Its been a downhill since then for squaresoft.
The story is so detailed without getting boring (skyrim) so humanistic without being cheesy, sad without being depressive, and positive in the end as well.
Characters are amazing, i actually dont like how developers abuse the cute anime look, but thanks to yoshikata amano's designs FF6 has some of the most charming guys around, you play with human beings this time, each one with their hopes and personal issues.
THE MUSIC! Top contender for the best soundtrack ever! in 16bit glory! A mix of classical and progressive influences, best soundtrack by Nobuo Uematsu ever, and he has done lots of them!
Visually is also intense considering how old the game is, love how square toned down the palette for this one, goes along perfect with the story they are telling, which is epic and poetic.
Battles are not so hard but not so easy as well, they will give you the challenge you need to go along with the story without getting bored.
Not only the best rpg ever, but also one of the best videogames ever, if you hate rpgs play it to see what is all about.… Full Review »

The touch controls are really terrible, the game is really ugly (it looks like it was done with RPG maker) to such an extent that the original released in 1994 on the SNES is more beautiful. In addition, they facilitated the game for that casual will not be lost. This game on ios is a failure and square enix should stop to port his masterpieces on machines that are not even made for gaming and therefore have no reason to exist. Go buy the original on SNES or even the GBA version but not this """"remake""""".
Square Enix, please remake this game in 3D on the 3DS. This would be the best thing to do to honor a such masterpiece of the RPG.… Full Review »
