100 (Jun 17, 2009)
En voilà un titre 16 bits qui défit le passage des années. En voilà un qui doit absolument figurer dans le palmarès de tout aficionado de RPG. Personnages charismatiques, scénario béton, rythme effréné: Final Fantasy VI est sûrement le meilleur jeu de rôle en 2D sur console.
WiiDefunct Games (Jul 05, 2011)
In some ways Final Fantasy III is the perfect ending for the Wii's Virtual Console. Not that there aren't more games worth adding to the service, but this is the perfect game if you want to go out on a high note. Best of all, like the Virtual Console it plays on, Final Fantasy III is the end of an era.
SNESLegendra (May 07, 2005)
Par son scénario unique qui nous fait vraiment ressentir le parfum d'une quête de la plus haute importance, sa galerie de personnages tous plus attachants les uns que les autres, ses mélodies inoubliables, Final Fantasy VI est pour moi comme pour d'autres, le meilleur RPG de la création.
SNESTotal! (Germany) (Jan, 1995)
Alle in allem darf Final Fantasy III wohl zu recht als das beste Rollenspiel auf dem SNES bezeichnet werden.
100 (Sep 02, 2009)
It's the combination of things that Final Fantasy III does so well--the multiple stories that it tells and experiences that it offers--that makes it not only a defining moment in the series, but an important piece of role-playing history.
SNESRetrogaming History (Dec 05, 2008)
Final Fantasy VI è un raffinato capolavoro sotto tutti gli aspetti ludici ed estetici. A distanza di 14 anni dalla sua uscita detta ancora legge, sicuramente almeno per quanto concerne la cura per la narrazione e il character design andata sempre più sottotono nelle ultime uscite della saga. Detto questo non resta altro da fare che buttarsi a occhi chiusi in questo sogno senza fine di magia, lacrime e liricità.
PlayStationGamestyle (Jul 18, 2008)
This is a game that no self respecting RPG fan should be without, especially given that the SNES version never saw a European release. It's the grandfather of all modern turn-based RPGs and, whilst it might not be able to hold its own graphically any more, in terms of length and depth it's easily the equal of any RPG available. The combat works incredibly well and requires lateral thinking instead of selecting the 'attack' command ad infinitum. And the story is a cracking yarn – and that's what all good RPGs are about at the end of the day, isn't it?
Game Boy AdvanceModojo (Feb 16, 2007)
Despite the slowdown and sound quality inconsistencies, I'll still recommend FFVI to anyone who wants to play an RPG. What's even better is that it's portable. You can fight Kefka while taking a crap! What can get better than that? I'm not much of a 16-bit purist, so I actually prefer FFVI in portable form. The game itself is timeless. It's not so old that people are turned off by the primitive graphics and it has an engaging enough battle system that those new to turn based RPGs won't get bored. It still has the same fun factor as the SNES game, but now you can take it anywhere you want, so what more can I say?
Game Boy Advance1UP (Feb 09, 2007)
FFVIA is a mostly great port of a mostly great game, and that makes it entirely worth having. If this has to be the end of the GBA's lifespan, we can't think of a better way to go.
Game Boy AdvanceGameSpy (Feb 14, 2007)
If video game history were ever to be taught to children, then Final Fantasy VI should be part of the curriculum's required playing. Its characters are among the genre's most unique and memorable, while its villain is quite possibly the most well-crafted embodiment of evil in RPG history. Final Fantasy VI shows that you don't need polygons or special effects when well-paced storytelling, captivating music, and a few sprites are more than enough. If you've already played Final Fantasy VI, you may still want to go through it again on your Game Boy Advance, Micro, or DS. You'll laugh, you'll reminisce, and the feeling of nostalgia will remind you why it is you love this hobby. On the other hand, if you've never played Final Fantasy VI before, consider yourself lucky. You're in for a special treat.
Game Boy AdvanceG4 TV: X-Play (Mar 20, 2007)
Final Fantasy VI Advance not only set the bar for RPG’s in the 16-bit era, it sets a standard that few games reach in the modern era of gaming. This game won’t win any beauty pageants, but easily makes up with any shortcomings with story and customizations. It’s a shame that more people think of seven when it comes to Final Fantasy instead of six. With new technology leading the way, stories took a simpler step back instead of keeping to keeping to six’s radical roots. Perhaps we would all be better off if our villains wore clown make-up instead of eyeliner.
