I remember Christmas morning staying in my room and playing this game all morning until it was time to eat the big dinner. I just could not put this game down. It had a fairly cinematic opening with Terra, Wedge, and Vicks (an error in translation, he was supposed to be Biggs) traveling to Narshe to capture an Esper. This is still my favorite of all the Final Fantasies, and is one of my favorite games of all time, in any genre.
For the first time since the first game, there is no singular main character. The cast of characters changes throughout the game and even at the end when you can use any character, there is still no main character (most other Final Fantasies had followed one character, Cecil, Cloud, Squall, Tidus, etc). The leads are usually considered to be Terra and Locke, but several other characters can step up to that position: Edgar, Celes, Cyan.
This game has an incredible depth to the story. Like most games, it starts simply and escalates from there. The beginning is Locke, haunted by his past, rescuing Terra from the soldiers of the Empire. Locke is a member of the resistance, The Returners. As the game progresses, it gets bigger, as different cities and characters get involved. The main villain, Kefka starts out only trying to capture Espers and Magicite for the Empire as well as reclaiming Terra. We get to a point and the game branches in three. Three characters get their own segments to return to Narshe and this introduces us to more characters and more of the world and it opens up the story even more. Kefka, Emperor Gestahl and the Empire affects more lives than at first glance.
The story for this game broadens significantly, and as a whole this is the best Final Fantasy game of the series. I know that many people who first started with FFVII think that game is the best, and I do love that game as well, but this is where my heart lies.

There is no way around it. This is the best game of all time. Forget that, this is the best piece of entertainment of all time. Final Fantasy VII comes close, and is often hailed as the best in the series, but the true veterans who have been on board since the beginning know that this is the peak, the monument that defines the realm of RPGs. This analogy is probably overused, but accurate, that FFIII (FFVI J) is for video games what the Tolkien books are for fictional literature. The intricate, perfect, flawless interlacing and balance of art, music, story and gameplay push this above all the competition, no matter what era the contender in question may come from.
Perhaps the most vivid, profound point that FFIII makes is that a good game is not in the graphics, but in the gameplay, which is the soul of a well-designed game. Not to say that the graphics aren't beautiful; released in 1994, the backgrounds, battle engine, and overworld effects are gorgeous, considering it's birthdate. But the gameplay, the foundation of Final Fantasy III, is one of the two main elements that make it the gem of all the industry. There are a ton of items, 255 to be exact, from swords to paint brushes, from plumed hats to paladin shields. One of the best things about FFIII is that most characters are not limited to one type of weapon, as we see in FF VII, VIII, IX, etc. There are indeed limits on who can equip what, but they are very pertinent. For example, Locke, the thief, uses mostly knives in battle. He cannot equip large swords like the Masamune or Sky Render, but he can wield short swords like the Regal Cutlass. Some items abound, and others are one of a kind. Magic and special skills are also plentiful.

Where do you start when writing a review of this game? How do you actually review and still do justice to a game which boasts such fantastic, unprecedented brilliance? How do you describe in words its absolute magic, which reels you in and never lets go, from the first intriguing minute right up to the spectacular finale that will leave you gasping for breath?
Perhaps we should start with the characterisation. With an impeccable, varied cast of 14 playable characters, there isn't much more that you can ask for. But what are characters without personality, emotion or being? Here, your characters are not merely disposable, faceless pawns; as the game progresses, you discover their inner selves, the dark secrets that their pasts hide. Unlike many other RPGs, characters aren't made of flimsy cardboard; they have feelings, reasons for the things they do. They change and grow with the unfolding storyline, sweeping you along with them. Who is Gau, the boy raised and bred by monsters, and where did he come from? What bond does Terra share with the magical Espers, and what part does she play in the evil, mercenary Empire's plans? And don't forget the other members of the cast; General Leo, who becomes disillusioned with the Empire and forsakes it, at the cost of his own life; the double-faced, scheming Emperor Gestahl, whose heinous plans eventually backfire, damning him to his own destruction; and of course the inimitable Kefka, the central lackey-turned-villain of the game. Wacky, obsessed and absolutely nuts, he is often referred to as the "Clown Prince of Darkness", destroying the world and loving every minute of it. How many villains spout lines like "I will create a monument to non-existence!", "Son of a submariner!
