example – so aren’t going to demolish all that much time. Still, 300 hundred is a big number, so you better have some time on your hands.
