  1. It is better than "FFVII" and "FFVIII." In fact, it may be the best PlayStation RPG out there.

  3. We're not exactly sure how two games out of a series of nine constitutes an "anthology," but they're good games nonetheless. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    Since I'd only played FFVI and not FFV, I was completely taken by surprise by how deep and involving every aspect of the game was. From the highly addictive Job System to figuring out how to equip my Mime, I really enjoyed this game for the full 40-plus hours it took to beat it.
  6. A fun reminder that quality RPG gameplay and good storytelling can easily survive technological transitions.