Game Boy AdvanceGamerDad (Apr 10, 2007)
The game features a wonderful steampunk story and a huge cast of memorable characters which would be enough to power an excellent game. But it is more than the story and characters, it is the gameplay as well. The combat system has been greatly expanded to include real-time as well as turn-based elements, and the strategic nature of the battles is increased by this. There are more skills and tools at your disposal, making combat much less of a grind through all of the random battles. This is just an overall excellent game that has surpassed Final Fantasy IV to become my favorite in the series ... so far. And while this is the end of the line for the GBA contribution to the series, I can't wait for whatever comes next!
SNESRPGamer (Nov 11, 2004)
Of all the many, wonderful RPGs to grace the SNES, the best of all was Square's Final Fantasy VI, released in the U.S. as Final Fantasy III. It delivered on all levels, and set the bar so high in some regards that it still has not been surpassed to this day.
Game Boy (Feb 23, 2007)
In the end, Final Fantasy VI is as non-traditional as you can get within the Final Fantasy series while still maintaining the recognizable qualities that make it a Final Fantasy game. The game looks and feels like a standard SNES-era, 16-bit RPG, but in truth it is much, much more, and I'm kicking myself for avoiding the game this long. On the other hand, it was nice to play this game with a fresh set of eyes, unweighed by nostalgia. In either case, this game is a must buy for RPG enthusiasts and Final Fantasy enthusiasts alike. Those looking to recapture the love they had for their original involvement with Final Fantasy VI when it was Final Fantasy III will undoubtedly enjoy this version with its polished localization and additional challenges. And for those, like me, who never had the chance to play Final Fantasy VI in any of its previous forms, I highly recommend this. It is a true gem and an RPG that any RPG enthusiast would be proud to own.
SNESHonestGamers (Feb 16, 2006)
Final Fantasy III remains a must-play, even in today's age of polygons and FMV. Don't miss it.
SNESGamePro (US) (Nov, 1994)
RPG enthusiasts, pen-and-paper dungeon masters and hardcore role players will all be thrilled with this new adventure. It's a good thing this Fantasy isn't Final!
Game Boy AdvanceUOL Jogos (Feb 08, 2007)
Não é à toa que "Final Fantasy VI" é um dos episódios mais queridos entre os fãs da série. O game mescla uma produção caprichada e um sistema de jogo empolgante, graças à introdução dos cristais mágicos como provedores de magia e invocadores de criaturas. Ainda, traz algumas das cenas mais emocionantes da história de "Final Fantasy", que é um grande feito numa franquia com tantos momentos marcantes.
SNESAll Game Guide (1998)
Final Fantasy III is possibly the best game on the Super NES, and certainly one of the top ten console games of all time. Those who haven't played it yet, should, and those who have, should go back and play it again. You won't be disappointed.
Some games have "intangibles" that make simple ratings like "sound", "graphics", blah, blah blah just sit there not contributing to the overall experience. Final Fantasy III is the best role-playing game ever made, but there are times when the graphics simply don't impress and the encounters are annoyingly incessant. Despite this, it is good enough to give a TEN, something I only do when I can say a game is in the top 5% of all the games I've ever played. It's a magnificent game.
SNESRPGFan (Nov 25, 1998)
If I were forced to found any downpoints that are really worth complaining about, I'd be very hard pressed to do it, the translation is really the only legitimate gripe I have (ex: We've gotta get to Narshe on the fly!) And there's just so much more, near-death special attacks that I haven't even seen all of (and I've played through 6 times), hidden chocobo stables, lots of fun extras to keep you interested. A truly classic rpg.
SNESGaming Target (Aug 16, 2006)
When all is said and done, this game is one of my personal favorites. Granted, I know there are better games out there- I’ll even rate some games higher than Final Fantasy III, but there’s something about the game’s quirky appeal that still brings me back year after year. This game is a definite must have, and if at all possible, avoid getting the Playstation version. While it has some great CG cutscenes, the SNES version loads faster, has no slowdown and the sound is much crisper and cleaner. So stop reading this review, go to your local used game store (or eBay), and pick up a copy of Final Fantasy III today.
