Playstation - Final Fantasy VI review

Final Fantasy VI ( Final Fantasy Anthology )


I thought I try out Final Fantasy 6 on the PSone. It's one of the rarest and a very expensive Playstation game. In fact for the price of Final Fantasy Anthology, you can get a brand new Playstation 2 game. I never owned a SNES Game before. I played some Final Fantasy VI through emulation. The way I heard this is Final Fantasy VI (FF III in North America) is timed after the events of FFI mainly because it is the same time as the Esper Mages. The Espers are Magic race that are short and no faces with yellow eyes and witch's hats. Final Fantasy IX was the next game in the series of events in Final Fantasy VI because one of the characters in the game was a Esper. I believe Final Fantasy IX came before Final Fantasy III because the Magik empire still Existed. This game is near the end of the Esper Race when the Magitek Empire have wiped out the lands of Earth (War of Magi) consuming resources at an astonishing rate 1000 years after. Humans wanted to capture Espers and harness their magic to power the Magitek Armor, the apex of human civilization in that time period. But there is one human who carried Esper magic whos name is Terra and she forgotten everything except for magic. There are too songs in this game that I've heard on many gaming sites near the beginning of Final Fantasy VI when Terra, Biggs and Wedge are coming towards the Castle. The songs called "Death on the Snowfield" on the game credits, but I don't know what the other ones called. But "Death on the Snow field" was some of the finest Final Fantasy music ever created. I'm personally much more an action First Person Shooter fan myself. So Unreal Tournament music sounds better. In the game, after your first encounter with the first Esper in the cave, your Esper can join you in your battle, but only once. Then after it's up to you (or me) to figure out what the best way to use Esper Magic. Final Fantasy used a live action level up system, meaning that the enemy can attack any time during the battle. Enemies can transform into a more powerful enemy if you don't attack when you have the chance. The more you use different combos up magic the more often it'll level up and the more powerful the spell and the more powerful combos you can learn, which isn't learned early in the game.

Graphics - 5.5 -The game is definally a 2D game. It was one of the best looking Super Nintendo game available partly because it had some 3D short clips. The game runs in low resolution. The game great looking 2D animation. They look very clean and crisp. Well if you take it that all these sprite characters have "3 still animations at once" I still suppose most of you are addicts of the PS2 game, Final Fantasy X, the first playstation game to go high resolution. I suppose Final Fantasy VII on the PC was a high resolution game too. But this game had a unusual graphics engine to make animation so crystal clear which was also used in the creation of another great game, Chrono Trigger.

Control - 9.0 The control in Final Fantasy VI is able to be used with the D-pad. Usually in these old titles, you do a lot of menu jumping, especially when you quickly decide the type of Esper Magic to use in the random battle sequences. The menu is clean, and not over compensated with pretty icons and colors. All of Squaresoft games in this time used the active battle system. We seen this in Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana and Seiken Densui 3.

Sound - 9.0 - I come across the music as interesting. I'm a guy who likes to download re-creations of game music based on MP3s which people made music off the Final Fantasy series. Back in 1994, all games were midi. Well the Playstation came out later that year and became the biggest hit since Atari, even more so then NES. It's good, it's super dupper freaken mega great people. You can compare it to Chrono Trigger, or you can compair it to Final Fantasy X and it'll be one of the best. Then there is recreations of the popular "Death on the Snowfield" in the cinematic video scenes. There are only four in the entire game. The intro in the cd, the castle scene, the ending and one other scene.

Fun Factor - 8.5 - This game should of made it with a specacular 32 bit upgrade. But it didn't. Any how the Gameboy Advance of Final Fantasy III does looks better then the Playstation game. The game is fun because it has a good story line through out the game. The game is rememberable because it has Espers in it and the has a good random battle bases. It's not too easy but not overly difficult.

Closing Comments - If you don't have to get Final Fantasy VI for the Playstaion to enjoy a more epic RPG released a decade ago. Just search Google for the SNES ROM of Final Fantasy VI. There are enough gaming sites that'll carry the rom in a zip file. If you need a emulator, get SNES9x, it's the best. Needs the minimal requirements and still as the best sound of any emulator. The Final Fantasy VI marked a end of a generation who played games when they were just game and people played these games over 3 or 4 times before they finally got sick of them. Now games are only completed once before the next best thing comes out. It's complete insanity now-a-days. Kids and adults a like throw 100s of dollars in videogames. It'll never stop as long as theirs a new Final Fantasy game in development, there will always be a young egger gamer wanting to buy it. (article posted July 14, 2003 1:20 PM)
