Weak

didnt quite make it

i decided to give this game a whirl. i figured it had to be good if they made 13 of them. this title didnt quite cut it for me. the missions are very vague in where to go. and they name places that take hours to find. and even longer, since every five feet you find your team matched against six monsters. this game was just too confusing for me, as i always say, if you're a big time RPG geek. you might enjoy this game more, but i couldnt bear it. 4/10

other than that.. i don't see anything interesting.. the items are expensive.. and gameplay is very simple.. time consuming.. ideal for those who like long play time..but not for me..

I figured I would rent this game and see where the Final Fantasy series all started. Prior to this, I had played FF7, 8, 9, X, 11-Online (for a few months), 12, 13, and Tactics. It's a good game for it's time (but not as great as other RPGs that also came out around that time).

I would not recommend this game for anyone who gets annoyed easily. There's no field maps, very little information on where you need to go and do, and a massive amount of random battles. I don't mind random battles, but when you're trying to back track through multiple floors to turn in a quest and further the story line and you have to fight a battle every 5 steps, it gets pretty obnoxious.

The only reason I only played this game for about 8 hours, is because early in the game after you beat a certain boss, a dungeon opens up. I figured this dungeon opening up was the next part of the story line since this game tells you next-to-nothing about where to go. Anyways, this dungeon is completely optional. And the only way to leave the dungeon after entering is to beat one of the bosses in it. Unfortunately, the monsters inside were just as easy as monsters I was fighting in the previous areas, so I figured I was on-track. Boy was I wrong, when I got to the bosses they all had about 4k health and would 1-shot my entire party with a single AoE spell. I have a habit of frequently saving, and I saved over my file inside the dungeon, so unless I want to grind for hours and level up and hope my cruddy gear can beat these bosses, I'm screwed.

Anyways, if you rent this game like I did, you only need to play it for 2 hours to know exactly what the entire game is like. Would not play it again.