SNESGame Players (Oct, 1994)
The bottom line is simple: if you're only going to buy one SNES game this year, make it Final Fantasy III --- you're gonna need it to live.
96 (Jan 08, 2011)
Siendo sinceros, FFVI no es el mejor juego de la historia, ni el mejor RPG, ni tampoco el mejor título para la 16 bits de Nintendo. Sin embargo, lo que no se puede negar es que es una obra de arte, una auténtica joya de los videojuegos que demuestra que también hay vida antes de FFVII y que hubo tiempos mejores. En definitiva, una de las mejores entregas de la serie, uno de los mejores juegos de SNES y, por qué no decirlo, uno de los mejores RPG de todos los tiempos.
Game Boy (Apr 11, 2007)
I would like to also point out that it is now possible to play every pixel based, 2D Final Fantasy game on Nintendo’s handheld consoles. Final Fantasy I & II were released on one compilation cartridge. FFIII was remade on the DS with all new 3D visual and text translation. And IV, V, and VI have all been ported over to the GBA. If you never played these games, now is the perfect time.
SNESVideo Games (Dec, 1994)
Es gibt viele Spiele, die gut sind und welche, die auch Spaß machen, aber FF III hat etwas, was die meisten anderen vermissen lassen, nämlich Herz.
Game Boy (Feb 22, 2007)
It's not a perfect port, but you'd be hard pressed to make a more technically able game on the GBA. Having one of the greatest RPGs ever made in your pocket is simply too awesome not to recommend.
Game Boy AdvanceGamePro (US) (Mar 06, 2007)
Assuredly, a great majority of RPGers have already beaten Final Fantasy VI multiple times, and while this game is pretty much a direct port, I still recommend it highly just for sweet nostalgia's sake. And if you're one of those poor unfortunate souls that missed your chance when it was first released on the NES and then again when it was re-released on the PlayStation, go out now and get it. This is the third release; if that doesn't tell you how excellent a game is, I don't know what will.
SNESNintendo Land (Sep 13, 2003)
Final Fantasy 3 is THE RPG game for all rpg fans out their but also to patience players that wants to try something different than all the american made action, racing and sport games. FF3 is THE RPG OF ALL TIME so stop reading and go buy it and become as engulfed by it´s story and great graphics as I am!
SNESConsoles Plus (May, 1994)
Vingt-quatre mégas de folie vous attendent dans cette nouvelle mouture de Final Fantasy. Les graphismes sont exceptionnels, la musique est à rester le cul par terre, et l'intérêt toujours aussi fantastique.
Game Boy (Jun 28, 2007)
Concluyendo ya el análisis, recomendamos encarecidamente que probéis Final Fantasy VI, descubriréis uno de los juegos más grandes de Super Nintendo, y quizás la mejor entrega de una serie tan carismática como Final Fantasy. Por desgracia, y salvo sorpresa mayúscula, este será el último gran juego del sistema, aunque por el contrario, qué mejor forma de cerrar la trayectoria de una consola como Game Boy Advance que con una joya de este calibre.
SNESRPG Kingdom (Jul 14, 2006)
Même si ceci est un point de vue qui n'engagera que moi, tout joueur fan de RPGs se doit d'expérimenter ce jeu au moins une fois dans sa vie. Il est d'ailleurs probable que comme beaucoup de fans, il regrettera simplement que jeu ne soit pas sorti des années plus tard, avec une technique bien plus pointue qu'à l'époque.
Game Boy AdvancePortable Review (Feb 13, 2007)
I made a point to play through the SNES version at least once a year, maxing out the clock each time as I leveled every character, made them learn every spell, and did everything in the game. There's a lot to do here, more now than before, and this title will definitely keep fans coming back for more.
