Junctioning GFs with teenage angst! PlayStation Cor 13 (173311)
It's a love/hate relationship. PlayStation NatsFan (131)
Not as Good as FF7 but still a good game. PlayStation Attila (495)
J-RPG's have a place in the PC platform Windows John Franco (161)
Worst RPG I've ever played when I played it the first 4 times. Best RPG I've ever played after the 5th try... PlayStation Indra is engaged (19925)
A definite game that marks a millennium. Windows MAT (94106)
Possibly the most underrated game ever PlayStation Sam Tinianow (98)
Like any true work of art...It only gets better with age. PlayStation Edward Beezy (38)
Final Fantasy meets Dawson's Creek with 112471389 hours of non-interactive videos! DUCK AND COVER!!! PlayStation Zovni (9332)
One of the best RPGs of the PlayStation. Everyone has their own opinion, but most (not all) who hate this game are just over-the-top! PlayStation Reborn_Demon (124)
