It's set in a land where magic has disappeared, and humanity has instead turned to iron, gunpowder, steam and other technology. Actually, it would be more accurate to say that magic is mostly gone - a young woman enslaved by the evil Empire still has the power. When she encounters a powerful ancient being called an Esper, she sets off a chain of events that will have epic and terrible consequences. Expand

    From a visual standpoint, Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is simply magnificent. The game is one of the best pixel remastered versions, considering the Square Enix effort put up comparatively.

    Final Fantasy VI is easily the “crown jewel” of the pixel remaster releases given how much effort Square Enix put into it comparatively, and is certainly now the definitive version of the game to play. I honestly wish it hadn’t taken me as long as I had to play FFVI because I think it stands as one of my all-time favorite Final Fantasy games! I wholeheartedly recommend playing it if you haven’t yet, as fellow newcomers to the title can’t go wrong with giving this version a try. Final Fantasy VI is a true classic with all the positive connotations of the word.

    Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is an admirable update to one of the greatest games of all time. The story remains as captivating now as it did when it was released almost thirty years ago, and even with the limited power of the hardware, the artwork and music helped bring everything to life.

    Just like in the classic 2D series Final Fantasy VI is something really special in the Pixel Remaster edition as well.

    Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is an inconsistent work. Graphically, it has some nice effects, but also some ugly elements, the most obvious one is the typography. It is a remake that removes important things from the original game and adopts unnecessary new features. It's not the best version of the game, but it's not the worst either.

This grander, more operatic narrative features a large ensemble cast -- each fully realized characters and each with their own complete arcs and storylines. Final Fantasy VI is a masterpiece, and one of the franchise's very best installments. Expand

    Note: i've finished the game on everything (SNES, GBA, iOS, Android, PSOne) and this might be the most frustrating experience, even worst than the loading times on the PSOne, because it didn't meddle with the gameplay and overall experience, it just made you wait for it