SNESMega Fun (Nov, 1994)
Final Fantasy III sprengt alle üblichen RPG-Vorurteile. Von wegen spärliche Grafik und mickriger Sound, die Grafik gehört mit zur abwechslungsreichsten und detailliertesten, die man bislang zu sehen bekommen hat, und die Musik kann man sich einfach stundenlang anhören. Das wichtigste Element in einem RPG, die Story, ist fast schon unheimlich komplex und wurde atmosphärisch sehr gut in Szene gesetzt, Viele Kleinigkeiten, die beim Vorgänger noch vernachlässigt wurden, wie bspw. eine genaue Beschreibung der Gegenstände, die abwechslungsreichen 3D-Sequenzen oder die Tatsache, daß Eure Charaktere automatisch die beste Waffe oder Rüstung beim Anlegen erhalten, erweisen sich als äußerst benutzerfreundlich und ersparen ein ewiges Herumblättern in der Anleitung, so daß man gar nicht mehr aufhören kann, wenn man erst einmal angefangen hat zu spielen. Final Fantasy III ist schlicht und einfach das derzeit beste RPG, und das auf allen Systemen.
SNESRetroGame Man (Dec 29, 2015)
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Final Fantasy 3 even though it was on the easy-side. It had a compelling story, memorable characters, and open-world gameplay in the later part of the game that made it a joy to play. The excellent music was icing on the cake.
Game Boy AdvanceLegendra (Aug 06, 2008)
Véritable ode à la poésie, Final Fantasy VI débarque sur Game Boy Advance précédé d'une flatteuse réputation. Faisant partie de ces RPG intemporels, il devrait passionner les joueurs qui n'ont pas eu l'occasion de le découvrir, ou tout simplement ceux qui ont envie de refaire l'un des meilleurs RPG de la création dans les transports, bonifié par les quelques ajouts judicieux. Tout juste pourra-t-on regretter une perte de qualité dans le son, mais ce n'est qu'une goutte de saturation au milieu d'un océan de perfection.
Game Boy (2007)
Final Fantasy VI Advance est un RPG de grande qualité et qui dispose pour la première fois de textes localisés dans la langue de Molière. Les amateurs du genre devraient apprécier.
Game Boy AdvanceConsole Obsession (May 30, 2010)
FFVI Advance is in my humble opinion, the pinnacle of the JRPG. It’s a pure, refined character free of all other genres, it’s a shining beacon of JRPG excellence. I have no idea what it was like back in 1994, but hot damn it’s good today! Whether this is down to the high level of skill and love applied by the original development team, or a damning statement of a genre that, has in my eyes, only been hybridized, I leave for you to decide.
WiiNintendo Life (Mar 19, 2011)
Final Fantasy III did wonders for the RPG genre outside of Japan during the 16-bit era, and while the Chrono Trigger vs. Final Fantasy III debate still wages on, you can't help but appreciate how epic and enthralling a quest Squaresoft was able to cook up for this sixth release in the series. There might not be quite as much variety in the combat system as that of Chrono Trigger, but it's still a fairly big step up from that of Final Fantasy II, and ultimately an RPG adventure that's everything a good sequel should be and more. If you've somehow never played Final Fantasy III in any of its various forms over the years, you truly owe it to yourself to experience one of the best releases the series has to offer. And if you have played the game before, perhaps it's time to relive the magic all over again on the Virtual Console.
Game Boy AdvanceMeristation (Jul 02, 2007)
Independientemente de si gusta el género o no, todo el mundo debería darle una oportunidad a este estandarte de la escuela tradicional del RPG nipón. Final Fantasy VI da la impresión de no haber envejecido un ápice, ya que a pesar de los años ha sabido retener la magia que le catapultó al estrellato en todo el mundo. Resulta curioso comprobar como incluso a día de hoy, al jugar, parece que el tiempo a nuestro alrededor pase más deprisa.
SNESNintendo Life (Nov 22, 2009)
There's certainly no denying what Final Fantasy III did for the RPG genre outside of Japan during the 16-bit era, and while the Chrono Trigger vs. Final Fantasy III debate still wages on, you can't help but appreciate how epic and enthralling a quest Squaresoft has been able to come up with for this sixth release in the series.

