I remember wasting days of my life on this game in my younger days. By far has always been my favorite final fantasy in the series, and is still to date one of the best RPGs of all time. Two thumbs up! any RPG fan should play this game if they haven't already!
I have played, beaten, and since replayed the orginal FF VI almost 5 times now. Still to this day, FFVI is one of my most favored games that has ever been released. There are very few things wrong with this title, and none of them make me change my mind from my 10 score.
The soundtrack or score is still amazing, but a little off. Read the critic review from IGN to know more, and there isn't enough freshness. The game does what it always did, and that is in no way a bad thing, but it would have been nice to see a little more inavation.
That is a hard thing to ask, however, from a game that is already the singular RPG that people think of, that is beyond FF VII for some reason, when someone mentions "Classic RPG's". FF IV is my favorite game of all time, but this is a close second.
If you played the orginal version of this game, you are in for a treat. If you are just expierencing the magic that is FF VI for the first time, the expierence may not be as special because the over-use of so many RPG character traits now days has really made the RPG gerene into some what of a joke, but this is the game that really invented those in the first place. So if you are just getting this, it will still be one of the best games you ever play, and maybe even the best that you can get for the GBA. Check out FF IV on DS if you want the best remake of that, but this is still one of the best games of all time.

This was the second Final Fantasy Game i had ever played, of course back then it was Final Fantasy III, I'm Far from an old dude, but i fell in love with this game, i have probably spent more hours of my life playing this particular game, than any other game on the market, in any genre. of course, i have played through most other final fantasy games, as well as other unrelated RPGs. while many of them have notable, even outstanding qualities, there is nothing i like more than bundling up and sitting down with this game. i've yet to play the version on the DS.. err.. GBA, but i look forward to receiving it in the mail soon. Fantastic soundtrack, i must say, I find it to be very memorable. And there is so much depth to the story, it really touches my heart. Every character you play has a rich history and a unique personality. It Really brings you in and you start to Care about the characters right from the start. i really could go into details, but i hate giving away spoilers to games as much as a book or a movie. oh by the way, i still advocate reading books (but I think of this game like an interactive book. )
so in closing, if you are a fan of the final fantasy series, then this is a good game to add to your video gaming resume.
Oh.... Locke is My favorite Character (if i had to choose)
