Product Description

Product Description

Final Fantasy Anthology incorporates two of the most beloved FINAL FANTASY titles ever published. First released as FINAL FANTASY III in the U.S., FINAL FANTASY VI brings back all of the qualities that made it the best selling RPG of its time, and adds a few bonuses unique to this re-release. The second title in this compilation, FINAL FANTASY V, is seeing its first ever release in the U.S. Featuring an innovative 'Job' system and a story that will take the player to different worlds, this title will finally show U.S. gamers what they have been missing. If you are new to the FINAL FANTASY universe, pick up Anthology as way of getting to know the series that has garnered the praise of millions. If you are already a fan, pick it up to relive the magic once again.

Amazon.com

Showcasing two installments of SquareSoft's wildly popular role-playing game (RPG) series, Final Fantasy Anthology features the U.S. debut of Final Fantasy V, and reintroduces one of the best RPGs of all time, Final Fantasy VI, originally released as Final Fantasy III on the Super Nintendo gaming system.

Both games are straight Super Nintendo conversions, so their 2-D graphics and 16-bit sounds are admittedly subpar by PlayStation standards. However, SquareSoft has added brand-new, beautifully animated movies for both titles, and has given Final Fantasy VI the star treatment it deserves by adding a bonus mode where gamers can access loads of supplementary material, such as artwork and data files on the game's monsters and items.

While Final Fantasy V is one of weaker entries in the series, Final Fantasy VI alone is totally worth the price of Final Fantasy Anthology. Endearingly melodramatic characters, a genuinely epic story line, and rock-solid gameplay make Final Fantasy VI just as absorbing today as it was when it was Final Fantasy III. --Joe Hon

Pros:

  • Brand-new animated movies
  • Reissues Final Fantasy VI, one of the best RPGs ever
  • Lots of supplementary material for Final Fantasy VI
Cons:
  • Dated graphics and sounds may bother some gamers
  • The previously unreleased Final Fantasy V may as well have stayed unreleased

"Final Fantasy Anthology" is, arguably, squares greatest role playing game release for the playstation yet."Final Fantasy Anthology" features three discs. The first disc is "Final Fantasy V", the second disc is "Final Fantasy VI" and the third is a collection of favorite tunes from both games. Both games contain epic plots, battles between good and evil, dragons, magic, insane evil, and other fantasy elements expressed at their best.
Final Fantasy VI
Many centuries have passed since the War of the Magi, in which god-like monsters with tremendous magical powers were used. Civilizations have been rebuilt with iron, machines, and technology. For years, the ancient Espers have existed only as lost lengends. Now an Esper has been discovered and the forces of magic are starting to return. The risk of another, more devastating war is about to surface.
Enter Terra. Shrouded in mystery, Terra is a young 16 year old girl stricken with amnesia. Imprisoned by the malicous villian Kefka, Terra is forced to joined his evil cause. She is the only being on the planet able to use magic, a talent which she she was born with. While exploring a cave, she unearths a Esper, and it kills her comrades, who hold her captive, allowing her to escape. Assisted by Lock, A wandering Theif, Celes, A traitor to Kefka, and many more comrades, Terra must learn the secret that is her past, and prevent the destruction of the planet.
The story and plot for this game is simply fantastic, and each character is engaging, with fascinating personalities. Each character has a interesting past, discovered and slowly revealed by clever plot twists. The story is, in my opinion, ingeniuis. Kefka wins my vote for best villian.

4.0 out of 5 stars You'll Love This Package January 18, 2000

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is actually 2 games with a bonus music CD. Final Fantasy 5 was never released in the US, although some people reading this may have played an emulated version. It is a good game even without the graphical flare of Final Fantasy 6. It has a job system and it basically follows classic Square RPG format. Final Fantasy 6 is a better game and it probably set the mark for all RPG's following it. It's graphics, although now outdated, are still colorful and good. The music is awesome, simply put. You'll be humming these tunes at work or school all day. Every character has his/her own special skill which is a nice addition. The Esper system is easy to use and magic can be learned by all characters. The one point this game falls short of its SNES relative is loading time. It's not a big change, but it is noticeable....thats why only 4 stars. The new cut scenes pick up a little slack for the slow load time. The music CD is good but somewhat incomplete. There should have been more tracks on it.
All things included, this was MUCH more satisfying than Final Fantasy 8. Instead of releasing FF8, Square should have released this and made 8 better. If you liked Final Fantasy for the SNES, get this!

4.0 out of 5 stars What is the editorial thinking.... June 26, 2001
"The game might as well stayed unreleased..." I don't agree with this at all! I personally appreciate the effort of Square to give us this game - a game we otherwise would not have. FFA should be a game in your PSX library. 2 for 1 - can't beat that. I feel as though even "new-school" gamers who played FF7 first would find these games entertaining. Now as far as the comment in the editorial about FF5, this game is the hardest in the series, next to the FF3 that Japan got (for the original NES). The bosses are hard, and mastering the job system in this game takes a lot of effort. Try going through this game without dying on a few bosses and you can consider yourself an FF expert.
My hat's off to Square for releasing these games to us hardcore gamers in North America. FF VI is arguably the best RPG in the 16-bit genre, and FF V, technically being a new game to North America, make this an unbeatable package. Square must know this, because they're doing it again with Final Fantasy Chronicles (FF IV and Chrono Trigger). Smart move if you ask me. Gamers like me will be first in line to get this compilation when it comes out. Meanwhile, if you see this somewhere and you don't own it, buy it! You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this game! August 1, 2000

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me first begin with saying this,if you started playing final fantasy at 7 or 8(mostly 8)you will probably not enjoy Final Fantasy Anthology.
The game comes packed with Final Fantasy 5 and 6(and a music cd). Final Fantasy 5 was never released in the Us you could only get it on a rom form.But anyway the game is very simple,yet complicated at times.The game is mostly about saving the crystals of the worlds(I won't go into detail you will have to find out for yourself :) ).Final Fantasy 6 is a story about a girl with the power of magic and the Empire is searching for her to help them control the world and have the "best" army.
Well let me just break it down:
FF5: Pros: Good Gameplay Some good character dev
Cons: Bad Graphics (for some), Not a great story, Can get somewhat boring for some, Music isn't that great
FF6 Pros: Great Story, Great Character del, THE BEST VILLIAN IN A VIDEO GAME! Fun Gameplay, Great sounds (like someones laugh :p),
Cons:
Graphics might be dated for some used to "newer" FF, Some people might get bored,
So the bottom line is if you like the older ones GET THIS GAME NOW! If you are new to ff still try this you might like it. Also both games have bad loading time.