Game Boy AdvanceGameLemon (Jul 26, 2007)
But it's still Final Fantasy VI, a diamond among rock candy. And it's portable, so you can use it to be antisocial in new and exotic settings. Even with its rather weak bonuses, its watered down music, and its bit of slowdown, this is one of the best RPGs you can cram into your Gameboy Advance, and considering the excellent RPG library that the system already has, that's saying a lot. About 2,500 words to be precise. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to start my car. VROOOOOOOOOM!!!
Game Boy AdvancePocket Gamer UK (Mar 19, 2007)
If you've ever wondered what all the Final Fantasy fuss was about, this is the game to try. Perfecting the relationship between story, character and player, as well as having been treated to a neat new translation, Final Fantasy VI Advance is everything you could hope for in a handheld re-release. And that's the sort of magical Eastern import we'd like to see more of.
Game Boy AdvanceIGN (Feb 15, 2007)
With so much written about Final Fantasy VI in the decade-plus since its release, there's nothing I can tell you that you haven't heard before. What matters above all else, though, is that even in 2007, FF6 is exceptional fun. Even with its dated visuals and familiar concepts, it's one of the greatest games the world has ever seen, and it's just as entertaining now as it was during Clinton's first term. Don't miss it.
Game Boy AdvanceNintendojo (2007)
Besides the sound quality issues, players have little reason to choose the original cart over this GBA port. Everything that made Final Fantasy VI great on the SNES is here, and then some. This is the perfect opportunity for those who started with FFVII to take a step backward and learn about the series' roots, and invest some serious time doing it. Those who already own one of the other versions may not be lured in, but the extra content and portability should make it pretty tempting. There will always be those who still think Fire3 is better than Firaga, but that's okay, they can keep their mildewed SNES carts. They'll just have to imagine what Cait Sith looks like a summon.
Game Boy AdvanceRPGFan (Feb 28, 2007)
Now that Nintendo has finished their "legacy" of FF games on Nintendo handhelds (I through VI are all present and accounted for), I feel no shame in saying that this game is an excellent choice for purchase, and it ought to appeal to a wide spread of gamers. It's also, probably, one of the last titles we'll see published for the Game Boy Advance, with the Nintendo DS standing in its place. So, don't miss out; I would urge any and every red-blooded RPG Fan to purchase Final Fantasy VI Advance and keep it in their collection of games.
Game Boy AdvanceNintendoWorldReport (Mar 05, 2007)
For those who haven’t had a chance to play the classic, now is the time. Those who have played the game before now have the perfect opportunity to play it on the go. Final Fantasy VI Advance is the last Game Boy Advance game from Square-Enix and Nintendo, but this classic game is a great way to say goodbye to a system.
Game Boy AdvanceGame Informer Magazine (Apr, 2007)
Even though Final Fantasy VI has already reappeared once on the PSone, this isn’t just a port of a port. The refined translation clears up some potentially confusing story bits, and there are new espers and dungeons waiting for you in the endgame. Even though this content is a nice bonus, it doesn’t have a significant impact on the main progression. Luckily, the core game is still amazing by itself, and no one should need some fancy-pants excuse to go back and play this timeless classic.
Game Boy AdvancePAL Gaming Network (PALGN) (Aug 13, 2007)
The game that changed a series, and this GBA remake is near perfect. We went close to giving it a higher score, but if you like RPGs at all you really should buy this game.
PlayStationThunderbolt Games (Oct 17, 2008)
Often forgotten in light of its younger and more mainstream siblings such as Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy XII, FFVI is a terrific little game which deserves to be remembered as clearly and as fondly as the series' other iterations. Whether it is better is obviously completely subjective, but personally I have no problem saying this ranks up there at the very top of the RPG tree alongside FFVII.
SNESCubed3 (Oct 15, 2004)
Looking back up at those score you might have guessed the final score. However, as you should know by now, C3 is not about 'averages', so FFIII US misses out on the elusive '10' rating as it does not quite reach perfection. What it does do, though, is manage to break its way into the Top 5 RPGs of all time! This was one of Squaresoft's defining moments, so be sure not to miss out on it at any cost.
