FF6 is the BEST GAME EVER,
This review is from: Final Fantasy Anthology (Final Fantasy V & VI) (Video Game)
They didnt have a FF6 page so ill review ff6 here:
Hands down, no other game can compare to final fantasy 6. it is by far the best rpg out there, for ANY system, and you will be hard pressed to find a better game period. Old school graphics (i.e. hand drawn) are by far better than even the best of the new computer generated stuff (keep in mind that im 15 and saying this). The music in this game is incredible, its the best music I have ever heard in a video game, save MAYBE Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross.
Ok, now here is where the game truly shines. The story, and gameplay. The immense scope of the story is staggering, it spans a cast of 13 characters that are all unique and contribute to the storyline. The characters all act believeably, and there are serious consequences for all the actions taken (as in the reshaping of the world...). Certain scenes are unbeliveably powerful, such as Cyan watching his wife and son board the Phantom Train, and the decision of who will take the throne of Figaro. By the end of the game, you will feel that you know the characters, and care for them. Believe me, this almost never happens and is extremely rare, that a game was able to do this blew me away.
And we haven't even talked about gameplay yet. Everything about combat is intuitive, and works extremely well. Square learned from their previous rpgs, and adjusted to create one of the best turn-based systems ever created. An ATB (active time battle) gauge can be displayed that lets you know exactly how much time you have left before you can act again, no guessing here. The use of magic is similar to FF7 and (sort of) FF9, they both looked to this game as inspiration. When you recieve magicite (a sort of magical essence) you equip it, and at first you cannot learn the spells contained within. By fighting you gain magic points (AP) and once you gain enough (enough to equal 100%, each esper multiplies the number of points you recieve by a certain amount), you permanetly learn the spell and do not have to wear the magicite anymore (of which you can only wear one at a time). You can summon an Esper with the magicite at any time after you have equipped it. Whew! At any rate the system works extremely well.
In the end, let me say this. I have played a lot of games, a LOT/ for almost every system ever released. No other game can touch this game. You simply WILL NOT be disappointed by this game, it is absoutely phenomenal. Very Highly Recommended
