The RPG Worth Waiting For

This was actually the very first Final Fantasy game I ever played. The closest I got to it was Kingdom Hearts (which really wasn't that close). Oh, how I wish I had played it sooner.

Story: 10/10 I didn't get far enough to find the whole depth of the story, but what I saw of it I really liked. Basically there's this dark knight named Cecil (pronounced the British way) who, along with his friend Kain, is under the rule of who was thought to be a benevolent king. However, recent actions of the king seem to have proved otherwise. First, he sent them to destroy an innocent country for only personal gain (before the events of the actual story), then sent them to yet another innocent village that the king thought was defying them (Cecil and Kain thought they had to go kill some kind of monster) by setting it on fire and killing a young child's mother and mother's dragon. Sadly, I didn't get any farther than that. The only thing I didn't like is that it seemed like a lot of people thought it was evil that knights were being trained in dark magic, which I didn't see the problem with. All it is is a different type of element, after all.

Gameplay: 10/10 The gameplay was the classic RPG style of running around and kicking monster butt. There was only one problem I had with it: it was near impossible to find a save point, so whenever I died I had to start the entire game over. If you buy this game (which you should), be sure to spend all your money on on potions (healing items) and phoenix down (resurrecting items).

Music: 10/10 The music was really cool and went right along with the game style itself. Music is one of the things I love about games.

Graphics: 8/10 Graphics is not usually something I care about. The graphics were good, but a bit chunky. Whenever the characters mouths moved, they just sort of opened and closed them like fish.

Overall, this game is awesome with a deep storyline and engaging gameplay. Perfect for any RPG lover, and it takes one to kno

I was always an RPG player, but I never really played Final Fantasy before. Thats when I played Final Fantasy IV, and after ten minutes I could never stop playing this game for 3 months! The graphics of this game are like movie graphics, and I esspecially love the voice backround during cutscreens. And the music, most beautiful thing I heard. But don't forget the Aw-inspiring battles! So many chocies on offense and defence! I reccomend this game to DS,Pokemon, or RPG fans!