Game Boy AdvanceMag'64 (Feb 13, 2008)
Wie schon die letzten Teile ist auch der 6er wieder fast schon ein Must Have für jeden FF und RPG Fan, der auf die Spiele alter Machart steht. Auch wenn der GBA sicher technisch keinen hinter dem Ofen mehr hervorlockt, spielt der Charme schon noch seinen Reiz aus. Allerdings technisch ohne Fehl und Tadel, kann sich der Spieler auf den Rest freuen. Eine unerreichte Spielzeit, viele Charaktere ohne Berufssystem und mit eigenen Geschichten, die hier zu einer opulenten Gesamtstory verflochten sind. Alle irgendwie gleichberechtigt und durch das Gruppen Gameplay eben auch alle wichtig. Tiefgang im RPG System, Locations, Ausrüstungen und Gegner ohne Ende, samt den oft gespielten Rätseln und vielen Side Quests. Man könnte vieles aufzählen um das Spiel hervorzuheben. Mittlerweile teils sehr günstig zu haben, sollte man sich diesen Teil durchaus in seine Sammlung holen. Trotz DS und heutzutage anderer Technik.
New before have I seen a game with this much depth and detail. Few RPGs can hope to have the emotional draw this one has. The graphics and sounds blow away all other RPGs. This is the new standard. The Mode 7 scenes are pretty cool, albeit a little pixelized. If you've ever wanted an epic story and lots of hidden things to find, Final Fantasy III is a must. It's almost a 10. Its going to be near impossible to top this.
Game Boy AdvanceAll Game Guide (2007)
If you love RPGs, you owe it to yourself to experience FFVI Advance, especially if you missed this masterpiece the first time around.
Game Boy (UK) (Mar 06, 2007)
For those who first fell for Final Fantasy VI many years ago, the experience will not disappoint in the way that many revisited interactive memories can do. In 1994 the fresh gameplay ideas Final Fantasy 6 brought to the RPG genre, coupled with the highly enjoyable story, brilliant ensemble cast and stirring score would have made the game an easy, trailblazing Eurogamer 10. It's either a remarkable testament to the original development team's vision and skill, or a damning indictment of a genre that this is so very nearly the case thirteen years on.
Game Boy AdvanceGameSpot (Feb 13, 2007)
Final Fantasy VI Advance is a great addition to the extensive library of Game Boy Advance role-playing games. The game has been well adapted to the platform, and most of the minor changes add up to make an already great game even better. It could easily take you around 40 hours to finish the game, but there are plenty of areas to explore and side quests to complete to keep you playing. There have also been some extras added for this version of the game, including a quicksave function that lets you suspend your game, a bestiary, a music player, and a bonus dungeon that you can unlock later in the game. They are small additions, but they at least give people who have already played other versions of this game another reason to visit it again. Whether you've played it before or are just curious about how the series has evolved over the years, Final Fantasy VI is a classic game that shouldn't be missed. The fact that you can now take it anywhere only sweetens the deal.
Game Boy AdvanceWorth Playing (Feb 10, 2007)
The Game Boy Advance had a great run. From Castlevania: Circle of the Moon to Final Fantasy VI, there are few systems that can boast such a lifespan. As a sendoff to the aging Game Boy Advance, Final Fantasy VI is a worthy swan song. With a wide cast of enjoyable characters, a surprisingly interesting plot, and an enjoyable battle system, Final Fantasy VI is the perfect title to bid adieu to the tiny system which has given us years of enjoyment.
Game Boy AdvanceGame Informer Magazine (Apr, 2007)
Far more than an antiquated classic, this installment of the vaunted franchise is worth another play because it remains a fantastic RPG from beginning to end. Optional story paths make this more freeform than most titles in the genre. From Gau’s Rages to Sabin’s Blitz attacks, the unique options for each character make battle an active and interesting mechanic, rather than just a time waster between story events. An improved translation, enhanced tech in the graphics and sound departments, and a few new gameplay elements are ultimately minor changes, but welcome nonetheless – high marks all around.
Game Boy (Jul 13, 2007)
C'est avec ce sixième chapitre de Final Fantasy que Square Enix achève son tour d'horizon des remakes GBA et conclut l'historique de la saga sur la période 8 et 16 bits. Disposant d'une traduction française et d'un supplément de contenu, cette version GBA est d'autant plus indispensable qu'elle permet de redécouvrir l'épisode le plus essentiel de toute la série, avant que le septième volet ne vienne lui faire prendre une nouvelle dimension.
