    SPOILERS My review of FFIX

    Absolutely. The story was comprehensive but inevitably as the whole story is being told in one game it's difficult to fully develop every single character. In general I've been in favour of telling the whole story in one game so we can immediately move on to the next story in a new world with...

    SPOILERS My review of FFIX

    Yeah as you say all the characters and monsters had a more cartoonish look to it so that could've had something to do with the change in graphics overall. Even if the fourth playable character was a factor I'm happy to say it was still worth it though as I quite enjoyed having four characters...

    SPOILERS My review of FFIX

    Good point about the sword magic. Having completed FF7, 8, 9 and in the process of completing 10 this is so far the only instance I've seen in a FF game of an ability that can only be performed with the combination of two specific characters. I found that quite innovative! Do you know of any...

    SPOILERS My review of FFIX

    I actually completed this back in June but didn't get round to writing a review til now. Sorry for the delay. I love FF7 and FF8 but having played those two back to back I must say it made a change of scenery to have a FF game with a medieval setting (with a bit of industrial technology thrown...

    My review of FFVIII

    Totally agree about Squall. I haven't played every FF game but it wouldn't surprise me if Squall's development as a character is seen as the best we've seen in the franchise so far as it's pretty hard to top imo. It did come at the expense of the other character's development as you pointed out...

    My review of FFVIII

    Apologies. I don't know how I accidentally posted the thread in the FFXIII forum without once realising it. Oops! 😁Thanks for moving it to the FFVIII forum. 😃

    My review of FFVIII

    Only a few weeks after completing FFVII (and posting a review of it) I completed FFVIII a couple of days ago for only the second ever time and 18 years after the first time. Playing it through again made me realise how much of it I'd forgotten. For example I remember battling Ultimecia at the...

    My review of FFVII

    I was the same when I was younger. I wouldn't have been able to understand how anyone could prefer any other FF game to FFVII either back then but now I appreciate different games appeal more to different people for different reasons and that makes for a more interesting and balanced debate on...

    My review of FFVII

    You have a point. The character models look fine from a distance but up close they look a little comical though as you and others pointed out on this thread it does give the characters a certain charm.The graphics aren't bad as such but playing FFVIII and being wowed quite often by the scenery...

    My review of FFVII

    Thanks for the reply! You have a point about FFIX's cast. I only got through the first disk the last time round but from what I saw of it seems to have a diverse cast too. I'll be replaying it as soon as I've finished FFVIII. As for FFVI I know even less about that game so can't comment on...

    My review of FFVII

    I recently joined this forum and introduced myself in my OP in the new Bodhum forum where I explained how I got into the FF series. I also mentioned FFVII was my fave out of those I'd played but I'd also incredibly gone about fourteen years without playing an FF game and fifteen years since I'd...

    Hi! New member

    So I've been a Final Fantasy fan fan since my brother bought FF7 not long after we got the first PlayStation console in 1997. He turned out not to like it much despite being the one who bought it whereas I loved it and the rest is history. I completed the game eventually and then moved on to...
