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.
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

As for FF VI, how can you not like this game? Fantastic story with a great villain. And not to mention: a villain that completes what he sets out to do.
These two games being released on the ps1 together seemed like a miracle, because out of the first six, they were all I was missing.
Narrowly escaped tragedy with my package, though! Opened it up and pulled the case out, seeing that the back part was shattered! I figured it was because it might have been used, but then I realized it was in shrink wrap and I hadn't purchased a used copy. Upon looking inside the package envelope itself, I saw the broken pieces of the case sitting in there. Somewhere in the shipping process, someone may have been a little rough? Luckily, the disc (FFVI) wasn't damaged or scratched in anyway, even though it was sitting on a jagged surface. A little unfortunate, being that I like to keep the cases nice for my collection, but I somewhat salvaged it with some clear tape.
What can I say about FF5 that hasn't been mentioned in the reviews. Yes it is what it is. It's not a great inventive story, it is just a good vs. evil boring straight forward unemotionally attachable RPG. I mean honestly one of the main characters dies and gets replaced and you hardly notice or feel anything. So now that the negative is out of the way... the positives! The gameplay on FF5 is absolutely enchanting! The class building is so much fun if even just to find out all the different amazing weaponry you can develop. Unfortunately they did not offer a lot of side enemies you could battle to truly use these epic battle techniques. Basically I did enjoy the game, but when it was over felt no need to go back and play again.
FF6... it's all been said, the best RPG ever. It all began and ended here. This is the last time a game truly had to attempt greatness before insane graphics took over. Gameplay is outstanding (though the class building is gone) with multiple characters with different attributes available. Story grabs you from the beginning and almost refuses to let go(seriously ditch the g/f and be prepared to miss classes or work). Warning: you will care about the characters, you may cry, and you will be appalled by the villain. This game is never boring, and has endless storyline that gets deeper and deeper. I have played this game more times than I can count and will continue to go back. Love it!
Still an amazing game, it can bring someone to tears.
I just wish to get the point across on how elegant and wonderful this game plays out to be, it can lead to myself feeling a mix of different emotions.