85 (Feb 20, 2002)
Même aujourd'hui, FF6 n'a rien perdu de sa superbe et demeure l'un des jeux de rôles les plus prestigieux sur consoles. Un titre tout simplement incontournable pour qui souhaite découvrir les origines de la saga Final Fantasy, et qui dégage une atmosphère véritablement unique.
Game Boy AdvanceUGO (UnderGroundOnline) (2007)
These minor sticking points aside, Final Fantasy VI Advance is a classy RPG with a great story and fun gameplay mechanics which fit comfortably into the Final Fantasy oeuvre. The upgrades may not be on the level with the recently released Final Fantasy III DS, but this is still a classic game re-imagined for handheld play. If you've never played this one, the deep, engaging story is more than enough of a reason to try it out. And if you know every FF game inside and out, well... there's a decent amount of new material to complement what was already a great game.
82 (Nov, 2003)
Have no fear, character development is the only real problem in this game. It is by far one of the best games for the SNES, and ranks among the best Final Fantasy games ever. Own a SNES? Buy this game, somehow, somewhere, for any price. Don't own a SNES? Emulators are better than nothing, I guess.
Game Boy AdvanceFOK!games (Jun 20, 2007)
Met Final Fantasy VI Advance komt er een einde aan de Final Fantasy-reeks die geport werd op de GBA. Maar ik kan er heel kort over zijn, het is een mooie afsluiter met zeker een welverdiend hoge score. Het spel speelt lekker als een oldschool-RPG en het brengt de Final Fantasy-fans weer helemaal terug in de tijd van FF VI op de SNES. Het verhaal kent meer diepgang dan de voorgangers en daardoor storen de verouderde graphics helemaal niet. De levensduur van het spel zal zo een 30 uur in beslag gaan nemen en dat vind ik echt prima voor een RPG op de GBA.
WiiRetroManiac (Apr, 2011)
Concluyendo, puede que el sistema de batallas basado en turnos ideado por Sakaguchi no sea para todos, y que la aparición aleatoria de enemigos en el mapeado es, para un servidor, de lo más irritante, pero si estos detalles no son ningún problema, entonces te encontrarás con uno de los RPG más grandes de la historia, que te ofrecerá, (en inglés), muchíismas horas de diversión.
WindowsGameZone (Jun 20, 2014)
So if you’re feeling nostalgia, love old school RPGs, want to see where a lot RPG systems came from, or just like Final Fantasy games – definitely pick up the Steam version of Final Fantasy III. If you’re looking for a quick game, a detailed job system, or something simple, I wouldn’t suggest FFIII to you. This game paved the way for not only future Final Fantasy games, but basically any job-system RPG out there. If history is your thing, give this title a little love.
WindowsDigitally Downloaded (Jun 16, 2014)
If you have already played the DS or iOS version of this game, there may not be enough of a reason to purchase it on Steam now. However, if you missed that opportunity before and want to experience an important part of Final Fantasy's early evolution, this is an excellent way to do so. The character depth and story detail might feel somewhat lacking compared to newer JRPG titles, but there is an expansive world here that begs for exploration as you grow your characters for future challenges. The overall package is an easy one to recommend.

Cette version PSX qui arbore fièrement ses trois cinématiques (stupidement, à part la cinématique d'intro, il faut finir le jeu une fois avant de pouvoir visionner les autres, ça casse tout l'intérêt des cinématiques Made in Square qui sont censées s'imbriquer in-game pour dynamiser l'action) nous laisse sur notre faim avec zéro amélioration graphique ou sonore : pire encore, cette version n'émule pas parfaitement le processeur sonore de la SNES ni ses graphismes et animations qui ralentissent (regarder les décors défiler pendant l'affrontement du train fantôme : une honte ! Mais c'est peut être du au 50 Hertz...). S'il s'agit bien ici du FF6 que l'on aime tant, cette version n'est sûrement pas la meilleur pour faire un RPG, qui reste malgré tout, le meilleur Classical de la création.

