Critical Mode is the hardest difficulty in this game. In order to unlock this trophy, you need to Complete All Storylines in Critical Mode. You must finish Terra, Ventus, Aqua’s story, Final Episode and Secret Episode in Critical Mode.
It sounds hard but to be honest, the only hard part here is the beginning of each of the character’s story. When you get a decent level, better commands and abilities then the rest of the game is not that hard anymore.
When you reach Radiant Garden for every character, we highly recommend spending some time here on this world melding the commands and abilities specified below to make the rest of the game easier. You will also gain a good amount of levels while doing that.
Possible Recipe: Fire Strike (Lv3) + Fira (Lv3)
Possible Recipe: Thundara (Lv3) + Fire Dash (Lv3)
These two are going to be your main attack commands. It’s up to you on which element you prefer to use. Both are pretty good damage dealers even during boss battles. When you have melded these two, you can just buy additional copies from the Moogle shop. We recommend having four copies of any of these two.
Triple Firaga (Aqua Only)
Possible Recipe: Firaga (Lv4) + Firaga (Lv4)
Triple Blizzaga (Aqua Only)
Possible Recipe: Bllizaga (Lv4) + Blizzaga (Lv4)
We only use these ones for boss battles.
Possible Recipe: Thundara (Lv3) + Thundara (Lv3)
Possible Recipe: Zero Gravira (Lv3) + Zero Gravira (Lv3)
Possible Recipe: Magnera (Lv3) + Magnera (Lv3)
These spells are what you can call your "crowd controller" magic commands. You can defeat countless mobs in a matter of seconds with these spells in your arsenal.
Possible Recipe: Cura (Lv3) + Cura (Lv3)
This is basically your healing magic. It’s good to have two copies.
Renewal Block (Terra, Ventus)
Possible Recipe: Curaga (Lv4) + Block (Lv3)
Renewal Barrier (Aqua)
Possible Recipe: Curaga (Lv4) + Barrier (Lv3)
With this kind of defense command, you can recover a bit of HP when you successfully guard an enemy attack.
