  • Summary: An epic adventure across 3 cd-roms. What begins as a rebellion against an evil corporation becomes much more. And what erupts goes beyond imagination. With vivid landscapes, lush 3D animation and environments, Square Soft's multi-million dollar masterpiece is like nothing ever seen before.

The original version released in 1997 is a 10 for me. This version, however, is better. The graphics look cleaned up a bit. The translation is cleaned up a bit. The addition of no encounters is nice but the addition of the '3x speed' is the highlight of this release. To be able to speed the game up and grind out levels in 2 hours that would have normally taken 6 is impressive.

    I love this version and it comes with a kick ass PS4 theme.

Fixing these flaws wouldn't even make the game better, as it take away from the feeling of authenticity. Clicking on the left and right sticks add modifiers to the game to make parts easier, which is great for first-time players. One of these modifiers speeds up the game, which admittedly, can be very useful at times. Some translation is cleaned up a bit, which is a nice touch. However, the best part by far is the switch between the control scheme. In the original game, O was used instead of X to confirm things on menus and such, which was very confusing at first. Hopefully the remake can come out as soon as possible. Expand

    dont buy this port, get final fantasy off of the playstation store for less than 10$(us) for your ps3/psp/vita. or play it classic or get the PC port because you can get some mods that really polish the game up and make a diamond shine even brighter.
