My First Final Fantasyemptyhaven | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
This was one of my entry points into the RPG genre, and I could not have been more blessed to have actually played this game (the other being Chrono Trigger, an equally marvelous game that should also be required gaming).
This was Final Fantasy's entry point into the 3D realm, and they couldn't have done a better job at the time than they did with this. I'll admit, the LEGO-like 3D models are a bit jarring compared to today's standards, but it's the gameplay, the story, and the dynamic characters that really define this game—and will continue to define this game for generations to come.
The spell of charm and wonder that Final Fantasy RPGs have held over me has certainly waned over time, and I find that I visit the older games in the series over the newer titles. I would play FFIV any day over FFXIII-2. And I would certainly play FFVII without any hesitation, given the chance to do so.
If you haven't played this game, then you must have been too young. I urge you to immediately do so as soon as you can. I know it looks weird, and it's long, but it's so worth it to finish this game. People need to go back and appreciate the classics. This is a good place to start.
A true classic.Kane987245 | Dec. 5, 2014 | See all Kane987245's reviews »
It was revolutionary for it's time and brought FF into the pop-culture light and I thank it for that. However, for me it is not the greatest game ever made or of all time. Heck, for me it is not even the best game in the series. That is not to take anything away from this game because it is not meant to. Buy this game because it is great, because it is a classic, and buy it because it still provides the gamer with a unique experience one cannot nor will forget. It may not be the best for me, but it could be for you and after all it is indeed one of the best in the series. Pick it up and enjoy it for all that it is. And watch out for flying swords.
Great story, great rpgVisicko | Nov. 12, 2014 | See all Visicko's reviews »
An epic story told in a rpg form. I'd say this is a nice game for people to get introduced to rpg, as it is a little basic in this sense. The graphics may look a bit outdated but they deliver what they are supposed to just fine. Music is great, it has some of the most mythic tunes in videogames. The materia system is nice, as is the fighting system in general. You have tons of locations to visit,many many different things to do and master and definitely lots and lots of hours of fun ahead of you. And a long,intriguing plot full of secrets, twists and charismatic characters to discover and enjoy.
Possibly the Greatest Game Ever Madelizardspenguin | Oct. 2, 2014 | See all lizardspenguin's reviews »
This was my favorite game from my childhood days. I would love to see them do a remake of this game with next-gen graphics. Maybe someday... Until then, this game still feels just as masterful now as it did when I played it 16 years ago. Great story with characters that drive the game. A very well made fighting system with the Summons, Materia, and having to collect AP to master them. A nice sized open world map that gives you room to explore. This game just had it all. I recommend this game to all RPG fans for sure.

So, I know nostalgia can get in the way and all, but in all seriousness, this game is amazing! Not only is the story one of the greatest (so good it took me multiple play-throughs to fully understand it), the gameplay is also very addicting! It uses a turn-based attack system that includes basic attacks, magic, summons, and limit breaks(ultimate attacks of each different character). Also, the materia aspect of the game is crazy! It has soooo many different types, with each type being able to work with the other types to change how they each are used. It's pretty mind-bending stuff, and kept me occupied for quite a while. Obviously, and it's been said millions of times. the only downer about this game is the graphics. However, it almost adds to the feel of the game. It was the beginning of this type of art style, and this makes it have a sort of retro type feel about it. All in all, it's a great game, and certainly worth whatever sale you might see (steam brought it down to $4 once, get it!)
