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!)

The story in this game could not have enough good things said about it! You instantly fall in love with the characters and care about their journey and their goals. Which is essential in an RPG. The turn based fighting is also awesome because you can customize how you fight and how each character fights. So much fun, and if you like RPGs then I say buy this one!

First, I have read a few reviews where people have stated this is a remake. That is false information. This is the same game as before. SE did a terrible job on the port and while it's understandable to lower scores for it, I can't as it's my opinion this game should be played by anyone that is a fan of games.
The modding community has helped elevate this poor port and it really makes the game fun. Try playing with "Tifa's bootleg".
This game has everything and besides graphics, the game is timeless. The story is phenominal and you get completely sucked in. Battle system is fun as well as maxing out your characters.
While for some the graphics would be the turn off to buying this, I would highly suggest buying this game. After a few hours of story you could care less about the graphics.

It has been said a lot about this game.After years Square finally made a remake, which doesn't look any better than previous release, even music has no quality as original psx version. Graphics of characters was and is horrible, you can't get into game with Lego characters, sorry. Fortunately there is a mod who can fix it, as well as music, which after months is finally patched officially by Square. So before first launch if you have some patience game could look pretty good after few fixes.
I don't like fact that first few long hours you can't get out of the city, which is unlikely comparing to other FF games. There is more text than actual gameplay here, so forget about any freedom, you stuck here for some time. The story is not great as many say, but it's generally ok, has some nice twists, but that's it. In terms of gameplay materia is a nice tool for customization characters. It wasn't a bad idea, unfortunately game is not challenging at all expect bonus bosses, who are at the other hand extremely difficult.
Price is probably too high for such an old game without anything new. Only for people who haven't already played (if there are such) it. Then it's probably worth to see for yourself what's this all fuss is about.
