SummaryPossibly the most underrated game ever
The GoodThere's Character development! YESSSSSS!!!!! That is, where as in most RPGs, the dialog of the characters and whatnot seems to pretty much the same for each one. In this game, however, they have very distinctive personalities. The graphics are much better than any of its predecessors (the characters have MOUTHS). Also, this game is a pleasant break from all the usual corny RPG stuff, like "chosen ones" and prophecies of great warriors who will save the World and crystals of elements and such. Of course, for those of us who really enjoy that, I hear that FF9 has plenty and spare. This is one of those games that I play for many reasons, but mostly to find out what happens next.
The BadThe junction system is practically rocket science. Materia and espers were much easier. I also spent a good deal of time figuring out what makes your SeeD rank go up and down. I guess the worst part of this game is its complexity.