Final Fantasy VI Advance offers today's players another chance to experience what could be the best story in the Final Fantasy series. Square Enix labeled the series as "Finest Fantasy for Advance" in Japan, hoping to entice new and old gamers to enjoy this classic title. While the additions probably aren't enough to make it worth replaying the game if you're just in search of new abilities, the game itself shines. If you haven't played Final Fantasy VI before, or tried to play through the PlayStation port in Final Fantasy Anthology, this game is definitely worth the purchase. For gamers who've already enjoyed Final Fantasy VI, the main reason to purchase would be for nostalgia. For most of us, that's enough of a reason.

If you think you are capable of navigating this RPG in Japanese, give it a shot. For the rest, you will just have to wait until February.

Pour ceux qui aiment l’aventure, FF6 est un jeu à ne pas manquer. Il faut à tout pris y jouer.

Technisch merkt man Final Fantasy VI sein Alter natürlich deutlich an. Was vor acht Jahren noch grafisch erste Sahne war, entlockt heutzutage niemandem mehr auch nur ein müdes Lächeln. Zudem nervt die Neuauflage mit überdimensionalen PAL-Balken und nervenzehrenden Ladezeiten. Rein spielerisch sind die Unterschiede zu den aktuellen Episoden der Serie jedoch minimal und musikalisch könnten sich selbst heute noch viele ein Stück von den atmosphärischen Kompositionen abschneiden. Auch Story und Charaktere haben kaum an Spannung und Charme verloren. 15 Euro sollte dieser Klassiker wirklich jedem Rollenspiel-Fan wert sein, sofern man noch ein Exemplar ergattern kann. Und selbst wer das SNES-Original noch irgendwo im Schrank stehen hat, sollte nicht zögern, bekommt man neben zusätzlichem Bonusmaterial doch auch noch eine spielbare Demo von Final Fantasy X geboten!

Bereits vor 13 Jahren erschien "Final Fantasy 6" in den USA und Japan fdür die Konsole Super Nintendo. Die Grafik des Spiels befindet sich unverändert auf dem Niveau von 1994 und versprüht höchstens nostalgischen Charme. Trotzdem weiß das erstmals komplett auf Deutsch vorliegende Spiel vor allem wegen seiner spannenden Geschichte und der komplexen Spielmechanik noch heute "gut" zu unterhalten.

It's hard to recommend Final Fantasy 3 in 2014, especially at the $16/£11 price Square's asking. It's a nostalgia trip that still feels more suited to a handheld than a desk. If you've played it in the past, you know how long this fantasy can last—more than 50 hours, if you want to finish everything. If you haven't played, you'll have to look past many antiquated concepts to find the fun. Those open to outdated gameplay could find something fascinating here, but modern role-players should stay away.

Final Fantasy III, for all its flaws, is still an endearing trip down nostalgia lane. Its job system, while simplistic, paved the way for the more complex customization in later Final Fantasy titles. The story is simple but well-paced as a result of the exploration-heavy gameplay. That said, a truly worthwhile Steam release would have been a definitive version of Final Fantasy III, with the clean and sleek blue combat interface, improved saving, the accommodating auto-battle mechanic, and the bonus NES soundtrack found in other versions. As it is now, Final Fantasy III for PC is a functional and serviceable, if bare-boned, port.

Going in fully understanding that this is basically a NES game at heart with all that implies, you might be able to endure and find some charm in the classic formula.

Ik vond Final Fantasy geen leuk spel. Eerlijk gezegd vond ik het zelfs behoorlijk irritant. Het enige dat nog wel te pruimen was, was de muziek die zo onopvallend is dat ik het na een tijdje niet meer hoorde. Bij dit soort spellen krijg ik de neiging om m'n SNES ernstig te mishandelen. Heeft iemand een idee waarom dit spel zo populair is in Japan? Alle suggesties zijn welkom.

They probably included an extra dungeon, but I never bothered to get that far. I only played for a few hours before setting it on fire and dunking my DS in holy water to get the crap out. In conclusion, this game sucks. If you want to play it for the experience, play Final Fantasy 1 instead, because the two games are exactly the same, and FFI is cheaper.
