Final Fantasy VI (SNES/PS1) Review: The Greatest JRPG?

The Greatest? While my humble opinion on which Final Fantasy game is the best, is just that; an opinion. I have never made it a secret, that I believe that it is either the 7th, or the 9th installment in the aforementioned series that deserves the highest spot on the list, with Final Fantasy VI… Continue reading Final Fantasy VI (SNES/PS1) Review: The Greatest JRPG?

Final Fantasy IV (SNES/PS1) Review

Final Fantasy IV (1991) was the turning point of the series; its predecessors before it focused more on presenting a huge epic quest rather than a compelling narrative. With FFIV Sakaguchi, and his crew finally managed to combine a compelling ( for a Final Fantasy game at the time) tale with a globe trotting quest.… Continue reading Final Fantasy IV (SNES/PS1) Review

Final Fantasy (PS1) Origins Edition Review

And so, almost seven years after playing the Legendary Final Fantasy VII, I found myself finishing the game that started it all, the original Final Fantasy. Oh what irony, in 1987 the Final Fantasy series was born on the NES, and a decade later in 1997 Final Fantasy VII in PS1 (considered by many as… Continue reading Final Fantasy (PS1) Origins Edition Review

Dragon Warrior (Quest JP) VII (PS1) Review

I am free! That is the first thought that popped in my mind the moment after the credits rolled and the Message “the End” appeared on the screen. I had been brutalized, enslaved, and mentally imprisoned by the highest selling PS1 game of all time in Japan. The game? The 7th installment in the long running… Continue reading Dragon Warrior (Quest JP) VII (PS1) Review

Chrono Trigger (SNES/PS1) Review: A Timeless JRPG

I am impressed. Chrono Trigger, which was first released in the SNES in 1995, has always inexplicably lived under the shadow of the great Final Fantasy VI. I think Chrono Trigger is every bit as good as FFVI was, and then some. Since playing Final Fantasy VII and Ocarina of time, I have enjoyed many… Continue reading Chrono Trigger (SNES/PS1) Review: A Timeless JRPG

Chrono Cross (PS1) Review

The recent announcements informing that Hironobu Sakaguchi (FF series creator and a driving force behind the Chrono Series), Nobuo Uematsu (Master composer of the FF series) and Masato Kato (Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross’s master mind) among others are leaving or have left Squaresoft to create their own studios, mark as I have preaching for… Continue reading Chrono Cross (PS1) Review

Brave Fencer Musashi (PS1) Review

Brave Fencer Musashi was a little PS1 action-RPG developed by SquareSoft, a company that excels at making Traditional RPGs. The game was billed as Square’s Zelda Killer, which was interesting, considering that the game tries to mimic Mario 64 more than Zelda itself. The game, however, had the misfortune of being released in the same… Continue reading Brave Fencer Musashi (PS1) Review

Arc The Lad: Twilight of the Spirits (PS2) Review

After almost four years of owning my PS2, one thing had become clear. The golden era of the RPGs had started with the release of FFVI and Chrono Trigger for SNES and had carried over into the release of Skies of Arcadia in the Dreamcast at which point the Golden Era was over. During those… Continue reading Arc The Lad: Twilight of the Spirits (PS2) Review
