This game was brilliant back then and has only gotten more brilliant with Origins and (hopefully) the new GBA game with it's extra dungeons and new enemies. It's the perfect role-playing game where you actually play out a role and chose your own path. You can go one place or you can go another. You can use these weapons or those, it's just amazing... Although I have to admit there were a few things wrong with the original (and the sequel for the GBA) and with the PS1 port (I know there were other ones but those are the only versions I've played thus far). With the original, the targeting system was atrocious as was the shop system (granted you couldn't have them actually walking around in the shops but it's still annoying none the less). In the PS1 version it was great, fixed all the problems.... but the game came with only 1 FMV. Why not incorporate a new ending movie? That would've been so cool... and make it so that I could actually use the Bestiary! Like it's going to do me any good in a non-battle menu command, and why not make it so you could unlock a special command that restored the original game's sound track. I would've been so much happier with it if I could hear the midi music used on the NES for this. And the GBA one's just going to be too easy. I mean it's not even allowing you to choose which difficulty to play the game under. I hope that I'm wrong on this last point... I really do since I loved the original game play. Regardless though, I loved this game in all it's incarnations and am looking forward to defeating Ultros on my GBA.
